The delightful Barbara Vey, who writes a very popular blog on the Publishers Weekly website, emailed me today to inform me that NOTORIOUS ROYAL MARRIAGES has a capsule review -- by a male, yet! -- on her blog today!
It turned my rainy day sunny!

. . . Notorious Royal Marriages by Leslie Carroll
Read by Michael
"Happily Ever After" doesn't always occur in real life romances, and especially not when the marriage involves royalty. In this book, Leslie Carroll tells us a little bit about some of the more famous royal marriages, starting with Eleanor of Aquitaine and ending with Prince Charles. The author has the ability to make dry old history become interesting and fun to read. The writing is quick and clever, without over embellishment of the facts. I’m a big fan of history and of historical fiction, and felt I learned a lot by reading this book. I will be perusing her previous non-fiction book, Royal Affairs: A Lusty Romp Through the Extramarital Adventures That Rocked the British Monarchy.
Thank you, Barbara and Michael!
