The Hell-Fire Club: The Story of the Amorous Knights of Wycombe by Donald McCormick, 208 pages

I saw this book as a paperback in an used bookstore but didn't want to pay $10 for it, so I requested it as an inter-library loan. I knew a little about the Hell-Fire Club because of the torrid historical romances I read as a teenager, so I was interested in learning more. This was dry, boring and basically went with the premise that rumors of the wild debauchery of the Hell-Fire members were played up, and they were just some somewhat horny guys who got together to play and drink. The book was a major disappointment as I was hoping for some salacious history.
