Chateau of Desire by Monica Bentley Book Review

Book Description (via Goodreads): France, 1355 The Count of Brionde continues his endless game of cat and mouse with the French king, Jean le Bon. In the forests surrounding the chateau, however, lurks the armed band of legendary condotierre learner Bertrand du Guesclin. Inside the chateau, the Guard practice daily, preparing for the inevitable attack. The youngest member, Louis – ward to the master of the Guard – dreams of becoming a true warrior. He also dreams of the kitchen scamp Phoebe, who grows more beautiful with each passing day. Young love’s first blush finds these two resourceful orphans relying on each other when no one else trusts their lowly position. When the fateful battle finally arrives, choosing whom to trust means life or death.

I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. I have given Chateau of Desire by Monica Bentley two out of five stars ⭐️⭐️

This book is for mature readers only.

Trigger warnings: sexual abuse and violence

Very sexy. I did not expect an erotica, fantasy novel to reveal itself through the pages of Chateau of Desire, but I really enjoyed trying out a new genre for a change. I’ve only read mild erotica before, so this was a completely different ball game.

I thought Bentley’s writing throughout the book was well-written and I liked the era of which this historical fiction book was based upon. Also, I liked the magical, fantasy parts that took place in the story too.

I found it quite difficult to follow the story of Chateau of Desire and kept getting confused between characters, so I may have to read it again at a later point in the year. Also, I thought there were quite a few parts of the plot which were unexplained, which made it difficult for me to follow.

I would happily read the other stories in the Chateau of Love trilogy!

I would recommend this book for readers who enjoy erotica, fantasy and historical fiction stories.
