This story is based on the true story of Charles II and his escape from Cromwell's Army. So Jane Lane did really exist. I really enjoyed this book. It made such a change reading a Historic Royal Novel that was not about Elizabeth I or Henry VIII. I found myself carrying this book around with me everywhere, hoping to be able to snatch a few moments to get back into this story. Jane Lane was a remarkable modern woman for the time and very brave, a really likable character that gives the reader a story with an edge, that gets you gripped with the story being so well told. I was so sad when I finished this book, but so happy to have discovered such a talented writer as Gillian Bagwell.
Jane Lane comes from a privileged life as the daughter of a nobleman, and yet she wishes to experience more that life has to offer. Then unexpectedly one eventful night turns out to be the catalyst that changes the course of her future forever, where imminent danger shrouded in mystery comes to the forefront. Trying to save the King's life whilst avoiding those loyal to Cromwell, Jane all too soon ends up on a perilous quest; a quest of the heart. Fate seems to have led her to Charles and now she has to make the ultimate decision on whether to fall prey to her passions or follow her head rather than her heart. This is a decision that not only affects Jane but the entire course of the future.
Sat on the edge of my seat in suspense throughout this thrilling love story will have you reading faster than ever before, as one plunges deep into a saga of politics, monarchy and feelings. Utterly thought-provoking and full of descriptive detail here is an author who has gone from strength to strength, exceeding and surpassing all expectations with a new book that is even better than her last. Here is the true story of Charles II's escape and the love and bravery of the woman who made it possible, re-told in such a way that is mesmerizing and truly spellbinding. As a follower of On the Tudor Trail book blog and reader of all things bygone era, I am thrilled to say that this book not only will sit at the top of my bookshelf but will also delight many readers of this genre. Without hesitation I predict that The King's Mistress will become this year's bestseller, as it is the most significant and remarkable read that I have had the pleasure of encountering this year; hence I look forward to reading more of this author's work.
