I've always loved to read and remember in high school discovering an author by the name of Rosalind Laker. I think the bulk of her writing was in the mid 80s and early 90s, but the stories are wonderful. They are historical romances, but each set in a different time and place. Often the herione (or her family) would have some special skill, so you'd learn all about it, as well as the historical elements. I remember in one book is about a woman who is an apprentice to Vermeer (long before the Girl with the Pearl Earring), in another I learned all about Ventian mask making and another about making hats.
The books just had the wonderful ability to really trasport the reader to another time and place.
Some that I remember especially enjoying:
Has anyone else read her books?
