This HaBO comes from Michelle, who is looking for this historical romance:
I am looking for a romance novel that I want to say I read in the ’90’s or early 2000’s.
The only thing I remember about it was that there was a side character, a best friend of the main female character, who I believe is based on the real Elizabeth Woodville.
In the novel, this character is carrying on a secret affair with the King, or possibly future king Edward Plantagenet, and becomes pregnant with his child. Of course the main character is very concerned for her friend, but in the end Edward marries her-I think in a secret ceremony? Both the main female character and her friend serve as ladies-in-waiting, or at least are somehow a part of the English court.
Does anyone have any idea about this?
Ring any bells?
