From the moment William Somers first set foot in Henry VIII’s palace his heart belonged to a beautiful kitchen maid and his loyalty to a great king. But fools are destined to witness history, not make it, and so William must watch and jest as Henry pushes aside a loyal wife for a woman capable of bringing a kingdom to its knees. But when William’s dearest friend Mabel is forced to bend to an equally cruel fate in the forgotten depths of the kitchens will he find the strength to defend her?

Shelly is a prolific author who writes several genres but finds historical fiction her favorite. She has wanted to be an author ever since she came across Mary Stewart’s novel The Crystal Cave in the back corner of a small Kansas library when she was a kid. A lifelong Midwesterner she feels a sweeping familiarity with the plains and the people who call it home. Married with two beautiful children she devotes her free time to her family which includes not only people but two dogs, four cats, and a very talkative stray she has been trying to tame named Gary. She loves history, reading, writing, animals, and a well told ghost story—not necessarily in that order. Shelly hopes that she will always be awed by the simple miracles in life and see wonders all around, from the cultures and art of other places to the beauty of a wildflower dancing in the Kansas wind.
