I LOVE stories that revolve around the Tudors and this book (the first in the Royal Circle series) was one that I couldn’t get enough of. All three books are companions so you don’t have to worry about starting another series (trust me – I have that concern ALL the time). Longshore does a great job with the historical aspect in this book while inserting Kitty’s story as fiction. Definitely check out this, and the other books, when you can. I am considering a re-read myself now that I’ve been revisiting the summaries.

n the court of King Henry VIII, nothing is free--
and love comes at the highest price of all.
When Kitty Tylney's best friend, Catherine Howard, worms her way into King Henry VIII's heart and brings Kitty to court, she's thrust into a world filled with fabulous gowns, sparkling jewels, and elegant parties. No longer stuck in Cat's shadow, Kitty's now caught between two men--the object of her affection and the object of her desire. But court is also full of secrets, lies, and sordid affairs, and as Kitty witnesses Cat's meteoric rise and fall as queen, she must figure out how to keep being a good friend when the price of telling the truth could literally be her head.
