"There was a soldier, a Scottish soldier,
He went to Bourbonnais, (Il.) and did melt away..."

After a skirmish in 105 degrees of heat and 100% humidity it's no wonder I look less than the dashing Highlander of legend ;)

People haven't changed much in the course of two hundred years, but lifestyles and technology sure have. After two nights spent under canvas without air-con, my admiration for all those pioneers who went West without the trappings of our modern life increased dramatically!

My experience with the 78th Frazer's at the Meeting on the Theatiki re-enactment weekend did get me thinking of a plotline for a new Mr. Grey novel, set in the Highlands of Scotland in the 1740's.

Which brings me to my question:- Which era would you say is the most romantic? Would you - could you live in that time given the choice (and a healthy supply of modern medicine?) And what would you do with your life?

The most original answer gets a free download of my first book for Liquid Silver, Mr. Grey and the Hotel Ghosts - a spooky romance with a twist!

"An unusual and original plot, beautifully written with considerable charm and skill..."

I'd go for the Regency era just because I like their dresses. What? Tell me you weren't hoping I'd give an intellectual answer.

Nope...just the pretty dresses.

Okay and maybe the Roman times because, dang, those gladiators didn't wear much. Again...does this answer surprise anyone? I rest my case.

I'd go back to the Prohibition era. I'd love to be in the speak easies, wear those great gowns, meet the gangsters, become a moll, work my way up to the big boss, become his trusted woman then die in a shoot out because the boss's woman usually gets knocked off. What a life!

AJ --

You look very dashing in your kilt and all. Loved meeting you when you were in Indianapolis. Keep up the good work on the Mr. Grey books -- they are very cool and original!

My favorite era -- now!
