SWEET Historical Romances

 

This is a relatively new love for me (no pun intended). I always thought they were cheesy, sex-filled pieces of crap, so I didn't have much use for them. Granted, a majority of them are cheesy and/or sex-filled, which generally lands them straight in the pieces of crap pile for me, but the books I've found I love, I really, really love. 2016 was the first time I picked up a historical romance (and I'm not including Jane Austen or any of the classics in this group, as they were generally contemporary romances at the time they were written), but since then I've become hooked. I've read dozens of books and some of my favorite books of all time can be counted in this genre.

Even though I know that a majority of them are ridiculous and sappy, I have a special part of my reader's heart reserved for historical romances. To set the record straight, I'm a fan of the sweet romances aka the "clean" or "traditional" romances. I don't want any heaving bosoms, thank you. I prefer the more reserved romances that are about the relationship and not about getting the other person into bed.
