Hilary Mantel meets Sylvia Day: the first installment in a deliciously erotic trilogy, set against the sumptuous backdrop of the scandal-ridden Tudor Court.
Bound to him against her will...
Lord Wolf, hardened soldier and expert lover, has come to King Henry VIII's court to claim his new bride: a girl who has intrigued him since he first saw her riding across the Yorkshire moors.
Eloise Tyrell, now lady-in-waiting to Queen Anne Boleyn, has other ideas. She has no desire to submit to a man she barely knows and who - though she is loath to admit it - frightens her not a little.
Then comes that first kiss...
It awakens in both a fierce desire that bares them to the soul. But as the court erupts into scandal around the ill-fated Queen, Eloise sees first-hand what happens when powerful men tire of their wives.
Dare she surrender her body and her heart?
I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review. I did not however read the blurb or any reviews for this book. It was not what I thought, but that does not change the review.
It sucked, but I am still giving 3 stars because of the few steamy scenes.
In the beginning the author protrays the "heroine", Eloise, as some headstrong woman. Yet through out the book, we see otherwise. A real submissive, and unsure of herself.
Lord Wolf, even when he "tried" to be nice (if you want to call it that) was a straight-out asshole. How I made it to the end of the book is beyond me, but I try to never give up.
Not impressed with this author, or this book.
