Summary (From the publisher):

He was the last-born son of the Duke of York and the last Plantagenet king. He was Richard III, a complex man living in tumultuous times...

Caught in the vicious power struggle that history has called The War of the Roses, Richard had been raised in the shadow of his charismatic brother Edward. At nineteen and against all odds, Edward had defeated the House of Lancaster and claimed the English throne for York. Famous for his sensual appetites and his preference for the expedient over the correct, Edward nonetheless found in his younger brother Richard and unfailingly loyal ally.

Richard himself was repaid for his allegiance; he was dening nothing, except the one thing he wanted most in life - the right to wed the woman he adored, Anne Neville. Their love would haunt them both, and add to the tragedy of Richard's eventual defeat at the hands of the Tudors.
