    A ride of emotions

    This book was amazing. I got so involved with Henri and Diane. I actually was heartbroken, when Diane was. The story is wonderful and the details are spot on. This is a book you will read and read again. I could not put it down.

    A courtesan is not necessarily a whore

    Diane de Poitiers is frequently portrayed in history books as a loose woman, but here, she is depicted as the long-time love of the King of France. Much interesting side business on her dealings with her children from her earlier marriage and the intricacies of life at court, with many women scheming to take her place in the king's heart and a queen who must be dealt with. A most interesting book.

    Romance, Politics and History!

    This is one of the all time great love stories. This was the most moving book that I have read in a long time. I laughed, longed and cried! Catherine de Medici never had a chance. This story has everything romance, politics and history. Great book that I couldn't put down!

    For fans of historical fiction

    I enjoyed reading Courtesan by Diane Haeger. I was more familiar with what was going on in England at the time, and of course this book intertwined with that knowledge. I found the personal dynamics very interesting, and the court politics were depicted well. I will read more by this author.
