Waiting on Wednesday - Brazen by Katherine Longshore

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Title: Brazen
Author: Katherine Longshore
 Publication: June 12th 2014 by Viking Juvenile 
Description: Mary Howard has always lived in the shadow of her powerful family. But when she’s married off to Henry Fitzroy, King Henry VIII’s illegitimate son, she rockets into the Tudor court’s inner circle. Mary and “Fitz” join a tight clique of rebels who test the boundaries of court’s strict rules with their games, dares, and flirtations. The more Mary gets to know Fitz, the harder she falls for him, but is forbidden from seeing him alone. The rules of court were made to be pushed…but pushing them too far means certain death. Is true love worth dying for?
I've read a couple of Katherine Longshore's books and I've enjoyed them immensely.  I think this one sounds right up my alley!


  1. It sounds interesting, but puzzling why if she is married to Fitz she can't see him alone? OR did I read the synopsis wrong? Hope you enjoy it. Here's My WoW

    1. Their marriage was never consummated. I've read that King Henry VIII's parents feared that too much sexual activity contributed to his older brother Aurthur's death. Being his only male child...he wasn't taking any chances lol.


I love comments!
