Had to give this one a "meh." It was a pretty good read, but there were lots of logic issues, mostly having to do with the hero's contrived excuses to keep himself apart from the wife the king made him marry.

Islaen is a tiny thing with the figure of a little boy, or at least that's what everybody thinks, but she's hiding something. Simon's first wife died horribly in childbirth so he reckons (apparently) that his seed is just too potent for mere mortal females, and especially for his tiny wife, who he cares more for than he would like. He doesn't want to engage her emotionally and refuses to bed her unless she agrees to take steps to prevent pregnancy. As I say, his excuses for holding her at arm's length wear thin, and I was pleased when one of his friends pointed out that he was a coward.

But there's lots of danger from various sources to spice things up, which keeps the story from being too focused on the complications of the relationship.

If you're a Howell fan you'll have to read this, but she's written better.
