Historical Novels Span The Years
These historical romances are set anywhere from the 1200s to the 1500s.
Heather Grothaus is the author of “Never Kiss a Stranger” (Zebra), the first of a new trilogy. Lady Alys is determined that she is not going to marry the man her sister has chosen for her.
She takes off for the Foxe Ring ruins in hopes that, like the legend her mother told her, she would meet her true love there. And so it happens.
Piers Mallory stumbles into the circle, and Alys plans to stick to him like glue even as he goes into danger to right a wrong.
Romance readers who enjoy a good Scottish tale know they can’t go wrong with an Amanda Scott book.
Her latests are “Highland Master” and “Tempted by a Warrior,” both published by Grand Central. “Highland Master” is the first of the new series.
Lady Catriona Mackintosh discovers Sir Fin Cameron wounded in the forest near her home. The daughter of a Highland chieftain, Catriona doesn’t realize that Fin’s clan is an enemy of her own, and he doesn’t immediately realize who she is either. And then it’s too late because he is in love with her.
In “Tempted by a Warrior,” Lady Fiona Jardine’s womanizing husband never came back from the Scottish borderlands after the most recent series of battles. Her guardian is Sir Richard Seyton, who is having trouble remembering he should be protecting her instead of desiring her.
“Knight of Passion” (Grand Central) is by Margaret Mallory, another prolific romance writer. Revenge seems more important to Lady Linnet than her relationship with Sir James Rayburn, but luckily for her she gets a second chance at love, assuming she isn’t tempted to settle on old score, thus risking losing Jamie’s love again.
In Jackie Ivie’s “A Knight and White Satin” (Zebra), Payton Dunn-Fadden is trying to keep a secret. His wife, Dallis Caruth, knows it, and Payton is concerned that she may not keep it to herself. Theirs is an arranged marriage, and although they are attracted to one another, the two do nothing but argue. Will their passion be enough to get them through?
