    One thought on “The Crimson Crown”

    1. The story begins in 1498 as That Upstart Henry Tudor (can you tell I don't like him?) maintains his hold on the crown despite the multiple pretenders claiming to be one of the lost princes in the tower - including the latest claimant Perkin Warbeck. Lucas Lovat returns from an extended tour of Europe where he traded goods for his father and earned quite the reputation as a lady's man, but also acted as a spy for Henry.

    2. Edith Layton took a historical mystery of the princes in the tower and gave it her own magic. This is the tale of Lucas Lovat, spy to King Henry VII and Megan Baswell, a ward of the king. Perkin Warbeck and his with Katherine Gordon are big characters. Ms Layton does a great job of weaving the story and putting her imprint on it. It is more historical fiction than Romance but I recommend it.

    3. I read this on holiday, but as I was visiting a lot of people there wasn't all that much time to sink into this and read. It took me a while to switch from paranormal (the Unleashing) to this somewhat slow-paced story set just after the War of the Roses and theorizing about the princes murdered in the Tower. Eventually I got into it and my only real regret is that I wasn't able to finish in time to leave it with a friend who I think would have enjoyed it. I remain a Layton fan. The cover is a bi [...]

    4. Excellent writing and a vivid plot showing knowledge of the history of Edward and Richard, the missing nephews of Richard III. Ms Layton has a great imagination and has invented a believable possibility as to the mystery of their disappearance and their fate.
