Book Review: An Embarrassment of Riches

An Embarrassment of Riches by Chelsea Quinn Yarbo

This tale of the Count Saint-Germain sees the Count in Bohemia in the Thirteenth century. He is pressed into service at the court of Otakar II, to provide jewels for his wife Kunigunde. Everybody watches everybody else at court and the Count becomes the object of fascination for a number of Ladies In Waiting. The court is a dangerous place and this fascination makes it even more so for the Count. This is a good addition to the series although Yarbro’s purple prose during the Count’s seduction scenes can be ridiculous.
