Lady Robyn

By

This is the second book about Robyn Stafford, formerly of Hollywood, California, who is “currently” living in 1460 England. In the previous book, Knight Errant, witchcraft caused Robyn to travel through time, and witchcraft continues its prominence in this book, with both white and no-so-white witchcraft playing major roles. Robyn herself is pert, has a taste for fine living, but also has a social conscience. At times, Robin is able to indulge her penchant for the good life, being the mistress of the young, virile, and very tender Edward, Earl of March. However, this role seems to throw her into very uncomfortable, if not to say deadly, situations almost as frequently. This book begins slowly, as things are going well for Robyn and as her relationship with Edward thrives. However, once this situation changes, as Duke Richard of York arrives to challenge King Henry’s throne, the pace picks up. Robyn, as a traveler from our time, highlights the culture shock involved in finding oneself in the midst of the War of the Roses. Some of Robyn’s 21st century conveniences seem to be accepted a bit too easily, but this is a minor quibble about an entertaining trip through time.
