COME AND PARTY LIKE IT’S 1520! At the extraordinary Field of Cloth of Gold.
Ambition! Love! Intrigue!

Meet the Howards. One of the most powerful families in Tudor England.

Thomas Howard. An indomitable old man approaching eighty: soldier, charismatic courtier, politician. After a calamitous period of disgrace, his family, renowned for their good looks and charm, are once more riding high at the court of Henry VIII.

A proud ‘phoenix’ rising from the ashes, will Thomas’s bold vow be fulfilled?

“If I have anything to do with it, we Howards will live forever.”

Danger stalks the corridors of the royal courts of England, Scotland, and France. Uneasy lies the head beneath a crown. Every ruler, a fickle bedfellow. Or a sworn enemy.

On either side of the Narrow Sea, Tristan, Valentine, Cecily and Nicolas are partly unaware of each other, and certainly oblivious to what Dame Fortune has in store for them.

“Nicolas laid his lute to one side, hardly bothering to stifle a yawn of boredom. Nevertheless, he couldn’t escape the fact he’d agreed to take on a new wife….”

Explosive family secrets are concealed behind the ancient walls of castles in three lands. But… “There are no secrets that time does not reveal.”
