The book I had problems with was Queen's Play, at least until after the fire. But I enjoyed it after that.
Currently reading - Emergence of a Nation State by Alan Smith

Oh, yes, Queen's Play takes a lot of suspension of disbelief.
I liked the way she portrayed the young Mary Queen of Scots.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info
