Only one woman could defy Henry VIII - and keep her life. Mary Tudor, the headstrong younger sister of the ruthless King Henry VIII, has always been her brother's favourite-but now she is also an important political bargaining chip. When she is promised to the elderly, ailing King Louis of France, a heartbroken Mary accepts her fate, but not before extracting a promise from her brother- When the old king dies, her next marriage shall be solely of her choosing. For Mary has a forbidden passion, and is determined, to forge her own destiny, through her own cunning, courage, and passionate boldness. The Secret Bride is the triumphant tale of one extraordinary woman who meant to stay true to her heart and live her life just as her royal brother did-by her own rules . . .
