Jealous ruthless and sexually insatiable is spurned by Königsmarck when he re appears in the life of Sophia Dorothea In revenge she plans his ruin and that of the sad princess he so recklessly lov. I am not well versed in the Georgian period so I thought I'd tackle it and enjoy myself by reading Plaidy's series I went in ignorant so I really cannot day how accurate her version is but it was a great read

The Princess of Celle Georgian Saga #1True love never ran smoothly for the beautiful Sophia Dorothea darling of Celle who first lost her heart to Philip Königsmarck on her seventh birthdayAt sixteen a pawn in seventeenth century Germa. In the middle of this novel is a fairy tale gone horribly wrong where the princess Princess Sophia Dorothea kisses a frog George Louis of Hanover and he stays a frog Brought up in the lap of luxury and love the sheltered child of a German Count and his French born wife she proves to be an only child and the heiress of uite the fortune Because of this she is caught up in the dynastic machinations of those who do not value her for her sweetness innocence and beautyThere are plenty of unsavory characters in this story as foils to Sophia's goodness They are painted in some complexity by Plaidy as are her minor characters such as Eleonore von Knesebeck Sophia's lady in waiting The dashing hero in the story the Swedish Count Philip Konigsmarck has his share of flaws Plaidy describes a whir of a world where aristocrats dance play cards gamble and have mistresses And small minded people indulge in intrigue When the intrigue gets serious it threatens to pull Sophia's world away from herThere is a lot going on in this historical novel and it was powerful to me because I knew nothing of this Sophia Dorothea of Celle George Louis of Hanover later George I of England much less all of the Counts and Electors in Germany at that time A tragic bit of history done very well by the Mistress
