"It is a quick and informative read and does not read like a history book. It is the true account of the various mistresses and courtiers, and it reads like a gossip magazine. Readers will be highly entertained and interested."

From the dawn of time, power has been a might aphrodisiac. The royal mistress, having conquered a king, ofter ran his kingdom, weiling her sexuality as a scepter. Sex With Kings is trailblazing in its exploration of this intriguing phenomenon-the position of royal mistress at European Courts, the fascinating women who filled it, and how their responsibilities and rewards changed over the centuries. It's a nonfiction journey through 500 years that takes the reader into the throne rooms and bedrooms of Europe's most powerful kings, and a chapter of women's history which has remained unwritten - until now.
