What's Your Favorite? Contemporary or Period Romance Novels


In answer to the question above, I would say period romance novels! If you find that strange, then let me explain why! Right from the start, I've had a keen interest in history and cultures of different eras. I love to immerse myself in a different world where love spoke a different dialect with a more profound meaning! The historical backdrops sketched in these romance books are truly surreal and blissful – perfect for the dreamy fiction reader!

If you're like me, then you'll definitely love to read the following period romance books –

  • Homespun Bride by Jillian Hart – This is an adventurous tale of Noelle Kramer and Thad McKaslin set in West America in the 19th century.
  • The Maid of Lorne by Terri Brisbin – Revive the era of brave knights and chivalry, clans and castles!
  • The Dutiful Rake by Elizabeth Rolls – Revel in the romance between the Earl of Rutherford and his young and beautiful charge, who later becomes his wife. As she makes her mark in London society, the Earl falls deeper and deeper in love with her.
  • Magnolia by Diana Palmer – Imagine a romance brewing in the backdrop of the sultry old South and the bustling high society of Atlanta. You won't be able to put down this intriguing romance novel once you've begun!

On the contrary, I have a friend who dislikes these historical romances. She likes to delve into the intimate, romantic details immediately. If you have no patience for lengthy narratives regarding the dos and don'ts of society, then go for contemporary romance novels. They contain less "discussion" and more "action" – perfect for the modern fiction reader!
