Overview


Is he a half-mad court jester or a brilliant spy for the king?

Lady Julianna knows this much for certain: He is no fool when it comes to the art of seduction.

Nicholas Strangefellow is a scoundrel prized by King Henry himself--a court jester. Now sent to the wedding of the Earl of Fordham to entertain, but secretly under orders from the King to bring back a legendary chalice, Nicholas is a man on a mission that could easily be bollixed. Suddenly the chances of bollixing increase merrily when he meets irresistible Julianna, the widowed daughter of the bride-to-be.

After a loveless arranged marriage, Julianna plans to join a convent. Yet she finds herself in wickedly provocative conversation with, of all men, the king's mocking, ribald "wedding present" to the Earl. Nicholas--the jester, the fool, and a mere commoner, who immediately decides to seduce her while procuring the chalice for King Henry.

What follows is a rollicking comedy, an intrigue spiced with villains and danger, but most of all, a tender and sexy romance. Nicholas is hardly the husband a noblewoman should choose, and when he's faced with a choice between desire and betrayal, or loyalty to King and a comfortable life, he'll have to confront the shocking truth. That he's become a fool for love.

    An Unusual Historical

    Ms. Stuart has a flair for writing something different. How many 'fools' have been the 'heros' in historical romance? The conversation between h/h is sooo clever. Absolutely love, Nicholas' bawdy rhymes, jokes. And Julianna tries, to hold her distance. The romance itself is warm, rather than hot. There's a secondary romance that's sweet and unusual. And, the adventure brings in a fun cast...'killer' fosterling, wicked priest, enigmatic brother. This book is much fun, much romance!

    Why do fools fall in love?

    This was an entertaining, enjoyable book. It does not follow the usual outline of romance novels and there lies the fun. This author has a tremendous gift for setting the reader up and keeping the reader laughing. Although the outcome is predictable, the reader is wondering, how is this going to come about. The heroine is not beautiful in the sense authors usually describe their heroines. The hero is not the usual dapper lord we are used to but he has his good points. It definitely has something for everyone--mystery, romance, treasure hunt.
