Review: The Queen's Lady by Eve Edwards

Although this is the second book in the Lacy chronicles you do not have to read them in order to understand what happens, though it may make more sense other then catching up in this one! This book follows Jane Rievaulx, a recent widow, though it was a marriage of convience she did love him as a dear friend, her step sons are in there 40's while she is just approacing her 20's. At her late husbands request she becomes Queen Elizabeth's lady and is thrilled when she sees James Lacey there although she was once engaged to James's older brother she always had strong feelings towards James and James thinks of her the same way!

1584 – Surrey, England When Lady Jane Rievaulx begins service to the Queen at Richmond Palace, she is thrilled at the court’s newest arrival . . . Master James Lacey. Despite her previous courtship with his older brother, James is the man she truly loves. And for his part, he cannot deny his fascination with her. However, James is setting sail on a treacherous journey to the Americas, seeking absolution for what he sees as past sins. But when Lady Jane is forced into a terrible situation by her own family, there is only one man to save her. Will Master James return to his lady - before it’s too late?

I love period novels and romance, the fact that girls my age were married off for their husbands fortune or family connections makes me wonder if I somehow wound up back in those days would my family marry me off? What class would I be, middle or poor?
