  • Beatrice Small is amazing, I cannot describe her in any words, she is beyond anything in this world. Her words are magic & I adore all of her books, the tales of kings & queens of yore. You feel like your there, in the presence of the exalted highnesses of long ago. You feel for the heroine's and their male counterparts. I love her !!!!


  • I always enjoy Bertrice Small's books and own quite a few of them. The book I read before this onet by Bertrice Small.was very emotional and a strong book.So this was perfect for me to read right now. I loved Rosamund and I've read Until You, but I had not found Phillippa until now. Wonderful, light, enjoyable.


  • Really good story and I enjoyed it alot. In the beginning I was sick of Philippa's whining about court. She was so spoiled! But I enjoyed the story line alot. Can't wait to read the last book now.


  • I used to read Bertrice Small when I was young and consider her and Kathleen Woodiwiss's books guilty pleasures. I picked this up for a light read and was amazed and appalled at how rote the writing had become. It got better but the beginning of the book is VERY BADLY edited as you have a lot of repetition. Ie Character 1: We can't go to the store, it's raining. Then in the next paragraph, Character 1 or Character 2, says: "It's too wet to go to the store, it's raining" with no reference to that [...]


  • Yes, I enjoy historical fiction but I didn't really intend to read this since I detected the not so far off moans of a real bodice ripper. It was my period, though, the good old Tudors, the Field of Cloth of Gold, and Katherine's apparent barrenness so I read it.I liked the detail, although did we have to hear about each meal? There was certainly a lot of ham being consumed and not nearly as much beef as I would have imagined. Describing the clothes was probably a good idea since it made us able [...]


  • The story of the daughter of one of her most beloved characters.The eldest child of Rosamund Bolton and heiress to the Friarsgate manor, Philippa Meredith is devastated when she discovers that the man she sought to marry has rebuffed her. But it is this sudden change of fortune that sweeps the spirited beauty back to her place in the court of Queen Katherine of Aragon-and into the arms of Crispin St. Clair, the Earl of Witton. But when Philippa stumbles onto a plot to assassinate King Henry VIII [...]


  • Tried this book because I loved the author's Border Lord Series.I couldn't finish the book; it was whiny, annoying, and soooo slow. BUT I don't think it had to do with the author; unlike the Border Lord Series which was set in Scotland with little references to England, this book is set in England.So my conclusion is that England based romance novels just aren't as fiery in comparison to the Scotland based ones.


  • Yes, Beatrice Small is predictable, but she does a great job with British and French history without boring me. The characters are likeable, and in traditional Beatrice Small style, she has enough romance for the "light read."


  • I can't really said I read this because I quit half way through. The main character was a spoiled brat with no redeeming qualities to me. I tried to keep reading but I found myself wondering why I was wasting my time.
