message 1: by Kathrynn (new)

Kathrynn Great list, Pamela!


message 2: by Gill (new)

Gill My favourite - Kate O'Brien's "That Lady" isn't here. :-(


message 3: by Kathrynn (new)

Kathrynn You can add it, M and G.

Go to--almost--the top, right-hand corner. See the "find/add books to list" and add away. :-) If you run into problems, post back and I'll see if I can help you out.


message 4: by Gill (new)

Gill Thanks for that. New to this game! :-)




message 5: by Kathrynn (new)

Kathrynn No problem. Feel free to PM me anytime, M and G, if you need help with anything on GRs. :-)


message 6: by Mai (new)

Mai Great list !
I think Lord of Ice by Gaelen Foley and The Rake by Mary Jo Putney are classics not to mention These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer .
Thank u for the awesome list !


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Great list :)


Pamela(AllHoney) No, Halah, not if its the one I'm thinking of. I'll see if I can remove it.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Pride and Prejudice? ::bangs head against wall::

Nothing to see here folks!


message 10: by Pamela(AllHoney) (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) Yes, there are quite a few that I wonder about. I did delete a few of the most obvious ones.


message 11: by Alice (new)

Alice This is probably just my own thing--but I don't really consider Jane Eyre a historical romance since at the time it was written it was only set about 10-15 years in the past. Same thing with all the Jane Austen novels on the list and Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier.


message 12: by Pamela(AllHoney) (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) Technically its not but I won't remove them because of the amount of people who voted on them.


message 13: by Patricia (new)

Patricia Strickland "In the Garden of Iden," by Kage Baker, anyone?


message 14: by Ingie (new)

Ingie Great list. I get a lot of good ideas for future reads here.

A historical romance from the point of view of today readers maybe ?! :)


Gundega (Rouzmary) Without knowing about it I've already read more than a fifth of this list and quite a lot of them are on my to-read list, lol, me knows what to read, huh? :D:D:D

message 18: by Annette (new)

Annette Until You by Judith McNaught not here, and that was my first romance ----changed my life.

Booklovinglady There are far more than 100 books on this Listopia... (1186 titles at the moment). The description has clearly been adapted but shouldn't the title be adapted as well?
