Historical Romance Stories

Modern love is swoon-worthy, but there’s nothing like when passion and the past unite in historical romance books. A Love So True’s historical romance book coverage highlights standout romances from the Medieval era, the Old West, the regency, the Victorian era, and other time periods. 

Are you an Outlander fan who wants to read about highland passion? Medieval romance books are full of sexy Scots, epic battles, and commanding alpha males. 

Love romances set within the context of societal pressure from the scheming ton? Then regency romances such as Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton books or the works of Sarah McLean, Lisa Kleypas, or Eloisa James will sweep you off your feet. And regency romance isn’t just hetero, either—the regency romance subgenre is also full of queer romance by writers like Olivia Waite, Cat Sebastian, and Tess Bowery. 

Or perhaps you love a man on horseback? Cowboy romance books set in the Wild West are filled with action and passion against an epic landscape. 

Regardless which era you prefer, our historical romance coverage recommends reads that will sweep you off your feet and soothe your heart.
