A cross between Outlander and The Other Boleyn Girl, Emmie and the Tudor King is part one in a new YA saga in which a high-school girl gets sucked back in time and falls in love with a dreamy, but utterly doomed, Tudor king. It pitches to readers a touch too young for Outlander or Philippa Gregory, but who have an interest in star-crossed romance, as well as anyone drawn to this dramatic and unforgettable time period. The book has already been praised by America’s leading trade publication for independent presses, Foreword Reviews, YA Books Central, NYT-bestselling author Brigid Kemmerer (A Curse So Dark and Lonely), and award-winning YA author CJ Flood (Infinite Sky) among others. The second and third books in the series have just been contracted for publication from spring/fall 2020.

 

“As satisfying as it is suspenseful…rich with raw emotion.”
—Foreword Reviews

“A swashbuckling, romantic adventure story about time travel and a love that spans four centuries, Emmie and the Tudor King is an absolute pleasure.”
—C.J. Flood, award-winning author of Infinite Sky and Nightwanderers

One moment, Emmie is writing her high school history paper; the next, she's sitting with a gorgeous 16th century king who vacillates from kissing her to ordering her execution.

Able to travel back to her own time, but intensely drawn to King Nick and the mysterious death of his sister, Emmie finds herself solving the murder of a young princess and unraveling court secrets while trying to keep her head on her shoulders, literally.

With everything to lose, Emmie must face her biggest battle of all: How to cheat the path of history and keep her irresistible king, or lose him--and her heart--forever.


Acclaim for Emmie and the Tudor King:

"A tale of two teens torn between desire and duty, Murray’s novel is rich with raw emotion and timeless ideals of sacrifice and loyalty... From prison beds to palace ballrooms, Emmie and the Tudor King is an inspiring young adult romance. More than just another tearjerker, it is a tale of hardship, second chances, and the power to change."

—Foreword Reviews

"A swashbuckling, romantic adventure story about time travel and a love that spans four centuries, Emmie and the Tudor King is an absolute pleasure."
—C.J. Flood, award-winning author of Infinite Sky and Nightwanderers

“Fast-paced time travel romp through Tudor England…Murray does a good job showing readers the conditions in the infamous Tower of London, the clothing, the courtly intrigues, a jousting match, and even an execution for treason...Fans of Doctor Who and 16th century England are sure to enjoy this story.”

—YA Books Central

"This was such a fun book. Emmie and Nick were adorable together, obviously, but it was the plot itself that really shined. There was a bit of Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court mixed with swoony romance and it was a delight to read. I was kept guessing and just couldn't put it down. I adored the way Emmie's life in the past paralleled her modern life and the way she forged relationships, and it was all really well done. I'm so happy I got to read it.”

—Felicia Grossman, author of Appetites & Vices and Dalliances & Devotion
