I realize I have friends who follow my blog who are not necessarily fans of romance in general, and historical romance in particular. However I know many of you are. Previously I have shared why I love historical romance. I love the fairy tale and the happily-ever-after. But I also love the situations that characters can be thrown into which simply can’t happen in modern romance. No one shows up at a young woman’s home in the 21st century, with a directive from the country’s leader, telling her she must marry a stranger and travel with him to his home. Just imagine that for a moment. Now imagine that he is handsome, and hurting, and needs you. There is a great story there but only believable in a setting where it could happen.
So, even if you only occasionally read historical romance, what is it about them that you enjoy?
