Friday Finds:: Tudor Dolls and More.....

No it's not a book but something else that is right up my alley Dolls and The Tudors. These beauties are based on the Showtime Series and the Dolls are wearing miniature versions of the costumes from the show.
I found them while looking for another doll based on Queen Anne Boleyn and came across these.

Liberty's Lady By Karen Harper

Summary:As the American colonies rose up against the oppression of Mother England, spirited journalist Libby Morgan fed the fires of rebellion and invoked the wrath of the Loyalists. Thus she was bound to clash head-on with the prime target of her rabble-rousing, the dashing New York aristocrat Cameron Gant, avowed Tory, spy and her sworn enemy.

But Gant was not the haughty silk stocking he seemed. And in his arousing embrace, Libby's contempt quickly dissolved as passions flared. Soon they were risking their lives--and love--in a daring masquerade that could end in liberty--or death.

My Thoughts:

This is one of Karen Harper's first historical romance and was orignally published under her name Caryn Cameron then was republished in 1990 under Harper. I believe it would be considered a collectors item if you are like me and consider Harper one of the best historical authors of our time.

It was a refreshing read compared to the other romances I have read recently where they were set in England. I really enjoyed the spy story within the romance and the fact that George and Martha Washington make an appearance in the book. there was a lot of interesting historical facts surounding the Declaration of Independance  the excitement surrounding  paper money.

I am going to be reviewing Freedom's Flame which tells the story of Libby's sister Merry and is set in my birthplace of Philadelphia. I cant wait to see what Merry will be up to
