Geddes MacGregor once wrote, “No one in Scotland can escape from the past. It is everywhere, haunting like a ghost." Scotland’s past is the subject of my Best Scottish Historical Romances list, Most are set in Scotland in that magical part of Scotland called the Highlands. Some are romances with a Scot as hero. All are rated 4 or 5 stars. See the list HERE.

Best Irish Historical Romances! I first developed this list for a friend of Irish descent who loves Irish historical romances. Since then, I have updated this list each year as I have come to love stories that feature Ireland and/or Irish heroes and heroines. The books on this list cover all time periods. Some transcend typical historical romance as they bring to life heartrending tales of the wonderful Irish people who survived much hardship to help make great their adoptive countries.
If you’re looking for stories of the Emerald Isle or handsome Irish hunks, or worthy Irish heroines, you will find them here.

Who doesn’t love a good pirate or privateer story? All that capturing, swashbuckling and romancing on the high seas—oh yes! Gets my blood boiling just thinking about it. See My List of the Best, those I have rated 4 or 5 stars. Some do not have pirates as such, but may have a swashbuckling sea captain or a privateer. In almost every case, part of the story takes place on the high seas. I love these tales!
It’s that time of year when I share my favorite heroes and heroines--my Christmas gift to you! I have read and reviewed 1000 romances, most of them historicals. In those novels that I have rated 5-stars there are some wonderful heroes and heroines. Noble men who overcome tortured pasts, flaws and the odds against them to pursue love and heroines who persist against great obstacles to be with the man to whom they would give their heart—strong, intelligent women of character. Every one a worthy hero and heroine. See the list HERE.
The new list is up! It's a a fairly new list, hence it is shorter than my others. It features romances set in the Victorian era, generally from 1837 (the year Victoria became Queen) to 1901 (the year of her death). The common perception of the period is that the Victorians were “prudish, hypocritical, stuffy and narrow-minded”. But these perceptions are not always accurate, particularly when the British characters were traveling and learning much about other cultures. See the list!
One of my readers asked me about the colors of the medieval era (from the 5th through 15th centuries). And this got me to thinking. For my own medieval stories, my research told me the people preferred bright colors and scarlet was often the color of nobility, including the English, French, Scots and Danes. But now I look to the source of those colors. See more.
Ever wonder what a daunting task it would be to set a romance in the time of revolution? What was I thinking, setting a romance in the French Revolution? Egads.
That bloody episode in France’s history saw thousands of people executed, not just Marie Antoinette, King Louis XVI and Maximilien de Robespierre’s political rivals, but also nobles, clergy, bourgeoisie and peasants lost their heads to the guillotine.
Well, to begin with, I had no choice.
