However once she finally succumbs to him and they start feeling like a pair of lovers, the story then abruptly shifts to palace intrigue with a attempt on King Charles' life. Interestingly this seem to consume most of the rest of the book and their love is moved to the side, they get together for a fierce quick 2 page passion every chapter but the rest of the book is about the intrigue. There are lots of twists and turns and it has a great ending! One which you could probably see coming but nevertheless had me grinning like an idiot.
So all in all its a fun book with a strong historical focus without pages and pages of drippy syrupy google-eyed lovers, but I think it could have used more love and romance and I think a chance was missed to do more of the differences between now and then, for example having her be more agressive in bed than was the norm back then or open mouth kissing or whatever would fit with the story.
I enjoyed it and I'm glad I read it.
