I truly love Hope's The Prisoner of Zenda and its sequel. Weyman's works feel very similar to me (which is why included him). I may have to read some McCutcheon, now that you've gone and mentioned him in the same sentence as Anthony Hope.
Very, very similar in feel to The Prisoner of Zenda is McCutcheon's Graustark. I'd start with that one.

And now I'll have to seek out Weyman! Where to start?

ETA: I also love Hope's The King's Mirror.

I'd probably go with the iconic Under the Red Robe. Thanks for the recommendations!

Excellent recommendation in The King's Mirror. Thanks! I can see why Hope was so proud of it.

I'll recommend Music of the Spheres by Margaret Wander Bonanno. It a Star Trek The Original Series book. It's quite good and it's the only free Star Trek book you'll find here.

And a book from the middle of a series.

It's a sequel to the Star Trek movie A Voyage Home. So if you've seen the movie, then you are good to read.

Nothing wrong with contributing a book you like a lot to the Library or with recommending it.

Thanks for the recommendation. This is a terrific read for those who like turn of the last century romance.

I hadn't realized that unlike The Prisoner of Zenda and Graustark, this was in The Scarlet Pimpernel vein of historical fiction. It's always nice to feel you've learned a bit while being entertained by a swashbuckler.
