There is a whole bunch that should rather belong in the Romance section - more like characters in costumes, girls dressed up as boys, midwives accused of withcraft several times over (it's a 6 book series by now and judging from the cover blurb the 6th version of book 1 ) and this nonsense about female popes. Somehow the Middle Ages are Germany's Scottish laird with his claymore and the feisty Sassenach lass right now.
OK, maybe I won't feel so bad then that I can't read them! I did notice that an awful lot of them dealt with midwives and/or witchcraft.
