Still 19th century England. (I will be somewhere new in like 400 pages.)

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!

I am somewhere in the tropics during the Colonia era with my Duke masquerading as a pirate to get his revenge on my evil fiancée. A hurricane just blew through, and not only did the little shack survive the storm without even rattling the rooftop (maybe it did, we were too busy making whoopee), we're now making more whoopee on the beach after the storm. And guess what - no damage to the trees or anything else after the big hurricane.

:D :o :) :rolleyes: :cool: :p

Just left New Orleans and that wacky Mayfair clan. Contemplating Steinbeck's Camelot as a next stop!

I'm probably going to be in 19th century England for the rest of the year.

Still in Tudor London, investigating some nasty murders, and also now stranded somewhere in the English countryside in a snowstorm on Xmas Eve, where I've taken refuge in an abandoned house with some fellow passengers after our train ground to a halt in a snowstorm. And there's also been a murder!

1762. On the Isle of Skye, trying to get my horse, my dog and my crow to the Isle of Rona.
