Hello, my bibliophile darlings! Today, I’m helping reveal the cover for a historical retelling of Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII’s story, aptly named Anne & Henry! Exciting, right? Go check out the cover!
Anne & Henry by Dawn Ius
Wild, brazen, mischievous, bewitching
Driven, haunted, charming, magnetic
Apart, they are bound to destroy themselves.
Together, they are bound to destroy each other.
Henry Tudor’s life has been mapped out since the day he was born: student president, valedictorian, Harvard Law School, and a stunning political career just like his father’s. But ever since the death of Henry’s brother—perfect, high-achieving Arthur—his family has been twice as demanding. And now Henry’s trapped: forbidden from pursuing a life as an artist or dating any girl who’s not Tudor approved. Then Anne Boleyn crashes into his life.
Anne is wild, brash and outspoken. She is everything Henry is not allowed to be—or to want. But soon Anne is all he can think about. His mother, his friends, and even his girlfriend warn him away, yet his desire for Anne consumes him. Henry is willing to do anything to be with her. But once he has her, their romance could destroy them both. Inspired by the true story of Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII, Anne & Henry reimagines the intensity, love, and betrayal between one of the most infamous couples of all time.
Expected release: 2015

i wonder if this one will end up in a spectacular tragedy as well?
Great question ;) I hope not!
AH, I used to have an obsession with the Tudors growing up and seeing modern-day retelling of Henry & Anne is interesting! I like the premise and I love that Regina Flath designed the cover for Henry & Anne! I adore her work (she did Jennifer Echol’s Superlative series among other covers).
I’m so excited about Anne & Henry as well- what an exquisite retelling! I didn’t know the cover designer for this book was the same with the Superlatives! I love those. :)
Ooh, fun, congrats on getting to host the cover reveal! I’ve heard of (and read) novels about Henry VIII and his wives, but I’ve never heard of OR read a modern retelling of the same. It’s a unique subject, to say the least! Thanks for sharing it with us. :)
Thanks, Taylor! My knowledge about King Henry VIII is way basic but I’m looking forward to learning more about him through the parallels in this book! I definitely agree that such a retelling is very original. :)
This sounds so good! Eagerly awaiting 2015 :)
Right? 2015 is gonna be an amazing year for books!
