Summary

Year of our Lord 1283

In the light of the early dawn, Lady Fay traverses her parapet wall and waits with bow drawn taut. Only when she realizes the group of men who exit the Saxon rowboat are tonsured does she allow herself to breathe. She need not shoot another of King Alexander's suitors. At least not today. With a wicked grin, she lets go the bowstring, and the arrow makes a perfect arc to land directly in front of the one in the lead. She isn't so fond of priests, either.

Nicholas Bruce jumps when the barb lands within inches of his sandaled feet. The former queen of the Isle of Man is just as beautiful and deadly as he remembers. Suddenly, he is not so certain that this holy disguise will work. Surely she'll remember him, the bastard grandson of the mighty Earl of Annandale. But what choice does he have? If he wants to survive, he needs to bed her, and soon.

Determination and perseverance

How To Seduce A Queen by Stella Marie Alden is another well written medieval romance. While this is the third book of her romance novels, it is completely stand alone. I accidentally listened to this book second, but I was not lost by any means. Nicholas and Lady Fay have some history and Nicholas sets out to woo the Lady Fay by untruthful and misleading ways. While Fay seems to be softening to "Nicodemas", others are plotting against Lady Fay and her keep. As the plot and the story move forward, there's plenty of medieval danger and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Overall an exciting and steamy medieval romance with the best HEA.

Who is doing the seducing?

Interesting storyline. I quite enjoyed this book however, as I listened to it out of order, I was kind of confused about some of the characters. It didn't take the enjoyment out of the story though. Our queen is a brave and strong lass. However, she has had quite a tragic past of sort. Our hero, well, I didn't think much of him at first. However, he did win me over knowing what he sacrificed in order to keep the queen safe. And as much as our hero plans to seduce the queen, it might be her seducing him in the end.

Edit: This book is much more serious than the other books in the series but considering some of the things that happened in the book to both the main characters, that is understandable. There is some humor and lighter parts to this book to balance it out, although some of the themes may be triggers for some readers.

Narrator did very well. No issues with her at all with the accent.

Overall, good book, good series!

I am voluntarily leaving an honest review for this book.

His Queen

I love this historical story that pulls you into a life of strife, tradition, expectation and love doesnt always mean you get the person you want. The adventure, strife and mystery is exciting and I loved reading the book and listening to the audio. The narrator took me to a land that was wonderful.

Another Great Historical Fiction Romance!

I offered to review this audiobook because I am such an an avid reader but also almost exclusively audio due to my schedule. Because of this, I can be critical of narrators. Especially when books have a single narrator required to speak with different voices for multiple characters. Most cannot do it without having some errors where they use the wrong 'voice' for the wrong character. I am a true believer in the fact that a bad narrator can destroy a great book and have turned away several books with good ratings because of just that. The narrator in this book did a great job, so I was able to listen to the book without issue.

Next is the story. I am not one to give a lot of specific story details since I feel you should read the story for that, and in this case, you won't be disappointed. This is book 3 in a fun romance series, which has great characters that make you not want to quit listening. The storyline was an easy read and quite entertaining, with intrigue, deception, and romance. I am hoping there is more books in the series because I have enjoyed all the books so far!

I received a free review copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Intense!

I was taken aback from when the story started. I didn’t not expect that scheme to be conjured! The happenings, from up and down, beginning to end kept on at the edge of my seat and on my toes. It was absolutely brilliant!

Seducing a Queen

I enjoyed listening to this book.
Nicholas is a bastard son and has no right to have her, but he has been ordered to seduce her and get her with child.
Lady Fay is caught in a world full of men plotting her life and marriage, even if she disapproves of the suitors. Then she falls for a monk, or is her?
Can either of them stay alive long enough to ever tell each other the truth?
