    I just ordered a box of 60 random historical romances on ebay. Our library is closed and I am so desperate. Has anybody else had experience with random book boxes?

    I love the Maiden Lane series! All time favorites. You can totally read them out of order, but there is a cool through line when you read them all in order.

    adds all the historical romance books I haven’t read yet to my TBR

    Between you, Lacey and Lisa, I am never going to run out of historical romance reading options — and that’s the best thing ever! Can’t wait to read more in the new year 😉

    I was waiting to see how long it would be until you mentioned Lisa Kleypas. I haven't read anything by Elizabeth Hoyt or Kerrigan Byrne so I will add them to my TBR.

    Thank you so much for some awesome suggestions. I loved the Bridgerton Netflix series and will start reading the books! I do love good historical romances, and paranormal romances.

    You should try the Cynster series by Stephanie Laurens

    So fun fact, Julia Quinn actually made a short story for Violet, so kinda like a prequel. Not a full book like we'd all want, but it's something lol.

    Also, you should totally read The Ravenels from Lisa Kleypas, it is so good AND it has some of the kids of one of the Wallflowers…. 😉

    If you enjoy Joanna Shupe, I highly recommend her “Knickerbocker Series.” It’s my favorite. My first book from Joanna Shupe was “Magnate” which is still my favorite. It got me into reading more on the history of the Gilded Age.

    Lisa Kleypas? I'm there for that. Some Judith McNaught? Yes. Elisa Braden? Bring it on! Eloisa James? Heck ya. Maiden Lane by Elizabeth Hoyt? Mary Balogh? 👏 I've been reading historicals for almost 25 years and I've loved how they've evolved over the years 😻

    I finished reading that Joanna Shupe series just this morning! I love all the heroes in those and how they recognize the very deep connections with the heroines early on. I've read all these except the Beverly Jenkins which might be my next step now that I've dipped my toe into American HR, but my very favorite are the Kerrigan Byrne books!! They're very dark but not in a "dark romance" way. I love them so much.

    I've only read 1 book from The Maiden Lane series and can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the books. But I have to add that The Ravenels series by Lisa Kleypas is ultra binge-able.

    Please do a plus size heroine recommendation video but for historical romances only! The covers can be so misleading!

    I love your videos and your recommendations, have been a subscriber for a while.

    I am curious whats your thought on how sometimes Historical novels(especially ones based in Europe) fetishize the colonization aspect? The third book ok Kerrigan Byrne you mentioned had an Indian person whose main role was for the hero to look like a white savior-there were a lot of problematic aspects in the representation. Second Evie Dunmore book also has major issues and I haven't heard anyone call these things out. And also a lot of these titles like Dukes etc- the reason why they had all this wealth, titles and mostly did nothing is that they were exploiting and enslaving the African and Asian countries. The money and wealth was coming from somewhere but that is blatantly ignored? I understand its a fantasy, but we are starting to critique books like Gone with the wind for problematic slavery rep. So why is there no mention of this anywhere?

    I find it strange that American readers make a big hue and cry if slavery is positioned in an unsavoury manner in American history (as they should) but the same 'woke' readers ignore it when it comes to same things in other countries.

    I am not criticizing Jess- she has never made any problematic comments as far as I know (I have seen most of her videos).

    I am just pointing out these issues as I feel these are ignored by readers. In another place, when I commented – I received the answer that I as a POC woman am not the target of these books. WTF. But I guess its easy to ignore the problematic aspects when you are not the target.

    I looove Lisa Kleypas especially her sequence to the wallflower series Devil in the spring that links the second of her series about the Ravenels. Stephanie Laurens is also good with her Cynster series. 😊also Eloisa James The dutchess series and her fairy tale series are some of my favourite x

  25. Simona Tempra

    I have never been into Eloisa James' s books, I can't explain why but after I have read one I have never been attracted to her books am I 'm with Julian Quinn's, Lika Kleypas' s and Sarah Maclean's.
    I agree with you about Jennifer Ashley's Mackenzie books, they are nothing like other historical romance.

    I will reccomend three series.
    1. The Crown Spies series from Julie Garwood, starts with Lyons Lady, Guardian Angel, The Gift and ends with Castles which I actually read first.
    2. The Velevet Series from Jude Deveraux. 4 books set around 16th century.
    3. The Malory Family Series by Johanna Lindsey,this one honestly the first like 5 or so books are great but the quality decreases aftr that slowly.

    I want to read the Bridgerton series after watching the show and falling in love with the story. Do you need to read the books in order? I have the same question for the wilde series.

    I love all the love historical romance is getting 👏😍

  29. bookswithsamantha

    The Wallflower series or The Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas would be great adaptions 👏

    Mary Balogh's series Survivors Club is good, Johanna Lindsay's Malory-Anderson family is good even though it is older, Stephanie Lauren's Bastion Club, or Cynsters books are also good.

  31. Classics Lover

    The historical romance series about the Hathaways and the Bow Street Runners (both written by Lisa Kleypas) are phenomenal! I also recommend the Bedwyn Saga and the Survivors Club series by Mary Balogh. Tessa Dare's Spindle Cove series has some hidden gems in it.

  32. Mayde Gomez

    My absolute favorite series is The Malory from Johanna Lindsey…
    I'm in love with James

    The Poldark series by Winston Graham is excellent. I also love the old Victoria Holt novels, such as King of the Castle and Shadow of the Lynx.

    What’s the name of the book where the heroin marries a guy by saying that she’s pregnant but actually not and the guy marries because of the curse that father dies when the baby is about to be born?

    I'm honestly shocked that Loretta Chase's Carsington Brothers series didn't make the list….

    I love how much of a moment HRs are having. I’ll have to check out some of these recommendations. I’m surprised that more people aren’t recommending Johanna Lindsey’s Malory series. It’s so damn funny and binge-worthy. Those books were everything when I was a teenager! I started watching Bridgerton and had to pause it so that I could shoot a text to a couple people. I knew I loved it instantly. I actually sent my friend a text,” OMG this show is like Gossip Girl meets the Malory series!” I HIGHLY recommend spending some time with the Malorys if you enjoyed Bridgerton

    Have you read The Hathaways series by Lisa Kleypas? If you loved the Bridgertons you'll love this series. It's about a family of 5 siblings who find love. If you haven't, I highly recommend it. 🙂

    I would highly recommend reading The Proposal, which is the first book of the Survivors Club series by Mary Balogh. There are eight books in total and everyone of them are excellent. Mary Balogh is my favourite author and I have read HR books for over 20 years. I own over 30 of Mary's books and I will never give any of them away. There are many excellent authors and I enjoy learning about other books. Please keep sharing these with us!

    Read the Rules of the Rogue series by Emily Windsor. New author, but i find so much better storyteller than Kleypas or Hoyt. And her books are cleverly hilarious

    The Hunter by Kerrigan Byrne: "In this one, he is an assassin. He has to kill her. But he doesn't want to cos he loves her. INSTEAD OF KILLING HER, HE KISSES HER. AND THAT'S AMAZING."

    I couldn't stop myself from laughing at that bit 😀
