Favorites Friday - Historical Novels
June 21, 2013

Today I'm traveling to the Historical Novel Society North American Conference, and in honor of that I've decided to list just a few of my favorite Historical authors. They may write Historical Mysteries, or Historical Romance, Time-Slips or simply straight Historical Fiction. But in whatever shape or form, they are fabulous.

Tasha Alexander - Her Lady Emily series is smart and entertaining, and the title character travels to some fascinating locations in the late Victorian era. The latest, Death in the Floating City, was set in Venice.

Jennifer Ashley - She writes fun, but emotionally impactful romances. My favorite - The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie. The title character, the hero, has what we now call Asperger Syndrome, and the scenes from his point-of-view are alternately side-splitting hilarious and downright heartbreaking.

Diana Gabaldon - She writes the beloved, time-slip Outlander series, which absolutely must be started with the first novel, Outlander. Be warned, you will fall in love with the hero of the series - James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser, or as we all know him - Jamie. 

Tracy Grant - She writes a series of novels set during and after the Napolenic Wars, featuring the indomitable Malcolm and Suzanne Rannoch - both of whom are married spies, but for opposing sides. I recommend starting with Vienna Waltz

Susanna Kearsley - I absolutely adore her time-slip novels, which travel between the past and the present. Her latest is The Firebird.

Deanna Raybourn - I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I absolutely adore her Lady Julia Grey series, which starts with Silent in the Grave.

Charles Todd - The writing duo pens novels set during post WWI. There Inspector Ian Rutledge series is fabulous, and begins with A Test of Wills.
