I really really love Betina Krahn s latest books especially her current series about the Bumgarten family of dollar princesses but this isn t one of those It was originally published in 1991 which I realised to my dismay a few pages into it when I started thinking that it read very old skool and went to Goodreads to check I mean it s not old skool like something from the 1970s which features forced kisses and other icky nonconsensual things but it does start off with a hero having revenge fantasies about heartlessly seducing women he doesn t even know something which is a pretty instant turn off and I don t think you d see published in a romance todayThe book needs trigger warnings for child sexual abuse the hero was raped by an older woman at court when he was 13 and for animal cruelty there s a way too graphic scene where a bear bull and ape are baited and killed by dogs for the entertainment of the Elizabethan court Rugar the hero starts off overbearing but it s slowly revealed that he does have a difficult history which has had the logical result of turning him into something of a control freak who hates to lose at anything Pitting himself against ueen Elizabeth however is nothing short of foolhardy because Elizabeth really didn t tolerate losing well at all and Rugar s not the only one the ueen s anger falls uponWhich brings us to Corinne our heroine a favourite of the ueen because of her innocence her uick mind her beauty and frankly her being a massive Mary Sue Corrie is uite literally too perfect for words and as perfect people do she really uickly started to get on my nerves Even a potential enemy is charmed into becoming an ally by Corinne being just her adorably artless self something which came off really unlikely given the Mean Girls vibe the court ladies gave off in general That s actually very historically accurate given what we know of Elizabeth I s court historical accuracy is probably this book s strongest point and I found nothing to uibble with on that front at all Scenes featuring the ueen herself were fascinating showing Elizabeth as strong willed tireless and perpetually Angry at the world she found herself living in I wanted of her and less of the perfect CorinneNo matter how well written and historically accurate the book though the fact that I didn t like either of the two main protagonists in the romance leave this as a three star for me It s not terrible but it s not up to the standard of Betina Krahn s recent writing Disclaimer I received a review copy of this book via NetGalley

Behind Closed Doors Free read À 104 Hate and scorn him for his Swedish heritage vowing to best Elizabeth's knights in contestand her ladies in love A sheltered English rose and a virile 'Viking' nobleman are drawn toge. 35 starsThis was one of those reads where if I read it at any other time or if I reread it I probably would have had a lot of issues with it that would put this in the 225 star range but I did read it at the right time Now I ve been wantingneeding a historical romance set in Late PlantagenetTudorElizabethan era I have a couple on my shelf set I think when Henry VIII was King but this one caught my eye Corrie is one of Elizabeth s maids of honor actually she s a favorite of Elizabeth s maids of honor Rugar is a Swedish Count and is an ambassador for the King he also wants to get revenge for slights that Elizabeth gave his father years ago and essentially get all the women close to Elizabeth into his bed which would tick the ueen off However he is instantly captivated by Corrie and sets out to make her the first he defiles Rugar thinks she s experienced than she actually is and when he finds out she s never been with a man in any way he casts her aside and pursues every other woman in the court Behind Closed Doors started out really slowly The first 50 pages were kind of boring but then finally when Rugar gets to court the story picks up a lot and from there stuff started happening As I was reading this I didn t really like either Corrie or Rugar Rugar because of how he treated Corrie after he found out she was still very innocent and Corrie because she kept going after him She would catch him walking being close with or whispering in other women s ears and still think the best of him and chase after him Both got on my nerves However I really enjoyed this Didn t want to put it down
