In the autumn of 1558, church bells across England ring out the joyous news that Elizabeth I is the new queen. Elizabeth's excited triumph is short-lived. She has inherited a bankrupt country where treason is rampant and foreign war a certainty. Her only chance for survival is to marry, but the one man Elizabeth desires is her childhood friend, the ambitious -- and married -- Robert Dudley. As the young couple falls in love, a question hangs in the air: can he really set aside his wife and marry the queen? Intelligent, romantic, and compelling, The Virgin's Lover is the story of a young woman on the brink of greatness. Download and start listening now!

    " I bounced back and forth between loving Elizabeth, hating her for her wrath, and feeling pity for our Virgin Queen. I love how this book describes a life our Queen could have struggled with. Really makes her come alive! "

    " I believe this is the final book in the Tudor saga that started with the "Constant Princess" and ends with "The Virgin's Lover". Good book, but not as good as its predecessors. This one bored me a little. I felt the same way about the 'Constant Princess". The middle 3 I liked. Per Philippa Gregory style, great historical fiction with a theory on an unsolved mystery. I like the way she finds that one loose thread in history and just pulls until she gets her own reality. I enjoy her writing. But I am getting tired of the Tudors :D. "
