2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By FAMOUS NAME VINE VOICE on 12 May 2009
Format: Paperback
'Rogues & Players' is the first volume of what is two parts of a saga. Written by Pauline Bentley (aka Kate Tremain) it follows the fortunes of 'Gabriellen', a woman living in Elizabethan times whose life becomes embroiled with, as the title suggests 'rogues and players' and in particular, three very different, but important men.

I don't usually read books this long (600 pages) and the print is quite small, and so there is a great deal of reading, but the story keeps you interested enough to want to go on, and the characters thoroughly believable and many that are very likeable.

The story follows the life of Gabriellen Angel, who, after living for years with her aunt and uncle, catches up with her father who is the leader in a band of 'players' who are travelling the country. Gabriellen inadvertently becomes a playwright - partly due to her father's failing sight who is writing the plays initially, but she gets herself in deep water - both with the troupe and Queen Elizabeth I as she goes against all Elizabethan propriety.

This is an interesting read and historically accurate with all kinds of events that will keep you 'hooked' until the very end. Not overly sentimental with some unpredictability not usually found in this type of novel.

The saga is continued with the second volume entitled: 'Fallen Angels' which though I own, having just finished reading the first volume have not yet read, but will definitely look forward to doing so.

Really interesting read - I love Kate Tremayne's books, but I do wish ebooks could be proof-read more thoroughly. I hate being so deeply engrossed in the story and coming across a word which is either mis-spelt or sometimes just wrong, and having to re-read a sentence to make sense of it. Unfortunately there were several of these errors in this book.
Five stars for the story, but only two for editing.

Elizabethan romantic thriller 14 Dec. 2014
By Gary Selikow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A dramatic historical romance set in Elizabethan times revolving around the theater and the London underworld
Gabriellen Angel is the daughter of Esmond Angel, a popular English playwright who directs Lord Barpham's group of traveling players.
she is brought up by her aunt and uncle
Beguiled and wood by the dashing casanova and privateer Jack Stoneham. when her aunt and uncle die of the plague her life is saved by the Welsh horsebreeder and agent for the Queen, Mark Rowan

When Jack refuses to marry her she joins her fathers troupe showing her talent for the theatre. to save her father from depth she marries the psychopathic and cruel Edmond Prew, and enters a nightmarish world of abuse and contact with the London underworld
Much drama and high adventure will unfold before the culmination of this historical thriller which encompasses events such as the defeat of the Spanish Armada and the Essex rebellion
Quite a good, read, I feared it would be a harlequin romance but later found it had more substance and while it entails a lot of reading is worth the time and effort
