My preview snippet from “Six of One” AB
“Six of One”, coming out in Fall, 2011!
From Chapter Twenty-Four, Wherein the Wives Determine “Who’s on First?”
For all her demureness, Jane was like a pit bull when it came to letting go, and she was like a pit bull in one other way, as well: seeing Ann Boleyn about to smite her on the cheek again, Jane very smartly deflected the blow with a hearty bite to the fleshy part of Ann’s open hand. To my surprise, Ann opted to take the high road on this occasion and did not bite back. Instead, she swung around to Katharine of Aragon and motioned for the next draw of the cards. No one objected; in fact, Anne of Cleves quite glowed with approval. The card Ann Boleyn selected was the six of hearts. Throwing her head back again in exquisite laughter, she was, for a moment, true to her motto, the most happy.
“It looks as though I am going to have the last laugh for once, doesn’t it?”
