WHITE ROSE ENSNARED is beautifully written, with great characters and truly wild sex. While the frequent non-consentual sex may be too much for some, this novel explores the dynamics of lust and domination very well ("the mind can hate but the body can still enjoy") and even at the worst the "tortures" involve amazing sex. If you want an intense novel that blends historical romance with sexual conquest, get WHITE ROSE ENSNARED. And prepare to read it over and over and over...
This is one of the most beautiful erotic novels I have read. The Mediaeval setting -- 1461, during the War of the Roses -- is absolutely captivating. Juliet Hastings makes this erotic delight shine with rich descriptions of this obscure time period coupled with a compelling story and smoldering erotic scenes to boot. The characters are also great. Sir Ralph Aycliffe is someone you'd love to hate, yet you can't help but be turned on by this rough alpha male. He is a cross between Captain Alexei Rostovich from The Captivation (one of my all-time favorite Black Lace historical novels) and Lucas from Pleasure's Daughter (another unforgettable Black Lace historical erotica). He is one of those cruel, disarming, yet infuriatingly sexy anti-heroes that you cannot help but have mixed feelings about. He is not as scrumptious and compelling as Alexei or as hateful and insatiable as Lucas, but he is a fascinating character in his own right. There are other great characters here as well. I enjoyed Margery, Rosamund's very uninhibited personal maid, and Isabella, Rosamund's best friend. Geoffrey is good as well, but he sort of reminds me of Nicholas from The Captivation -- the good guy who is not quite as memorable as the anti-hero. All in all, White Rose Ensnared is one of the best Black Lace novels I've read in quite a long time. I loved the setting, loved the sexual descriptions, loved the story, but I especially loved the characters. I cannot recommend this gem enough!
