The court of King Henry VIII is a place for intrigue and
lust -- as long as you're not the queen. In WOLF BRIDE,
Eloise Tyrell is a lady in waiting to Henry's second wife,
Anne Boleyn. She knows the queen's secrets -- and she has
forbidden flirtation of her own with a handsome courtier.
Her father, though, has plans for Eloise. He has promised
her in marriage to a rough soldier, Lord Wolf.
Wolf fell in love once, years ago. He has promised himself
that he will not make the same mistakes. He will take a
hand with his new, young bride. He soon finds that he
doesn't want to break her spirit, but when Queen Anne is
tried for treason, Wolf may have to break Eloise's heart
save her from the Tower and the axe.
I've read a great deal of fiction and non-fiction about
Tudor Court, and I enjoyed the way author Elizabeth Moss
weaves historical characters and details into WOLF BRIDE.
The tension at court around Anne's trial is palpable. I
found it quite enjoyable from that standpoint.
This is a story where if the characters just talked
to each other, they would avoid a lot of drama. Moss
generally gives good reasons why they keep their thoughts
themselves, but it is frustrating in some scenes.
If you enjoy intense and graphic sex scenes, you're in for
treat here. Wolf is a domineering but usually patient
and Eloise is a young bride intrigued and tantalized by
acts he asks her to perform.
I recommend WOLF BRIDE for readers who enjoy the Tudor
period and steamy historical romance. If you like this
you'll be delighted to hear it's the first in Moss'
the Tudor Court series.
