Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Blaze Morgan, at 15, is the eldest of Lord Robert Morgan's eight spirited but loving daughters, and the financially strapped aristocrat is relieved to have her married to Lord Edmund Wyndham, the kindly and enormously wealthy Earl of Langford, who promises to lavishly dower Blaze's seven sisters as well. This unpretentious romp through Tudor England spans 1521 through 1536 and follows sensuous, fiery Blaze as she gradually and passionately learns to love her husband and grieves deeply when he is killed in a hunting accident only three years after they are wed. Unjustly blaming her husband's nephew Anthony for the accident, Blaze seeks diversion at the court of Henry VIII where her country charm and healthy sexuality arouse the courtiers, inspire envious gossip and eventually beguile the monarch. The reluctant Blaze becomes Henry's mistress, his friend and even his unofficial adviser when he asks her aid in the politically sensitive matter of his divorce from Queen Catherine of Aragon. Ill-conceived additions to the plot a scheme to murder Blaze; an illness that strikes a devoted maid seem randomly thrown in as afterthoughts. But mass market bestseller Small's first hardcover novel after Enchantress Mine, etc., with its cast of beauteous women, lusty men, pages of elaborate costume description, coupled with a speedy tempo, should lure her paperback fans to cross the bookstore aisles. Doubleday Book Club alternate. May
Library Journal
Blaze's tumultuous tale opens in 1521 England with Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon on the throne. When 15-year-old Blaze marries the Earl of Langford, she eases the concern her father, Lord Robert Morgan, must feel about securing dowries for his eight daughters. When the earl dies suddenly, Blaze visits her sister in London, where she attracts the king's notice and becomes his unwilling mistress. When Henry succumbs to Anne Boleyn's charms, he marries off Blaze to her first husband's nephew, Tony, with whom she falls in love almost against her will. Small's fans in paperback this is her first novel in hardcover know what to expect: lots of sex and a good story. Doubleday Book Club alternate. Andrea Lee Shuey, Dallas P.L.

    BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ.

    I have read many of Bertrice Small's books and they are all great; however, Blaze Wyndam is my all time favorite book. I have read it 3 times and I will probably read it again. Every time I read it it still facinates me.
