Behind Closed Doors

Under the ueen's protective eyeIn the halls of a conniving courtBehind Closed DoorsManly and magnificent Count Rugar Kalisson swears vengeance on the insulting overbearing English who. I really really love Betina Krahn s latest books especially her current series about the Bumgarten family of dollar princesses but this isn t one of those It was originally published in 1991 which I realised to my dismay a few pages into it when I started thinking that it read very old skool and went to Goodreads to check I mean it s not old skool like something from the 1970s which features forced kisses and other icky nonconsensual things but it does start off with a hero having revenge fantasies about heartlessly seducing women he doesn t even know something which is a pretty instant turn off and I don t think you d see published in a romance todayThe book needs trigger warnings for child sexual abuse the hero was raped by an older woman at court when he was 13 and for animal cruelty there s a way too graphic scene where a bear bull and ape are baited and killed by dogs for the entertainment of the Elizabethan court Rugar the hero starts off overbearing but it s slowly revealed that he does have a difficult history which has had the logical result of turning him into something of a control freak who hates to lose at anything Pitting himself against ueen Elizabeth however is nothing short of foolhardy because Elizabeth really didn t tolerate losing well at all and Rugar s not the only one the ueen s anger falls uponWhich brings us to Corinne our heroine a favourite of the ueen because of her innocence her uick mind her beauty and frankly her being a massive Mary Sue Corrie is uite literally too perfect for words and as perfect people do she really uickly started to get on my nerves Even a potential enemy is charmed into becoming an ally by Corinne being just her adorably artless self something which came off really unlikely given the Mean Girls vibe the court ladies gave off in general That s actually very historically accurate given what we know of Elizabeth I s court historical accuracy is probably this book s strongest point and I found nothing to uibble with on that front at all Scenes featuring the ueen herself were fascinating showing Elizabeth as strong willed tireless and perpetually Angry at the world she found herself living in I wanted of her and less of the perfect CorinneNo matter how well written and historically accurate the book though the fact that I didn t like either of the two main protagonists in the romance leave this as a three star for me It s not terrible but it s not up to the standard of Betina Krahn s recent writing Disclaimer I received a review copy of this book via NetGalley
