Spray on your favorite scent and get ready to be romanced, because today we're talking courtesans. It's a tough job, choosing the hottest courtesans, but someone has to do it. And that someone is Historical Hotties, with special guest Rose Rankin, discussing Cora Pearl vs Veronica Franco vs Phryne of Thebes!

If you're interested to learn more about Veronica Franco, look for Rose's upcoming piece about her on Narratively. She also has book reviews coming out with Washington Independent Review of Books and BookBrowse that cover titles in the genres of history and current events.

She writes regularly on all things Blackhawks for Faxes From Uncle Dale, if you're into that type of thing. You can follow her on Twitter @rose_rankin
