Read full description of the books Angelique and the King:At the end of book one, Angélique used a little blackmail to improve her lot in life and get herself a husband who can get her in the front door at Versailles. But.... there's a wee bit of a problem since husband #2 (who shall rename nameless so as not to spoil) wants nothing to do with his wife and he goes to great efforts to keep her shut up in Paris. Don't you worry, our intrepid heroine won't let a little thing like a mean-ass husband keep her away from Court and Louis XIV. No indeedy. And once she gets there, her beauteous charm and intelligence catches the King's eye, but there's this little problem of his other mistresses, one in particular who isn't about to give up without a fight - and a very nasty fight that turns out to be. Plus there's that hated husband still to be dealt with…
I did like this, but the storyline went in directions I was not excepting, particularly that of husband #2. I suspect some of the more PC minded readers will send the book flying so don't say I didn't warn you. There's quite a big surprise at the ending, a surprise that turns Angélique's life upside down and on to new adventures, so I'd advise you have book three, Angélique in Barbary on hand and ready to start.
