But then Corrie's cousin Anne takes her to an all-female bash where her interest in men is piqued after listening to an evaluation on their 'various parts' and what they do with them.

At court, Sweden's ambassador Rugar Kalisson has a 'secret' mission--he wants revenge for his father who was humiliated at Elizabeth's court years ago. This will envolve captivating the queen's pet Corrie who falls in love with him. Elizabeth is furious and wants Rugar beheaded.

Most historical romances are sober affairs, with tortured heroes, gothic settings, and haunted heroines being pursued by satanic villains. But this 1500's romance features laughter, bedplay, horseplay, and hi-jinks, with enough slapstick and teasing to lighten the darkest dungeon.

A deliciously innocent young lady in waiting, Corrie has no idea that men are different from women. But after a wickedly exciting initiation by her cousin Anne, Corrie is immediately enchanted by a handsome Swedish visitor to the English court. Rugar Kallisson has plans of his own, and seduction is merely a means to an end. But innocent Corrie responds to him with such adoring and trusting passion that before long he is fighting for right and justice and sacrificing everything just to make the innocent blonde his bride.
