New Book Alert - Royal Pains by Leslie Carroll

Royal Pains: A Rogues' Gallery of Brats, Brutes, and Bad Seeds by Leslie Carroll
Paperback, 416 pages
NAL Trade
March 1, 2011

"The author of Notorious Royal Marriages presents some of history's boldest, baddest, and bawdiest royals.
The bad seeds on the family trees of the most powerful royal houses of Europe often became the most rotten of apples: über-violent autocrats Vlad the Impaler and Ivan the Terrible literally reigned in blood. Lettice Knollys strove to mimic the appearance of her cousin Elizabeth I and even stole her man. And Pauline Bonaparte scandalized her brother Napoleon by having a golden goblet fashioned in the shape of her breast.

Chock-full of shocking scenes, titillating tales, and wildly wicked nobles, Royal Pains is a rollicking compendium of the most infamous, capricious, and insatiable bluebloods of Europe."
My review will be upcoming, but I will give you a hint...quite the joyful romp! It is on sale today.

  1. Oh, wow! I have to confess that I'm a sucker for royal scandals. Royals in the past were just so bad and fun.) I can't wait for your review!

  2. Irena- I am too! This book has a great selection to choose from as well - some that I had never heard of before.
