2011 NF Release: ROYAL PAINS by Leslie Carroll

Woo Hoo....was I excited to come acrthis badboy this morning.  The new NF book by Leslie Carroll, author of Notorius Royal Marriages and Royal Affairs, is ROYAL PAINS: A Rogues’ Gallery of Brats, Brutes, and Bad Seeds and will be released on March 1, 2011.

SYNOPSIS:  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.
