Based on the ridiculous cover (and the title?), I thought this would be more romance than history. The truth is that the book didn't seem to make up its mind. I love a good novel with court intrigue, but there either wasn't enough to carry the book, or it was so bogged down in mind-numbing passages of history and descriptions of clothing that I might have suffered a blackout while reading parts of it for all that I remember.

Without a good intrigue, it was up the hero and heroine to move the plot
This story follows one Heloise Ballaster, a silver haired young woman with a touch of precognition. She gets forced into a marriage with the very wonderful Sir Miles Rushden, and they mutually decide to work on getting the marriage annulled so that they can go their separate ways... not to mention that Sir Miles is previously betrothed.

this was one of the worst ones i read. the plot had great potential given the time era. the main characters, however, made absolutely no sense. there was no consistency in their character, and i felt like i was reading a historical romance about two people with severe bipolar disorder. i can't believe i finished it.
DEW read and enjoyed - I was expecting so much historical information - they should teach history thru historic novels in school - I seriously don't remember alot of this stuff - really interesting and fun to read!
When I read this book it was called "the silver bride" . I really enjoyed this book. I really couldn't put this book down. A real escape from reality!
historical romance...a little too detailed (slow) in parts and quite amusing and racy in others.
