Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

And here's the May thread!
Been off at a renaissance faire this weekend, but listened to Sansom's Heartstone coming and going.

Still plowing through Miss Emily. I really think I am going to throw in the towel.

Shadows and Strongholds by Elizabeth Chadwick :D
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
{Ensiferum}

Have two going at the moment. Just after Midnight by Lori Handeland, Yukon gold rush, Dawson City. Pretty good for an older Kensington, and one I picked up as a freebie somewhere along the years. Also Dreams of Gold by Lewis Orde. Big fat one and I know they eventually end up in California, but currently in New Orleans after the voyage from England.

I downloaded a new novella for Tracy Grant's Charles and Melanie Frasier books. I didn't know it existed until I was trolling the latest digital additions to the library. Grant it filling in bits of back history in these novellas she's publishing between the main books. This one takes place before Vienna Waltz, on their return to England. I wouldn't recommend this for those who haven't read is it book five or six where the big secret is revealed?
