In royal courts bristling with testosterone—swashbuckling generals, polished courtiers, and virile cardinals—how did repressed regal ladies find happiness?

  • Anne Boleyn flirted with courtiers; Catherine Howard slept with one. Henry VIII had both of them beheaded.
  • Catherine the Great had her idiot husband murdered and ruled the Russian empire with a long list of sexy young favorites.
  • Marie Antoinette fell in love with the handsome Swedish count Axel Fersen, who tried valiantly to rescue her from the guillotine.
  • Princess Diana gave up her palace bodyguard to enjoy countless love affairs, which tragically led to her early death.

In this impeccably researched, scandalously readable follow-up to her New York Times bestseller Sex with Kings, Eleanor Herman reveals the truth about what has historically gone on behind the closed door of the queen's boudoir.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seductively Informative At first I was scandalized by the title/picture when I found this at my library. However, this is not some trash 50 shades book. Eleanor Herman has managed a fast paced, completely fact based account of a woman's favourite literature: snooping around into other people's love lives. I also learned lots about history, in particular the role of Catherine the Great and her influence on the outcome of Russia's economy. The book isn't some cheap, explicit tale, but does detail some anecdotes that have been passed on in the secret diaries and journals of monarchs.
