This story is engaging from the very first chapter--when our hero rescues our heroine from a life on the streets. Of course, there is a strong attraction from the very beginning; however, Aiden is unhappily married and Pippa is an orphan searching for her family. As a result, he is too honorable to sleep with her and it just makes him all the more endearing.

After many political twists and turns, the truth of her heritage becomes obvious. His wife (and her vindictive father) turn out to be a much trickier dilemma to resolve. At the end, Pippa and Aiden's love must conquer many obstacles including imprisonments, a murder charge, insurrection and rebellion and a number of near-death experiences by both.

I've now read #2 and #3 in the Tudor Rose Trilogy and loved both. I'll certainly be reading the first as soon as possible--and everything else I can by this author.

Very good story; I really enjoyed this trilogy. Wonderful characters and a great plot. I loved the way this family line twists through three generations. I really liked the gypsy twist and prophesy; I liked the first story with the Russian twist; the second book was OK; but this third and final tale was the best. I liked the Irish theme and the complexity of these last characters was complex, moving, and worth the read. I couldnt put this book down.
