Romance Sub-Genre Recs – Historical Romance
Hey, and welcome to my new post series – where I recommend various romance sub-genres to you. The idea came to me the first weekend in February, while I was chatting with Evelina @ Avalinah’s Books. She asked me to recommend romance books to her.
This week, I am recommending Historical Romance books. I love those that are a bit unconventional – where the heroine doesn’t follow society’s restrictions. Where she dares to think differently, and she is also smart!
The Rogues to Riches series by Erica Ridley is really good! It has the feel I love in a historical romance – with the ton, beautiful ballgowns, whispering behind backs, and some kind of scandal going on.
There is also a little bit of humor in this series, and that just makes things even better in my opinion 🙂
The Curse of True Love series by Donna Cummings is a very nice mix of genres. It’s definitely historical romance, but there are some interfering deities there as well. Plus Cummings’ trademark humor that never fails to reel me all the way in.
The Duke’s Daughters series by Megan Frampton is delightful. Because the duke’s daughters are definitely reckless. And headstrong, and everything a ‘good’ lady of the ton is not supposed to be.
Ashlyn Macnamara has a series about Duke Defying Daughters as well, and it’s really well done. It’s quite sexy, and both the daughters and their beaus have made me laugh, feel happy, a bit sad at times, and just been very enjoyable. Their journeys are also different from the usual, which is partly why I enjoy them so much.
The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz is very different. There’s time travel. There’s a lot of soul-searching. There is also a feel of both hopelessness and infinite hope. And it’s so very well written. This is a stand-alone novel, and if you haven’t read it yet but enjoy historical romances, you should pick it up!
The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon is one of my all time favorite series! It’s so, so good. I guess I don’t need to say all that much about it, because if you haven’t been living under a rock, you have heard of it already. Time travel, as strong female protagonist, a love so strong it’s incredible… Plus, Jamie *sighs*.
Sinful Suitors by Sabrina Jeffries is another spectacular series. I mean, who doesn’t want sinful lords doing their best to get respectable ladies to come to them willingly? And then, be surprises that the ladies just might be a little bit sinful as well 😉
There are many more books and series I could recommend here. If you need more, you should just check out my historical romance shelf on Goodreads 😉 The ones mentioned here are among my favorites, though.
Do you think there’s any more that need to be on the list? Let me know 😉
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a spectacular Sunday and happy reading.
