'The Tudors' fan? Try 'The Invisible Infanta'. Only 93p!
Did you enjoy The Tudors? Love historical novels? Devoured Jean Plaidy, Norah Lofts et al? Fascinated by the Queen who sponsored Columbus?
Try The Invisible Infanta, the first book in a new series on Spain's Trastamara dynasty. It's all there: power, privilege, passion, madness, sacrifice ... but this first book focuses not on the well-known figures of Catherine of Aragon, Juana the Mad, or Isabella of Castile. Instead it gives a voice to Catherine and Juana's sister Maria, the forgotten princess.
Although a princess, Maria de Trastamara knows about living on the fringes and being the odd one out. Her parents are the famous Isabella and Ferdinand, her brother and sisters have had their futures mapped out since infancy, but she has been forgotten. Then she meets Juan de Castilla, an Indian who'd returned to Spain with Christopher Columbus in 1493, and suddenly she has something that is hers alone. But these are difficult and dangerous times, and even at Court there is always the dark threat of the Inquisition. Can Maria and Juan's friendship survive when tragedy propels Maria out of the shadows, forcing her to choose between friendship and family, love and duty...
The blog and trailer can be found here.

I'd love feedback on any or all of these!
Happy reading (and writing)!
