The Boleyn Deceit by Laura Anderson

The Boleyn Trilogy continues with The Boleyn Deceit. William is now King of England in his own right. After declaring his love for Minuette, he keeps her by his side. This attracts attention from the English courtiers who believe Minuette is undeserving of the Crown, as well as the French, who believe Will will break his engagement with their young Princess. To shield Minuette and himself, Will allows Minuette to go to France with Elizabeth and Dom. Danger swirls in France and unrest swirls in England. The Boleyn King must prove himself in this thrilling second installment.

I loved the first book, and this one kept pace with the first. William is grown, and is becoming more of a king with each day. At times, he is selfless, sacrificing for his kingdom. But as Henry and Anne's son, he is rash, selfish and stubborn. Elizabeth develops more in the second book. Her quasi-romance with Robert becomes her signature. I can't wait to see what Anderson does with Elizabeth. I think I have an idea, but I am excited to see what happens. Minuette is still softhearted and unwilling to hurt her true friends. Dom becomes even more tortured. All together, this book was wonderful. The Boleyn Reckoning will be a must read book in 2014.
Thank you to the publisher, the author and Netgalley for the review copy.
