Oooh, I love that Claude and Camille is in there! I've read two Stephanie Cowell books and really enjoyed both of them. Her writing is so lush and beautiful.

I really have to get Claude and Camille on my WL soon! Has anyone read Cowell's Nicholas Cooke series? I've had the 1st book for ages, but didn't want to read it until I got the 2nd book. The 2nd book never, ever seemed to be posted here, so I need to just buy it one of these days.

I WL'd some of these books.  They sound really good....especially The Scarlet Lion and Claude and Camille.  I love the front cover of Claude and Camille, it is very beautiful.

Lori Scarlet Lion should be read after the Greatest Knight as it deals with the second half of Willian Marshall's life,  Don't know if you knew that or not.

Uh-oh...I was just trying to find some room on my wishlist for this one.

Cathy, did you read her "Marrying Mozart"? If so, what did you think of it? I read it and really enjoyed it.

 

There's another "artsy" H/F I'm wanting to try..."Dancing for Degas" by Kathryn Wagner. Anyone read it?

Valli, C&C is the only book of her's that I've read. I just wasn't really grabbed into the big romance and thought some of the prose rather bland. That said, I think Michele (A Reader's Respite) and I were just about the only two who felt that way. I'd post links to the reviews here from our blogs, but you know those rules...

Letty, I didn't know that.  Thanks for telling me.  I won The Greatest Knight in a swap, so I can read it long before it is WL'ed. lol
