Historical Romance

Historical romance novels are almost always set prior to the 1970s, although this is subjective and changes with time. Many stories infuse contemporary sensibilities into historical settings, such as a heroine with higher education than the historical norm or a career. Well-known authors include Lynn Kurland and Lisa Kleypas.

Historical romances can be Ancient, Viking, Medieval, Regency, Victorian, Scottish, Colonial, Civil War, Western, and others. Book Country's genre map will continue to change as new literary categories emerge and others fall out of fashion. If you write novels focused on historical romance, explore this subgenre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
