back cover - Rosamund Bolton is determined to live her own life. She has claimed her inheritance, rejected her latest suitor--and decided to travel to the court of her dear friend Queen Margaret of Scotland. It is against this lavish and unpredictable backdrop that she will meet the man who will forever change her destiny. Patrick Leslie, the first Earl of Glenkirk, has a tragic past, but he brings to Rosamund a passion that few will ever know. And as war looms once more between England and Scotland, and Henry VIII seeks to make himself the most powerful monarch in all of Europe, Patrick and Rosamond will undertake a dangerous mission on behalf of King James IV--one that will test the very limits of their loyalty and the depths of their love.

Small (Rosamund) resumes the 16th-century tale of Rosamund Bolton, an orphaned English beauty who's been "a wife one way or another since... three years of age," and who now, at 22, wants to live on her own terms. Widowed thrice and the mother of three daughters, Rosamund flees her home, Friarsgate, to escape a marriage proposal and to visit her dear friend Meg, Queen of Scotland.

At court, she meets Patrick Leslie, earl of Glenkirk; sparks fly immediately, though he's twice her age. When King James sends Patrick to the Italian city of San Lorenzo to speak with England's allies in an attempt to prevent a Scottish-English war, Rosamund accompanies him. There the two bathe in the sunshine, make love during the siestas and get to know the diplomats. Upon their return to Friarsgate, Rosamund realizes that she wants to be more than Patrick's mistress. But as war breaks out between England and Scotland, Rosamund finds herself fighting for her family, her land and her life.

Full of historical detail, political intrigue and lots of steamy, enthusiastic sex, the second Rosamund saga should please Small's many fans.

Enjoy these historical settings so much. This is a facinating timeframe too. Her women characters are usually strong and smart too which I enjoy as well.

When King James sends Patrick to the Italian city of San Lorenzo to speak with England's allies in an attempt to prevent a Scottish-English war, Rosamund accompanies him. There the two bathe in the sunshine, make love during the siestas and get to know the diplomats-although little can be done to sway them from their alliance with England. Upon their return to Friarsgate, Rosamund realizes that she wants to be more than Patrick's mistress. He reminds her that they should be grateful for what they have, and while she agrees, "beneath her acquiescence anger was beginning to burn. She loved this man, and she always would. She didn't want to be separate from him. Ever." Before Patrick returns to Glenkirk, the two make plans to meet and marry in six months. But as war breaks out between England and Scotland, Rosamund's plans are put on hold as she finds herself fighting for her family, her land and her life. Full of historical detail, political intrigue and lots of steamy, enthusiastic sex, the second Rosamund saga should please Small's many fans.

Excellent Read

I liked the first one, Rosamond, but I didn't like this one so much. That first bed-hop with the older man was over-done and forced. Then when she slapped her servant girl I quit reading. It did not seem at all like the same decent, noble person from the first book and I wasn't interested in investing the time to read about this shallow character.

This book tells a very good story. I had a hard time putting the book down. It moves right along and you can't wait to find out what happens next. It takes place in 1511 in Scotland/England border area. The history is well done and tells a lot of how the people lived. I enjoyed the relationships in the book and how that played out. (no I won't tell you what happened.... you have to read it!)The story is exciting as the time it was lived was exciting. Rosamund lives on the edge and takes chances. She is a powerful woman that knows how to run a large estate, dealing with very tough men and loves with a passion.
