Ivolous spending habits Solay comes to court to plea FOR FUNDS FOR HER NOW IMPOVERISHED MOTHER AND WHILE funds for her now impoverished mother and while she uses her skills in astrology and tells Richard s fortune Through one twist of fat I mainly read this because it has connection to Edward III heroines mother ALice Perrers and I knew it was big on romance side I thought it was a nice surprise because I did enjoy itBut still it was okay but couldn t see much chemistry between the characters I thought the author tried to keep them apart too hard for no apparent reason Betrothed to a man she must betrayShe is the illegitimate daughter of a dead king trying to regain a place at court He is the powerful lord determined to stop herAnd around every corner lurks treason that could threaten them bothA medieval and another new to me author I heard good things about it and decided to give it a try The author mentions how the idea for this story came from King Edward III and Alice Perrer s daughters of which little is knownJoan better known as Lady Solay comes to court in search of a position or a rich husband She is the illegitimate daughter of the last king and after he died her mother took her and her sister away from court and lost everything she possessed except the house they have been living inThere she meets Lord Lamont a man of law and close to the parliament that is trying to limit the king s power Solay attracts the attention of the king with her hobby of reading the stars and he ends up devising a marriage between her and Justin Lamont She would marry a rich man and in turn she would spy

him for the kingThere are important issues at stake in the story Whether the king s divine power should or not be above the law of men What to do when the law and our personal interests are different things Solay is wary of everyone around her she knows she is not much liked and is in secret called the harlot s daughter Although she doesn t want to spy on anyone she knows she has to follow the king s wishes in order to gain her reward and save her mother and sister from poverty Lamont is ruled only by the law he is very attracted to Solay but his mission is the important thing and he distrusts her Eventually they ll have to trust each other confide in each and learn about what s truly important I did enjoy the story it seemed real and plausible than most medievals It dealt with real characters with understandable motivations and with divided interests or loyalties I thought that was a refreshing change from the usual plots and I m already looking for books by this authorGrade B Thank GoodnessI met Blythe at a conference and she was amazingly kind and friendly to me And being a wuss that made me absolutely terrified to read her books because I was afraid I wouldn t like themAnd I loved thisSolid characters Justin and Solay with real flaws who grow and change in realistic believable ways This is just a pleasant read easily couched in real events At a few points I got a little fed up with medieval English law but it never really got overbearingI m waiting for Jane s stor. Ead held high she walked as if the court adored her No matter the pain in her eyes Justin resolutely snuffed out a spark of sympathy He must guard against her bewitching charms.
