"Royal Mistress" by Anne Easter Smith was overall a decent read. The plot follows the life of Jane Lambert, the smart and attractive daughter of a silk merchant. It's obvious that Jane's father is closer and favors Jane's younger sister, Bella. So, when Jane's father finally finds her a match, she feels obligated to marry the very boring, older silk merchant, William Shore. Her marriage did not turn out the way that she had hoped. By chance, she meets the King and begins a long term affair as his mistress. Jane's life has its ups and downs. She finds herself in numerous relationships as a mistress to several men, to the dismay of her father. The history portion of this novel is well written and held my interest. Jane's life was a bit tedious to follow at times, and the ending was too predictable. Due to the history portrayed in the plot, I would recommend adding this novel to your "tbr" list.… (mais)

A brilliantly researched historical fiction that depicts King Richard III in a more balanced and believable light, this novel is a quick read considering its length. There were some scenes or subplots I would've liked to see developed a little more, but overall the work is a great choice for historical fiction fans. The author incorporates some original ideas here and, for the most part, if it's not convincing, it's plausible. The plot and characters would make a great tv miniseries. I look forward to reading her earlier novels now.

This was the story of Edward IV's final (and longest lasting) mistress, (Elizabeth) Jane Shore. Very historical and we meet characters such as Richard III, Edward IV, Marquis Thomas Grey, and Queen Elizabeth, amongst others. It ended very predictably, but all in all a great read! 512 pages
