The Summer Queen - Elizabeth Chadwick

I had just started thinking, "Wonderful! Everyone's off on crusade and I won't have to read any more sex scenes" - when that happened. Ugh. Call me a prude, but reading about teenage Eleanor and Louis was bad enough....then there was teenage (or was she only 12) Petronella and her grandpa-aged lover. I was actually glad that Louis had vowed to stay away from Eleanor's bed, but apparently it takes more than that to keep this from being a constant theme in this book.
