Amy and Robin were May's winners of The Raucous Royals giveaway. The giveaway this month was Mistress of the Sun by Sandra Gulland. Read the review here
I have emailed the winners and just need your mailing address.
Next month's Raucous Royals book of the month is an advance copy of: Sideshow, Ten Original Tales of Freaks, Illusionists and Other Matters Odd and Magical edited by Deborah Noyes. It's a little outside of the usual royalty history reading, but how can a book staring three-headed rats, bearded ladies and mummies not be utterly fascinating? In honor of this book, I have been digging through my notes to find all the strange things royals have collected over the years and also some of the soothsayers and seers that prophesied history.
In July, The Raucous Royals book of the month will be Susan Scott Holloway's new novel, The French Mistress starring the enigmatic Louise de Keroualle. You can pre-order a copy now. Ms. Holloway will also stop by to answer a few question on one of my favorite monarchs, Charles II, and dish about his many mistresses.
