Historical Romance

This page will focus primarily on historical romance.

Sorry this page is incomplete. More information will be added as I continue to move things over from our old blog.

Historical Romance

The genre of historical romance includes all books set in the past that focus on romantic feelings between the main characters. A historical romance story usually ends with the couple getting married or, at least, proclaiming their love for one another.

My favorite historical romance novels are the ones with independent female leads who are atypical for their time period. I don’t like the wilting flower type character who swoons and bends to a man’s every command. It’s more fun to watch a man try to figure out how to deal with a woman who won’t listen to him or who won’t just throw herself at him.

Misty loves books with highlanders, especially if there is magic. I like books from all regions and time periods, but my favorites are medieval Western Europe and regency England. If the book has some fantasy elements, I’m even happier! We’ve listed both kinds of books on this page, the paranormal and the non-paranormal. Hopefully, you’ll find something that fits your own reading interests.
