Book 2 in the Tudor Legacy Trilogy

Release Date ~ November 10, 2015

From the Publisher:  

The Virgin’s Spy is award-winning author Laura Andersen’s second novel about the next generation of Tudor royals—a mesmerizing historical novel filled with rich period detail, vividly drawn characters, and all the glamour and seduction of the fabled Tudor court.

Queen Elizabeth I remains sovereign of England and Ireland. For the moment, at least. An Irish rebellion is growing and Catholic Spain, led by the Queen’s former husband, King Philip, plans to seize advantage of the turmoil. Stephen Courtenay, eldest son of Dominic and Minuette, Elizabeth’s most trusted confidantes, has accepted a command in Ireland to quell the unrest. But the task will prove dangerous in more ways than one.

The Princess of Wales, Elizabeth’s daughter, Anabel, looks to play a greater role in her nation, ever mindful that there is only one Queen of England. But how is Anabel to one day rule a country when she cannot even govern her own heart?

Why this book?

I am a huge history buff and I love reading historical fiction. Ms. Anderson won me over with her Boleyn Trilogy series.   Her first book in the Tudor Legacy Trilogy, The Virgin's Daughter is a fantastic read as well.  I can't wait to read this second book in the series! 

What books are  you waiting for?

It's funny because I love historical movies and TV shows but not so much books. I hope you enjoy this one as much as you did the first one!
