Yet another young female has caught the eye of the aging King Henry Tudor. This time it is fifteen-year-old Catherine Howard, cousin to Anne Boleyn. Less than a year has passed since her arrival at court, and she is now the Queen of England. Catherine\'s new life of luxury and being the king\'s \"rose without a thorn\" is different. But Catherine\'s past haunts her, so she must be careful. She dreams of that kiss she shared with her (distant) cousin, Thomas Culpeper. A perfect kiss. Her relations with other men. But all must stay a secret, or death caused by treason could come her way. Being the huge historical fiction fan I am, I just had to buy this book when I could find it around. This was one of the novels I couldn\'t put down, because I really wanted to continue on and find out what was going to happen. There isn\'t much else to say, aside from I loved THE KING\'S ROSE. If you enjoy historical fiction, you should definitely check this one out. *Gold Star Award Winner!show more
