A historical romance that I really wanted to like, about Mary, the younger sister of Henry VIII and her relationship with Henry VIII's best friend, Charles Brandon. Unfortunately, I found the plot to be too over the top and downright silly in parts, and worst of all, mostly masquerading as smut in fancy dress. Needless to say, I didn't like it at all. Your experience may vary.

Misfit I've read three of hers with mixed results. I'm done.

Rebecca Huston I just can't bear to wade through any more of her books, it's just too painful.

Misfit That last one on Kitty Howard was more than enough for me to last a life time :-/

Rebecca Huston for me, it's the silly factor that gets to me -- is it just me or does it seem that a lot of HF is turning into sleazy porn?
