    Oh you guys, I stinking love Diana Gabaldon. Have you noticed she has a thing for nipples though? She makes me blush. 🙂 I need to read the most recent Outlander book still!

    Oooo, I like Julia Quinn, too, Dixie. There are a few books of hers that I didn’t care for (The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever), but most of them I either liked or loved. And the ones I loved, I LOVED!

    Have you read any of Julie Garwood’s historical romances? I like a lot of hers, too. Fun list!

      no, i haven’t read Julie Garwood, but I’ll put her on my list. i have a hard time finding historical romance authors i love because I want the story to have a certain light-hearted feel and some are too heavy-handed. i’ll totally try hers, thanks!

      I love Julia Quinn, I’ve read most of her stuff, loved the bridgertons (except for the second brother, i don’t know why) and I’m loving her newest series, the Smythe-Smiths. Also, I just completed a book in the Splendid series, and I’m definitely gonna read the other three.

        I don’t like it when they are too heavy, either. And I totally agree, I didn’t like the second brother’s story in the Bridgerton series either. I really like How to Marry a Marquis by Quinn. That’s good! And I like Brighter Than the Sun, and What Happens in London a lot.

        I think you might like Julie Garwood. Her historicals usually have some humor. A number of her historicals are set in the 1200s in the Highlands, and I like those a lot. Particularly The Secret, The Wedding and Saving Grace. I do like her regency historicals, too: especially Castles.
