The characters are both very uninteresting. Added to thst VH is making a hsbit of turning previously beloved characters into villains. In this case it was Lincoln de Warren, the beautiful and beloved baby from A Year and a Day. She did the same with Simon de Montfort, and it is really lazy and shoddy writing.

I've read and loved all of Virginia Hensley's books. Notorious seemed to drag on. I kept reading thinking it would get better, but it did not. She's a much better author than this book portrays.

I rabidly awaited the publication of this book and was somewhat disappointed. In my opinion the two protagonists were very boring and that is usually not the case with Virginia Henley characters. In fact the secondary characters such as the queen and Roger had better heat then the two main characters. Plus they took forever to actually consumate their relationship, which I'm not used to in a Henley book. I was also disappointed with Lynx's and Jane's son who seemed to be very selfish and a coward, not what I expected from him. Not her greatest effort but I'll give her three starts based on her rich historical content.

It seem to take forever to finish the story. The book could have been written easily in about 250 pages. Too repetitive. I usually like her books, but I really wouldn't recommended this one.

Brianna de Beauchamp is betrothed to Lincoln Robert de Warenne so feels somewhat ashamed when she meets father and son Roger and Wolf Mortimer because she finds the young Wolf quite attractive. Still in spite of her urge, Brianna refuses to act on her feelings. However, Wolf desires her and rejects the concept that she belongs to Lincoln. He uses his special paranormal skill to seduce Brianna in her dreams. --- Meanwhile as part of the larger scale of conflict between Edward II and his estranged wife Queen Isabelle, her paramour Roger is interned inside the Tower. While Brianna and Wolf fall in love, he fears that his blood association as the son of the imprisoned Roger threatens his beloved at a time that alienating the de Warenne brood can prove deadly. --- Nobody consistently combines history and romance into an entertaining mix better than Virginia Henley does. Her latest tale brings to life England during the rule of Edward II through the relationship between Brianna and Wolf. The story line is fast-paced and stars a likable lead couple, whose hero¿s paranormal courting method is a unique way to win a lady. Meanwhile the intriguing triangle at court consisting of the king, his estranged queen and his male lover adds a sense of presence to a wonderful historical romance that some might insist is a romantic historical thriller. --- Harriet Klausner
