TOP TEN TUESDAY: Historical Romances I Can't Believe I Haven't Read Yet
Hosted by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.
1. The Windflower by Laura London
It is considered a classic and I bought a copy when it was re-released last year. I plan on reading it as part of the TBR Challenge this year.
2. Highland Destiny by Hannah Howell
I adore the Murray Family series, but still haven't read the book that started it all.
3. Revealed by Kate Noble
Recommended by the ladies at Smexybooks. It looks like tons of fun!
4. The Spymaster's Lady by Joanna Bourne
I'm normally not a fan of romances with spies. But, I've heard fabulous things about this book especially its heroine.
5. The Perils of Pleasure by Julie Anne Long
I adored What I Did For a Duke and need to read the first Pennyroyal Green book.
6. The Secret by Julie Garwood
Quinn at Quinn's Book Nook loves this book and I have been planning on trying it for awhile.
7. Thunder and Roses by Mary Jo Putney
It is believed to have been a big part of starting the trend of series in historical romance.
8. The Flame and the Flower by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
Known as one of the first historical romances, I need to read this so I can appreciate how far the genre has come.
9. Mistress by Amanda Quick
The premise of a heroine going "undercover" in the ton and then being discovered by the very aristocrat to whom she is pretending to be mistress sounds silly, but like a lot of fun.
10. Anything by Georgette Heyer
She is considered by many to be the mother of Regency romance and I have never given one of her books a try.
