1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish this book, 26 Sept. 2008
This review is from: The Exiled (Paperback)
I agree with the review by "Girl called G." The heroine, Lady Anne de Bohun, has it all: youth, beauty, and is even psychic! Every man who meets her falls in love with her, including King Edward IV, with whom she has an illegitimate son. Their wives are all jealous of her. All her servants are completely devoted to her because she is so sensitive and compassionate. She has exquisite taste in decor and fashion. So perfect in fact, that after the first few pages I was heartily sick of her.

I hadn't read the first book in the series, and this is the second. We find Anne living in Brugge with her baby son, where she decides to become a merchant trader. The guild of English traders do not allow her to join, as it is not their policy to allow women into the guild. But, as she is so beguiling and pretty, she charms the Duke into allowing her to join anyways. Because she is so much more clever than the other merchants (who have twice her age and trading experience), she becomes very successful and of course this means she makes some deadly enemies. When the love of her life, King Edward, pays a visit to Brugge, he sees her waving at his procession of barges, and so he arranges her kidnapping. He learns he has a son, and also learns that Anne has many enemies from whom she needs protecting. It's about here where I gave up. I had absolutely no desire to learn anything more about these one-dimensional characters. I was hoping she'd be killed off by one of the merchant traders, but no such luck, she's back in a third book. Romantic drivel.
