Elizabeth Moss has created a book that had me rooting for two people who were emotionally scarred by love, and a background world that came off as very authentic. This book also has such hot love scenes. Make sure to be prepared!
First, when the hero of this story, Lord Wolf, was young he fell in love with a woman and asked her to marry him; however, before they could marry he was sent off to battle someone by his king. While Wolf was gone, his fiancée absconded with another man. He then had a dark view towards love. Eloise, the heroine of this story, was also burned by love when she fell in love with a courtier at court who did not want to marry her but to only have an affair with her.
Next, the background world of this story is set in and around the court of King Henry the Eight of England and one of his queens, Anne Boleyn, in the early 1500s. If you don’t know your British history, Henry killed Anne by chopping her head off when she was suspected of having affairs behind his back when he was away from her. During his entire reign, Henry was so paranoid that the people around him in court were plotting to overthrow him for someone else so he would have spies in his courts watching everyone. Elizabeth Moss pulled me right into this stressful and tense time period in history while I was reading this book by describing authentic clothing, customs, and other items from that period.
Last, the sexual scenes in the book are very hot and use graphic words to describe male and female genitals. Lord Wolf is also very commanding in telling Eloise what to do to him and what he will do to her.
Can Eloise go through with an arranged marriage her father has planned for her to a man she met a week-ago?
Hilary Mantel meets Sylvia Day: the first installment in a deliciously erotic trilogy, set against the sumptuous backdrop of the scandal-ridden Tudor Court.
