I’m kind of new to historical fiction but love it! Do any of these authors write humorous/witty historical fiction? Thank you!
@Danee If you like humor, try “Dear Mrs. Bird” (snort out loud funny) or Deanna Raybourn’s Veronica Speedwell mysteries.
Thank you!! I’ve read and loved Eloisa James and a few others but not sure who else to read.
@Danee If you like Eloisa James, have you tried Loretta Chase (“Mr. Impossible” is hysterical)? And, of course, Georgette Heyer (she does madcap humor so brilliantly— try “The Nonesuch” or “Arabella” or “The Grand Sophy”.)
Loretta Chase, possibly.. but I definitely haven’t read Georgette Heyer. Thank you!!
You are in for such a treat! She invented the Regency as a genre….
I just looked her up and I remember someone recommended The Corinthian.

@Nancy, Sophie Perinot, @Thelma, @Joy, @Jodi, @Camille, @Aimie… Do you have a specific time period? Are you looking for kick-ass women? All the authors I’ve just mentioned have strong female protags–and create page-turners.

Jennifer Chiaverini (Christmas Bells), if you like mystery with historical settings – Anne Perry and Charles Finch and Charles Todd for starters.
Brock and Brodie Thoene have many great action packed series that take place during different time periods.
Lisa Wingate… her Seakeeper Series is awesome
