Royal Harlot by Susan Holloway Scott

For me personally, what makes a historical fiction book fantastic is one that tells me so much about the period that is it written in, that I want to get straight onto Google and search for more information. Susan Holloway Scott truly brought these historical figures to life and left me wanting more. As with any good author she explains in her notes at the back of the book why she wrote the story the way she did and why she portrayed Barbara the way she did.

I have to say that this is a very raunchy novel, so if you don't like reading about sexual exploits then this book is not for you. However, I thoroughly enjoyed it and whilst it was raunchy I learned a lot about this period of history that I didn't know.
