I love books! I also write them. FYI: I use this space for recs of books I wholeheartedly love only. My recs are honest, but I have social relationships with some of the romance authors whose books I rec. 

The Trial of Queen Caroline: The Scandalous Affair that Nearly Ended a Monarchy - Jane Robins A great resource on Queen Caroline's adultery trial in 1820, with loads of detail and an excellent bibliography. I had no idea the trial was such a big deal, or that it seemed so plausible to contemporaries that it might lead a revolution in England. The writing got a bit purple in places (especially towards the beginning) and the author had a strong bias in favor of Queen Caroline, but on balance those are minor flaws. I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in the politics of the era.
