Image of Being Elizabeth (Ravenscar Series)

Fans will be thrilled by the third Ravenscar book, a modern, corporate version of Tudor England. Many of the characters' names will tease your memory of English history, while the story stays firmly in present day. Bradford
is the master of grand, sweeping
family sagas.

Mary Turner has finally died, and Deravenel's has passed to Elizabeth, the outcast daughter. The transition is not without difficulty, however, since Mary has almost gutted the conglomerate to funnel support to her Spanish husband, Philip Alvarez. Also, the board of directors is not at all sure they want to line up behind a woman who is only 25, although her father Henry's will is ironclad.

Fortunately, Elizabeth has loyal cohorts in her corner, most especially her childhood best friend, Robert Dunley, who has grown up to be a devastatingly handsome man. As they wend their way through the thickets of corporate deal-making, they must also come to grips with their true feelings for each other. (St. Martin's, Sep., 675 pp., $27.95)
