New York Times bestselling author Virginia Henley weaves an enchanting tale of passion and intrigue in England's Golden Age-where a woman's reckless search for adventure leads her to the man destined to claim her...

Catherine Seton Spencer, a young maiden of Queen Elizabeth's court, is cursed with impulsiveness. When she meets Patrick Hepburn, who's visiting the court after a tour of duty patrolling the Scottish borderlands, Cat thinks he's an arrogant brute-and Patrick thinks Cat's a spoiled shrew. Divided by loyalties and society, but bound by desire that drives them into each other's arms, Cat and Patrick find themselves in an intricate web of deceit and danger that threatens to topple the throne-and tear the lovers apart.

 

  • Of all the books written by this author, and I own all of them, this is my least favorite. I must tell you when I met the main female character, Catherine, I was so tired of her negative attitude from the beginning to the end. Generally, I read my books two or even three times. This one I read once and would not pick it up again.

  • Haven't finished this one yet but so far it is not one of my favorite Virginia Henley books. But I still love her books and plan to read more after this one!

  • I loved it. She is one of my favorite writers.

  • I never finished reading the story because the king was disgusting and Patrick Hepburn was boring, his character didn't really develop. I love Virginia Henley book too. The Raven and the Rose, The Dragon and the Jewel, the Falcon and the Flower (my Fav) and others.

  • This book was so packed with details, and romance, it seemed like I had been there in person. Highly recommend it.

  • Insatiable will keep you up reading way past when you thought you would stop. The hero was strong and smart. The heroine a bit less so. Having the heroine declare over and over again how Impetuous she was got a bit tired. She had moments with children and her family like maid Maggie where she showed heart and real emotion. The mother and daughter relationship wa a treat, I would have liked to see it a bit more and see a bit of her mothers thoughts on the subject.

    All in all another great read by Virginia Henley

  • I love Virigina Henley's historicals. You are ALWAYS guaranteed a good historical read. Her characters are always vibrant and alive and Patrick and Catherine are no exception. These two strike sparks from their first introduction and it doesn't end there. As a result it was fun to read how these two very strong willed people were able to find love between themselves without loosing that which set them apart.

    Readers that might be new to Ms. Henley might be put off by the strong-willed nature of Catherine...okay, Catherine is a brat to put it mildly. But she will be tamed by her Scot. Patrick is beyond patient with her and understands her better than she understands herself. The fact that he has the capability to see her thoughts gives him the added insight he needs to love her the way she deserves. Her past has dictated the way she acts and he understands this. He sets about to gain her without killing her spirit.

    With the back drop of Queen Elizabeth's court and all of the intrigue that came with this time period, fans of historical romance will be well pleased. Ms. Henley truly has a talent for transporting her reader into whatever time period or location her creative mind chooses. As a result the reader will not only be gifted with a sensual and romantic story, but they will also be given a small lesson in history.

    This is one historical I have no problem recommending and doing so highly. If you're only going to read a select few authors in the historical romance genre...you would do well to add Ms. Henley.

    Official Reviewer for [...]

  • Catherine Seton Spencer works as a dress designer in the court of Queen Elizabeth. She is known by her friends as impulsive, which she agrees as she only wants a little fun and excitement and a lot of love in her life.

    Scottish Lord Patrick Hepburn spent four months patrolling the Middle March of the Borderlands, but completed his assignment. When he informs King James that his second sight reveals his monarch will succeed Elizabeth, the elated regal sends him to his future court as his emissary to Her Royal Highness. At court he and Catherine meet with terrible first impressions. He thinks she is spoiled while she concludes he is pompous. However, they end up working together trying to prevent a conspiracy to dethrone Elizabeth and prevent James from following her; that teaming leads to better understanding of the other and soon love.

    Few writers can bring together a spicy romance within a commanding period piece as the great Virginia Henley consistently does. What makes Ms. Henley so remarkable is she accomplishes this reliable quality while constantly changing eras. Her latest triumph stars two fabulous protagonists falling in love though seemingly opposites in attitude. Adding a touch of the paranormal to the mix, historical readers receive a wonderful Elizabethan Era love story that brings the intrigue of the age to full life.
