Will this list never end? I’m thinking that I may post the last thirty tomorrow, just so I can be finished and move on to other things.
61. The Secret by Julie Garwood
Medieval published in 1992
Probably read this one during my Garwood glom, but they all blend together at this point.
62. Something Wonderful by Judith McNaught
European historical published in 1988
I have no idea which McNaught this is, probably read it when I glommed her years ago.
63. The Proposition by Judith Ivory
European historical published in 1999
Have not read it, atlhough I am assured of its brilliance.
64. Ransom by Julie Garwood
Medieval published in 1999
Have not read it, as it was published long after my Garwood glom.
65. Passion by Lisa Valdez
European historical published in 2005
Read it when it was published because all the buzz surrounding it; there’s a lot of purple prose and it was popular that year, but it hasn’t really stood the test of time for me.
66. The Last Hellion by Loretta Chase
European historical published in 1998
Haven’t read it, not likely to.
67. Love in the Afternoon by Lisa Kleypas
European historical published in 2010
I have no plan to read this book any time soon. Am a little surprised that such a recent book is so high — have that many people read it, in comparison to some of the old classics on this list?
68. To Beguile a Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt
European historical published in 2009
Read it and enjoyed it.
69. Where Dreams Begin by Lisa Kleypas
European historical published in 2000
Another Kleypas EH that I haven’t read.
70. Devil’s Cub by Georgette Heyer
Traditional Regency of sorts published in 1932
Heyer doesn’t really work for me, despite the fact that she is considered one of the foundational writers for genre romance, particularly regency-set romance.
Wow, no single book in this installment was set outside of England and all were historicals. Apparently there are no other romantic settings available for writers.
