What makes for a great historical romance?

    Love Jennifer Ashley’s Mackenzies, can’t wait for Hart’s story. Also loving Elizabeth Hoyt’s Maiden Lane series, Loretta Chase, Julia Quinn, Sarah Maclean, Tessa Dare, Anne Gracie and too many more to mention.

    Joanna Bourne’s books are amazing too, so looking forward to The Black Hawk.
