Hi, I love historical romance! I'm currently reading Diana Gabaldon's The Scottish Prisoner. I love the Georgian period, but I love Regency romance, especially with a twist. I read a great Vonnie Hughes called 'Coming Home' the other week. It started off with a Portugal setting and then moved to England. Really heart-rending characters and a truly 'aaaah' ending. I haven't read Karen Robards but I've been meaning to. What do you think of Shameless, Leah? (BTW, I'm in Australia so off to bed now. Look forward to your thoughts in the morning.)
There absolutely must be heaps of historical lovers. CJ Archer, your books have always struck me as being so bold and different, since you write in the Elizabethan era. I often think it a shame that certain time periods are so "so" popular, like the Regency, for example, that others don't get a look-in.
But when you think of the amazing historical events during the Tudors, there's so much teeth-chatting potential conflict. After all, if you're rich, you're always in danger of getting your head chopped off. And if you're poor, you might get burned at the stake. Or is that a little simplistic? It's good fodder for loads of romance and intrigue, though - which I adore!
What are some other more unusual time periods people have read and enjoyed?
Hi, I'm a writer and a reader and new to the forum. I love all kinds of romance, but historical is my favourite. I loved Karen Marie Moning's Highlander series and a wide variety of other historical romane writers. I guess I'm not too discriminating, if the story is good, the characters memorable and the setting well-conceived, I will jump into a book set in any historical period. However, my epublished book, Taming the Hawk, is set in the Victorian era--because I'm almost old enough to have lived then. :-) It's good to be here.
