I was looking for a thread for LOVE IS BLIND . I just did a re-read and I really love that book. It really is one of my favorites.

I think I need to re-read the historicals. I have trouble remembering them other than to know I liked them immensely. Oh, well, I don't have enough on my TBR pile right? HA!

Hi, it's been a while since my last visit :)
I'm almost through all Lynsay's historicals - I'm reading The Perfect Wife at the moment and I haven't read The Reluctant Reformer yet, but I'm positively sure my favourite is The Key. The dirty Scots, they were so medieval :lol: it was refreshing since in almost every other medieval historical every one is so clean it's annoying, because bathing really wasn't that popular back then.
I am not entirely sure how it looked like in England and in Scotland, but I've recently read a couple of books about every-day life in the 16th to 19th century Poland (I am preparing to write a short historical romance set in Poland ;) it's a shame we in fact don't have our own romance books, only those translated from English :( ) and the hygiene started to actually develop only at the end of the 18th century and I believe in medieval times it was only worse :P

But from Lynsay's historicals I love The Switch, too. It's so hilarious when Radcliffe starts to lust after Charlie as Charles, then after Charlie as Elizabeth and he is so confused :D My sister liked it too. We couldn't decide if it was instinct that told Radcliffe whether Charlie is Charles or Elizabeth at the moment, or if it were pheromones :lol:

I have to laugh, the cover of 'The Perfect Wife' has absolutely NOTHING to do with what the story is about! :D
Aside from the difference in the 'wifes' built I'm sure that style of dress didn't come along until several centuries later :oops:

Funny isn't it Mabel? I think the cover designers should have to read some of the book before they design the cover!

Thinking of our Argeneaus, I think those of us who KNOW the charters and have shared experiences with them.should get to pick the next cover. They could post 8 or 10 possible guys and let us vote. Can't you see us trying to chose Bricker, Christian or the Notte twins :shock:

Good idea. Perhaps we'll try and work it into the newsletter..
