New book, 322 pages. This book reveals the truth about what goes on behind the closed door of a queen's boudoir. Sex with the Queen explores the scintillating sexual lives of some of our most beloved and infamous female rulers. Anne Boleyn flirted with courtiers; Catherine Howard slept with one, 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 Swedish count Axel Ferson, who tried valiantly to rescue her from the guillotine. When a queen became sick to death of her husband and took a lover, anything could happen - from discrace and death to political victory. At European courts, it was the politics - not the sex - that caused a royal woman's tragedy - or her ultimate triumph.
