I love this series. Well written and I love the juxtaposition between the historical storyline and the modern. Willig has a way with the characters and the dialog that is so real. It's very conversational in tone, making it a quick read and yet it's also witty with great little plots. There are romantic overtones, but nothing too racy, which I think often detracts from the writing of other authors. Highly recommended.
