Mini-Review: Royal Harlot
Royal Harlot by Susan Holloway Scott is not the type of book I usually read. To my recollection, it is one of maybe two historical romance novels that I have read. That being said, I enjoyed the book quite a bit. It seemed well-researched and the characters were realistic enough for the History teacher in me. There was plenty of sex (always a plus) and the story moved quickly along. I wasn't expecting an intense plot and there wasn't one, since there rarely is an intense plot to real life people, but the lives of Charles II and his consorts were interesting enough. If you enjoy your History mixed with plenty of heaving, bodice-bursting breasts then this is the book for you.
