    I loved A Kingdom of Dreams, and Whitney, My Love is next on my list. I have so many different versions of Whitney except for the new one…so I'll go get that too now. 😂😂

    Judith McNaught were the romance books I read when I was younger. I actually didn't know she changed and added to Whitney, My Love! I should check it out. My favorite of hers are Once and Always, Something Wonderful, Almost Heaven and Until You. I will say she does end her books abruptly, she should add more to all her books!

    I love Judith McNaught books. She was my first foray into historical romances. You should read Something Wonderful, it has another alpha duke and Until You. Until You is about Clayton's brother Stephen. I also love her contemporary books like Every Breath You Take, Paradise and Perfect.

    LOVE this video idea!!! I've now read 3 Beverly Jenkins novels and I am OBSESSED! Can't wait to read some of her more "old school" ones!

    Kathleen Woodiwiss is in my opinion the best old school romance author….Shanna, A Rose in Winter, The Wolf and The Dove. Treat yourself if you haven't already.

    Judith McNaught, Tanya Anne Crosby, Kathleen Woodweiss =OG Historical Romance Chef's 😘 I originally read most of their stuff as a teen. They still hold up. Personally, not a big fan of the whole "problematic nonsense". It's called fiction, people, as in NOT real. Not a fan of Elizabeth Hoyt. She tends to have a lot of spies in her books, and I'm just not into that trope.

    I'd say nora roberts
    Her writing style has changed over the years
    Her newer ones have more swearing, which spices up the stories
    Her older books don't have swearing, or the characters swear very little, but they're still amazing books!
    Her books are great!

    I didn't read the first Greycourt book, but When A Rogue Meets His Match (#2) was really enjoyable. I wasn't sure about the beginning, but I did end up really liking it.

    I would like to see a tropes overview video where you give a description of common tropes. I know you have more in-depth videos on your channel but a general overview would be very interesting to me.

    Hey there! I love your videos 🥰 do you have any historical romance recommendations where the protagonist has some sort of profession or career? Like the protagonist of The Secret, being a midwife and all that

    I don't read about books much, I just read books. This is the first time I realised there was retrospective cleaning of old school romances in new publications of it. I guess that makes sense. As a person who likes both types I'll have to look more closely for originals.

    Read the original Whitney My Love (one of my all-time faves), thanks for letting me know that there's now an updated version.

    "Not a lot happens" is a great way to describe most of the Rokesby series actually, but I kind of love the softer moments and just the focus on the sweet relationships. Haven't read the newest one yet, but I need to get on that! And yes, the cover is absolutely tragic.

    I’m 52 and started reading historical romances when I was 12. I started on Johanna Lindsey, Dorothy Garlock, Kathleen Woodiwiss, Judith McNaught and Jude Devereaux. I read everyday and romance is my favourite genre. I just started reading Tessa Dare, someone I’ve never read but have heard good things about. 🌸💕🌺

    I love you Lacey, and your soothing reviews of books is delightful. But I strongly disagree with 'Whitney, my love' inclusion as romance i shelve that book next to handmaid's tale and Stephen Kings the shining! Poor Whitney succumbing to Stockholm syndrome is one of the saddest ending! Did we read the same book?

    Julie Garwood is amazing! Prince Charming, Secret and the Rose series … so good! You're also missing some Amanda Quick pen name for Jayne Ann Krentz: Deception is excellent, Mistress is another great read. Everything these two authors write is amazing.
