The Rogue's Princess by Eve Edwards (Published by Penguin Books UK, July 7, 2011)
1586 – London, England. Sixteen-year-old Mercy Hart is the daughter of one of London’s richest – and strictest – cloth merchants. Kit Turner is an actor and the illegitimate son of the late Earl of Dorset. A chance encounter finds Kit falling for the beautiful Mercy’s charms, but their love is forbidden. A merchant’s daughter and a vagabond – it simply cannot be. If Mercy chooses Kit she must renounce her family name and leave her home. Will she favour duty over true love, or will she give Kit his heart’s desire?
I absolutely loved the author's first YA Tudor romance, The Other Countess, which was one of my favorite books of 2010, and am waiting now for her second book, The Queen's Lady, to arrive in the mail (was just released in the UK). I am very excited there is going to be a third book as well and I can't wait to read it! For US readers who don't like to order from the UK, according to Amazon The Other Countess will be published in the US on July 12, 2011.
