Romance Historical

We know her name. We know of her naked ride. We don't know her true story.

We all know the legend of Lady Godiva, who famously rode naked through the streets of Coventry, covered only by her long, flowing hair. So the story goes, she begged her husband Lord Leofric of Mercia to lift a high tax on her people, who would starve if forced to pay. Lord Leofric demanded a forfeit: that Godiva ride naked on horseback through the town. There are various endings to Godiva's ride, that all the people of Coventry closed their doors and refused to look upon their liege lady (except for 'peeping Tom') and that her husband, in remorse, lifted the tax.

Naked is an original version of Godiva's tale with a twist that may be closer to the truth: by the end of his life Leofric had fallen deeply in love with Lady Godiva. A tale of legendary courage and extraordinary passion, Naked brings an epic story new voice.

I've never made honey cake, but the recipe sounds easy enough, and yummy enough. I just have to do some minor conversions to make it. What would me even yummier would be to read your book, since it's been on my radar, almost since it's come out!! I've always been fascinated with Historical figures, as well as History, and I'm sure your book will not disappoint!! Congratulations on your latest book, and I'm sure it's going to do quite well!!

working that weekend.

but I would need to change the measurements. ;-)
