Misfit
Fabulous tale of one woman who served all six queens of Henry VIII. Wow, historical romance doesn't get much better than this. This is the story of the fictional Kathryn Chase descended from Edward IV via the wrong side of the blanket and also related to the Howards, who from a very young girl starts serving Catherine of Aragon, and eventually serving as lady in waiting to all of Henry's queens, thus giving us a wondrous glimpse into the lives of those famous and ill fated queens. Unhappy in her...more

Recommends it for: any fan of Tudor fiction
This is one of my all-time favorite fictional accounts of the court of Henry VIII. It follows the story of Kathryn Chase, related to the Howards and Boleyns and a fixture at court. From her childhood in service to Catherine of Aragon to her term helping Catherine Parr, Kathryn has a bird's eye view to the pageantry, history and danger in the court of Henry VIII.

Hands down, my favourite of all the various Tudor novels out there. Smart, drop dead funny, with plenty of historical tidbits, and one of the best couples in HF around. Seriously, who wouldn't fall for John de Gael?

It was surprising to see Anne of Cleves...more

Loved this one! It took me forever to find a beat up old copy that wasn't outrageously priced. No loaning this one out!

This is an enjoyable romp set during the reign of Henry VIII. The heroine, Kathryn Chase, is fictional, but Abbey does a clever job of inserting her and the other fictional characters into a historical period believably, without messing around much with actual events. The picture she paints of Henry's court is shallow, lacking some of the political machinations I find interesting about the period, but the story is fast-paced, often witty, and fun to read regardless.
