I had a feeling that I wasn't going to like this book and boy was I right. It had way too many pages of boring Court intrigue (or lack of intrigue) and political shenanigans having nothing to do with Valentina. And Valentina herself was wishy-washy. I really couldn't find anything to like about her or either of her suitors. Both were overly aggressive and had no respect for a lady, not that Valenina acted like one. This book takes place in 1601 where chastity was a virtue. Granted Valenina was a ...more

Valentina is Sky O'Malley's great-niece, and like the family matriarch she has an independent spirit and a voluptuous body. She is beloved by Queen Elizabeth but goes eastward to experience all the possible forms of sexual pleasure a woman can know before finding her true love at last.

All this sounds pretty terrible, doesn't it? But Bertrice Small has a way of making Val more human and more engaging than most romance novel heroines. There's a section about the court life where Elizabeth is unab
Good enough story with the lovely & beautiful ending that we are so used to from Mrs. Small. The only thing is that Valentina could be very annoying with her stubbornness & "I-am-my-own-mistress" kind of attitude which got her into too much trouble. But I guess the fact that I feel so strong about it tells you what a great job Mrs. Small did with her character. All in all, I love her heroines and their happy endings!

Valentina is my favorite heroine in the O'Malley series and more like Skye than Skye's offspring. When Valentina goes to court to serve Elizabeth I, Bertrice Small's writing broke my heart. Mrs. Small's exceptional writing and incredible detail showed me how the lively days of courtlife in Elizabeth's youth had dramatically changed and had become a somber place as Elizabeth approached her last days. When a family secret is revealed, Valentina shows us her adventurous spirit and heads East! Her a ...more
Beatrice Small is one of my favorite authors of Romance. She knows how to tell a story to make you laugh and cry all a tthe same time. She makes you fall in love with the heroes and heroines and absolutely loath the villans. She is truely amazing and you would be entranced to read any one of her books. I know I am! I can't wait for her new ones to come out!
The adventures Valentina go on will leave you breathless.

Story of Skye's niece Valentina.
There are six books in the Skye O'Malley series; too many words, too much gratuitous unimaginative sex, too little story, getting progressively worse through the series.
Always good reads, but often quite similar to previous ones. Good to read a few then take a break for other works then come back in a few months for more.

“Did you not take the opportunity to bathe, gentlemen?" Valentina questioned them, trying to take her mind off her body, which felt unusually sensitive in this sultry climate. The silk of her gown seemed to rub against her nipples with every breath.” 1 likes
