As It Pleases the King 
The King's Pleasure Book 1 
by Sara Harris 
Genre: Medieval Romance 


February 1542, London
Catherine Howard, Queen Consort of England, faces the executioner's axe.
King Henry VIII needs a new wife.

Lady Bridget Denny and her cousin, Lady Elizabeth, have fallen into favor with His Majesty's groomsmen. They are taken to Court to be judged for the position of the next queen, but Bridget fears the title of Queen of England is little more than a royal death sentence. The woods surrounding the castle are deep and dark and hold many secrets-perhaps there is room for one more.

Bridget is determined to escape the lusty king. But can she survive his royal executioner? 






Sara is a mother of four, animal lover and advocate, and conservationist. Little House on the Prairie, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, and Lonesome Dove are among her favorite shows/movies and books. Sara holds her B.A. in History and is the author of the historical romance series, An Everlasting Heart, from 5 Prince Publishing and recently debuted into the children's book realm with Chunky Sugars (5 Prince Kids), written for her own chunky baby.

Tower Green Scaffold

February 13, 1542

I stood beside Elizabeth. The new emerald green shoes I’d

been given by my attending maids crunched in the thin

layer of frost that covered the ground. Earlier in my dressing

suite, one of the servants whispered that the color matched

that of my eyes. I wasn’t sure I believed her.

The newly risen sun did little to brighten the overcast sky that

cloaked the scaffold on the Tower Green.

“Never before have I seen so many people in one place,” Elizabeth

mused. “And here we are, in the front row to the Queen of

England’s execution.”

The fancy breakfast of quail’s eggs and French toast soured in

my stomach as Elizabeth chattered on, almost giddy. “Surely this

woman is the most hated of all His Majesty’s queens.”

Knots pushed burning bile into my throat. Still, Elizabeth continued.

“It has been widely whispered that even her own uncle,

the Duke of Norfolk, now despises her. He calls her, among many

other things, a common prostitute.”

Thankfully several people pushed between us, bound for the

scaffold, and saved me from having to respond to my cousin.
