The Last Heiress by Bertrice Small

Elizabeth Meredith is the last heiress of the Frairsgate estate. she is happy being the mistress of the estate until her mother tells her she must go to court to find love and a partner to help her with the family seat. Elizabeth is deadset against going to court and refuses to believe that she will be happy at court. Elizabeth meets the King's Mistress Anne Boleyn and becomes one of her greatest friends against her sister Philippa's wishes.Elizabeth soon grows bored of court life and asked to go home. She then meets Baen Macoll who believes himself to be unworthy of Elizabeth 's love because he was born on the wrong side of the blanket.
Can Elizabeth change his mind and help him see that together they can be happy.

My Thoughts:
My only complaint with this book was that there was not as many scenes with Anne as I would have liked.I would have like to have seen Elizabeth visit her friend while she was in the Tower rather than have a character tell Elizabeth what happen to Anne.Instead of Anne being portrayed as the strong Queen she was she was some what wimpy in this book I couldn't believe I was reading about the same legendary woman. Otherwise it was a nice conclusion to the series.
