Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's is a scholar who throughtly researches everything for
her novels. Just take a look at her acknowledgement lists. Her research is
one of the reasons I strongly recommend her books.

While I also loved Blood Games, Blood Roses during the time of the Medicis
is marvalous!

 The best one in the series, in my estimation, is the one set in Nero's

 history come alive.  Her books are very readable, and have kept me up into
