This is book 2 of the Tudor Series and the sequel to CAUGHT IN THE ACT It is a sweet love story The heroine of the story, Corinna Huntington, is entirely too reasonable, responsible, and mature for an 18 year old She is a very likable character and so was the hero and rogue of the story, Count Rugar Kalisson They fall in love and find that they are at the mercy of a jealous Queen Elizabeth 1 There was not enough angst in the story line for me, and so, my level of interest began to wane I do enjoy Betina Krahn s writing and wouldn t hesitate to read of her books.
