Enjoyed *Queen of the May*, the second book of "The Mandeville Trilogy" by Denée Cody more than the first book because: {1} Alexander and Giselle's story was more enjoyable; {2} had more action and adventure scenes; {3} included Stephan and Julianna; and {4} had interesting supporting characters. This book, however, had some of the same drawbacks as the first book: {1} lack of deep emotional connection to characters; {2} reduced medieval feeling to book; and {3} lack of sensuality.

Would readily recommend *Queen of the May* as an enjoyable read. Would also recommend that the first book of the series, 'The Court of Love', be read beforehand. Having read the first book understood {1} what all the whistling was about; {2} why Julianna was so comfortable and supportive of Giselle and her relationship with Alexander; and {3} why Stephan warned Alexander away from making Giselle his mistress.

Book description
She lives among the outlaws of Sherwood Forest, a beauty as ethereal and fathomless as the Wildwood itself. Yet not even her faithful friends Robyn and Marian can shield Giselle from the harsh laws of King John, or the secret enemy determined to take her life.

One of the late King Richard's most trusted companions, Alexander de Mandeville has left the court of the corrupt King John, to claim the lordship of Wolfhurst. But the barony bequeathed to him is near ruin. Its lush forests are inhabited by bandits - and the ravishing Giselle, who lures him into her lawless world, where desire is their only common ground, and where danger haunts their every embrace...
