Eek. I really hated this book. She turned a very strong heroine into nothing at the end. I don't care that it may be historically accurate, I found it to be irritating and barely finished it. If I could have slapped our "hero" I sure would have. What a jerk! She has so much and gives it all up because she is "in love." Ick, ick, ick.

Wonderful book, a little bit slow at first, but then the story really got going and really drew me in and it was like I was transported into the time of King Henry the 8th. The physical description of the scenery and the storyline is wonderful and I loved the ending. I highly recommend this and can't wait to read other Jane Feather books!!

Typical Feather novel. Very entertaining. First class romance and rich characters. Historical background and intelligent writing about times when a king's favor could mean your life.

What else can possibly be said about Jane Feather's writing? It is simply wonderful. Feather fans won't be disappointed in this story which begins in Derbyshire, England, 1536.

Decent story. Some interesting settings used here, like Hugh's house in London. Most children in romance novels I find to be annoying, but Guinevere's two daughters were well-written and added a lot to the story.

Did Lady Guinevere become a widow four times naturally or is this intriguing woman a cold-blooded killer ?

Dear Reader,
When I first saw her, I realized that the miniature portrait I had shown to the king did not do her justice. Lady Guinevere Mallory's beauty transcended even a portrait painter's skill. It was nearly impossible to beieve that this woman, who had buried four husbands before her thirtieth birthday, could have used murder and the dark arts of witchcraft to achieve her great wealth.

I carried the king's writ to investigate Lady Guinevere's oft-repeated widowhood. Was it mere coincidence that each death had left her wealthier than the last? The fact that I believed she also held lands that rightfully belonged to my family made my investigation all the more personal and all the more thorough.

Surely, I thought, such a woman would bear some obvious mark of treachery on her countenance, in her manner. But when we met I saw only the beauty of her pale blond hair and her deep violet eyes that seemed to me to offer a glimpse into the intriguing world of her brilliant mind and spirit. I began to wonder how the gentle hands of such an elegant woman, whose cool composure belied her dubious past, could have committed cold-blooded murder.

Now as I learn more about the mysterious widow, I find myself growing more curious about the secrets of her heart - and more determined to reveal those secrets. Guinevere is the most captivating and intriguing woman I have ever met. I have but one question: Will my interest in her prove to be a fatal one?
