    One thought on “Rumors at Court”

    1. I m no medieval scholar, which is why I appreciate how the author writes about the time period She has a way of infusing her stories with the history without making it dull or hopelessly confusing the reader There s a nice mix of internal and external conflict in this story, and even with all the courtly intrigue surrounding the romance, this is a quiet story The heroine with no desires to remarry after her abusive husband is killed in battle, and the hero who desperately wants to leave England [...]

    2. Miss Bates is a fan of Gifford s medieval set romances Rumors is set among the machinations and intrigue of Edward III s court One of Gifford s many appeals is her hero s and heroine s place among royalty and aristocracy Though not of peasant descent, they are always subject to the whims of the royals they serve Decisions are made for them, even by benign lords and masters such as the ones featured in Rumors.The romance opens as John of Gaunt, Edward III s third son, marries Constance of Castile [...]

    3. I think my love for historical romance is pretty well known to anyone who reads my reviews by now, but I admit to a particular soft spot for historical romances that weave in actual historical personages and events into the storyline Sharon Kay Penman s Welsh Princes trilogy is perhaps the most shining example of the type, and if you enjoyed those, you ll absolutely love this.Rumors at Court though it should be Rumours with a u, this is set in England is centred around a fictional couple, Valeri [...]

    4. Nice story With the description on the back of the book, I expected them to be wed well before they were I figured it would be within the first few chapters I had a problem with them calling each other husband and wife before they were married it confused me because I was like did I miss the wedding I disliked Katherine secondary character didn t care that she was nice, just didn t like her or John Overall, this was a good book, just not very engaging and to me the back description was just a bi [...]

    5. The book was surprisingly compelling even give very simple prose and painfully straightforward plotting I m such a sucker for stories of palace intrigue, and this delivered Plus this fed into my new medieval Spain Andalusia obsession.

    6. Blythe often stays too close to the painful realities of womanhood of the medieval era she writes of This one, however, worked for my modern sensibilities Took a painful reality and made it flow into healing Loved it.

    7. Gifford s third installment in her Royal Weddings series delights on every level, from the sumptuous settings to the whispered, but no less devastating, rumors spinning through the royal court As her fans know, Gifford s characters are always well developed and, based on their previous life experiences, deeply resistant to a new passion until, of course, love gets its way with even the most stubborn heroes and heroines 4 stars RT Book Reviews.Miniseries Royal Weddings
