Bookalikes: Kristen’s Top 5 Historical Romances
Featured on Will Read for Feels
Choosing my top five favorite historical romances is torture. I have countless favorites—as I’m sure most of you do, as well—but I’ve narrowed them down by selecting each from a different author. Here’s the list:
1. When He Was Wicked by Julia Quinn
This book was fantastic. I cried, I laughed, I blushed—it was all there.
2. More Than a Mistress by Mary Balogh
First off, the hero was not my type at all. He was very ducal, very stoic, and even mean at times, yet by the end of the book I adored him. The heroine was confident enough to stand up to his bullying, which was wonderful.
3. Too Wicked to Tame by Sophie Jordan
The hero was dark and tortured and super sexy, and the heroine just wanted to camp in his library and forget all about men. I loved it.
4. At the Bride Hunt Ball by Olivia Parker
This was another one where the heroine wanted nothing to do with the hero, but that wasn’t why I liked it so well. The heroine was hilarious. She was clumsy, and awkward, and I loved her for it, because I’m clumsy, too. Three cheers for clumsy women!
5. Your Scandalous Ways by Loretta Chase
This was a great suspenseful romance. There were spies and murderers and conspiracies. It was beautiful. The hero was sexy and suave, but the heroine was even sexier, and she knew it. I’ve loved every Loretta Chase book I have ever read, but this one was one of my all time favorites.
