Picked up a haul today, that's for sure. I had to wait for a prescription to be filled and darn the luck, a brand-new Borders was right next door. ;)

'The Disorderly Knights' by Dunnett
'Pawn in Frankincense' by Dunnett

(I have the first two of the Lymond Chronicles, but am waiting to read them until I've obtained the whole series. I've learned the hard way not to start a series until I have them all, if at all possible, since I'm the most impatient person around!)

'The Queen's Secret' by Plaidy (part of her Queens of England set)
'The Loves of Charles II' by Plaidy...this is the 3-in-1 book that is the entire Stuart Saga.

I ordered Stealing Heaven by Marion Meade and Iseult by Dee Morrison Meaney. I ordered them from Half.com and got both for $8.48, including shipping. I'm happy.

Nonfiction: The Lost King of France: How DNA Solved the Mystery of the Murdered Son of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette by Deborah Cadbury. Saw it mentioned in Louis Bayard's The Black Tower, which I'm reading for review, and thought I would pick it up.
