5 starsMary has known Charles Brandon since childhood and doesn t hide her dislike But growing up she notices her feelings starting to change, yet she knows that a princess can t have a future with a duke Mary does her duty by marrying the old French king and after her husband dies, she and Charles follow their hearts knowing Mary s brother will be furious The book leanedtowards romance than straight historical fiction but unfortunately I couldn t feel the passion between Mary and Charles I kept waiting something to happen and sparks starting to fly but nothing I didn t really connect with Mary to be fully interested to know what happened with her She was too na ve and well maybe not too bright And of course beautiful Which we heard many, many times And there were too much sneaking around corners and sec Okay so this had to be a DNF even before page 100 I started over with The Tudors on netflix and was so in the mood for a Tudor history book and decided to start this one and tbh I was BORED beyond compare, the writing wasn t cutting it, it was overly descriptive and focusedon that, the characters were flat and bland, and yet I LOVE LOVE LOOOOVE Henry VIII court for some reason so lasting less than 100 pages for the first time ever, and despite not finishing a book, I decided to just call it quits and honestly proud of myself that I just did a DNF haha I seriously have a hard time not DNF ing and need to get in that habit and know that it s 100% okay to quit a book I m not enjoying and I DEFINITELY wasn t enjoying this And I m so disappointed and it sucks crying internally plus i can see why it didn t get many good rev Ms Haeger s characters are flat and her plot as threadbare as one of Catherine of Aragon s dresses She also doesn t hesitate to dust off every ridiculous romance novel cliche she can get her hands on.
The worst part of this book for me, though, was how Ms Haeger seems to go out of her way to deliberately introduce factual errors into her books that pull even a moderately knowledgeable reader right out of the story I know, I know it s horrifically unfair for me to expect that the writer would expend the immense energies required to type Catherine of Aragon into Google Image Search before describing her appearance in minute detail Ridiculous that I expected her to double check Mary Tudor s actual date of birth in Bored Bored Bored Mary Rose should be a soothslayer.

Even imagining that Mary and Charles looked like Gabrielle Anwar and Henry Cavill from The Tudors doesn t make this book work The writing s just plain bad Their actual story is fascinating it s one of those romances that really needs to be tackled by a good writer Someone good also needs to tackle the story of Henry VIII and Mary s sister Margaret, who married into Scotland and got a divorce when her own brother couldn t, but I digress.
I adore the against the odds love story between Charles Brandon Henry VIII s friend, but a commoner and Mary Tudor Henry s sister, and destined for a European royal marriage , and in this book their tale is told simply, easily and romantically It won t appeal to serious historical fiction readers as it s fluffy and cute, but the swoony sap in me really enjoyed it Picturing Henry Cavill from the TV series The Tudors as Brandon was the icing on the cake For Fans Of The Tudors Comes A Captivating Drama About The Only Woman Who Could Defy Henry VIII And Keep Her Life Mary Tudor, The Headstrong Younger Sister Of The Ruthless King Henry VIII, Has Always Been Her Brother S Favorite But Now She Is Also An Important Political Bargaining Chip When She Is Promised To The Elderly, Ailing King Louis Of France, A Heartbroken Mary Accepts Her Fate, But Not Before Extracting A Promise From Her Brother When The Old King Dies, Her Next Marriage Shall Be Solely Of Her Choosing For Mary Has A Forbidden Passion, And Is Determined, Through Her Own Cunning, Courage, And Boldness, To Forge Her Own Destiny The Secret Bride Is The Triumphant Tale Of One Extraordinary Woman Who Meant To Stay True To Her Heart And Live Her Life Just As Her Royal Brother Did By Her Own Rules I ll give it a solid three stars Wasn t spectacularly amazing, nor was it awful Honestly, I was impressed how much Haeger stuck to the legitimate history No manipulating births or who was around or anything All the liberties she took were ones that didn t impact anything at all See, Phillipa Gregory The actual history can be interesting without fucking with everything It can be interesting and enthralling to read Although, I would love to read her take on the romance between Mary and Charles A great pro for this book was the characters Mary had enough spitfire and enough common sense to her She knew what to say and when, which is so important If she had been too outspoken, I would have honestly been shocked Charles had a lot of depth to him as well I m not familiar with his history, sadly, but it was great how Haeger incorporated his family situation into it, which really deepene I ve always been fascinated with the Tudor Court, but a lot of books I ve found over the years tend to focus mostly on Henry VIII and his relationship with his six wives, as well as his two daughters So it was refreshing to find a book that was mostly focused on his younger sister Mary.
Now, as someone who is a bit of a sucker for romances in the Tudor Era, the love between Mary Tudor and Charles Brandon has always been something that I ve loved to read about Regardless of how fictitious the work might be due to a limited number of records to properly record the truth, their love caused quite the scandal when it happened Charles was a Duke only by the grace of his best friend, Henry VIII, while Mary was born a Pr I have yet to figure out why Henry VIII and those that surround his life seem to interest me a great deal I have become hooked on the show The Tudors and have enjoyed the character of Charles Brandon so to find this story to be about the love between him and Mary Tudor, Princess of England, it was worth a shot.
Haeger is a new author to me but her writing style has left me happy with the book She trying very hard to incorporate as much history into her tales while still making the story sufficiently interesting for the reader Her story was easy to read and entertaining throughout She did a wonderful job of capturing the personalities of the characters she writes for making her an author I would consider again.
