This popped up in my Amazon recommends list and, as I am a lover of historical romance, I downloaded it straight away. I was so disappointed! On paper, it should be something that I would love and the plot sounds right up my street. Unfortunately, the execution lets it down terribly.

The first third of the book suffers from poor characterisation. I wanted to like Catherine and Andrew and Harry but I know virtually nothing about them. They aren't described at all, so I had no picture of them in m...more
I really enjoyed this book. Even tho I didn't realise its the second book in a series of three. I didn't miss anything with not reading first story which is about Catherine mother and father. Their story is explain very slowly in this book while the daughter of the Melfords Catherine meets and falls for Andrew the earl of Gifford. Really good historical and mystery with the attacks to Melford and Gifford family. Great HEA. Don't think I'll read first book as I know the story and ending from this...more
andrew n catherine shared a very dull chemistry. i felt no chemistry, no love bet these 2. the tone of the book itself was very boring. it was like a passive read. i did finish the book though n did not skip too many pages.only smthng like 10 pages i skipped. i liked nthng abt it:P
Good old sweet heroine. Recommended for light reading. For a romance novel to work, I think I would prefer more confrontation between the ex-mistress and the wife. The romance worked out a wee bit too quickly.

I liked that this book pulled in Henry vii and the kings court, the characters made you feel like you could relate to them and their friendships. Lots of mystery and excitement!

It was lighthearted. Not the normal time period I read, but made a nice change. Would be interested in reading the previous book written about the family.
alright again I read book 2 before book 1. I wish it said on books whether it was part of a series
