In Dangerous Liaisons (Royal Command Book 1) by Sarah Stuart, Queen Margaret's Book of Hours was a secret journal written by the queen almost five hundred years ago and passed down to her female descendants through the generations. In the book, the queen recorded her most private memories and secrets, and left instructions for those who would inherit the book "to find love where they may". She did not want them to experience the type of marriage she had had after marrying out of obligation instead of love. This is how Lizzie Cameron came to possess the Book of Hours. Little by little, Lizzie deciphered the book and it became an important point of reference in her life. In her search for a more fulfilling life, Lizzie, heir to a wealthy estate, met and fell in love with Michael, an aspiring actor still doing odd jobs as he chased his dream. Their chance meeting set the beginning for a family story marred by fame, forbidden passion, and new family secrets all over again.
Dangerous Liaisons (Royal Command Book 1) by Sarah Stuart is a captivating novel depicting a family story that spans centuries, with each part of the story rich in detail, drama and intrigue. It is really impressive how the story navigates through hundreds of years ago to the present and back again without either part taking the focus away from the other. The two angles instead complement each other perfectly to bring to life a gripping and most intricate family drama. Love at first sight, fame, betrayal, forbidden passion and everything in between, this story has it all, and Sarah Stuart blended it flawlessly to produce a well-detailed and compelling read.
