The Boleyn King

The Boleyn King


Long live Henry IX!

Just seventeen years old, King Henry IX, known as William, is anxious to prove himself. With the French threatening war and the Catholics’ rebellion, he trusts only three people: his older sister Elizabeth; his loyal counsellor, Dominic; and Minuette, a young orphan raised as a royal ward by William’s mother, Anne Boleyn.

Against a tide of secrets, betrayal, and murder, William finds himself fighting for the very soul of his kingdom – and for his right to marry for love not duty. . .


  • Imaginative . . . an exciting, action-driven plot containing strong doses of both intrigue and romance... an original and entertaining read that’s reminiscent of the best of Philippa Gregory

About the author

Laura Andersen

Laura Andersen has one husband, four children, and a university degree in English that she puts to non-profitable use by reading everything she can lay her hands on. Books, shoes, and travel are her fiscal downfalls, which she justifies because all three ‘take you places.’ She loves the ocean (but not sand), forests (but not camping), good food (but not cooking), and shopping (there is no downside.) She lives in Massachusetts with her family.
