Powdered wigs BUT NO GUILLOTINES

I'm looking for English language historical romances set in France during the early to mid 18th century, that are not in any way involved with the French Revolution.

I want to read about 18th century France, but I want to read about the France of Louis XV and Madame de Pompadour. I do not want to read about the French Revolution. I do not want to read about revolutionaries or guillotines. The time period I am looking at is roughly 1710-1780. I want a story with a happy ending too-- no downers. ("Through a Glass Darkly" and "Perfume" need not apply. I would also prefer to avoid biographical novels.) Can you help me, MeFites?
