I love reading a good novel based on historical events. But I must admit I like the entertaining aspect of the book itself surrounded by fiction characters within a love story....thus.........historical romance!

My favorite authors are many, but my current favorites are the following:

Diana Gabaldon
Karen Marie Moning
Kathleen Givens
Julie Garwood

Maggie, you're welcome. That was my point exactly! I love a little romance with my history. wink.gif Although some historical novelists out there are not very accurate, it still makes for entertainment. And of all us reading them know that that's what it is .......entertainment. But if a period of time or culture that I am reading about does strike up my curiosity for fact, I will pick up a real history book and read it. I am studying a little of American History again because of one book I am reading. biggrin.gif

I am like you in that I could start a bookstore with the number of books I have!

Are you reading anything now?

Maggie, you are so funny! wink.gif biggrin.gif

I am reading Diana Gabaldon's fifth book in her series, The Fiery Cross. It actually deals a lot more with American history than romance right now! wink.gif

I liked her books better when they were set in Scotland.

I like the parts that are set in America better, maybe because I'm too much set into scottish history by now. Even though they are not as "schmalzig" wink.gif

One of my favorite historical romances (if you buy King Arthur as history) is Joan Wolf's "Road to Avalon" - the lifelong love affair between Arthur and Morgan Le Fay! Yeah, that's different.

I've read it several times and each time find myself grabbing tissues at the end. It's out of print though, and hard to find.

LOL! Aon! I, too, like the DG novels better set in Scotland! tongue.gif laugh.gif I just like being in Scotland whether it is fantasy or fact. Now I know to get Scottish history books to read along with my fantasy books! rolleyes.gif Although now the series being set in America I am having to get my American history books out now! unsure.gif Fortunately, a good friend of mine here is a history Professor here in my town. He knows American, British and other civilizations as well. Hmm, sounds like I need to get him over here for dinner and pick his brain! thumbs_up.gif

I just finished, The Conqueror. I give it thumbs_up.gif ! Very good book about Alexander the Great. He was a man of the world! Keep in mind that it is a historical romance. wink.gif

So do I. I read her last book "The time of dreams" , the second part of the "Fiery cross" a few months ago. Didn't like it very much. Some of the characters completely disappeared, others came back just at the end and the explanations have to wait the next book, Grrrr !!

In fact I love these historical romances, Diana Gabaldon's, Jean M. Auel's, Juliette Benzoni's, Barbara Taylor Bradford's, and so on, the problem is that they are often sagas with 5 or 6 books. If you buy the 6 books together, it's good. But if you buy the first one because the story suits you and then you discover it's the first of a saga it's irritating, specially if the saga isn't finished, so you have to wait 2 or 3 years before reading the next book when you've almost forgotten the story...
