Has your experience with reading and evaluating historical fiction had influence on your own writing? Together, they overcame civil war, completed the reconquista by defeating the last Moorish holdout of Granada, and sponsored the voyages of Columbus. I'd have sworn the title was something along the lines of "The Reluctant Princess" - but I can't find that in and among a maze of twisty historical romances that all look and sound alike.
