Free book (nook/Kindle) - Secrets of the Tudor Court [Historical Fiction]

Secrets of the Tudor Court by D.L. Bogdan, is free courtesy of Kensington.

This is actually not a romance; I've read it and while it's moderately ranty and sensationalistic (I think the author got her history from watching The Tudors TV series more than out of actual scholarly texts), it's actually a mildly interesting look at the standard goings-on at the English court of that time period from the viewpoint of a very minor historical figure.

Worth a read if you're interested in the late-era Tudors. Not so much worth a buy at the usual asking price if you're not a completionist of derivative fictional works based upon them.

Currently free from B&N, slated for free @ Amazon (linked for your pricedrop check convenience); a repeat freebie for both. May or may not show up at Sony (again) and Kobo, since sometimes Kensington is generous with all the stores, and sometimes only with one.

Description
When young Mary Howard receives the news that she will be leaving her home for the grand court of King Henry VIII, to attend his mistress Anne Boleyn, she is ecstatic. Everything Anne touches seems to turn to gold, and Mary is certain Anne will one day become Queen. But Mary has also seen the King's fickle nature and how easily he discards those who were once close to him...

Discovering that she is a pawn in a carefully orchestrated plot devised by her father, the duke of Norfolk, Mary dare not disobey him. Yet despite all of her efforts to please him, she too falls prey to his cold wrath. Not until she becomes betrothed to Harry Fitzroy, the Duke of Richmond and son to King Henry VIII, does Mary finds the love and approval she's been seeking. But just when Mary believes she is finally free of her father, the tides turn. Now Mary must learn to play her part well in a dangerous chess game that could change her life-and the course of history.
