Betrayal of the Blood Lily
I've mentioned these books by Lauren Willig on the Reference Staff blog before. The sixth book in the series has just come out and they continue to be a hoot. After working on a PhD in history at Harvard and graduating from Harvard Law School, this overachieving romance genre fan set about to write an historically accurate romance novel. With the success of her series, Lauren Willig has given up her career in law and is now a full-time writer. If you're looking for light, entertaining reading with a good dose of humor and a little history lesson, these books are for you. All you have to do is get past the goofy covers :-).
