Overview

At the Queen's Summons (Tudor Rose Series #3) by Susan Wiggs

Feisty orphan Pippa de Lacey lives by wit and skill as a London street performer. But when her sharp tongue gets her into serious trouble, she throws herself upon the mercy of Irish chieftain Aidan O'Donoghue.

Pippa provides a welcome diversion for Aidan as he awaits an audience with the queen, who holds his people's fate in her hands. Amused at first, he becomes obsessed with the audacious waif who claims his patronage.

Rash and impetuous, their unlikely alliance reverberates with desire and the tantalizing promise of a life each has always wanted—but never dreamed of attaining.

But she'll see him in her own good time because the tension between England and Ireland is high. As he kills time in the city with his cousin Donal Og and friend Iago, Aidan spies a ragged entertainer with light fingers, a gift of gab, and spunkiness to spare, and comes to her rescue by proclaiming himself her patron when she goes too far. Thus it is that the orphan Pippa comes into his life and his heart. Aidan carries a burden of guilt about his dead father, about his loveless, unconsummated marriage, and about the welfare of his starving people. Pippa lives in hope of finding her family (she has flashes of memory about a sinking ship and a dog and carries a misshapen gold brooch whose jewels she has sold off to keep her alive). Long years of scrabbling to eat should have broken her, but Pippa is valiant and vibrant. Through frequent excerpts from two separate diaries - one kept by Revelin of Inisfallen and the other by Lark de Lacey, Oliver's wife [book 2] - we learn the backstories of Aidan and Pippa. The main story of Aidan and Pippa is rich, romantic and compelling. He finds love in her and she finds family in him, but life keeps interrupting them: the queen imprisons him in the Tower; Pippa frees him; and they flee to Ireland where more challenges are to be overcome. Read this for yourself and be prepared to settle down to a rousing and satisfying end to the Tudor Rose Trilogy.

While recovering from an illness a friend dropped this book off to get me thru the day...it was better than daytime television but less what I would expect from a Harvard graduate. The book was more like an outline, without much in the way of details and a very predictable plot.

Loved the personalities and circumstances in which they found themselves. Fun series.

A MUST READ! Loved all 3 Tudor Rose books. This one was fantastic too and can stand alone. Love the way Ms Wiggs writes.

Provacative romance with drama. A page turner indeed!

Susan Wiggs weaves a wonderful witty and intricate story. I love all of the characters and their interactions. Even though you know in your heart what is going to happen (I like that it has a happy ending) you cannot wait to see how things are going to happen. I cannot put it down once I start. I love Pippa, her strength and logical head. I did feel that the end happened to abruptly. I would have liked to have more details another chapter maybe. I think there was more to tell. There is some intimacy portrayed.
