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 :)


message 8: by Halah (new)

Halah Ahmad Blue-Eyed Devil ? historical ?


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 11: 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 12: 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 13: 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 14: by Patricia (new)

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


message 15: by Ingela (new)

Ingela 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 (aka 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
