Product Description

Product Description

On a whim, straight-laced Judith Beaufort goes out for a ride and is abducted in a case of mistaken identity by a band of thespians headed by the rogue Charles Lambert. This small incident will have consequences far beyond Judith’s imagining, as she is quickly drawn into dangerous political intrigue and an unexpected relationship with the charming and disreputable Charles.

Original copyright 1990, Warner Books

2.0 out of 5 stars Struggling to get through it! 26 Jan 2012
By Emma
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read and enjoyed other books by this Author, "Simon's Lady" and "Suspicious Hearts", and since this ebook was relatively inexpensive, I decided to give it a go despite some negative reviews.

However, I have found it extremely difficult to get through the book, and considering I am a very fast reader and not partiularly fussy when it comes to books, that is quite a damning statement. The story is long-winded, farcical and extremely difficult to believe in places. I am also not overly fond of the heroine, who seems inconsistent in her actions.

I am determined to finish the book, just to see how it ends, but can't recommend it. If you have nothing else to read, time on your hands, and the book is basically free, then you could give it a go. But if things are otherwise then I advise you to better spend your time reading or doing something else!

4.0 out of 5 stars Renaissance romantic mystery for the cultured mind 9 Aug 2011
By Ilinca - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
A pert young lady with a mind of her own. A mischievous man with undisclosed interests and a whimsical nature. And a backdrop of Renaissance England theatricality, intrigue and charms.
This is romance & mystery for those with an eye for detail, from the wonderful comedy of the encounters (how do you adjust to the unpredictable within such a well-regulated society?) to the carefully plotted mystery side (just why exactly are so many people looking for a certain painting?) and the inevitable romantic entanglement of the two independent characters (how do you manage your independence while falling in love?).
It's also romance & mystery for those with an interest in art, history and art history. You won't notice it, but by the end you'll have learned quite a bit about the theater, politics and painting of that era.
I read it in three days - it's easy, since everything clicks together and falls into place just so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Hilarious. 8 Dec 2011

A couple of times I had to put the book down because I was laughing. There are some funny scenes. I love stories set in England, and I didn't notice any problems with the names, like some other reviewer mentioned. Maybe they were fixed?
4.0 out of 5 stars Julie Andresen has written another fun book 16 Feb 2014
By Germaine - Published on

Judith is kidnapped by mistake, when the bumbling kidnappers realize this is the wrong person, they don't know what to do with her. The kidnappers are a group of actors who are very likeable. Lambert is an art dealer who bought a picture at an art auction, he won the bid, but when he went to get the picture. the auctioneer sold it to another person for a better price. It is a very involved story which is about this specific painting. The actors are fun characters, if just a little odd. It is a great story with great characters. Julie Andresen writes very good books, with enjoyable stories. If you find her books, they are always a very good read. I highly recommend this book.

Judith, niece of Lord Somerset, is responsible, dutiful, and obedient. While on a ride to Monmouth to hand deliver a wedding invitation Judith is abducted in a case of mistaken identity. This adventure sets Judith on a path rife with peril, pleasure, and intrigue. Is she up to the challenges before her?

Charles Lambert was exiled from England fifteen years ago. He's led an adventurous life and only returned to his homeland to retrieve a painting, Judith by Artemisia Gentileschi. Lambert was entranced and has chased Rosamunda, the thief across the continent. Do his men bring him Rosamunda? No, his men bring him Judith, niece of the man responsible for his exile.

AND HEAVEN TOO scored for me on every point. I was ignorant of the painting Charles wanted so badly so I googled it. What a fascinating back story. There were many others of the subject done by various artists but I'm in total agreement with Charles, Artemisia Gentileschi's is compelling. The reign of Charles I isn't one I'm overly familiar with usually reading about earlier of later periods. Very perilous times indeed, feuding religious factions, civil strife, and a king who refuses to face reality or listen to reason. Charles and Judith's adventure is near the end of what would, in hindsight, be remembered as "a golden age" compared to the civil wars that followed it. Always happy to learn something I didn't know. Score.

The theatrical troupe Charles enlists to assist in his capture of Rosamunda consists of some wonderfully drawn characters. The playwright, Harry Webster, is a hoot. I laughed practically every time he appeared. All the characters are beautifully conceived and portrayed. Score for excellent characterization.

Mystery and political intrigue surround the Judith painting. The quest for the painting and what it means to different parties is our window to the politics of the time. The danger to Charles and Judith is very real and adds a nice edge and urgency. Score.

Charles has a rival in George Beecham, Judith's betrothed. George is fair to Charles' dark, dandy to manly, bland to witty, and boy to man. Charles' past interactions with Judith's family also play a hand in events. So there isn't a clear path to Judith. Score.

Levity. I enjoy dark reads, always have and while I adore my tortured, scarred, and flawed heroes and heroines with all their angst and moodiness frequent breaks are a necessity so it doesn't rub off. There were times AND HEAVEN TOO was borderline farcical. There's a chase scene involving Charles, Judith, the thespians, an Italian, and his henchmen that, despite the very real menace to which Charles can attest, reminded me of Peter Sellers' Pink Panther. Hilarious and score.

A hero and heroine who sparkle, lighting up every page they're on. Charles and Judith are attracted to each others mental acuity rather than physical appearance. On first sight she thinks he looks unkempt and rough while his first impression of her is a drowned rat. They both clean up nice but by that time they've clicked mentally. Their verbal foreplay crackles and their mental sparring is delightful. Charles is well aware that real seduction begins with the mind. His reference to "mental virginity" is apropos and brilliant. Big time score.

I had such a large time reading AND HEAVEN TOO. Just the palate cleanser I needed after all the heavier much darker reading I've done lately.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why won't they learn about titles? 29 Sep 2011
By Seasonal Deluge - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As far and plot, dialogue and characters go, this book is good.

I enjoyed The Temporary Bride more, but what started out as a vague disquiet in that, turned into a full blown disappointment here: the author's understanding of the aristocracy is certainly sub-par.

I wish the author has researched the proper use of titles. I cant forgive such a great oversight.
1. The heroine's uncle is:
"Henry Herbert, Lord Somerset, the fifth Earl of Worcester." In the book is referred to as Somerset, and also Lord Henry.
No! No! No!

If he is the Earl of Worcester, he should be Lord Worcester. What is this title of "Lord Somerset"? He should always just be Worcester.

2. Sir George Beecham's mother is most often called Lady Margaret. Now I can tell myself that maybe she's Lady Margaret because her own father may have been a high ranking nobleman.
But then:
- she is also called Lady Beecham. Decide.
She would only be Lady Margaret if her own father was a duke, marquis or earl. If not, she's Lady Beecham. And if she's Lady M, let her remain so throughout. One didn't vacillate between first and last names with titles.
- Lord Somerset, the Earl of Worcester's own daughter is Miss Caroline.
I repeat. WHAT? No! She ought to have been Lady Caroline.

There's also a rather inappropriate scene where two gentlemen end up alone with our heroine, in her personal chambers, but that actually could have happened, so I didn't bother getting mad about it.

I just don't understand why the author didn't do a little bit of research before she picked the titles. I couldn't bring myself to forgive her.
