Booklist Monthly Selections - #2 November 2000

Lady Guinevere Mallory is placed in a precarious position when her fourth husband dies, and her wealth is brought to the attention of King Henry VIII and his avaricious Privy Seal, Lord Cromwell. They send Hugh of Beaucaire, who has a personal interest in the widow, believing that his son is entitled to some of her first husband's property, to investigate the deaths of all of her husbands. As Hugh looks into her past, he becomes intrigued with Lady Mallory herself, whose story seems full of contradictions. Although she is direct and well educated, she is very closemouthed about her last husband, whom everyone refers to as a drunken brute, and all of her servants tell different stories about their whereabouts when he died. Hugh is sure of only two things when he takes Lady Guinevere to London to face the Privy Seal: his passion for her and the fact that she is in great danger. Filled with period detail and dynamic characters, Feather's appealing historical romance exemplifies the qualities that make her perennially popular. --Patty EngelmannCopyright 2000 Booklist Reviews

At age 28, beautiful Lady Guinevere Mallory has been widowed four times, and each bereavement has brought her more land and more wealth. Is she a murderess, a sorceress or simply a clever, though unlucky, woman? Set during the reign of Henry VIII and his dreaded minion, Thomas Cromwell, Feather's (The Least Likely Bride) latest historical romance is rich in detail and rife with intrigue. Lord Hugh of Beaucaire, himself a widower, believes his young son Robin has a legal right to some of the lands left to Lady Guinevere in the four marriage contracts she apparently wrote herself. He seeks the king's aid to secure his son's rights, and Cromwell, the king's Lord Privy Seal, encourages his investigation of Lady Guinevere. Lord Hugh does not know that the Privy Seal has plans of his own for the widow's riches. Hugh's stay on her estates gives him both reason to believe he may be right and reason to hope he is not, for he falls in love with Guinevere and her two daughters. He learns that two of her husbands apparently met their ends naturally, but discrepancies in her servants' stories about the most recent death require him to take her to London, where her saucy tongue sends her to the Tower. Will Lord Hugh save Lady Guinevere, and if he marries her, can he ever trust her? Typical of Feather's novels, the story succeeds as romantic fiction, with fine characterizations, sound historical background and an effective evocation of the precarious times when a king's favor or disfavor meant life or death. Striking cover art, romantic yet dignified, will draw in readers. (Jan. 9) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
