Well, the story is unfolding ina very interesting way; she's not necessarily bad or naughty, just got caught up in an awkward situation. I'm bouncing between this one and a biography at the moment.

I am in a bit of a pickle in Crete. I have just been sold off as a slave to a notorious pirate lord.

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.
