Afternoon Tea and Royal Gossip at The Dorset Inn

Please join me at the gorgeous, historic Dorset Inn in on Saturday, Feb. 6th at 3 p.m for an afternoon of Royal gossip from my newest book,

NOTORIOUS ROYAL MARRIAGES: A Juicy Journey Through Nine Centuries of Dynasty, Destiny and Desire.

From the press release: “Historian and Manhattan-based actress Leslie Carroll is on her way to becoming the go-to-girl when it comes to the real life love (and hate) stories, gossip, and scandals of famous royals.”

So, while The Dorset Inn will be dishing out Afternoon Tea, accompanied by a delectable selection of pastries and sweets prepared by Chef Thom, I'll be dishing about your favorite royals (in costume, no less!)

$15 per person, all inclusive
Please call the Dorset Inn at 802-867-5500 to reserve.

Reservations Required by Feb 2nd.

What could be more fun than a wintry afternoon by the fire together, savoring culinary delights from a top chef in one of the nation's most picturesque towns?

I do hope to see you there!

At long last ... NOTORIOUS ROYAL MARRIAGES releases today!

It's been a long gestation ... but finally, my 13th book is on the shelves today! I've been blogging about it for days already, with many more exciting guest posts and personal appearances to come . . .

You can visit me today at another of my homes away from home, the History Hoydens blog at , and all this week at the myriad events set up by the fantastic Octobloggers of the Historical Fiction Round Table. Scroll down to my previous post to see who and where they are.

Special thanks are due to my amazing husband Scott for being so kind and patient and understanding through the long hours of research and writing.

And here's a double-barrelled question for my readers: who is your favorite royal couple, and why?
