Historical Romance

First of all, I want to thank all of you for participating in this feature every week. We’ve got a lot of AWESOME recommendations so far. It not only helps me but also all the readers who are looking for certain genres. If you haven’t read the previous posts, we’ve got six awesome posts which cover different genres. Check these out:

It is time for one of my most curious genres ever–historical romance! I only read one series so far, The Bronze Horseman series by Paulina Simmons, and LOVED (still love) it so much. I was OBSESSED with it and it’s been one of my all time favorite. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it. It is EPIC and unforgettable–one of the most memorable books I’ve ever read.

The Bronze Horseman (Book 1)
Tatiana and Alexander (Book 2)
The Summer Garden (Book 3)

Christy at Christy’s Love Of Books: I don’t read HR often, so I’m really picky when I do because I want it to be GOOD. When A Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare is the best I’ve read and is an all-around favorite of mine. It has a lot of humor. I just finished It Happened One Autumn by Lisa Kleypas, which was recommended by Lover of Romance. It was a lot of fun.

The Bookworm: I love this genre, I’ll have to check out The Bronze Horseman series then, sounds good! For this genre, I’d recommend Tessa Dare 120%. Her historical romances are sweet and funny and the heroines are smart and sassy.

Vanessa at Blushing Geek: Haven’t read a lot from this genre yet but I am starting to like it. For now, I could only recommend Something Wonderful by Judith McNaught which is book 2 in the sequels series but could be read standalone. I’ve stalked the other books in the series and so far I am loving what I’m reading.

  9. I really love the list you have here Lexxie and many I agree with on it and a few I have yet to read but are on my TBR!! 🙂 I absolutely loved the House of Trent series by Haymore. Those were simply fantastic and some of my favorite regency ones to read. It just has a fresh feel to them. I do love Sabrina Jeffries. I think my favorite books of hers are the Prince brothers trilogy and her Swanlea Sisters series. But I did have a blast with her two past series too.

  10. Haven’t read a lot from this genre yet but I am starting to like it.
    For now, I could only recommend Something Wonderful by Judith McNaught which is book 2 in the sequels series but could be read standalone. I’ve stalked the other books in the series and so far I am loving what I’m reading *wink
