The King's Concubine: A Novel of Alice Perrers (2012)
3.87 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: IT SHOULD'VE BEEN MORE FUN THAN IT WAS! I DON'T UNDERSTAND! Loved the characterisation of Alice and enjoyed the story enough that I did read up on the history afterward, so it obviously done quite a bit right, but I can't put my finger on what was missing here for me. Could've be...
The Forbidden Queen (2013)
3.73 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: The fictional story of Katherine de Valois, a princess of France, her short-lived marriage to Henry V and her enduring love for Owen Tudor, a steward in her household. Although little is known of her historically, she was the mother of Henry VI, the hapless king defeated by the Y...
Queen Defiant: A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine (2011)
3.82 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: OMG LOVED this book! Eleanor of Aquitaine is my hero and I love how strong, outspoken, and witty she was in here. OhmyGod her wit! She is hilarious in this book- I love the part where she's all like "I've-made-a-list" and Louis doesn't have a clue how to deal with her. And then h...
Virgin Widow: England's Forgotten Queen (2010)
3.8 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This is a historical romance. The first half of the book was pretty good, as it develops the main characters, Anne's family, the background of the Wars of the Roses. The rest was not as interesting. I felt it was overly dramatic, really drawn out. On one hand Anne has grown up in...
Devil's Consort (2011)
3.81 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This is the first book I have read by this author. Her style is easy to read and what I would call light in spite of being historical fiction. Unfortunately I found the story dull, overly long and I wonder how historically accurate it is. The central character is forced to marry ...
The Virgin Widow (2010)
3.8 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Probably really a 3 1/2 star book. It was nice to get the story of Anne Neville, not a character who is normally featured in history since she was not a king or queen for a long period of time. I liked the continuation of the story from childhood to adulthood and how the love s...
The Uncrowned Queen (2012)

review 1: I read The King's Concubine before I read this short story. I have read quite a lot about Edward and Phillipa, but never from Phillipa's point of view. This was indeed a short story, but it was very dynamic. You could feel the loyalty, love and hope that Edward and Phillipa felt ...
