I didn't know if I wanted to give this book 3 or 4 stars. This is one of the few books that I've given a .5 because I'm undecided.
There were some things that annoyed the heck out of me. Mostly that Eloise was always misunderstanding what Wolf was doing. I get the scene with the king (if she didn't believe Wolf everything would have gone down the hill), and at the beginning of their marriage (since she didn't know him) but the rest I just didn't get. She didn't even had a kernel of doubt. I mean he did ask her to trust him no matter what happened and she agreed with it.
As for Wolf himself? Oh my! *Fans self* What a man. I think if the story was all from his POV this would have been a 5+ stars review. But alas it was not. He was very sure of himself and in his position within the king's ranks. Even that odious Cromwell with all his influence with the king didn't put a damp on his knowledge that the king was more likely to believe him that any of the court gossip.
I will give this series a try again with the next book Rebel Bride since I was intrigued by Hugh throughout the book and more so after that ending. I just hope I don't get annoyed by Sussanah's POV.
