I could not finish this book it was so bad. Apart from the misrepresentation of life at the royal court, the constant use of dinna and canna as scot's language the final straw for me was Jame IV father being mutilated at the battle of Bannockburn. Given it took place 1314 his father would have been about 185 when James IV was born. I would have expected some basis in fact even though this is a historical novel. Very Brigadoon.

First, it's worth noting that this is a re-release under a different name of The Forbidden Queen by D. L. Bogdan.

Unfortunately, The Tudor Princess wasn't my cup of tea. I picked up this book because I was intrigued by the premise. Whilst historical fiction on the Tudors seems to be everywhere these days, novels about Margaret Tudor, elder sister of King Henry VIII and Queen of Scotland, are few and far between. So I was quite interested in the idea of reading a novel about Margaret's life and her struggles.

The choice of pacing and the book's style of telling instead of showing were what stopped me from really enjoying it. Margaret expresses sadness on one page and excitement the next, a happy event occurs and a page later we've skipped a year and tragedy occurs (I'm avoiding giving examples as I don't want to give spoilers). I felt like the events of Margaret's life were being skimmed over, not explored in enough depth. As a reader I simply wasn't given the opportunity to care for any of these characters. That just doesn't move me, that doesn't tug at my heartstrings or make me feel in any way invested in what happens to these characters at all.When exciting or moving events occur off-screen, so to speak, and are related back to us the readers in a one line summary, you're basically cutting out the heart of the story. This is the meat of the plot! A writer wants to get their readers engaged in the events and characters of the story, and readers want to read a story they care about. When the events occur "off-screen" they lose a great deal of immediacy and feeling, and even worse when events are summarised and characters go from one emotion to the next and months and years pass in one page.

Awful, I couldn't finish this - I 'canna' understand why anyone would give this a 5 star rating and 'dinna' believe how readers could compare this with other historical writers like Gregory, Weir or Chadwick - can now see why it was only £1 to download on kindle.

It's dreadful - none of the characters are remotely believable and the vague attempt at evoking Scotland in the Tudor period with one reference to a kilt and the constant use of 'canna' and 'dinna' is just irritating. Rebranded to cash in on the success of Phillipa Gregory - don't waste your money.

I found the style of this to be very hard to get in to. I love history, historical novels but this just seems stilted and to be honest dull. This is a shame because she ,Margaret Tudor is a key figure in history about the politics between Scotland and England. I kept persevering but to be honest couldn't bother reading to the end.

Read this recently while on holiday, borrowed from the hotel. SO glad I didn't spend money on it! Only read to the end to find out what happened, should have just saved time and read it on Wikipedia. The characters are all flat caricatures, felt only her son James was given any personality at all. Very historically inaccurate, I threw the book across the room at the first mention of a kilt (those wouldn't come about for another 200 years!) Didn't evoke the feel of the country or time period at all, even the drama was so poorly written it was boring. Show, Ms. Bonnette, don't tell! I'll stick with my Philippa Gregory and Elizabeth Chadwick from now on. This just read like it was written by a university student who had never even set foot in the UK, let alone Scotland.

A new title. A new author's name. A new cover.

Yet EXACTLY the same book as one I'd purchased previously - The Forbidden Queen by D. L. Bogdan.

Why do this?

I've sent this one back for a refund and I won't be bothering with titles from *either* of these split personalities again.

I love books about the Tudors but this was not as good as a Philippa Gregory by a long way. I have read other Darcey Bonnette novels which I have enjoyed more. This seemed to be one long self pitying account of Margaret, wife of James IV of Scotland. Somehow I just couldn't sympathise with her.
