Can I just mention what a pain in the derriere trade size paperbacks are? The rest of the series cradles nicely in the hand, but this one demands a two-hand hold. Okay, I digress.
Bertrice Small is an excellent writer, let there be no doubt. But as a regular reader, I get real tired of the whole harem-scarem, sell 'em into slavery thing over and over again. And, oh, believe me, this is another one of THOSE novels. Now I like the character of Aidan St. Michael a whole lot--she's smart, sharp, strong, and not beautiful in the conventional sense. So why put her through the time and again rigors of captive concubine? Skye O' Malley is character enough for five women, and she'd already been through that funhouse. Was it necessary for Aidan to repeat history?
Well, yes, I suppose it was, otherwise the series would be lacking a keystone. But the book began with such promise of something different--Aidan, orphaned and in the care of Queen Elizabeth, a "country mouse" with the huzpah to suggest herself as the perfect bride for "The Handsomest Man At Court", Conn O' Malley. The intrigue between the Spanish representatives and Aidan's unscrupulous distant relatives to get the O'Malley family discredited, beginning with implicating Conn in a plot to kill the queen--this is good stuff. But then Small had to fall back on the old harem trick and that suspense was dispersed.Read more ›
I got a hold of this Hard-to-find book on eBay (auction) after failing to get it on amazon auction - check often at these places though, because there is always a copy up for auction, and it is definitely worth it!
I read somewhere that even though it was hard to find, it wasn't really that important a book in the series, I think that person was just trying to make everyone feel better in case they couldn't find a copy - you must try to get a copy of this book!
