[quote=""LadyB""]Love this one... we have the blonde lady again on the cover, a very imaginative title, and the author's surname (elsewhere listed as Wiseman) is spelled wrong :D

Also I like the "2" in the corner, just in case I wasn't sure it really was the second book in the series.

We could add that if it's "sex scandals of the Tudor court, the first one wasn't really a "medieval" bestseller (although that's rubbish anyway).

That kind of book doesn't really need to be historically accurate.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Considering that Lady Mary Grey was a hunchbacked dwarf and apparently short on looks, I have to wonder about the accuracy of the text therein.

I wonder why there's a different couple on the heart inset on Desperado's Kiss?

Not up on GR yet, and I don't have time to diddle with getting an image link. Too busy working at work today.
