Katherine Spencer is one note and unlikable
Maybe it's just me, but I like it when the protagonist has a little more substance and is a little flawed. Katherine Spencer's only flaw is that she's "wickedly impulsive" (eyeroll...) Her physical perfection, miniscule lady like appetite, and perfect taste in clothes is constantly brought up by both the other characters and the author to the point of annoyance. She was very one dimensional and I really didn't care what happen to her one way or another. The antagonist, Patrick Stewart was equally disinteresting to me.
There are some plot twist that had some definite potential but since the characters where so predictable and boring at that point, not even that helped much.
Also no epilogue, which I feel ties up romances quite nicely. This story just kind of ends flatly.
I will say that I enjoyed that it was set in Tudor England (early 17th century) I just left wanting.
3 stars is probably a little generous.

Couldn't get enough
What made the experience of listening to Insatiable the most enjoyable?
This book was a great trip through Elizabethan England/Scotland.It begins approximately 2 years before the death of Queen Elizabeth 1.
The heroine Catherine (Cat) a Lady in waiting and dress designer to the Queen, and the hero - Patrick Hepburn son the exiled Scottish Earl of Bothwell ( who historically was a huge supporter of Mary Queen of Scots, King James' mother) They meet and initially hate each other , well, Catherine hates Hepburn. Hepburn is intrigued by the beautiful and vain Cat, but he doesn't go "ga ga" over her like everyone in the Queen's court.But Catherine can't help being draw to the 6 1/2 foot "Scots Barbarian" The story is long but it moves beautifully.
I love the descriptions of the fashions and fabrics of the period, the landscapes, the food.
It would make a great Movie!
I love books you could see being made into a movie or mini series ( but only by the BBC)
What did you like best about this story?
The historical/political intrigue, the characters and the dialogue
What about Jill Tanner’s performance did you like?
I love the narrator, her voices, accents, and tone is fantastic.My favourite of all her characterizations is King James and Maggie ( Catherine's maid and surrogate mother)
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The death of a secondary character in the middle of the book, she had an impact on everyone.
Any additional comments?
I purchased this book on a BOGO special, and it's the best deal EVER. It is worth the credit on its own.Enjoy!
