Author Karleen Koen stops by...

Today I'm happy to welcome Karleen Koen, the New York Times bestselling author of Through a Glass Darkly, Now Face to Face, and Dark Angels, who's guest blogging here today.

Her latest book, Before Versailles focuses on four intense months of King Louis’s young life. It’s the summer of 1661, and after the death of his prime minister, twenty-two-year-old Louis steps into governing France. He’s still a young man, and in a way quite inexperienced and shy, but also very determined, intelligent and headstrong. He’s used to having anything and everything his heart desires—land, women—including his brother’s wife.
