London 1527. Marry or serve: for Honor Larke, the choice is clear. Unwilling to perish of boredom as an obedient wife, she leaves the home of her ward to attend Her Majesty Queen Catherine of Aragon.

It's a risky game, and swept into a tide of intrigue and danger that stretches across Europe, The Queen's Lady is about learn everything about passion, pride, greed - and the capricious nature of the King.
