Anne Boleyn is the odd girl out. Newly arrived to the court of King Henry VIII, everything about her seems wrong, from her clothes to her manners to her witty but sharp tongue. So when the dashing poet Thomas Wyatt offers to coach her on how to shine at court—and to convince the whole court they're lovers—she accepts. Before long, Anne's popularity has soared, and even the charismatic and irresistible king takes notice. More than popularity, Anne wants a voice—but she also wants love. What began as a game becomes high stakes as Anne finds herself forced to make an impossible choice between her heart's desire and the chance to make history.

"Swoon overload . . . Funny, witty and entertaining, Tarnish is a must-read for anyone wanting to add invigorating drama and sensual romance to their bookshelf."
"Great for readers of romance, royal fiction and history, or those looking for a summer read that makes them think a bit, too." starred review
