Win a Signed Copy of The Tudor Wife by Emily Purdy






Tabby enjoyed hosting the last giveaway so much, and she is in a good mood because her new toy birds arrived in today's mail, so she has decided to do it again, this time with a copy of the British edition of The Boleyn Wife called The Tudor Wife, published under my British pen name Emily Purdy. This edition is not sold in bookstores or online in the USA, only in the UK. To enter, please leave a comment for Tabby. Contest ends 5/12, US residents only please.



THE TUDOR WIFE by Emily Purdy



Hell Hath No Fury...



Shy, plain Lady Jane Parker feels out of place in Henry VIII's courtly world of glamour and intrigue--until she meets the handsome George Boleyn. Overjoyed when her father arranges their marriage, her joy is abruptly cut short when she meets Anne...
George Boleyn is completely devoted to his sister; and as Anne’s circle of admirers grows, so does Jane’s resentment.



Becoming Henry’s queen makes Anne the most powerful woman in England; but it also makes her vulnerable, as the King is desperate for an heir. When he begins to tire of his mercurial wife, the stage is set for the ultimate betrayal.



Encompassing the reigns of four of Henry’s wives, from the doomed Anne to the reckless Katherine Howard, THE TUDOR WIFE is an unforgettable story of ambition and jealousy, combining the sumptuous historical detail of Philippa Gregory’s novels with the lust and authenticity of the hugely successful TV series THE TUDORS.




Please note The Tudor Wife by Emily Purdy is published in the USA as The Boleyn Wife by Brandy Purdy.

It is hard to imagine trying to survive in such an atmosphere. I don't think I would be cut throat enough. However, one never knows what they are capable of until challenged.
I look forward to reading this book.

Tabby is adorable...my kitty was so bad last night he got into the cupboard and dragged out a 2 pound bag of granola and tore it all open all over my kitchen floor. Ninja is so bad or maybe it is the dog setting him up yet he is too stupid for that.

No need to enter me just had to see tabby.
