This review is from: Rivals in the Tudor Court (Tudor Court 2) (Paperback)
I should have realised the level that this book is pitched at when I saw on the back it states perfect for fans of The Tudors (television series).
Basically this book is a medieval soap opera and not a very well written one at that. There are some glaring mistakes where twentieth century jargon is used. This jumps off the page at me and is very irritating.
It states that "This book is entirely a work of fiction. The names, characters and incidents portrayed in it are the work of the author's imagination. Any resemblance to actual persons living or dead, events or localities is entirely coincidental." Well I wish that this had been the case and then we wouldn't have to suffer her portrayal of some of the greatest historical lives.
The book goes along at a romping rate and if you are a Mills and Boon or Barbara Cartland fan then this might be for you but if you are a fan of more thoughtful historical fiction then I wouldn't advise trying this nonsense.
