The Tudor Heresy by Samantha Burnell
"Pulled right in to the story, currently reading the next one."
A Queen's Traitor by Samantha Burnell
"As much as I enjoyed the first instalment, this book is by far the better. I feel I really get to know Jack and Richard in this book, and the characters are more likeable.
I can’t wait to read the 3rd instalment - ‘A Queen’s Mercenary’ 👍"
A Queen's Spy by Samantha Burnell
"An inside look at the struggles for power and position during these times. We know the story history has told us but often we forget the story behind the story. Well written."
