I realize that this book is getting rave reviews, but honestly, I find it boring. The basic plot.....Elizabeth's council argues that she should be married, she pouts, finally agrees, they bring out a suitable candidate, she strings him along, then rejects him in a hissy fit. She turns to Lord Robert, yet again, until the next time. Lather, rinse, repeat....

An obviously well-researched and interesting fictionalized account of the romance between Queen Elizabeth I and Lord Robert Dudley. Unfortunately, Elizabeth's constant indecisiveness and the way she used manipulation to get what she wanted were a source of frustration for me and kept me from really loving this book.
