Publisher Description

From the author of The Creation of Eve, “an intoxicating tale of love, betrayal and redemption,”* comes a novel of passion and madness, royal intrigue and marital betrayal, set during the Golden Age of Spain.
Juana of Castile, third child of the Spanish monarchs Isabel and Fernando, grows up with no hope of inheriting her parents’ crowns, but as a princess knows her duty: to further her family’s ambitions through marriage. When she weds the Duke of Burgundy, a young man so beautiful that he is known as Philippe the Handsome, she dares to hope that she might have both love and crowns. He is caring, charming, and attracted to her—seemingly a perfect husband.

But when Queen Isabel dies, the crowns of Spain unexpectedly pass down to Juana, leaving her husband and her father hungering for the throne. Rumors fly that the young Queen has gone mad, driven insane by possessiveness. Locked away in a palace and unseen by her people for the next forty-six years, Juana of Castile begins one of the most controversial reigns in Spanish history, one that earned her the title of Juana the Mad.

Juana Reigns Supreme

A most intriguing story, I enjoyed it with great interest and could not put it down yet did not want to finish reading it and end my pleasure. It has made me more curious about the actual facts of Juana's life and thus I have continued reading about her. This is my second book by Lynn Cullen, the first was Mrs. Poe, another page turner that I enjoyed and shared with others. I plan to read all her books, she is an excellent story teller weaving together fact and fiction!
