Prisoner of the Queen by E Knight (Book Tour)

I have served three queens in my life. One was my sister, one was my savior, and one my bitterest enemy.

Knowing she was seen as a threat to the Queen she served, Lady Katherine Grey, legitimate heir to the throne, longs only for the comfort of a loving marriage and a quiet life far from the intrigue of the Tudor court. After seeing her sister become the pawn of their parents and others seeking royal power and then lose their lives for it, she is determined to avoid the vicious struggles over power and religion that dominate Queen Elizabeth’s court. Until she finds love—then Kat is willing to risk it all, even life in prison.

I vividly remember the first time I read about Lady Jane Grey and being stunned, thinking this has got to be fiction.  Surely this didn't actually take place, how could parents deliberately treat their daughters like this.  Resigned into acceptance remembering that this was Tudor England.

Eliza Knight has written a captivating story that brings to life a stormy period in history.  Lady Katherine Grey, not just sister to the nine day queen but also an heir to the throne of England herself.  The author was able to capture the feel of Tudor England, she portrayed this young woman with her hopes and dreams of a future, of love, marriage and motherhood, all things denied her sister.  Though Katherine finds love she is at the mercy of both Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth (who also views her as a threat to her crown).

An emotional story, full of jealous rivalry, scandal and heartache.  These are women with the blood of Henry VIII running through their veins, how could it be anything but.
