Outlander. My favorite!!!!!
I wrote a time travel one… but it’s Sydney Australia, 1858 & 2018, and there are two couples — with the main [female] characters changing places…and, well… lines are crossed, so it’s not ‘pure romance’…so…. maybe not. 🙂
A Reliable Wife
Journey to the Well by Diana Wallis Taylor. About Jesus and the woman at the Well. ?
The BBC miniseries of Pride & Prejudice pretty much wipes out the competition for me…the one with Colin Firth. All that smoldering, ack!
Gone With the Wind did it for me at age 16…it’s still darned good if you can see past the racial typecasting of the era.
Gone With The Wind is great. I haven’t read it for many years, but even so, I’m not sure I would call it a love story. (That’s just me though.)
Angela May Hm, good point. It almost was…Let’s see, she thought she was in love with Ashley, but while he was unavailable she married a couple of other guys who were of use to her. Rhett married her for love but she married him for money, which he knew, but then when the Ashley dream died, she realized she loved Rhett but it was too late…or was it?? It’s complicated, but not any more than love stories can get…?
The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly. It’s a trilogy.
Julie Garwood-everything early from her. Early I mean everything except the last four five books which are written in the present time. She is my go to author, I love her.
A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers.
Georgette Heyer, Jane Aiken Hodge, Victoria Holt, Charlotte Keppel, Sylvia Thorpe,Paula Allardyce, Elswyth Thane, Charity Blackstock, Each have written many historical romantic novels. Enjoy.
