I would argue the first in the series, Chains, is by far the best and absolutely worth reading even if you don't want to invest in a series. The American Revolutionary War was a fight for independence, but it didn't mean independence for everyone. The story follows Isabel and Curzon as they seek their freedom despite the continued lies and promises from the British and Americans. Theirs is the forgotten and ignored story of slaves during the war.

A history lesson is important for everyone right now. I'd also recommend watching or listening to any PBS special or podcast you can find from Henry Louis Gates Jr. He's a fantastic scholar.

Much like The Duchess The Way to Dusty Death is now available on Wattpad as a serial.
Macbeth meets the Wild West - The revolution was supposed to put an end to tyrants, but it only made more of them. The once revered General Druas had taken the role of president when Duncan died under mysterious circumstances. With magic to influence the minds of his citizens, he begins his reign of terror to drive out and kill all other mages. Least one of them fulfills the prophecy that spells his own doom. But fate will find him in the form of the outlaw simply known as The Girl. Cursed from childhood the outlaw moves through the world forgotten almost immediately by anyone who meets her. With two revolvers at her side she sets off across the land to bring Druas's doom to him.

I discovered Jean Plaidy by accident. I saw a book about Elizabeth I at Barnes and Noble, bought it, then suddenly I was reading nothing but. She has eight pseudonyms depending on the genre (real name Eleanor Hibbert), though I am mostly versed in the Jean Plaidy one. I have read her Victoria books, Borgias, and I am getting ready to start on the Catherine de Medici trilogy, but it is with the Tudors that her work shines the best. The Victoria books can be a bit like wading through mud, but her shorter Tudor books (The Lady in the Tower and The Rose without the Thorn especially) are her best in my opinion. They paint sympathetic portraits of Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard that I had not really seen prior. But the woman wrote more than 200 books, if the Tudors aren't your jam, she wrote about the Plantagenets (The Courts of Love is excellent), the French Revolution, the Norman Conquest, gothic romance, and so on and so on.
