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.


message 5: by Lori (new)

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.


Pluto Planet of Love 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...

http://www.glbtbookshelf.com

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?


message 21: by Kate (new)

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"
