About the Author
Denise Domning was ten before she realized the cosmos had played a terrible trick on her-she was living in the wrong century! Now, writing has become her time machine and words recreate the vitality of an era where she feels at home. And she does it while still enjoying the benefits of indoor plumbing!

I love reading Kathleen Woodiwiss (Flame and the Flower - Wolf and the Dove, etc) and have just finished reading Kathryn Le Veque (The Wolfe) and both writers had me engrossed from the first page, but I'm afraid Denise Domning is not in the same class as these wonderful authors.
I found the main character of Rowena to be a bit of a control freak who liked to put the servants in their place. She also had such a miserable, prickly nature that if I'd been Rannulf I would have given up on her as a suitable mate because she was such hard work for little reward.
Rannulf also stuck me as a bit dim-witted. Everyone was telling him his sis-in-law was a bitch and Rowena told him that she'd swindled him out of money, yet he still went about with his head up his backside believing the bitch innocent and without blemish which later on caused everyone all sorts of problems, ( anyone with a half a brain would have seen this occurance)....stupid man???
Mind you, now I think about it...Rowena and Ranulf are a perfect match....I found Rowena, tetchy, domineering, and controlling, whilst Rannulf was stupid, easily manipulated, and a bore!
I struggled to read this book to the end and was sorry I persevered!
The ending was disappointing and depressing!

You fall in love with the characters and therefore it is so hard to put the book down. It makes you smile, laugh, sometimes sad so have tissues to hand. Can't wait to read book 2.Published 10 months ago by JLSY
I really enjoyed this. It's got an interesting setting, is well written, and has a gripping plot, without being particularly full of action or mystery. Just an enjoyable read.Published 10 months ago by Millpede
This book is worth re-reading, I’ve done so several times. The historical context feels right and the characters are engaging and believable. Read morePublished 10 months ago by RF
I liked all the period details, the clothes, the people, the food, the manners. The story went on a bit too long. I would have preferred a crisper ending but all in all very good.Published 12 months ago by Pam
