  1. Congratulations to Loretta on a *very* well-deserved award. I started ‘Mr.Impossible’ with some trepidation, not having read anything by Loretta Chase before, because the setting, requiring a knowledge both of Egypt and of the state of Egyptological research in the early 19th century, is very challenging indeed.
    LC doesn’t put a foot wrong, and as well as the impeccable research, there is delightful humour, a believable romance, and wonderful character development. An outstanding book altogether.

  5. One who rarely blushes is blushing now.
    Thank you AgTigress. That’s the kind of praise that goes straight to this author’s heart. The research was a challenge, but so interesting and so much fun that I’ll be doing it again very soon. In fact, my next blog will deal with a recent field trip (not to Egypt but to view some of the best sources for the time period).
    TG, I am rarely accused of perfection but will happily bear it from you.
    Mary Jo, I try to love all my heroes equally but the bad boys are dear to my heart, and the two you admire were the most fun to bring to life. I’m so happy that Rupert, too, has won a prize.

  9. After all these positive comments I rushed to my local B&N and was astonished to find not a single copy of “Mr. Impossible” on the shelves. (There were no others of her backlist, either.) I hope it was because they had all sold and were on backorder. Undeterred, I’ve ordered it from the online UBS and should have it in a week or two. I trust the Tigress’ opinion on the merits of the book enough to buy it sight unseen.
