Hollywood Crush has moved! come with us to mtv news »

TarnishAfter loving Katherine Longshore's "Gilt," I couldn't wait to read her second "Royal Circle" series novel—especially when I found out it followed Anne Boleyn's scandalous story. And if I thought I had a historical crush on King Henry VIII, I had no idea that Sir Thomas Wyatt was prowling just around the corner. Seriously, Crushers, swoon overload. A charming and charismatic poet who believes you deserve an extraordinarily epic love? Forget Peeta or Jace, Team Wyatt all the way! Needless to say, as soon as I started "Tarnish," I was hooked.

Anne Boleyn's story is one that's been told for centuries. But Katherine presents her in a unique way, showing readers that before His Majesty ordered Anne's execution, she was simply a girl determined to give herself a bright future. The book opens showing Anne as the odd girl out. Having been away in France, everything about her is different. From keeping her trendy French style to refusing to tame her witty commentary, Anne is unwilling to blend into the background. Even when she tries, she doesn't know how to hold her tongue and fall in step with a society that expects women to be seen and not heard. But when Anne makes a life-changing bet with Thomas to escape an arranged marriage, how she's seen could lead to her demise—or if she plays her cards right—her rise. She could end up as nothing or she could finally become something.

You may think you know the story of Anne Boleyn, but before she lost her head at the hands of her tyrannical husband, King Henry VIII, she was a girl with big hopes and dreams for her future. Following the success of "Gilt," author Katherine Longshore is back with "Tarnish"—the second book in her "Royal Circle" series, which tells Anne's iconic story like you've never read it before.

Anne Boleyn is the new girl. Since she's been away in France, everything about her is different—from her clothes to her sharp tongue to her unwillingness to blend in with the rest of the ladies in the Tudor court. She doesn't know how to keep silent and fall in step with a society that revolves around gossip and expects women to be seen and not heard. But when Anne makes a life-altering bet with charismatic and romantic poet Thomas Wyatt to escape a loveless, arranged marriage, how she's seen could lead to her demise.
