The Boleyn King by Laura Andersen

The Boleyn King (Boleyn Trilogy, #1)

What if Anne Boleyn produced the male heir Henry VIII wanted? William Tudor prepares to ascend the throne and usher England into a new Golden Age. He relies on his loyal childhood friends: his wise sister Elizabeth Tudor, steady Dominic and joyful Minuette. What will England’s future be as treacherous politics, forbidden romance and religious tensions threaten William’s rule?

William’s presence affects relationships with Europe and people who died in our timeline are still alive to plot. One romance evokes elements of the Arthur-Genevieve-Lancelot love triangle. The characters have vivid elements which grab attention such as Elizabeth’s loyalty encountering ambition. The royals strive to keep their emotions hidden while looking for others’ true motivations. The Boleyn King could be a match for those looking for alternate history, romance, Tudor England and/or a tale of royalty.
