The Historical Romance Collection
Historical Romance, a subgenre of romance novels, are set in a historical time period, particularly prior to 1950. WWII is often used as a standard to distinguish between Historical Romance and Contemporary Romance. Historical Romance novels can be set in any time frame in history and in any location. These novels take you back to the American Revolution, the Dark Ages, the French Revolution, or Medieval times, and can use varying amounts of history as their background. Some Historical Romances use the setting as a jumping off point, while others are much more in depth. Regardless of the time period or location, the hero and heroine experience issues of love and loss.
