Old-school classic historical romance fun. Extra points for the approach to acceptable premarital sex; maybe a point subtracted for the rough-flowing plot that slings you from scene to scene.

Oh crap moment: Wait, this is a series?! Does the library have the other books?

Very much enjoyed reading. Don't really need to own this. Unlikely to read a second time.

King Henry has given Gerard of Wilmont and Ardith of Lenvil one year for her to become with child and then they could wed, otherwise the Kings ward would be his bride.
Looking forward to the rest of the books in this series after meeting the characters in this first book.
