SPOTLIGHT: Milady by Laura L. Sullivan

Hello wonderful reader friends! I don’t know where you’re reading from today but it is a scorcher over here – temperatures over 100F! Never have I been more thankful for air conditioning and a good book! Speaking of which, I wanted to spotlight Milady by Laura L. Sullivan today!

What’s Milady All About? (Thanks to the Publisher Berkely for providing summary!)

I’ve gone by many names, though you most likely know me as Milady de Winter: Villainess. Seductress. A secondary player in someone else’s tale.

It’s finally time I tell my own story. The truth isn’t tidy or convenient, but it’s certainly more interesting.

Before you cast judgment, let me start at the beginning, and you shall learn how an innocent girl from the countryside became the most feared woman in all of Europe.

Because we all know history was written by men, and they so often get things wrong.

You might also want to know just a little bit about the author — Laura L. Sullivan – and again, thanks to the Publisher for providing the information!

Laura L. Sullivan is the author of five books for middle grade and young adult audiences. This is her adult debut. She lives in Florida with her son.


Who should check out Milady by Laura L. Sullivan?

Based upon what I have read of Milady so far, I would say you’d be at an advantage going into this book if you’ve already read Alexandre Dumas’ The Three Musketeers. That’s because the main character in this book is actually the villain in The Three MusketeersMilady features a very strong woman as a main character who moves about in a way that she uses society to work for her. There’s machinations and politics and double crossing. If historical fiction with some swash buckling and a different perspective of a villain is your thing, you’ll be so pleased with this book!

Milady is out in stores and libraries now!

  1. I don’t know… the cover puts me off this, for some reason. Too vibrant, too… modern. I’m not sure. And the premise… well… hm…
