I've got to do some reading so I can post to this list. The only historicals that I've read that aren't het are mmf.


message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

Marilla, there are some great books on this list! I recommend Ava March! She's awesome.


message 3: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Wow...who know this was such a large genre! haha


Barbara Gem(ini) "Wicked Gentlemen" is definitely not a historical romance, it's a fantasy.


Moderatrix Lori Barbara wrote: ""Wicked Gentlemen" is definitely not a historical romance, it's a fantasy."

You're correct Barbara so I've removed it from the list.


message 6: by yoksan (new)

yoksan Wow, thanks for this. I'll need to get myself on some of these books!


message 7: by Melora (new)

Melora I deleted the interloper book from the list. Anyone with a legitimate account that wants to vote for it again may do so.


message 8: by Fossilfriendly (new)

Fossilfriendly A Midwinter Prince is not historical either, it has computers and cellphones etc. It is a good book, but it doesn't belong on this list.


message 9: by Kate (new)

Kate I wrote an article about m/m historical then whined about not being able to find a place to link to it here at goodreads. Shannon pointed me to this thread. http://www.heroesandheartbreakers.com...


message 10: by Bookbee (new)

Bookbee Just a silly comment...
Secret Light is listed here as "Historical". It's set in 1955. I was born before then, so logically I am also "Historical"...which I find hysterical! LOL!

Vintage. I think anyone born before 1960 is considered vintage, like a really nice wine.

Oh, I like that MUCH better!


message 13: by Venecia (new)

Venecia Last call by DJ Manly is not historical.


message 14: by ttg (new)

ttg Mongrel by KZ Snow isn't a historical. It's more fantasy/steampunk in an AU world with special beings.


message 15: by Pwnn (new)

Pwnn The Steel Remains (A Land Fit for Heroes, #1)
by Richard K. Morgan - Fantasy and there's no romance

Every Good Thing by M. Jules Aedin - Fantasy

Like the Taste of Summer by Kaje Harper - Are the 1980s considered historical now?


message 16: by Christopher (new)

Christopher Moss What a wonderful list..

Come visit Our Story GLBTQ Historical Fiction at www.glbtbooksshelf.com for more historical titles.


message 17: by Kate (new)

Kate Hiya, Christopher, that link doesn't work.


message 18: by Christopher (new)

Christopher Moss Hmmm... it appears the typo monster is at work...

You can also just Google GLBT Bookshelf.

Just look for the OUr Story banner on the page.


message 19: by Christopher (new)

Christopher Moss Hey, by the way... we are looking for reviews of FLBT historical fiction.. anyone wanna join the merry crew?

Kate that one works!! Christopher Hawthorne wrote: "Hmmm... it appears the typo monster is at work...

message 22: by Karan (new)

Karan Since it looks like this story is set in the year 2040, wouldn't this fit better in a sci-fI category?

Agree with the Steel Remains it's a fantasy/sci fi mix, and far from romance.


message 25: by Kaje (new)

Kaje Harper Think of England is here twice - 162 and 189


message 26: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up! I ran a duplicate check, and all double entries should be combined now.


message 27: by Hamidabigmouth (new)

Hamidabigmouth Definitely recommend reading "The Desire for Dearborne by V.B. Kildaire"
