Yet as England's bravest men ride off to put down the Welsh rebellion Jory's thoughts are with the one gallant knight she can never forget and the passion that will one day be rekindled amid the march of histo I think it is best for all concerned if I stay away from historical romances from now on unless I get a specific recommendation HOW IS THIS THE MIDDLE AGES PEOPLE Religion is barely mentioned dialogue shifts unpredictably between vague attempts at sounding old fashioned but nothing even close to Middle English obviously I don t even know where to start on the history there s some random editorializing about Robert the Bruce etc and cultural attitudes about ethnicity gender sexuality etc are stunningly anachronistic unless it suits the plot at which point we get SURPRIZE HOMOPHOBIA which was also suspiciously modern in many ways and also conniving mystical Welsh people Also every time there was a graphic sex scene I began to wish there wasn t because the prose was so excruciatingly bad Honeyed sheath for reals This even made it into s list of statistically improbable phrases Prose also suffered from a serious case of telling and not showing throughout Additionally I hate plot devices which depend on characters one portrays as intelligent doing really dumb things like writing because everyone knew how to write back then Especially teh womens ambiguous notes instead of ones that actually convey necessary information In conclusion I m not sure why I finished this one and if I hated it this much anyone familiar with this period in history is likely to start throwing thingsLarger uestions about the genre this book raised for me What do people look for in historical romances I was thinking that the ambiance might be interesting than the contemporary ones since I enjoy historical fiction and tend not to be as interested in novels which are just about everyday 21st century people And I figured medieval Europe had fewer chances of being horrifying than any of the ones on the list that involved say the word sheikh I suppose for some people get the fantasy they want out of the historical trappings without any pretense at accuracy but for that to work for me you d have to set it in some sort of fantasy alternate universe instead And have better prose etc Are there historicals that do this

    After reading A Year and a Day the first book in the de Warenne series I was excited to read Infamous believing it would be good even if not uite as good as the first book I was wrong The first 60% of the book takes place prior to the end of A Year and a Day and there is a fair amount of repetition from the first book and I mean WORD FOR WORD repetition Even the material that occurs before the beginning of A Year and a Day is so predictab

    Historical romance Another of my friend's culls and I totally understand why Both main characters were temperamental and clueless the dialogue was clunky and it's uite oddly plotted for a romance the two main characters meet in the first 100 pages but then the heroine spends the next 150 pages trapped in a bad marriage and the hero hardly appears at all
