Bookish Ardour’s Thank You Prize #4

To thank my wonderful readers, long-time and new, I have decided to run a weekly competition. Up for grabs will be ARCs, pre-releases, and the victims of my occasional library-culling. Some of these are pre-loved and some of these have never even been flicked through.

For Australian readers only, apologies international readers! Overseas postage is just too expensive.

Competitions open on 7am Sunday mornings, run till 7pm Friday evenings, and then I will randomly draw a winner that Saturday! I’ll have the prize posted to you on the Monday, but I won’t tell you beforehand. It’s a surprise!

This week’s Thank You Prize is;

 The Forbidden Queen by Anne O’Brien

The Forbidden QueenAn innocent pawn 

A kingdom without a king 

A new dynasty will reign… 

1415. The jewel in the French crown, Katherine de Valois, is waiting under lock and key for King Henry V. While he’s been slaughtering her kinsmen in Agincourt, Katherine has been praying for marriage to save her from her misery. But the brutal king wants her crown, not her innocent love. 

For Katherine, England is a lion’s den of greed, avarice and mistrust. And when she is widowed at twenty-one, she becomes a prize ripe for the taking—her young son the future monarch, her hand in marriage worth a kingdom. 

This is a deadly political game, one the dowager queen must learn fast. The players—the Duke of Gloucester, Edmund Beaufort and Owen Tudor—are circling. Who will have her? Who will ruin her? This is the story of Katherine de Valois.
