Another great book in the series with Harriet Main getting involved in the lives of the central characters. Plenty of historical facts interwoven into the plot, and I love young love. All of the characters are interesting and the villains are just as they should be-despicable.

Love Child, Philippa Carr (pseudonym of Mrs. Eleanor Hibbert, and other pseudonyms include Victoria Holt and Jean Plaidy), HB-B, @ 1978, 1987. Historical fiction set in Restoration England about Charles II and James. Okay.

This series is liberally doused with crazysauce and I love it.

One of my absolute favorites of this series. I have re-read it countless times. First discovered these books as a young teenager and instantly fell in love. The love I have of these books is completely related to the fact that these were my first grown up books I was actually allowed to read (my Grandma loaned them to me behind my folks' back - yeah Grandma!)

I am rereading these books, and they all fit together so I want to read them all. I like the suspense, intrigue and romance in these books, and getting to know a little more about England, too.

Another book I stole from my mom's library as a teen. Now out of print. This was my first romance/historical fiction book.

I didn't think I would like this book, but it was a lot more interesting than I thought it would be.

Ok. 1600s England. Post Bloody Mary. Romance. Plot not riveting.

Eleanor Alice Burford, Mrs. George Percival Hibbert was a British author of about 200 historical novels, most of them under the pen name Jean Plaidy which had sold 14 million copies by the time of her death.
