Wishing on Wednesday [15]

Wishing and hoping, and thinking and praying...

"In the Tudor age, ambition, power and charismatic allure are essential and Catherine Howard has plenty of all three. Not to mention her loyal best friend, Kitty Tylney, to help cover her tracks. Kitty, the abandoned youngest daughter of minor aristocracy, owes everything to Cat – where she is, what she is, even who she is. Friend, flirt, and self-proclaimed Queen of Misrule, Cat reigns supreme in a loyal court of girls under the none-too-watchful eye of the Dowager Duchess of Norfolk.

When Cat worms her way into the heart of Henry VIII and becomes Queen of England, Kitty is thrown into the intoxicating Tudor Court. It’s a world of glittering jewels and elegant costumes, of gossip and deception. As the Queen’s right-hand-woman, Kitty goes from the girl nobody noticed to being caught between two men – the object of her affection and the object of her desire.

But the atmosphere of the court turns from dazzling to deadly, and Kitty is forced to learn the difference between trust and loyalty, love and lust, secrets and treason. And to accept the consequences when some lessons are learned too late.

Don't let the cover turn you off! I just recently found out about this one and it instantly shot to the top of my must-have list. I have had an obsession with all things royal since I was a little girl. That Royal Diary series? Oh yeah, LOVED those. Let me tell you, the obsession hasn't lessened in the slightest. And the Tudors? Oh be still my heart. One of my absolute favorite royal families [and no I haven't watched the show but I really want to!]. Love, lust, secrets and treason? Oh yes please. I am, to quote the infamous Story Siren, PINING for this novel. I cannot wait to be able to read it.


  1. Oh, wow, Ash, I'm thrilled that you're waiting on GILT! And always delighted to meet someone Tudor (and royal) obsessed. I hope you enjoy it!

  2. Oh I'm sure I will. Thank you so very much for taking the time to actually comment on my post. That means the world. :D
