I have to say that i kind of had a problem with the fact that he was her father figure then her lover. It just didnt feel romantic, it felt like a daddy relationship. I also felt that there really wasnt good chemistry. I liked the time period it was set in and I felt like the story line was decent with good developed characters. BUT i felt like it just wasnt a good relationship for a romance novel. I mean unless you are into that.
I got pulled in from the start, liked the time period and setting, and felt a connection to the characters. I felt the relationship wasn't as romantic as it could've been and the whole thing ended too suddenly and could probably be redone.
It was an ok read. First of all, there is a HUGE age difference between the couple: he's 22 years older than she is. Arissa's the illegitimate daughter of Henry Bolingbroke and Richmond is his most trusted knight. On the night of her birth, Henry sends Richmond with the baby to take away to be raised by a noble family and to watch over her.
My issues with this book started when I saw the author used the word "lilliputian" which doesn't come into use until centuries after this events in the book take place. I normally don't pay much attention to such things, but this was enough for me to go and look up the word.
My other issue was that the relationship between Arissa and Richmond ended up making me very uncomfortable. I know I said I like older man/younger woman relationships, but this was a bit too much. Richmond calls Arissa "kitten" and Arissa often jumps in his lap to demand stories. This may not bother a lot of readers, but the way in which Richmond and Arissa acted...it creeped me out.
Another unsettling character, albeit a minor one, was Arissa's youngest sister, Regine. She's just 12 years old and is known to be kissing the serving maids, the stable boys, and ends up having sex with one of Richmond's knights. Again, the whole thing just made me uncomfortable.
The story itself wasn't bad, but I just couldn't get past the issues I had with the book. Other's might enjoy it, and from what I've seen of other reviews, a lot of people did. I just couldn't get past the father/daughter-ish relationship.
The book needed some better editing and by no means am I the best for this but even with all of the minor problems I had with the book I still loved it. I will definitely get more books and enjoy reading them all from this author!
