As always, publication dates are subject to change. The full list of new royalty books will be published on the Royalty.nu Books page on July 1. Don’t want to wait that long? Then don’t! You can go over there right now to see all of the new books for May and June.
If I could only read one of the books listed above, I would pick Anna, Duchess of Cleves. (Anyone who has been reading this blog for a while knows I can’t resist books about Henry VIII.) Which book would you choose?
