Popular historical romance author Sara Harris is thrilled to unveil As it Pleases the King, which released to retail today, Wednesday, June 17, 2020, from WordCrafts Press. Set in the waning days of the reign of England’s King Henry VIII, As it Pleases the King is the first volume in Harris’s adventurous new Tudor Romance series, The King’s Pleasure.

It is February, 1542. Catherine Howard, the fifth wife of King Henry VIII is about to meet her fate. The lusty king is on the prowl for a new bride, and sends his royal groomsmen on a mission to scour the countryside to bring the brightest and most beautiful ladies to court in London. Among those who have found favor with His Majesty’s groomsmen are Lady Bridget Denny and her cousin, Lady Elizabeth. While Elizabeth is delighted with the prospect of possibly becoming the next Queen of England, Bridget fears that title comes with a royal death sentence.

The woods surrounding the castle are deep and dark and hold many secrets. Lady Bridget wonders if perhaps they can hide her, too. She boldly flees the castle and braves the fearsome woods, determined to escape the king. But can she survive his royal executioner?

As it Pleases the King has already proven to be a hit within the industry. The novel earned top honors in the Hearts Through History Romance Writers of America chapter’s annual Romance Through the Ages contest in the Ancient/Medieval/Renaissance category. And it debuted in Amazon.com’s Hot 100 New Releases chart in the Medieval Historical Romance category while still in pre-release.
