    I didn’t realise Linda Howard had written any historical romances so I’ll have to try and track those down I’m a big fan of her work

  8. @ Libby13 Angel’s Creek by Linda Howard is a historical western. She also has two other historical westerns: A LADY OF THE WEST, and THE TOUCH OF FIRE.

  9. My favorite historical romance of all-time is A Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux.
