6 Powerful Historical Reads to Transport You Back In Time
by Karen Green
Historical romance offers an escape like no other, as it provides not only a sweeping, sensational love story to get lost in, but the opportunity to whisk readers away to explore and be immersed in an era and a place long past.
These novels will take you back in time—but the stories are timeless. Whether set in the Scottish Highlands during the eighteenth century or Europe in the aftermath of World War I, the tension, drama and romance never fade, from “How do you do?” to happily ever after.
