When I sit and wonder why this book was so special, then and now, I know it comes down to the hero. Yes, the French setting in the court of Francois I was really unique and incredibly well researched. Yes, I liked the heroine, Aimee, who was spunky without being annoying. Yes, the plot was very cute and there are some genuinely funny moments when Aimee is desperately trying to avoid the attentions of the king, who thinks she is her sister.
But the real heart of this book is in the hero, Thomas Mardouet, seigneur de St. Briac. In an era when alpha males grunted their way into nearly every romance novel, he was a deliciously refreshing, sexy, witty, intelligent, charming, breath of fresh air. Reading the newly released e-book, I fell in love with him all over again.
I remember loving Surrender The Stars almost as much as I loved this book, so I am going to seek it out and download it for a re-read. Hopefully it will be as fun, entertaining and delicious as this book, which I highly recommend.
Cynthia Wright writes such wonderful books. Whether I read one of her stories with a setting in the United States, London or French, each are extremely entertaining with intense detail to the historical moment, encouraging the reader to do some internet research themselves.
Historically, I learn much of the events of history—the machinations behind historical happenings is always intriguing. The setting is in France, and one I enjoyed very much. Narrator Tim Campbell is a favored narrator. His accents add sparkle to the dialogue. There are some French word pronunciations not quite right. Tim, if you happen to be reading this review, contact me. It’s just a few words, but it is worth mentioning.
Aimée de Fleurance is a delightful character, although one character of the story calls her a head-strong little vixen. At 17, she has zest of life, humor, a quick-wit and determination to succeed and outwit those who determine a woman’s future. Her approach to her problems create more and as a reader I laughed most the time! However much she wants control of her future, events wrap their tentacles neatly around her wrists and she must make the most of it.
Honorine, Aimée’s sister, is the prim and proper young lady, however, her flaw rests in her determination to be part of the royal entourage almost landing in the king’s bed. Aimée saves her sister, but can she save herself from a king who has long been imprisoned and just wants to cavort with desirable young women?
Thomas’s sarcastic remarks to his man-servant, Gaspire, are entertaining and vastly enlightening as to Thomas’s character and frame of mind.
Thomas and Aimee share one common trait, stubbornness. Each speak freely what is on their minds in a caustic, sharp-tongued manner making the dialogue absolutely great fun! Aimée plays with fire as events get out of hand.
There are many supporting characters who add a lot to this read and help develop the main characters further. All in all, this is one author I highly recommend for her historical romances. I look forward to continuing the series. It is one not to be missed!
Our hero, Thomas Mardouet, seigneur de St. Briac is a friend and confidant of the king & embroiled in court life at times.
Aimee de Fleurance, is a beautiful young girl with dreams and desires. She is a feisty heroine who doesn't let any obstacles get in her way. Aimee finds herself in "trouble" in many aspects of her life, including her childhood. She has a strained relationship with her mother due to her rebellious nature, but she is the apple of her father's eye.
The story begins with Aimee resting in the forest where she encounters two hunters. Unbeknownst to her, her hunters are actually the King and St. Briac. Aimee innocently insults the King. She is in awe of St.Briac and the attraction between them.
Through Aimee's schemes and hilarious ploys, St Briac feels a powerful pull towards Aimee, and doesn't understand why. He is constantly fighting the attraction.
The only thing that I didn't like in this story, was St. Briac's relationship with his mistress, Ghislaine Pepin. She was overly friendly and took too much of his time. Of course she was madly in love with him too.
In addition, the intrigue at court will keep you turning the page. You will not want to put this book down.
Cynthia Wright has written a treasure with "You and No Other". You will love this story of Aimee de Fleurance and Thomas Mardouet, seigneur de St. Briac. Aimee and St.Briac have a strong and endearing love story. St. Briac is a man you cannot forget-the Best of the Best. "You and No Other" is a keeper you will love to read over and over again.
I suggest reading the St.Briac series first before reading the Reveneau/Beauvisage/Hampshire Series.
