Historical Romance UK Authors


If you love historical romance, then this is the blog for you!

It's run by a group of historical romance authors working in the UK. It crosses publishing boundaries to give readers details of new hardback books, paperback books, large print books, audio books and ebooks.

So, whatever your reading preference - this blog has something for you!
We hope you enjoy it!

I just discovered this blog and it looks like such a fun place to be! I cut my reading teeth on the books by the great Georgette Heyer and to this day, I still love every single title she has written.

It's a shame that the majority of UK publishers don't seem to respond to the needs of readers and the amount of historical romances on our shelves(I live in Malta where bookshops import books from the UK) are few and far between save for Mills and Boon Historical Romance and a couple of others. I'd love to see more books on our shelves written by British authors.

The Historical Romance is a thriving genre in the US, however, although there are some great writers, I do find that many is the time the so-called British characters sound American which does annoy me.

I look forward to reading more posts from this blog!

I love Georgette Heyer, too. We all do! We'll be talking about her books from time to time on the blog, so I hope you come again.

I'm delighted you've all decided to start this blog, but are you going to ask more authors to join you? Maybe I'm just being greedy, but I can think of a few UK historical romance writers who aren't on here yet, and I'd like to see them too.
