Misfit, so glad you are enjoying The Tiger's Woman. I really, really loved that one. I wouldn't quite call it it a historical romance. I'd say it straddled the line between romance and historical fiction. Another line straddler I enjoyed some time ago was Paint The Wind by Cathy Cash Spellman. It's ...

Many thanks for setting all that out Marg. What a hassle. You - and the other moderators have busy day jobs and lives to lead, and I do very much appreciate all that you're doing and the time it's taking out of your lives. Thank you! From a selfish viewpoint I am over the moon to find the forum back...

I can't find an avatar sig either. Boswell, I tried clicking on your link and got a box with 'no avatar specified'. It wouldn't let me uncheck the box to load it.

If I've signed in right, I'm probably EC2 this time around as I wasn't allowed to have only two letters/digits to my name. I dithered and dallied with handles, and decided that it was taking too lon...
