it was amazing

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 unable to eat properly because her teeth are all gone -- but no one dares to deal with the problem. Val solves it with gentleness and understanding, and it's a real window into royal history. She's not exactly strong-willed, but she's a survivor and she knows how to adapt to every new circumstance. I liked her and wanted her to be happy.

A great book for those who love harem romance and Tudor history.

“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.”
