Hilary Mantel meets Sylvia Day: the final installment in a deliciously erotic trilogy begun in Wolf Bride, set against the sumptuous backdrop of the scandal-ridden Tudor Court by Elizabeth Moss.
SHE'S FALLEN TOO FAR...
Margerie Croft yielded her virginity before her wedding night, and then fled King Henry VIII's court, knowing she couldn't marry a man she did not love. Now she is viewed as soiled goods, fit only for the role of a courtier's plaything.
Virgil Elton has heard the wicked rumors, but something about Margerie calls to him. Drawn close despite himself, he invites her to help in his work to restore the king's flagging health. But as he comes to know her, Virgil discovers beneath the layers of protective reserve a woman who is as intelligent and passionate as she is beautiful. He will stop at nothing to heal the damage the court has inflicted, even if it means falling himself...

Rose Bride is my absolute favorite of the Lust in the Tudor Court series by Elizabeth Moss. I think seeing the court from a different perspective, but still close enough to all the nobility and even the King, really allowed the book to weave its own story while still giving that amazing Tudor feel. I did not like Margerie the first time I met her. I thought she was a little bit up in everyone's business, but I was quickly proven wrong. She's a sweet woman that has had her past manipulated and she has only recently come into her own self. Virgil was a great character. Trying his best to help King Henry get his new queen pregnant, he has to resort to some new herbs and medicine, but he isn't allowed to use them on the King until he has tested them himself. I loved how this set up some very interesting confrontations between him and Margerie. I wish there was more to the series, but it also ended in a really great place for all our characters. I think this is a series (especially book three) that I will have to revisit again sometime soon. **I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book**
I really enjoyed Margerie and Virgil. There was a whole lot of back and forth with these two that one would think that they were never going to get their HEA, but they finally did. A great conclusion to the series!
This is a fast paced drama filled read that will have you hooked from beginning to end. Margerie gave her virginity to her betrothed and then ran away. She ends up at court becoming a seamstress for Jane Seymour. Rumors circulate about the kind of reputation she has and will only be a mistress and never a bride. Until she meets Virgil, a doctor trying to help the King. The chemistry between Margerie and Virgil is hot but will rumors ruin this as well? I enjoyed the story as well as the characters. Steamy and suspenseful.
