The Scent of Roses by Barbara Cartland

The Scent Of Roses - Barbara Cartland

For someone used to historical romance with more of a sensual kick, these Barbara Cartland stories are rather virginal, but still good entertainment for those afternoons when you'd like to read, but nothing seems to whet your appetite.

The Scent of Roses is just one of such books. There's enough intrigue to keep you entertained, a romance with a severe case of rose-colored glasses attitude, and a few Russians, if you're into the newer rage about their mafia.

A little bit of something for everyone, with the requisite howling laughter at the description of "marital consummation" at the end. That gets me every time. ;)
