[quote=""MLE (Emily Cotton)""]I had the same thought LCW, and unfortunately, I can't say that I persevered. might have gone further if it had been on the kindle-- the Historian is a doorstopper of a book, it must weight 2 lbs.[/quote] It's size is the reason I picked it. I was tired of seeing this b...

After finishing A King's Ransom I started on The Historian. I've had the book for years but haven't gotten around to it. I'm about 40 pages in and if it doesn't get better in 20 or so pages I'm giving up. A story about people researching a fascinating topic isn't doing it for me as much as a story a...

I watched the first episode and wasn't impressed. I'm giving it one more and then giving up. My bf's comment that they threw everything they could think of in the first episode to hook as wide a variety of people as possible seems accurate.

My cats are too big to fit them and a book so they sandwich me one on either side. And it is a big book. I'm so used to my kindle but somehow I'll manage :p :D

I'm so excited! My Vine copy just arrived today. I know what I'll be doing tonight and into the wee hours of the morning. :)

Does anyone know if there is another book planned to follow Devil's Brood? For some reason I'm thinking there is. Please tell me I'm right!

Of that top 100 list I have two on my Kindle already. Across A Moonlit Sea and Far Horizons. About a month ago I started reading the first and it was just OK about 1/4 of the way through. Then vacation and the holidays happened and I haven't gotten back to it. I just received a hard copy of The Shoe...

Historical Romance Recommendations

I'm in the mood for a good HR. Does anyone have any recommendations on good ones they've read lately? My favorite hands down is Silken Threads which I read years ago on the advice of EC. It's still the best I've read. I also love her earlier more romantic work. I've also liked everything by Lisa Kle...

List of EC's books?

Is there a list somewhere that lists all her books in chronological order? And that tells which books with different titles are the same? I have a feeling there are some I still have to read. I get confused with the different titles for those released in the UK vs the US. I've bought double copies o...

[quote=""boswellbaxter""]It just came out, so perhaps you read one of the earlier volumes if you read it a few months ago.[/quote]

I got it from the Vine Newsletter in June or July. I can't remember exactly but I reviewed it in July. It was definitely the last book in the series.
