Mine too, especially LoH and KoS. Not many authors can make the past/present thing work, but she does. She was one of the first authors to interest me in medieval times.

I pre-ordered The Running Vixen by EC, will be mailed in 42 days from book depository. I've never pre-ordered anything so i hope it goes well but I couldn't beat the price.

The copy of Fitzempress Law I ordered a few weeks ago arrived yesterday. It's an ex-library book but it looks like it has never been read!

Well, I suppose it depends on your defintion of "reasonable". I got it for less than I paid for most pairs of shoes I buy for work (dressy heels).
