New book, 287 pages. Learn the scandalous truth about the illicit relationships of some of history’s most powerful men and the women who slept with them to get to the top. There was Madame de Pompadore, brainy but passionless mistress of Louis XV and her successor Madam duBarry...beautiful, stupid, but a whole lot more fun. Fascinating, and endlessly entertaining, Sex With Kings explores sex, power, money, rivalry and revenge. This non-fiction journey through 500 years takes the reader into the throne rooms and bedrooms of Europe’s most powerful kings. From the dawn of time, power has been a mighty aphrodisiac. The royal mistress, having conquered a king, often ran his kingdom, wielding her sexuality as sceptre. 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. This is a chapter of women’s history which has remained unwritten - until now.
