Really enjoyed Suzanne Robinson's second book of The Queen's Spies Quartet, Lady Defiant . She featured: {1} an intelligent, gorgeous, hunky, alpha hero, whose tortured soul convinced him he was to remain alone forever after. {2} A very strong-willed, determined, intelligent, 'will not be denied' heroine, who struggled with her own lack of self-worth. {3}...more

I feel kind of unfair giving this a low rating as it is well written and clearly well-researched. But since the purpose of this account is for me to keep track of what I've read and what I do and don't like, I have to say, I couldn't really get into it. The dialog was in 16th century-speak, and there was way too much of the suspense/intrigue/history subplot for my taste. I wanted to like it because it appeared to have a heroine that is not conventionally attractive, and while she does overhear t...more

I admit I was curious to know what happened to Blade after reading the first book. I enjoyed this installment and loved the intrigue and plot machinations. I also liked the hare and the hound chase between Blade and Oriel. Hmmm...the question is: who is the hound and who is the hare? :D
