There are so many fabulous reasons to love Historical Romance. Here at Kindle Love Stories, one of our favorite things about these books is the clothes. The fashions are undeniably amazing: the one-of-a-kind gowns in gorgeous fabrics, the accessories, the laces, and simply getting to use the word “damask.” The gentlemanly manners and constant chivalry of lords and dukes, the bad boys are called “rogues” – these are other great things about reliving a former era. What are some of your favorite things? In honor of our affection for these tales of love from long-gone times, we’ve put together a list of some fabulous historical reads. Make sure your #TBR list doesn’t run dry anytime soon with these hits:
