Realtime Pricing: Amzn: £3.52
“Every once in a great while, there are books I love to the point of wanting everybody I know to go out and buy a copy.Libertine’s Kiss is one of those rare books. This angsty historical is heartrendingly beautiful, featuring a fantastic setting with a smart heroine and a deeply tortured, flawed hero. Judith James juggles poetry, Restoration court culture, and fairytale references with an almost perfect sense of timing, and the result is a world that springs vividly to life. Rather than simplifying the historical details of the day, the author weaves their many threads into her story, letting readers see her world in its many layers of light and dark just as her characters would have. The result is a story that is sweeping and epic…I find myself wanting to compare it to something, but there is really nothing out there quite like this.” ~ Lynn Spenser All About Romance. Nominated as Best British Isles Historical by Romantic Times, Libertine’s Kiss, features a hero based on John Wilmot, the notorious libertine, poet, and friend of King Charles II.
