When her father is assigned the task of spying on the French Court, the charming and sweetly innocent Anne Boleyn is delighted by the thought of a new adventure. And she is not to be disappointed, for her beautiful sister, Mary, has been handed a mission: to let herself be seduced by the King of France in order to uncover his secrets. Mesmerized by the thrilling passion, intrigue, and betrayal that unfolds, Anne discovers the power of being a woman who catches the eye of a powerful king. And, as she grows into a beautiful young woman, she undergoes her own sexual awakening, each daring exploit taking her one step closer to the life that is her destiny.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The budding romance between Anne and her paramour Percy is feelingly described, and all the more poignant when one knows the outcome. Maxwell delivers a ripping piece of historical romance.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Lavishly imagined detail-regarding entertainment, dress and habits of the time-adds depth to this work. An accomplished rehabilitation of much-maligned Anne as an empowered woman.”

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 2/10/2014

    " This covers the years in Anne Boleyn's life that she spent in France...an interesting take on the debaucheries of the French court and of the coldheartedness of Thomas Boleyn as he used both Mary and Anne. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 2/5/2014

    " I really loved this book. It was different then others I'd read about Anne, though, that either lept from the time she was about 15 till her execution or just focused on her relationship with Henry. Even though this is fiction I think it gives new ideas to Anne and makes us wonder what happened in her childhood that caused her to turn out the way she did, both the good and the bad. It's a book that made me think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 2/2/2014

    " A coworker lent this book to me, & I'm glad that she did. It's a pretty fast read, & it gives a different perspective on Anne Boleyn. It tells the story - fiction, but somewhat based on truth, I'm sure - of her childhood & how she became opinionated, etc. "

    " Really interesting look at the much reviled Anne Boleyn's early life. Lots of juicey bits about life in the French court ;) Also a great analysis of the role of women and the options available to them during the time period. Book includes an interview w/ the author and questions for discussion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deena Scintilla | 1/25/2014

    " I love this period in history and all things Tudor but am very glad that I didn't live then. Most likely I would have probably been burned for heresy or for just having a big mouth. Anyway this book dealt with a less known time of Anne's life, pre- Henry, and her life at the court of the King of France. Oh, the debauchery! And yet she managed to save her deflowering for Henry altho her sister "the other Boleyn girl" wasn't so lucky. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devin | 1/25/2014

    " Great, but I love stories about Mary rather than Anne. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margie | 1/20/2014

    " Great book about Mary and Anne Boleyn's 8 yrs. at the French court under King Francois. It was raunchy, naughty, racy. It told of how Thomas Boleyn used his daughters to further advance himself in Henry VIII's court. Mary became the French court's whore, while Anne was ordered to spy on the king and report back to her father. The book ends when Anne returns to England and I assume that's where Maxwell's other Anne Boleyn book picks up. Really liked her writing style. "

    " Enjoying this book. Has an interesting POV on the Tudor court and relationships within it. "

    " Not as good as the Phillipa Gregory books on the Boleyns but still quite enjoyable!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amii Morrison | 12/22/2013

    " This story of Anne Boleyn is a good one, that talks more about her life before she was out in the English court. It talks about what happened when she was in the French court and how she learned things that would help her in her life to become Queen of England. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 12/6/2013

    " Very entertaining historical novel although way to crude for my taste. I think it could have been presented in a less tasteless way. "
