In this New York Times bestseller that inspired the critically acclaimed Starz miniseries The White Queen, Philippa Gregory tells the tale of Anne Neville, a beautiful young woman who must navigate the treachery of the English court as her father, known as the Kingmaker, uses her and her sister as pawns in his political game. The Kingmaker’s Daughter—Philippa Gregory’s first sister story since The Other Boleyn Girl—is the gripping tale of the daughters of the man known as the Kingmaker, Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick: the most powerful magnate in fifteenth-century England. Without a son and heir, he uses his daughters, Anne and Isabel, as pawns in his political games, and they grow up to be influential players in their own right. At the court of Edward IV and his beautiful queen, Elizabeth Woodville, Anne grows from a delightful child to become ever more fearful and desperate when her father makes war on his former friends. Married at age fourteen, she is soon left widowed and fatherless, her mother in sanctuary and her sister married to the enemy. Anne manages her own escape by marrying Richard, Duke of Gloucester, but her choice will set her on a collision course with the overwhelming power of the royal family.

The Red Queentells the story of the child-bride of Edmund Tudor, who, although widowed in her early teens, uses her determination of character and wily plotting to infiltrate the house of York under the guise of loyal friend and servant, undermine the support for Richard III and ultimately ensure that her only son, Henry Tudor, triumphs as King of England. Through collaboration with the dowager Queen Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret agrees a betrothal between Henry and Elizabeth's daughter, thereby uniting the families and resolving the Cousins War once and for all by founding of the Tudor dynasty.

In the comfortable suburb where she lives, Heloise is just a mom, the youngish widow with a forgettable job who somehow never misses her son's soccer games or school plays. But in discrete hotel rooms throughout the area, she's the woman of your dreams - if you can afford her hourly fee. For more than a decade, Heloise has believed her unorthodox life to be a safe one; rigidly compartmentalized, maintaining no real friendships and trusting very few people. But now this secret life is under siege. Her once oblivious accountant is asking loaded questions about her business. Her longtime protector is hinting at new, mysterious dangers. Her employees can no longer be trusted. Her ex, the one who doesn't know he's the father of her son, is appealing his life sentence. And, one county over, another so-called 'suburban madam' has been found dead in her car, an apparent suicide... Can Heloise stay alive long enough to remake her life again, and save her son? Can she really expect to leave everything else behind?

Dark myths, medieval secrets, intrigue, and romance populate the pages of the first three books in the Order of Darkness series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Other Boleyn Girl—now available in one glittering paperback edition. In Changeling, the year is 1453 and all signs point to it being the end of the world. Forced to face the greatest fears of the dark ages—witchcraft, werewolves, madness—seventeen-year-olds Luca and Isolde embark on a search for truth, their own destinies, and even love as they take the unknown ways to the real historical figure who defends the boundaries of Christendom and holds the secrets of the Order of Darkness. And in Stormbringer, as Luca and Isolde continue their journey, their attraction grows with each passing day. Even as they try to remain focused on the mysteries they’ve been ordered to investigate, the tension between them builds. Then their budding, forbidden relationship is put on hold when a boy, Johann, and his army of children arrive in town. Johann claims to have divine orders to lead the children across Europe to the Holy Land, and the townspeople readily accept his claims. And when Johann’s prophecy begins to come true, Luca wonders if they have finally stumbled upon a real miracle. In Fool’s Gold, Luca and Isolde travel to Venice to expose a counterfeiting ring. But when Luca starts to investigate the original charge, the counterfeiter’s true goal is revealed—he plans to create the Philosopher’s Stone, a mystical substance said to be capable of turning base metals into gold and producing the elixir of life. All the evidence suggests that he succeeded in his task. But as Luca and Isolde get closer to the truth, they discover that reality may be more sinister than they ever could have imagined.

In Women Are Kingmakers Bishop Wellington Boone declares that women are God's Great Idea, created to fulfill the destiny of God through their unique power of influence. In every area of society, some women stand out from the crowd. Author Wellington Boone calls them Kingmakers. He writes, "They're the women that people remember. They're the women that people should listen to. They're the wives, mothers, teachers, and managers who helped others become what they are today. You don't see the mom behind a person who becomes great, but she's a Kingmaker, whether you see her or not. She's under acknowledged and under-appreciated, but she's a Kingmaker just the same. "A Kingmaker is the wife that every man wants. She's the woman you want to manage your company. She's the team player who helps you to win. For a Kingmaker, no task is too difficult; no sacrifice too great. She has an inner substance that makes a difference in the lives of others. She's a Kingmaker." Who are the Kingmakers? A Kingmaker has the power of influence over another person's life and the ability from God to make that person great. They're the Wives men love to come home to. They're the Mommas kids look for in the stands. They're the Managers who rebuild underperforming companies.
