Posted December 2, 2011 by Melissa in Giveaway | 11 Comments


The hosts for this hop are Kathy from I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & 
 Alyson from Kid Lit Frenzy.  The dates: December 2nd through December 6th. There are lots of blogs participating and each has their own entry rules and geographic limits, so be sure to read the rules for each one. 


Up for grabs at this stop is a brand new hardcover copy of Carolly Erickson’s The Favored Queen:


Summary from Goodreads:

Born into an ambitious noble family, young Jane Seymour is sent to Court as a Maid of Honor to Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII’s aging queen. She is devoted to her mistress and watches with empathy as the calculating Anne Boleyn contrives to supplant her as queen. Anne’s single-minded intriguing threatens all who stand in her way; she does not hesitate to arrange the murder of a woman who knows a secret so dark that, if revealed, would make it impossible for the king to marry Anne.  


Once Anne becomes queen, no one at court is safe, and Jane herself becomes the object of Anne’s venomous rage when she suspects Jane has become the object of the king’s lust. Henry, fearing that Anne’s inability to give him a son is a sign of divine wrath, asks Jane to become his next queen. Deeply reluctant to embark on such a dangerous course, Jane must choose between her heart and her loyalty to the king.


Acclaimed biographer and bestselling novelist Carolly Erickson weaves another of her irresistible historical entertainments about the queen who finally gave Henry VIII his longed for heir, set against the excitement and danger of the Tudor Court.
