Quick-moving, well-plotted tale of intrigue and deception set among the Tudor court of Henry VIII. The heroine is an assassin; the hero is an honorable knight and illegitimate half-brother to Anne Boelyn, the woman Henry divorced his first wife for. The heroine has noble motives and doesn't want to kill anyone, but she's the pawn of a man who holds her father and sisters hostage. I enjoyed this book quite a bit and was never bored. Lots of good villains; it would have been great to have spent ev [...]
3.45 StarsDiabolical machinations and the female condition at the Tudor Court are at the heart of Laura Navarre’s The Devil’s Mistress. In her play on history, Navarre selects the most turbulent and invigorating of times…Henry VIII’s reign, and the rise of the Boleyn’s. Navarre’s debut historical romance chronicles the path of one woman’s life to free herself from an untenable situation, to be reunited with her family, and perhaps finally allow herself to love. But even the most in [...]
Laura Navarre has written an intriguing and perilous historical romance in her debut novel The Devil’s Mistress. In every written page you can feel the danger and deception that surrounds both Allegra and Joscelin in their quest to navigate King Henry VIII’s court during one of England’s most tumultuous time periods.

As required in any romance novel, The Devil's Mistress has its stalwart hero, Sir Joscelin, a man of humble pride, broad shoulders and a solid "manhood." As a bastard son, he is not all he seems, however, as he hitches his star to his half-sister, Anne Boleyn, who is about to marry Henry VIII. The story's heroine, Allegra, a raven-haired Italian beauty with eyes "the color of lilacs in bloom" and requisite lush breasts, is equally atypical-- she is also a cunning assassin, accused witch and whor [...]
I am a huge Tudor fan, I've read all the Boleyn books by Phillipa Gregory and this book was so far out there that I couldn't even 1. follow the story, 2. believe that such a thing would even happen, 3. enjoy it! I wouldn't recommend this one! Don't waste your money! You want to read about the Tudors invest in Ms. Gregory she knows her stuff, and you'll be up til 3 or 4 am finishing one of hers!
Wonderful job Laura ;) much love Angel
