Apparently I read this book during the outage and forgot to post any updates about it. That should tell you how memorable it was. The blurb promises a reader a fast paced romp through Tudor England full of intrigue and conspiracy. Both of those things were true. However, at some point the author ...

The reviews for this book are divided between 5 stars and 1 star, and so is my opinion. I don’t think it’s a bad novel, but it’s not outstanding either. The story is a historical romantic adventure in the court of young Henry VIII, and the setting alone provides conflict aplenty. It seems that every...

This was....nice. More romance than I expected. Much more. But that was not a bad thing since I like romance in my books.The history felt wallpapery and yet not. If that makes sense. Susanna, John Parker and a lot of the secondary characters were actual historical figures and the events surroun...

I received this wonderful book for review. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Michelle Diener! :DMy love for historical novels has been reawakened for sure now! I love anything hystorical, from ancient Egypt to 19th century London. Well, this book was about the time of Henry VIII in 1525. I've always ...

When I read historical romance it tends to be twentieth century or regency...what have I been missing!In A Treacherous Court is as vivid and enthralling as the wonderful fantasies of Patricia Wrede and Patricia Briggs. The characters are likeable yet complicated, the conflict, even more complicated!...

My thoughts:It is always interesting to read about real people in history that are relatively unknown. Susanna and John did live and meet. But all the intrigues made up around this story are the works of imagination, perhaps and who knows.This book is a nice mix of romance and intrigue. Susanna is s...
