I really enjoyed this book, it was a quick read and my interest was piqued due to catching up on "The Tudors" recently. On that show, Charles Brandon is portrayed by Henry Cavill and he is so ridiculously hot that the lines of reality and history have now blurred, and I enjoyed picturing Cavill as I read about Brandon! It was nice to read some historical fiction about a subject you don't hear much about (the Charles/Mary Tudor romance), there's a lot out there about Henry and the unfortunate Six, but not a lot about his sister(s). I wonder if his other sister, Margaret, has a story that could be as interesting as Mary's; it sounds like she was betrothed to the King of Scotland for her first marriage for political reasons, and then when he died she also went against her brother's wishes and married for love the second time as well. To loosely quote the book, it seems like his sisters were the only two women in his life who could openly go against his commands and still keep their heads.....
