Finally allowed myself to read this as a treat when I couldn't get through Beard.
It started very promising and I just love the hero again - not only does she have the mose likable guys, they are even (body) types I can't stand and yet it doesn't matter. I think this was written before the great Knight one though, because at the end there are just too many characters, and having to work with the real historical figures of Richard, Henry and Elizabeth is never my favourite thing. In that and ment

O carte complexa in care se pot descoperi tradari, spionaj, comploturi la nivel inalt, dar cu personaje incapatanate ce iubesc cu pasiune si indiferent de evenimentele ce apar ele raman puternice.

King's man Griffith ap Powel is entrusted with the mission of protecting Lady Marian Wenthaven and Lionel, though from what he doesn't know. It's hate at first sight (or maybe just strong dislike) for both. Griffith because he likes his women meek and mild, or so he thought. And Lady Marian because she has many secrets which would be impossible to keep with a lover. Little Lionel plays an important role for both of them though once again, Griffith doesn't know why.

This wasn’t too bad, for a historical romance. It’s set at the beginning of the reign of Henry VII, the father of the notorious Henry VIII, though none of it actually takes place at court.

The romance between Marian and Griffith could have been a little more developed — they went from lust to love very quickly — but there were things I enjoyed. The dialogue, though not completely historica ...more

A very enjoyable story, with lots of turns and bumps in the story line.

Soy una lectora que nunca había leído nada de esta autora, pero puedo decir que después de leer este libro y si tengo la ocasión de hacerme con otro libro suyo no voy a dudar ni un instante en hacerme con él. Este libro no es de los mejores, ni tampoco de los que dejan huella, pero sí que me ha gustado bastante.

As far as romance novels go, I enjoyed this one--probably because of the really lively plot that included a lot of court intrigue and battle scenes. The romance itself was meh, but it's not really my genre--your mileage may vary.
