Hilary Mantel meets Sylvia Day: the first installment in a deliciously erotic trilogy, set against the sumptuous backdrop of the scandal-ridden Tudor Court.
Bound to him against her will...
Lord Wolf, hardened soldier and expert lover, has come to King Henry VIII's court to claim his new bride: a girl who has intrigued him since he first saw her riding across the Yorkshire moors.
Eloise Tyrell, now lady-in-waiting to Queen Anne Boleyn, has other ideas. She has no desire to submit to a man she barely knows and who-though she is loath to admit it-frightens her more than a little.
Their first kiss awakens in both a fierce desire that bares them to the soul. But as the court erupts into scandal around the ill-fated Queen, Eloise sees firsthand what happens when powerful men tire of their wives...
There can never be too many erotic historical romances. To have the bedroom door of couples in period settings, language, and garb wide open is somehow just more indulgent and naughty. And we all love a good arranged marriage story, especially here in the first book in Elizabeth Moss’s Lust in the Tudor Court series, Wolf Bride, between Lord Wolf and lady’s maid Eloise, once childhood acquaintances but now virtual strangers. There’s a host of tropes here for the taking, and the fact that it’s all set around one of the most explosive, controversial events in history is a back-drop that will really set this trilogy apart.
