are interesting in 
interesting in about a different time eriod Seeing the court during Elizabeth s reign was fun different Betina Krahn did a great job of ulling me into that world experiencing the fun and drama of court life as it could have been If you like a busy Zheng Guogu plot you might like this If you want to read about Elizabeth and her reign you wouldrobably like this too The ueen is in this book a lot and interfering in their relationshipThere s a bit of tension a few kisses a few scenes I wouldn t say it s overly steamy but its not clean Middle of the roadThing things I didn t like about this book was it felt like it was all shenanigans There was always SOMETHING going on It never seemed to be just about the two of them Someone was always being abducted or manipulated and just non stop drama I felt like the book was half about the ueen and half about their relationship The other thing that bothered me was that Rugar was #actively attempting to get with other women after he met and liked Corinna Nothing ends up happening and he was always #attempting to get with other women after he met and liked Corinna Nothing ends up happening and he was always about driving her out of his head but it still bothered me It only lasts a chapter or so but stillAnyone else try Betina Krahn I don t think I ve ever heard her talked about I would definitely try another one of her novels thoughI was able to receive an ARC copy complimentary from netgalley Opinions expressed in this review are completely my ow.
