(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 1000 REVIEWER)   
Those who read this book, expecting some good, historical fiction will be sorely disappointed. Historical fiction this book is not, as it contains but a smattering of fact, embellished with a good deal of fiction and quite a bit of romance. This is really a historical romance and would probably meet with more favor were the author to stop dancing around the reality of what her book is. Calling it historical entertainment just does not cut it, as those expecting historical fiction will be disappointed and those who love historical romance will not even know about the book.

Once I got over the issue that the use of facts was thin and fiction and romance predominated, I was able to find the book mildly entertaining, just not my cup of tea. The book details Josephine's rise to fame and fortune, her romantic encounters along the way, and her relationship with Napoleon, painted here as a total nut job with Josephine as his bird of paradise. This is a book that only those who greatly enjoy the historical romance genre would love, as it is short on history and long on romance.
