  1. I am interested in A Golden Web by Barbara Quick.
    Tell me who should win Faustina's heart: Jacques D'amond


  2. Hi Velvet,

    I have not read a Diana Gabaldon in quite some time so I would be interested in that.

    My choice for Faustina - on Lammerts van Hartz.

    I've got a soft spot for Juan de Spades (ooh la la) - he seems dangerously vital & love his exillerance! So HE is the one for Faustina (a vital man would more closely suit her)hehe

    And I'm intrigued by the Charley Darwin book - that has got to be fun!

  4. I would choose the Charley Darwin book, and think Johnny is the one for Faustina.


  5. I think The Exile sounds interesting.

    Johnny o'Mallet should win her heart

    And Juan De Spades should win Faustina's heart.

  8. The Botticelli Secrets sounds great.

    Definitely Jacque D'amond!

  9. I would love any of these books, but The Pindar Diamond seems to catch my eye more than the others. And I'm rooting for Johnny for Faustina.

  10. I Love the cover of Poison by Sarah Poole

    And definitely Jacque D'amond

  11. My vote will be Jacque D'amond and I would love to read Mozart's Blood - thank you!

  12. And you did it again! It is simply mindblowing all the special and original events you make up and then organize! This historical fiction round was fantastic as usual! Hats off for all your hard worka nd effort, it was truly entertaininga dn fun! :-) I love historical novels, so had a great time browsing through your selections, but when I came upon Diana Gabaldon's The Exile, I knew it was a lost case for me to discover a new author, because as a huge Outlander fan, I CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE THIS IN MY HANDS!! :-)

    So my pick would be The Exile by Diana Gabaldon.

    In my opinion Johnny o'Mallet should get Faustina's hand, an Irish brogue is simply irresistible, and Irish men are charmingly mischievious, she would have a great time with him! ;-p
