Review Text

Trailing in the roundheeled footsteps of the immortal Angelique is Lorna MacMahon, snatched from Colonial America, who crosses continents at a clip while she is palped, raped, or nipped - "Oooh" - by a "hearty squeeze." Her captor, James Butler, is killed, and she is left with child, in Ireland, by the nicer Lennart. From then on it's all up as well as down - with King William, after Queen Mary dies of the fever, with the Tsar of Muscovy, with a King of Poland, and there are real wolves too as she scurries across the steppes of Russia. Can bed and boyerdom pall, when there's just too much going on to "dwindle her interest"? Come back again? Maybe she will. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
