Review
  • Best-seller Small continues her Friarsgate Inheritance series by focusing on Philippa, Rosamund Bolton’s willful eldest daughter, who couldn’t care less about her mother’s beloved estate. Even though she is destined to inherit Friarsgate, Philippa prefers to spend her time at court serving as one of Queen Katherine’s maids of honor. When Philippa’s fiance, Giles Fitzhugh, unexpectedly breaks their engagement, King Henry VIII and Queen Katherine send Philippa back to Friarsgate, mistakenly thinking she needs time for her wounded affections to heal. Fortunately, one of Philippa’s favorite relatives soon arranges a new match with Crispin St. Clair. At first Philippa is certain she can convince Crispin to allow her to continue her service to the queen, but she soon discovers that she prefers spending time with her sexy, soon-to-be-husband rather than dallying at court. Brimming with colorful characters and rich in historical detail, Small’s boldly sensual love story is certain to please her many devoted readers. -- John Charles (BookList, 09-15-2004, p228)
  • Rendezvous Review: Philippa Meredith loves life at court more than being heiress to Friarsgate Manor. This is the only life she wants especially after being jilted. Philippa gets what she wants through stubbornness and being headstrong until she meets Crispin St. Clair, the Earl of Witton. Crispin needs a wife so he agrees to Uncle Tom's proposition. Little did he know but he was about to take on more than just a wife. They get off to a rocky start. Passion brings them together although it doesn't last as Philippa stumbles into a plot that could destroy all that their country worked towards. The interaction between characters grips you--there are lots of emotions involved which are interwoven into a plot where you have to figure out what everyone really wants. -- Wilhelmenia Kendall (Reviewed 09-01-2004)
