    I love reading Love Inspired Historical books. I prefer stories set in the old west but recently read Regina Scott’s The Irresistible Earl and discovered the wonderful world of regencies. It’s all good 🙂

    LIH is a wonderful line! I love that it isn’t locked into one historical time frame. Readers can find almost anything here. It’s exciting to see new Regencies, and I always love Westerns. If I can ever figure out what’s wrong with my Regency, I intend to submit it to LIH!

    Congratulations to all the new authors and to those who have recently joined the LIH family!

    Rachelle, is your A Royal Marriage set in Lydia?

    These look great! I’m always impressed with how much work goes into writing historicals. With my first LIH, A Royal Marriage, coming out in December, I found myself constantly researching little things–like when stained glass windows were invented (in time for my chapel to have one–yes!) and what kinds of saddles, swords, armor, and weddings they had way back when. Ah, but it was fun research!

    I love romance wheather contemporary or historical. They can be westerns, regency, as long as it is a great story and HEA. I have Yukon Cowboy by Debra Clopton in my TBR stack and looking forward to reading.

    Congratulations to all the new authors and keep on writing Love Inspired Books for us.

    I have read quite a few LIH books and love all I have read. My favourites would be the ones set in the west or on the parries. I don’t normally read regency but have enjoyed the ones I have read in this range. I loved Carla Capshaws ones set in early days rome.
    I am reading one of Linda Fords at present.

    I really like to read LIH stories. I like the settings of 1800-early 1900 yrs. Times of horse and buggy days and folks traveled by stagecoach or occasionally trains. I particularly like ones that have mail order brides or grooms too. the stories of the orphan trains and the children finding homes was really good. thanks to all the great LIH authors.

    Hope, yes, thank you for asking! A Royal Marriage is set in the fictional Christian Kingdom of Lydia in he year 801. It features the romance between King John of Lydia and Gisela, daughter of the Emperor Charlemagne–she was a real historical figure, but history records almost nothing of her life beyond her birth. Needless to say, I’ve filled in a few of the details! I can hardly wait for everyone to have a chance to read it!

    When I read or write a love inspired historical novel I feel at home with the story, and almost as if I am living in the era of time that the story took place.

    When I was a child, I used to listen to my great-great grandmother who taught Sunday school tell about when she was a child. I can still remember some of the things that she told about living in a sod house on the Nebraska prairie. She talked about corn husk dolls and all the things that I still enjoy reading about. She did not remember the Civil War, but her husband my great-great grandfather served and so she had his stories to tell. Oh, my those were some fantastic stories and glorious days.

    Fictional stories in the Love Inspired series are not the same as her stories, but, hey, they come close.
