Although I did not like Sir Richard in book 1, overall, I enjoyed this story. I will probably read book 3 for Reformation next year.

Recommended to L. by: It was a freebie. Who says no to a freebie?
I found myself growing to hate just about everyone in this book and I saw no reason to continue the torture.

Widow and single mother Elissa Longbourne is forced by King Charles II to marry playwright Sir Richard Blythe.

That's all I got out of the story. I don't want any more. Go away, Book. Just go away.
