Mary, the beautiful, younger sister of English king, Henry VIII, reluctantly agrees to marry the aged and sickly Louis XII of France. But before agreeing, she extracts henry's promise that she may please herself for her second marriage. Mary is deeply in love with the low-born Charles Brandon, her brother's boon companion, and is determined to wed Brandon should King Louis die. At the French court, Mary is pursued relentlessly by her aged husband's womanizing son-in-law, Francis. And with the death of her husband and Francis's elevation to the French throne, her situation becomes desperate. Unprotected, Mary is a captive prey to Francis's lust for her. Will she ever be free to go to her lost love? Because since Louis's death, Mary has become increasingly anxious about the rumours she heard concerning her brother's plans for her future. Did Henry intend to push her into another loveless marriage to suit himself and the State? King Henry sent Charles Brandon to the French court, Desperate, Mary persuaded him to go through a secret marriage with her. Then, fearfully, they await Henry's reaction, aware that no one, not even his much-loved younger sister, defies him with impunity.

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever,  we're going to be closed for Memorial Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Monday May 23rd-25th,  2020.

I know what you're thinking--what???  The whole country's been closed down for two months!  Whaddya mean, you're taking off?  Well, we haven't been closed.  We've been here working harder than ever, due to a wildly increased demand for our services, so honestly, the Crew and I desperately need these days away.  No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, May 26th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  And please, don't forget why we honor Memorial Day.  We should never--never--forget The Fallen.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
