Re: Love Historicals? Head to Unabashedly Bookish NOW to dish!


"Shall we talk about the heroes who forgo wigs, choosing to wear their thick tresses in a little queue at the back?"
 
I'm with you on this one. Picturing a hero in a powdered wig doesn't do it for me.

omgomgomgomg!  melanie, debbie, I can barely breath.  There's this scene in Marsha Canham's "My Forever Love," where the...wait for it...virgin Knight Templar hero (sqee!)...is helping the heroine learn how to do up the fasteners on her braies and hose (she's obviously masquerading as a boy to foil a plot against Richard Coeur de Leon), and, well, things get wonderfully sexy from there...

And, oh, gawd, yes yes yes on the queue!  [I'm a little verklempt right now...] Oh, and you probably should know that I worship Marsha Canham and work her books into as many conversations as possible.

totally, becke.  unless it's a hero masquerading as a footman (or a brawny footman in reality) whose wig is knocked askew during, well, you know...

"My Forever Love" will be added to my TBR pile.
