I love historical romance and historical fiction so I had fun thinking about this topic. I enjoy Regency England as much as the next history fan, but I would like more variety.
1. Pre-16th Century Ireland
Ireland has a pretty bleak history, but I would be interested in stories from before England took over.
2. 18th Century Russia
During the time of Catherine the Great.
3. Edo Period Japan (1603-1868)
Actually, any Japanese historicals would be fine, but, when I was digging around in Wikipedia, this seemed like an intriguing time.
4. Ancient Rome or Greece
I have always had a thing for these two settings and want to read some historical romances set there.
5. Civil War-era Kentucky
My home state was considered an important border during the Civil War and is considered to be a prime example of the "brother vs. brother" scenario.
6. War of 1812 -- America
I don't think I've ever read a romance set in this time.
7. Renaissance Venice
I adore the Heath Ledger romance, Casanova, so I want more!
8. World War I or World War II Canada
Like Japan, I would be interested in any Canadian historical romances.
9. Late 19th Century Brazil
I know very little about South American history besides the European explorers' arrival so I would love to learn more.
10. Harlem Renaissance New York
The Roaring Twenties is becoming popular, but I would especially like to see more of this sub-setting.
