Description

By the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a novel of passion and power at the court of a medieval killer, a riveting new Tudor tale featuring King Henry VIII’s sixth wife Kateryn Parr.

Kateryn Parr, a thirty-year-old widow in a secret affair with a new lover, has no choice when a man old enough to be her father who has buried four wives—King Henry VIII—commands her to marry him.

Kateryn has no doubt about the danger she faces: the previous queen lasted sixteen months, the one before barely half a year. But Henry adores his new bride and Kateryn’s trust in him grows as she unites the royal family, creates a radical study circle at the heart of the court, and rules the kingdom as Regent.

But is this enough to keep her safe? A leader of religious reform and the first woman to publish in English, Kateryn stands out as an independent woman with a mind of her own. But she cannot save the Protestants, under threat for their faith, and Henry’s dangerous gaze turns on her. The traditional churchmen and rivals for power accuse her of heresy—the punishment is death by fire and the king’s name is on the warrant...

From the bestselling author who has illuminated all of Henry’s queens comes a deeply intimate portrayal of the last: a woman who longed for passion, power, and education at the court of a medieval killer.

    Wonderfully entertaining book. Very well written. Gregory is becoming the Jeff Shaaura of the Royals. If you like historical fiction, you won't be disappointed.

    Never thought I would write this, but this is not one of her best. Have read every book she has written and this was a bore. I think she has run out of ideas, and is just filling the page with words. Better luck next time.

    The first half of the book is reduntant and often tedius. However, it picks up and becomes a “cant put it down” book.
  • Shocked: (

    I cannot believe I am about to say this: ( I did NOT enjoy this book. Gregory is my favorite author and I have read every single book she has written and loved every single one. This book was BORING! Towards the end, it was a little better. I still adore this author and I will continue to wait eagerly for her next book: )

    I love this writer. Her history is always spot on and the storytelling is good. The first half of Taming is a little boring and long. The second half is great! It gives a smelly, nasty picture of Henry Tudor and brings the fear he created in his world to life. I hope she will do another book on Parr, there are more interesting events in store for the Queen.
