Reluctant Queen tells the story of Mary Rose Tudor, Henry VIII's defiant little sister. Here's the blurb:

Mary, the beautiful, younger sister of English king, Henry VIII, reluctantly agrees to marry the aged and sickly Louis XII of France. But before agreeing, she extracts Henry's promise that she may please herself for her second marriage. Mary is deeply in love with the low-born Charles Brandon, her brother's boon companion, and is determined to wed Brandon should King Louis die.

At the French court, Mary is pursued relentlessly by her aged husband's womanizing son-in-law, Francis. And with the death of her husband and Francis's elevation to the French throne and absolute power, her situation becomes desperate. Unprotected, Mary is a captive prey to Francis's lust for her.

Will she ever be free to go to her lost love? Because since Louis's death, Mary has become increasingly anxious about the rumors she heard concerning her brother's plans for her future. Did Henry intend to push her into another loveless marriage to suit himself and the State?

King Henry sends Charles Brandon to the French court on a diplomatic mission. Desperate, Mary persuade him to go through a secret marriage with her.

Then, fearfully, they await Henry's reaction, aware that no one, not even his much-loved younger sister, defies him with impunity.

Here's the link.



Good to see something done on Mary especially after The Tudors completely ignored the real story. They combined Mary and Margaret, thus wiping out the entire Stuart line. They had Margaret/Mary marry the King of Portugal, for heaven's sake.

So, here's a chance for readers to get the real history.
