3 Shows, and a Book, that Depict the Sexy Side of History

in Fiction by

I like my historical shows like I like my men: sexy, a little scandalous and shirtless as often as possible. Luckily, television has not disappointed me lately with the historical sexiness. Everywhere you look these days men and women are heating up the small screens in their corsets and pantaloons — or lack thereof.

Not to mention that heartbreaking scene between Greer of…
