Hugh Beaufort, favoured courtier of King Henry VIII, likes his women quiet and biddable. Susannah Tyrell is neither of these things. She is feisty, beautiful, opinionated and brave. And Hugh is fascinated by her - despite himself.
Their lust is undeniable...
When Susannah pulls her most outrageous stunt yet and finds herself lost in the wilds of England, Hugh must go to her rescue. Neither of them is prepared for the dangers that lie in wait. But most dangerous of all is their desire for one another. Alone together in the forest, far from the restraints of court...
Their passion knows no bounds
The book is set in and around the court of King Henry VIII (after Anne Boleyn's downfall). Hugh Beaufort is a favoured steward to the King and friend of Lord Wolf. He finds himself tasked with finding Susannah before the court discover she's missing.
I liked Susannah and her antics made me laugh. I appreciated how she wasn't prepared to be controlled by any man and challenges the gender roles of the time. It took me longer to warm to Hugh but I think this was largely because he wanted Susannah, but was convinced he only wanted a malleable and quiet wife.
As with Wolf Bride there's lots of action and drama, and of course, sexy times. But my highlight was Susannah's spirit and sauciness. If you like your historical fiction with a lot of Tudor action and naughty times, then I think you'll enjoy Rebel Bride.
