This comment not so much about spam.

My copy of Flowers from the Storm arrived yesterday, and I stayed up till 2 reading it.

Lovely book.

Anyway, thanks.

Prince of midnight, also good?

Prince of Midnight, also good. Although it has some flaws which become apparent when you compare it side by side with Flowers.

It's not quite as dark and there are more derring do scenes of dashing escapades. Some of which sort of get in the way of the relationship of the H/H from time to time.

BUT. It is BY FAR the best book I've read about a highwayman. And a highwayman's horse.
