Like to read about bed-hopping married people that draw public attention. No, I do not mean Hollywood and world-known singers; I mean the royalty of the world. Read morePublished 13 months ago by amazon addict
I enjoy this type of book. A bit of history, a bot of trivia. This one keeps my interest and is well written. It gives me just enough information. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Sandra Martin
More like gossiping with a friend than reading historical nonfiction, Carroll does it again with this book. I've read almost all her work and am never disappointed.Published 16 months ago by Kaylan Brett
