My rating: 3 of 5 stars
You know…..this book surprised me. There was more of a story here than I expected. The problem for me started and ended with “An erotic novel” because it wasn’t. I didn’t find anything in this book erotic. I was far more fascinated with the political machinations, the threeway friendship between Robin, Marian and Will and the romance between Alys and Will. I think it was SUPPOSED to be erotic, but if that’s what you were looking for…..well, maybe other people got that out of this book. I did not. So, in that sense, I found it disappointing.
And, while the historical fiction part of this book was good, there are many, MANY that are better. I just think it missed the mark here. Don’t know if that is typical because this is the first book I’ve read by Gale. Not sure I’ll try another one.
