'A great summer read' Woman's Way
Glamour, infidelity, murder . . .

But now, with his business in the spotlight and his love life under scrutiny, Harry's perfect world has the potential to come crashing to the ground.
From eighties young gun to noughties billionaire, there's a reason why Harry's many wives have found him impossible to resist. But behind the money, sex and glamour lies a truer tale of infidelity, conspiracy and murder . . .
Loosely based on the trials and tribulations of the most infamous historical playboy of them all, Henry VIII, this tale of glamour and serial monogamy will leave you wickedly entertained.

Wife After Wife is a wickedly fun story torn from the pages of history, and reset in the glittering world of twenty-first century celebrity. It's a tale fit for a king -- in this case, one Henry Rose, modern media mogul, and the women who fill his life. It is an epic saga, with everything from budding romance to bitter betrayal, and corporate intrigue to crushing heartbreak. With engaging characters you can't help rooting for, Hayfield's novel is a must-read for fans of both historical and contemporary fiction -- kc dyer, author of Finding Fraser
