One NOT about any of the six wives! Henry had plenty of other relatives. Or he did. Until his shaky right to the crown, persuaded him to execute them.

What must it have been like to be the little sister of infamous, English king, Henry VIII?

Remember, this is the king who went on to have six wives. Two of whom he had beheaded.

The teenage Mary Rose is his favourite sister. He even named his famous ship after her.  But he still pushed her into a hateful state marriage with ancient King Louis XII of France.

However, a reluctant Mary Rose, is as strong-willed as Henry. She’s also passionately in love, for the first  time.

So before she agrees to the match, Mary Rose extracts a promise from Henry. A promise she is determined he will keep.

REVIEWS

Very easy to read, very hard to put down. This made Mary Tudor so accessible and relatable.’ READER REVIEW

‘Thoroughly enjoyable.’ READER REVIEW

‘Really liked reading this book. it helped me understand so much more about Mary’s perspective of events, and her King Henry VIII (her brother’s) duplicity, coldness and greed where she was concerned. He made things financially miserable for the Brandons literally for their entire lifetime. He didn’t have to do that – and shouldn’t have done that to his beloved sister. 

‘Very much hope that author Geraldine Evans continues writing more about the Tudor’s (marriages, children or family) – or King Charles II mistress Barbara Castlemaine – or even Mary Queen of Scots. It will be a good read.’ READER REVIEW

kobo summer romance sale

A Gentle, Cornish Romance
*
After breaking off an abusive relationship with her fiancé, Tessa Morgan hoped for a fresh start in Cornwall: a new job, a new home, a new place.
*
Second chances. Couldn’t she do with some of those?
*
But she hadn’t even arrived when things started to go wrong: her ancient Mini had an accident with a motorbike; then it ran out of water. 
The man who she’d knocked off his bike clearly thought her unsafe to be on the road and told her so. Tessa gave as good as she got. And then she was forced to accept a lift on the back of his bike to the nearest garage, as the cliff-top road was lonely and empty of traffic. She certainly didn’t want to be stranded there for hours.
*
Feeling humiliated when they arrived at the garage and her reluctant Sir Galahad roared off without a backward glance, she wondered what else could go wrong.
*
She didn’t have to wait long to find out…

Wasn’t she gorgeous?

One not about any of the six wives! Henry had plenty of other relatives, most of whom, given his short-lived dynasty and shaky right to the crown, the always insecure Henry had executed throughout his reign in order to secure his throne.

Can you imagine what it must be like to be the little sister of infamous English king, Henry VIII? Remember, this is the king who went on to have six wives, two of whom he had beheaded.

And although the teenage Mary Rose is his favourite sister (he even named his famous ship after her), his shifting alliances and ruthless desire to have his own way, made him push the young and lovely Mary into a hateful state marriage with the ailing and ancient King Louis XII of France.

But, a reluctant Mary Rose, as strong-willed as Henry and passionately in love, for the first time, doesn’t give in easily. Before agreeing to the match, after a relentless campaign to get her to say yes, by her loving brother, Mary Rose extracts a promise from Henry. A promise she is determined he will keep.

Very easy to read, very hard to put down. This made a Mary Tudor so accessible and relatable to the reader.’ READER REVIEW

Thoroughly enjoyable.’ READER REVIEW

This is the cover for my new/old Rafferty novel. I’m still formatting it, but when I’ve finished, I’ll put it up at all retailers.

Severn House, my previous publishers, had the Rights to this one, but now I’ve got them returned. Severn had it priced much higher than my other books – i’ll be pricing it similar to my other books.
