His Majesty, Prince of Toads

This historical novel is temporarily free from Amazon.com, and I enjoyed reading it.
The characters are well-drawn, the story kept surprising me, and I found the book medium hard to put down.
I did feel that the final resolution was overly rushed, and I would have liked to learn more about what happened to the couple after they settled their differences.
Overall I'd recommend this novel for its humor, its strong heroine, and a good storyline.
If the historical facts are correct, I'm even more impressed. I learned quite a bit about marital finances and pertinent legal issues, but it didn't feel pedantic or preachy.
I would recommend this book to a friend, definitely!
