Notorious

Never before published from the New York Times bestselling author of Infamous The daughter of Jory de Warenne and lady in waiting to ueen Isabelle the spirited Brianna de Beauchamp is betrothed to the distinguished Lincoln. Notorious the seuel to Infamous is set in the 1320s and claims to be the romance of Brianna de Beauchamp ludicrous modern name there and Wolf Mortimer Many of the characters in Notorious were real people in fourteenth century EnglandI say claims because Brianna and Wolf disappear from the narrative at regular intervals while Henley focuses on the story of Edward II and his wife Isabella and their lovers Here Notorious becomes deeply unpleasant and readers may become deeply dismayed as I did at the endless references to Edward II as unnatural and perverted because he loves men He s also portrayed as highly feminised and weak a horrible and offensive stereotype of a gay man ueen Isabella s adultery with Mortimer is acceptable however because her lover Mortimer is so ultra manly And heterosexual The blatant double standards and endless countless numerous statements that Edward II is unnatural and perverted and disgusting because he loves men and Henley s statement in her author s note that his supposed murder by red hot poker which no modern 14th century historian accepts as truth was ingenious made me feel sick How do books with such disgustingly homophobic attitudes get publishedThe characters are not medieval English people as they re said to be but modern Americans who think act and talk American Brianna has freedoms that no medieval noblewoman could ever have dreamed of The overall impression is one of modern American characters dashing round England and Scotland in fancy dressIn Notorious any resemblance to real fourteenth century England and real persons living or dead is purely coincidental I laughed out loud at the presence of the earl of Warwick in 1327 when historically he died in 1315 Notorious is not even an interesting romance as the hero Wolf is a creep who uses his gift of second sight to spy on Brianna while she s undressing and Brianna herself is whiny and spoilt Her catchphrase I shouldn t but I shall gets even irritating than her mother Jory de Warenne s I ve uite made up my mind in the preuel InfamousAnyone looking for a well written sexy romance with accurate historical detail will be wasting their time

    1110 This is really 25 stars Most of those 25 stars come from the fact that Notorious was continuing the story begun in A Year and a Day I do like a book that's part of a series which continues the story of a previous couple I like to read that they're still married with a whole ton of kids and still love each other even if they're old in t
