After the death of his third wife, Jane Seymour, King Henry VIII of England decides to take a new wife, but this time, not for love. The Boleyn Inheritancefollows three women whose lives are forever changed because of the king’s decision, as they must balance precariously in an already shaky Tudor Court. Anne of Cleves is to be married to Henry to form a political alliance, though the rocky relationship she has to the king does not bode well for her or for England. Katherine Howard is the young, beautiful woman who captures Henry’s eye, even though he is set to marry Anne. Her spirit runs free and her passions run hot—though her affections may not be returned upon the King.

Throughout the country, her name is known for malice, jealousy, and twisted lust. The Boleyn Inheritance is a novel drawn tight as a lute string about three women whose positions brought them wealth, admirations, and power, as well as deceit, betrayal, and terror.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Historical powerhouse Gregory again brings the women of Henry VIII’s court vividly to life…Rich in intrigue and irony, this is a tale where readers will already know who was divorced, beheaded or survived, but will savor Gregory’s sharp staging of how and why.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
