Me too.. I find I am leaning a little more towards that way lately.. I will always Love Historical romance.. But I find I have been branching out.

Ottilie (ottilie_weber) | 438 comments I like to read multiple generes and alternating between them, I prefer more mindless stuff right after school after all the 'interletual' reading I have to do for school.

Leea Okay i read this a while back and it's very good with some romance. The author builds these characters so you cannot help but love them!!

The White Mare
The Dawn Stag
Song of the North

Good to know.. I own all 3... Lol. Bought 'em on one of my MANY buying frenzies.. AKA.. 'Book Buying Spree to Induce Mental Stability', Or BBSIMS...

But I haven't read them yet. I prefer romance on some level of anything I read anyways.. Keeps it interesting.

Ottilie (ottilie_weber) | 438 comments I like a little romance, but I don't want full romancantic fluff with close to no plot, I like balances.

I find I am with you on that one Ottie, I need some grit, suspense, mystery, history, humor, etc etc.. And a damn good story.. But I like when it centres areound a love story.

Leea, have you read Jules Watson's other book, The Swan Maiden! It was an excellent read.

Leea Oh I was just Looking at that book on my book shelf today. So I should read it. Her books are are so good but emotional.

Laura (highlandhussy) | 16 comments I think it depends what type of Historical fiction you prefer. Me? I love Highlanders :D
But if you're looking for something more like the elegance of the Regency, go with Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake best Historical of the year, IMO.
