Yes, well, it's a repeated line in the book -- everyone keeps thinking the little boy is a little girl, and the heroine keeps saying, 'I must cut his hair'... :)

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite 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.

England, 1792.

I'm waiting at Dover for a storm to abate so I can set sail for Calais and warn my husband that the French Agent is on to him. I've risked my reputation to do so because the inn keeper thinks I'm eloping with a young gallant :eek: .

Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
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!
