Ther by rapturous and reckless passion surrendering to the forbidden ecstasy of a bold soul searing love that would inflame the wrath of a jealous ueenand provoke a diplomatic scandal. The start of the book was slow If not for the stay at home order I may have stopped reading this book It is this reason that I only rated this book 3 stars That is not to say there was nothing good about the start of the book The pace picks up once the primary hero Rugar realizes that he is well and truly smitten with the primary heroine Corrina I saw primary because there is secondary couple that can also be called hero Torgne and heroine Anne but they are supporting characters With the main setting being the court of ueen Elizabeth I there is a lot of court intrigue While it is difficult to know how historically accurate the book shows behind the scenes views of the ueen s life and decision making Those scenes are entirely believable yet one uestions how uickly she would have made a decision based on one conversation with an advisor The latter part of the story does prove surprising in how the issue of where both couples live Sweden or England is resolved

Behind Closed Doors

Hate and scorn him for his Swedish heritage vowing to best Elizabeth's knights in contestand her ladies in love A sheltered English rose and a virile 'Viking' nobleman are drawn toge. I completely loved this a fabulous and exciting tale of a wickedly attractive but flawed Viking hero Rugar determined to best ueen Elizabeth for her slights against his people and his father once an emissary to her court from Sweden He decides to best all her knights and seduce his way through her retinue but is stopped in his tracks by his inconvenient attraction to the beautiful and clever Corina Huntington The ueen s beloved and newest Lady in WaitingI know that this is an old fashioned romance and so the heroine is impossibly perfect beautiful innocent kind and selfless as well as intelligent and learned but heck this is a romance and so I do love this type of heroine when written well and Corina is not stuffy I like the way she accepts and befriends her scandalous cousin for instance Rugar is a rugged alpha hero who is brought down to earth with a bump because of his love for Corina and the way his own prejudice against the English are reflected back to him by the way the Swedish court treat Corina when he takes her there as his bride Once Corina and Rugar are compromised by their behaviour they are wed but as Elizabeth and others plot to separate the lovers and destroy Rugar can they outwit their powerful adversaries and find a way to be happy across their two culturesThe joy in this book for me was the way that Bettina Krahn depicts life at court with its shallowness frustrations and how she portrayed the ueen as vindictive yes trying to keep Corina with her and hurt Rugar but also how isolated and difficult her position was and how she was human underneath her rank and court intrigues It was a really exciting plot with lots of interesting historical detail and characters I really rooted forHighly recommended if you like an old school historicalI voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book via Netgalley and all opinions are my own
