The story of Audrey Malte, illegitimate daughter of Henry VIII’s royal tailor . . . or is she? Audrey has distinctive Tudor-red hair. And the king shows an extraordinary interest in her well-being. In sixteenth-century England, royal blood is a dangerous thing to inherit, even on the wrong side of the blanket.

“Another satisfying, page-turning addition to Emerson’s series” (Publisher’s Weekly)

“Readers with a voracious appetite for Tudor-set novels will take Emerson’s Secrets of the Tudor Court series to heart. It is more than the careful research, dramatic events, and lush details they savor; it is how Emerson merges little known historical personages and history into a powerful novel where ordinary people take center stage. This new outlook on history makes for realism, while tugging at readers’ hearts and stimulating minds to learn more about the era. Well-crafted historical fiction, romance and passion fill every page.” (Romantic Times)

The King's Damsel is the story of Thomasine Lodge, maid of honor to Princess Mary Tudor, sent to the court of Mary's father, Henry VIII, to spy on Henry's new wife, the beautiful and deadly Anne Boleyn.

from Publisher's Weekly: "Sparked by an actual letter written by a Spanish ambassador in 1534, Emerson creates a believable scenario rich in accurate detail where her fictional Thomasine strolls comfortably next to real-life figures."

from Fresh Fiction: "Emerson paints an impressively accurate portrait not only of King Henry VIII, but of Princess Mary and Anne Boleyn, as well. . . . Kate Emerson deserves a round of applause. . . . THE KING'S DAMSEL is simply perfect."
