When Kitty Tylney's best friend, Catherine Howard, worms her way into King Henry VIII's heart and brings Kitty to court, she's thrust into a world filled with fabulous gowns, sparkling jewels, and elegant parties. No longer stuck in Cat's shadow, Kitty's now caught between two men--the object of her affection and the object of her desire. But court is also full of secrets, lies, and sordid affairs, and as Kitty witnesses Cat's meteoric rise and fall as queen, she must figure out how to keep being a good friend when the price of telling the truth could literally be her head.

Review:

In modern times, Cat would most likely be a cheerleader; the king, captain of the football team. But the royal backdrop with historical underpinnings makes a far more interesting story Readers can practically feel the embroidered ball gowns and hand-stitched lace. The Los Angeles Times

"I believe I found my new favorite series"- MTV.com

Longshore, who's clearly done her historical homework, takes full advantage of the Tudor standards. . . and surroundings. . . but Cat is a completely contemporary American teenager. BCCB

Longshore writes a believable novel of historical fiction with well-developed characters and entertaining . . . plot twists. VOYA

A good, juicy story . . . royally riveting for the reader. Booklist

A substantive, sobering historical read, with just a few heaving bodices. Kirkus Reviews
