Review
  • Twice married before she was 13, Rosamund Bolton, mistress of Friarsgate Manor, vows that the next time she weds she will have a say in the matter. Upon the death of her second husband, she becomes a ward of King Henry VII. She is escorted to court by Sir Owein Meredith, who soon escorts her back home, having become her third husband. Even though the king has arranged the match, it meets with Rosamund’s approval, but after several years of wedded bliss and three daughters, a tragic accident takes Owein from her. Called back to court, Rosamund must serve the new queen, Katherine of Aragon, while trying to fend off the amorous advances of Katherine’s second husband, lusty King Henry VIII. New York Times best-selling author Small’s latest sexy historical has all the ingredients her fans love: a young, courageous heroine who finds romance in the arms of several men, a colorfully detailed historical setting, and sexy love scenes that leave nothing to the reader’s imagination. Small isn’t for everyone, but the first in her new Friarsgate Inheritance series is an excellent example of a sensual historical romance. (See the Read-alikes column, opposite page, for more “hot” historicals.) -- John Charles (BookList, 10-01-2002, p306)
  • Rendezvous Review: Rosamund Bolton married twice at an early age and she's still a virgin. Her uncle who happens to also be her guardian wants to keep control of her inheritance. He bargains for another marriage but his plans go astray. Although Rosamund knows how to run her own estate as the king's ward, it's only a matter of time before she's forced to wed once again. At court Rosamund learns to adjust. She'll comply with the King's wishes but she plans to choose her husband this time around. Having made her choice, a strange twist of fate leaves Rosamund once again without a husband and back in the king's court where secrets, betrayal, lies, and hard decisions await her. The emotional and physical journeys she travels lead her to yet another path in her life. Unbeknownest to Rosamund, there is one who vows to have her for himself against all odds. Danger mounts, passions flare, and truths are uncovered in this provocative historical. The heroine who is just a pawn in the hands of ambitious men breathes life into this powerful tale with its historical characters and simmering sexual tension. I eagerly look forward to the next installment of this continuing saga. Reviewed August 2002 by Wilhelmenia Kendall
