I'm hoping someone in this forum can help me out.  I remember reading a book many years ago that was sort of a cross between romance and historical fiction.  It was about a man, with some royal title, who was rather disfigured/ugly but  who was attractive to women in spite of his disfigurement.  Kind of a beauty and the beast scenario.

I want to say the authors last name begins with 'G' (but couldn't swear to it) and the book was part of a series.

I know it's not much to go on but would appreciate any help with refreshing my memory.

Thanks in advance.

Edited -- because I found the answer!  It's almost uncanny how this happens.  I'm thinking of a book and someone else must be having the same thoughts.  It was the Angelique series someone else posted about.  Boy!  That was too easy!  I really appreciate PBS and the wonderful people on the forums.

Well, it doesn't seem that we were any help, but I'm glad you found your book! I haven't read the Angelique book yet, but I've got a couple of them that I want to start soon.

Glad you figured it out too Gerri. But you say you have already read the series? What did you think of it?

I have the first book in the series here to read. It sounds like it is a good series.

I just finished the second book of the series--ANGELIQUE AND THE KING.  I had enjoyed the first book (ANGELIQUE) very much and when I started the second I wasn't so sure I would continue reading them.  However, after I got into it I loved it too and now I am starting to worry that I won't be able to finish the series because the last three have not been translated into English yet.  Guess I better start learning French because I am sure there will be loose ends after nine of the books!!    :-)

Actually, I've only read one...not even really sure which one because it was such a long time ago.  From what I gathered reading the thread that brought my memory back, the books in the series are difficult to find.  I suppose I should add them to my wish list.  :-)

And, this forum was a big help in finding the books so, thanks again for being there for me.  Thanks again!!
