from the inside flap:
A richly romantic novel of the three legendary mistresses who basked in the light of the Sun King.

Passionate, enlightened, and eternally restless, Louis XIV reigned at the dawn of a golden age in France. In 1660 he triumphantly brought the Infanta Maria Theresa home to a cheering populace in Paris, but it was not the young Spanish bride who inflamed his desires. It was the other young women of the court to whom he turned, and three women in particular whose lives became inextricably intertwined with his.
