It is 1536 in England and Lord Wolf, a exceptional soldier has come for his bride. Eloise Tyrell, a lady in waiting for Queen Anne Boleyn, has no intention of giving herself to a man she barely knows. 

But when he first kisses her, he claims her and Eloise is at the mercy of the Wolf. When corruption occurs at the court around Eloise’s beloved Queen, Eloise begins to realize that marriage within the courts is nothing like she thought it would be.

Lust in the Tudor court is exactly what this book. Lust on the left, lust on the right, lust every where.

Eloise apparently is a plain looking girl but the fact that she has a bit of a smart mouth makes everyone want her. I don’t have an issue with this but I felt the book was just going for shock factor. I didn’t feel love between the two but it was lust. She’s upset at him but then wants to screw him because he is so attracted to him. The same goes for Wolf. It was lust from beginning to end and not that something with that but if love is supposed to come I was expecting some love and romance not just blunt and brute lust and submission.

However, despite this I enjoyed this book but to say that I enjoyed the book based on the story isn’t the case.  I enjoyed the book because Ms. Moss knows how to paint a really good image. This showed talent, passion and bluntness that I admire.

There isn’t really much to this story other than the sex.  Yes, the author makes it a big deal about the King, Wolf and Eloise but eh.
