~ My Review ~
Wow I was not expecting this book to play out the way it did. In fact I am still thinking about it because it was so intriguing and suspenseful. I read this in one sitting for that very reason.
The author does an outstanding job by interweaving a historical story with a fantasy type feeling. I was thoroughly engrossed in the relationships between Marie, the new Queen and her distant husband Warrick, the King, as well as the Queen and her Jester.
Marie’s frustration with Warrick is understandable and sometimes I wanted to shake some sense into his head where is comes to women. As far as the Jester goes I couldn’t quite put my finger on it but he bothered me because he was so perfect. The development of the two men’s character as polar opposites continued to pull you into the love till the very surprising conclusion.
I recommend this to romance readers and readers wanting something out of the ordinary read.
