I enjoyed the humor behind the witty remarks made by Sandhurst, the handsome hunk who is the hero. His character is very likeable and is very articulate.The beautiful heroine, Michelle, too is very likeable, and is able to win over the hearts of the hero's "not so friendly" family members. But so like in this genre, her emotional defenses weaken too easily when met with the irresistible charms of her man - love, the hero. There is mystery and suspense. Some good moments throughout. I found the dialogue between the two a bit too much at times. Ex: The two are in the midst of danger in one spot in the story and they take the time to kiss and fondle each other ... Bleh. Just not realistic in my way of thinking. Over done.
Some explicit sexual contents throughout.
Language is very mild.
Andrew Weston, Earl of Sandhurst, is young and reckless in his life and in the ways of love.
Michelene Tevoulere is a beautiful young widow unknowing in the ways of court life. Michelene married her childhood sweetheart and was content in her marriage until her husband, Bernard, started to spend more time at court.
Thomas Mardouet, seigneur de St. Briack and Aimee de St.Briac from "You and No Other" are friends of Michelene Tevoulere.
There is some intrigue occurring at court. Someone schemes to remove Michelene from court by arranging a marriage involving England's King Henry VIII.
The Earl of Sandhurst is appalled at the arranged marriage and seeks to convince Michelene Tevoulere otherwise. He masquerades as Andrew Selkirk, a very accomplished painter.
Michelene discovers her husband's infidelities at court and the true nature of his death. When she learns of the arranged marriage, she accepts immediately. Michelene decides she doesn't believe in love, especially the kind of love that her friend Aimee has with Thomas St. Briac.
When Michelene learns that King Francois I has asked Andrew Selkirk to paint her, she is surprised. Andrew and Michelle have a strong attraction for one another. During their time together, they also develop a friendship. Andrew is fighting against himself. He wants Michelene to love him as Andrew Selkirk and deny the arranged marriage with the Earl of Sanhurst. Michelene is confused thinking with her head, but feeling with her heart. She is torn between her love for Andrew Selkirk and her marriage to the Earl of Sandhurst. Duty vs Love. After all, Andrew Selkirk is just a painter. Will she make the right decision?
Ms. Wright takes you from France to England with this tale as Michelene and Andrew do Battle for Love to become Of One Heart. It is an enjoyable story of strength, love, and trust as both our hero and heroine fight the truth of their feelings. It is always a pleasure to see Ms. Wrights characters from other books make an appearance, especially Thomas St. Briac and Aimee from "You and No Other" (My Fav).
You don't want to miss this one!
When the reckless Marquess of Sandhurst is forced by King Henry VIII into an arranged marriage with a young French widow, he conceives a bold masquerade to outwit the king. Disguised as a humble portrait painter, Sandhurst travels to the French court of Francois Ist to have a look at his would-be bride.
Micheline Tevoulere, friend of Aimee & Thomas de St. Briac, has agreed to marry an unseen English nobleman because she has given up on love. Yet, when she sits for a portrait by a dashing artist with tender eyes, her heart begins to thaw.
As passion blooms, Sandhurst refuses to reveal his true identity unless Micheline renounces her betrothal to the wealthy and powerful Marquess of Sandhurst... even though he is his own rival!
In this enchanting novel of love and renewal, Cynthia Wright illuminates the world of Tudor England and France.
Micheline is sweet and very sheltered, if slightly misguided in her views on love. Andrew is a walking talking dichotomy about his arraigned marriage to the French beauty. In spite of the machinations of certain high players in the court of François I, Micheline and Andrew manage to find truth and love. But, that is just the beginning.
And on to England we go. Allons-y!
This new and fragile love of theirs needs to survive the rigors of Andrew's dysfunctional family and the cutthroat court of Henry VIII and Henry VIII's mercurial moods. Their love does manage to thrive and grow amid the horrors thrust upon them to enjoy a happy ever after.
A great read!
