Rate this:
Although it was illegal, secret, and against the express commands of his famously mad father, King George IV of England married twice -- once for duty and once for love. While Caroline of Brunswick eventually became his lawful queen, it was the beautiful Maria Fitzherbert, recognized as his wife by the Catholic Church but not by the laws of England, who claimed his heart. In the hands of author Diane Haeger, their relationship becomes a mesmerizing love story, filled with intrigue and passion. The characters and drawing rooms of early 19th-century England come alive to create a portrait of the age that is colorful and resonant with historical detail.

Interesting book. I had no idea about this historical 'scandal'. The novel is fairly well written and a good book for summer reading.
