Royal Affairs is an eminently readable, lusciously lascivious smorgasbord of the lewd, bizarre, and sometimes illegal sexual behavior of past and present members of royalty.
Leslie Carroll utilizes meticulous research to titillate and excite readers, never stooping to resort to the infamous apocryphal stories that have been repeated so often they have become accepted as truth. In fact, upon reading Royal Affairs readers will know that no fictitious peccadilloes can compare to the actual audacious and sometimes perverse behavior of those “born with the right to rule.”
Carroll dishes the details, from the most recent, the beloved Princess Diana, Rottweiler Camilla and cad Prince Charles to the actual facts (despite what is portrayed in the sumptuous series The Tudors) of the lusty wench Anne Boleyn, who remained just out of arms reach from the very buff and sexy (think Prince Harry) Hal, Henry VIII, until he married her.
With great attention to detail and deft descriptions of the surroundings, Carroll transports readers to the boudoirs and other places of assignation to provide a voyeuristic thrill that not even the best of today’s erotica can top.
If you like your history with several touches of spice, Royal Affairs is for you.
