The Man in the Iron Mask Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


There are lots of secretive meetings, references to mistresses, and one spectacular case of busting in on a woman getting dressed. That's about as graphic as it gets, however, and it's just one of the many ways The Man in the Iron Mask is different from its predecessor The Three Musketeers. In that earlier novel, D'Artagnan had numerous sexual escapades.
