Beatrice Small is amazing, I cannot describe her in any words, she is beyond anything in this world. Her words are magic & I adore all of her books, the tales of kings & queens of yore. You feel like your there, in the presence of the exalted highnesses of long ago. You feel for the heroine's and their male counterparts. I love her !!!!
I always enjoy Bertrice Small's books and own quite a few of them. The book I read before this one...not by Bertrice Small....was very emotional and a strong book....So this was perfect for me to read right now. I loved Rosamund and I've read Until You, but I had not found Phillippa until now. Wonderful, light, enjoyable.
Really good story and I enjoyed it alot. In the beginning I was sick of Philippa's whining about court. She was so spoiled! But I enjoyed the story line alot. Can't wait to read the last book now.
Tried this book because I loved the author's Border Lord Series.
I couldn't finish the book; it was whiny, annoying, and soooo slow. BUT I don't think it had to do with the author; unlike the Border Lord Series which was set in Scotland with little references to England, this book is set in England.
So my conclusion is that England based romance novels just aren't as fiery in comparison to the Scotland based ones.

Yes, Beatrice Small is predictable, but she does a great job with British and French history without boring me. The characters are likeable, and in traditional Beatrice Small style, she has enough romance for the "light read."

I can't really said I read this because I quit half way through. The main character was a spoiled brat with no redeeming qualities to me. I tried to keep reading but I found myself wondering why I was wasting my time.

Overall plot was good, but riddled with cheap romance novel characteristics.
