Hi Everyone,

I got the book Sex With Kings by Eleanor Herman, after watching the Discovery Channel about Henry VIII.

Of course I was looking for some references to the Earl. I found two. One he is credited with and the other he is not, though I found the that same quote in a few other books about John Wilmot.

This is a good book and very interesting for anyone getting hooked on the restoration as I seem to be doing. And though it covers the 500 years, it still gives you insight into the past through the women of the times.

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.
