  4. I have to agree with some of the others - not my usual thing, but it sounds interesting. I'm curious. Great pick!

    If you'd like, you can check out my WoW here.

  5. Laura Frantz is at the tops of my favorite authors list! The Frontiersman's Daughter and Courting Morrow Little were both amazing, and I have no doubt The Colonel's Lady will be the same!

    Courting Morrow Little recently finaled in the Carol Awards (as did TFD last year!).

    I can't wait for TCL!!!! :D
