Mistress to the Crown

(2013)
A novel by

 
 
My name is Elizabeth Lambard. I'm better known as the notorious whore, 'Jane Shore' -- mistress to King Edward IV.

The day Lord Hastings came into her husband's shop, Elizabeth saw the opportunity she had waited 12 years for -- a way to separate herself once and for all from her dull, impotent husband, William Shore. The handsome stranger presented not only the chance to partake in the dance of desire, but legal counsel to annul her 12 year marriage.

She did not, however, foresee her introduction to his friend, the King of England, nor her future at his side...and in his bed. From this unlikely alliance, Elizabeth is granted severance from Shore, and finds herself flourishing in the radiance of the King's admiration. But she soon finds that her new position comes at a terrible price -- her family are shunning her, the people of London label her a harlot and the Queen's family want her to burn in Hell.

So long as King Edward and Lord Hastings stay close, Elizabeth is safe. However, her beloved Ned falls ill and Lord Hastings falls out of favour. Can Elizabeth's wiles keep her out of trouble? Or will they lead her to the hangman's noose?
