The first books in these series are on sale for just a couple more days!
To celebrate the sale, authors Robyn DeHart, Ally Broadfield, and Harmony Williams are spending the week with us! Today they share the love for the historical romance genre.
What do you love write (and read) historical romance?
Ally Broadfield (author of the How To series): I’m dating myself here, but by the time I turned twelve during the 1980s, I had read all of the children/teen books, all the mysteries, and all the gothic novels at our local library, so the librarian showed me the historical romance section and I never looked back. There’s nothing like historical romance to help you forget about the pressures and problems in your life and experience life and love in a different time and place.
Harmony Williams (author of The Ladies of Passion series): I love lighthearted, funny books. I’m also a sucker for friends-to-lovers, enemies-to-lovers, and fake engagement/relationship plots! Especially if they involve a wallflower, spinster, or governess.
Robyn DeHart (Author of The Brotherhood of the Sword series): I love the atmosphere and the social rules and the clothes and British guys are hot!
What historical romance books or authors would you recommend to readers new to the genre?
Ally: Jane Austen (Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice), Julia Quinn (The Duke and I, Ten Things I Love About You), Amanda Quick (Mistress, Ravished, Scandal), Sherry Thomas (Private Arrangements, Not Quite a Husband), Lisa Kleypas (The Wallflowers series), Jude Deveraux (A Knight in Shining Armor), and many, many more!
Harmony: Captive Bride by Bonnie Dee, One Step Behind by Brianna Labuskes, anything by Julia Quinn, Sally Mackenzie, Julie Anne Long, or Tessa Dare (especially When a Scot Ties the Knot).
Robyn: Suzanne Enoch is my go-to girl for historicals.
