Best Victorian Romances! 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, as you will see in the romances on my best list.

It takes talent to write a great historical romance novel, but to write three in a row and make them all worthy reads is a challenge. If you like to read trilogies, as I do, here’s see my list of the top ones I recommend HERE.
Among the things I love are spy stories set in turbulent times, shipmasters who are masters of the sea, and the country of Scotland. All of them come together in my new Regency romance, A Secret Scottish Christmas, set on the northeast coast of Scotland.
Britain was certainly in turmoil then. With high taxes from the Napoleonic wars and the lack of any Parliamentary representation for the growing numbers of workers in the north, the winds of rebellion were stirring.
When Lord Sidmouth gets word of a man of the Scottish gentry raising cries for reform in Scotland, he sends two of his agents north. They just happen to be the identical Powell twins. Their cover to get them there? An invitation to a “secret” Christmastide celebration at the home of a successful shipbuilder in Arbroath.
Into the mix steps a beautiful lass with fiery red hair and two loyal dogs she has named “Goodness” and “Mercy”. Throw in a snowball fight, ice skating on a frozen pond and a trip to Stonehaven for Hogmanay and to see Dunnottar’s ghosts, and you have a Christmas to be long remembered.
