Kind of poignant retelling of English medieval history with two very funny characters. There's a mystery of star crossed lovers in the past,very blunt religious restrictions and a down right evil antagonist. Very likeable characters.

This is my first Lynsay Sands novel and it will not be my last.Always is a novel tat has it all: Humor, romance and Mystery.The parts of the story with Aric and Rosamude's wedding night as well asAric trying to teach his wife to enjoy the " Matial Bed" are priceless.The real humor however, is when Rosamude dressed Aric's horse up in his clothes by the fire in the Keep to help the animal get over a cold. I laughed s hard people on the bus were looking at me.Although these two people did not start out loving each other the relationship and the love was so much fun to read. Learning about themselves and learning to trust easc other was wonderful.The novel also contained a little myster, Who killed Rosamude's mother and why issomeone trying to kill her is a question that takes center stage is the later part of this book.

It was so hard for me to rate this book. The humor was awesome. I laughed out loud in so many places. The plot was the same as all Sand's historic novels so I have to dock points for that. And I didn't care for the two main characters and the rehashing of what the Church deemed to be proper marital bed etiquette was frustrating. Once was enough but Sands kept going back to it. I loved all the side characters though. So in the end I thought right in the middle with three stars was the best I can do. Read it for the funny scenes and dialogue. Other than that there will be no surprises down to the murder attempts: they really are all the same in her books in this genre.

Good, brainless read.

I really enjoyed this book. The parts where the nuns tried to explain the marriage bed and the resulting wedding night with the bride's father (the King) outside the door was hilarious. I would recommend this book to anyone.
