Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favorite Historical Romance Books

Historical Romance is my favorite genre.  In fact, it is THE preferred genre when I want to get away from real life.  There is just something about the time that really captures my imagination.  Here are my top 10 favorites so far.


Secret Ways by Kat Martin was the first book that I ever read that got me into Historical Romances.  Before that, I was reading a lot of Harlequin Historicals and although they were good, Secret Ways opened a whole new world for me.


The Secrets of Mia Danvers was the first book that I read by Robyn DeHart and this really blew me away.  This was the first (and only) book that I read where the heroine was blind.  Plus, romance and Jack the Ripper?  AMAZING!


I found this book in a second-hand bookstore back in my hometown and I fell in love with it.  I still have the raggedy book with me right now.


This is my favorite Tracy Anne Warren book.  I loved the development of Mallory and Adam’s love story – the way Adam finally won the heart of the woman he fell in love with years ago.


I also bought this book in a second-hand bookstore.  I have recommended this book to a few of my friends and they loved it to the point where I can’t find my OWN copy.  I had to buy a copy of it on Amazon just so I have it on hand.


How to Woo A Reluctant Lady is my favorite book by Sabrina Jeffries.  I have read this more than three times already and it still brings me to tears (for some reason).


Ah, Lisa Kleypas.  She is one of my favorite historical romance writers and she does not write historical anymore.  Dreaming of You is my absolute fave of all her books.  Craven is the ultimate antihero.


This is a top read from Author Jenna Petersen.  Although she doesn’t write under Jenna Petersen (she writes under Jess Michaels in the Erotic Historical Romance genre), Lessons from a Courtesan is my absolute fave of all her books.


One Good Earl Deserves a Lover is the first book that I read from Sarah MacLean and it remains my top read from her.  She has also become a one-click author for me and I am currently reading her backlist.

Secret Desires of a Gentleman is my favorite Laura Lee Guhrke book.  I’ve read this book multiple times and it has never disappointed me.

So, do we share favorite Historical Romance books?  Share your picks below!

  1. I picked Historical Romance as well and I feel exactly the same way as you do about them 🙂

    My picks are fairly recent publications and some of yours I haven't read yet. I do have One Good Earl Deserves a Lover on my list because it was a really, really great read for me.

    Thanks for sharing! I hope you can drop by My Top Ten Tuesday list 🙂

    • Thanks for dropping by fellow Historical Romance lover! 🙂 I actually chose to keep my old faves because these were the books that made me love the genre so much…

    • I love Laura Lee… she is focusing on American Heiresses now and I know what you think about that… LOL I remember reading Judith McNaught years ago but I think I didn't like the book that I read… can you recommend one for me?

  2. Wow! I'm honored to have made your list. And it looks as if we share some favorite books. I haven't thought of that Meagan McKinney book in years, but man, it's a good one.

    Have a great day!
