    At nine, Maud, an English princess, was sent to Germany to become the bride of the Holy Roman Emperor - a political alliance with a man her father’s age. At 25, the widowed Maud must marry once again, this time to 14-year-old Geoffrey Plantagenet. But it is with Stephen of Blois, Maud’s fiercest rival for the British throne, that the headstrong princess discovers the true meaning of desire.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I could not finish it. I felt the reading was entirely too over-dramatic. Very actor-y. I was so distracted by the reader that I could not enjoy the story.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Having read about Matilda (Maud) and Stephen before, I was interested to hear another take on their story. I'm a bit skeptical about the romance plotline, but, who knows?


    How could the performance have been better?

    See above - WAY too emotive.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Doubtful.


    Any additional comments?

    Too bad. Maybe I'll try again with a print version?

    "Aquitaine is mine. It will never belong to anyone else."

    With these words, 15-year-old Eleanor seals her fate. Aquitaine is under the French king’s safekeeping, and Eleanor, the Duke of Aquitaine’s eldest daughter, knows she must wed Prince Louis in order to insure the future of her beloved duchy. Fiercely independent, filled with untapped desire, the woman who would be queen must provide Louis VII, her monkish husband, with heirs. But it is young Henry of Anjou who catches Eleanor’s eye - and sets fire to her heart.

    Christine says: "Good story but terrible narrator"
    "Narrator is 'ORRIBLE!"

    If you could sum up Beloved Enemy in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, narrator extremely over dramatic.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Entertaining novel. True Eleanor fans might or might not appreciate the inclusion of all the medieval gossip and conspiracy theories.
