Dunnett, Dorothy -- Niccolo Rising (House of Niccolo, book 1)

Dunnett, Dorothy -- The Spring of the Ram (House of Niccolo, book 2)

Start of Dunnett's Other Series. Vast historical tapestry; characters grinding against each other and throwing out huge showers of brilliant sparks. A more interesting romance-tension than in her first series. Dunnett is the pacing queen: you show me another romance which spends this much time setting up the background of the One True Pair before they even notice each other.
