Another great review for "The King's Mistress"!

Here's a quote from the lovely review in the Lancashire Evening Post:

"The King’s Mistress is that spellbinding combination of history, adventure, suspense and a fast-beating pulse of pure eroticism. Jane – pragmatic, patient, constant and brave – proves to be the perfect foil for Charles, one of England’s most fascinating and libidinous kings. Their story is a real romantic treat."
And here's the link to the complete review:
