New Giveaway: Notorious Royal Marriages by Leslie Carroll


As part of the Historical Fiction Round Table event we have going on this week, I've got 1 copy of Leslie Carroll's Notorious Royal Marriages to give to one lucky winner!!!

Giveaway is open to US residents ONLY and ends on January 22nd.

To enter please leave a comment with your email.  That's it!  Easy peasy! 

SYNOPSIS:  A funny, raucous, and delightfully dirty 900-year history of the royal marriages of Europe's most famous-and infamous-monarchs.

Since time immemorial, royal marriages have had little to do with love- and almost everything to do with diplomacy and dynasty. Clashing personalities have joined in unholy matrimony to form such infamous couples as Russia's Peter II and Catherine the Great, and France's Henri II and Catherine de Medici-all with the purpose of begetting a male heir. But with tensions high and silverware flying, kings like England's Henry II have fled to the beds of their nubile mistresses, while queens such as Eleanor of Aquitaine have plotted their revenge...

Full of the juicy gossip and bad behavior that characterized Royal Affairs, this book chronicles the love-hate marriages of the crowned heads of Europe-from the Angevins to Charles and Di-and ponders how dynasties ever survived at all.

GOOD LUCK ALL!!!
