In A ROSE FOR THE CROWN, we meet one of history’s alleged villains through the eyes of a captivating new heroine–the woman who was the mother of his illegitimate children, a woman who loved him for who he really was, no matter what the cost to herself.

As Kate Haute moves from her peasant roots to the luxurious palaces of England, her path is inextricably intertwined with that of Richard, Duke of Gloucester, later King Richard III. Although they could never marry, their young passion grows into a love that sustains them through war, personal tragedy, and the dangerous heights of political triumph.

Anne Easter Smith’s impeccable research provides the backbone of an engrossing and vibrant debut from a major new historical novelist.

    " So glad I picked up this book -- it was certainly on a whim, and very worthwhile. The story of Kate Haute will stay with me for a long, long time, until it starts to fade, and then I'll read it again. I am a huge fan of heroic women in a man's world, and Kate is definitely a strong one who moulded history alongside her lifelong love, Richard III. "

    " I had to star this one over and over and over. By the third time, I finally got into it, but it did take about 200 pages for the story to pick up. If you have a lot of time, please read this, but for the "quick read" or "airport read" you'd be better off with something else. "

    " I dislike writing a review for this because I usually am able to tell exactly what I like and what I don't like. With this book, I cannot. But for some reason it caught me quickly and I hung on to the end. There are some slow parts, but they are well placed and the lost sleep was worth it for the joy of the read. "

    " I adored this book. It was another read in 24 hours books. Sadly I haven't been very impressed by the author's subsequent books. "
