Unabridged Chick

I'm Audra, a 30-something married lesbian. I love interesting heroines, gorgeous prose, place as character, and the occasional werewolf.
Royal Harlot: A Novel of the Countess Castlemaine and King Charles II - Susan Holloway Scott I don't know how historically accurate this novel is, but I really enjoyed it. It read quickly and the main character, Barbara Palmer, seemed true to her time rather than a modern woman plunked in Restoration-era England. In fact, despite being a hard woman to like at times, I liked her and felt sadness at the end -- the novel had a delicious, bittersweet note of ending which was great.
