Historical Romance

Seeing as how I am a fan of Bertrice Small's work, I am making a post about the specific novels of hers that I love (well at least of the ones I've read, as she has quite a few that I have not read yet). My Mother is very big fan and I would have to say the both my sister and I became fans because my mother owned every book ever written by Ms. Small. We were not allowed to read them until we were older as they have adult content as I have stated before.

They are so amazingly descriptive - Ms. Small always describes the places and people with such detail that you could swear that if you closed your eyes you could picture the scene perfectly.

I hope you will find something in the selection that I provide that will tickle your fancy and get you to pick up one of her books. Most of her books are all historical for time lines, but bring you to different countries where you will learn about their customs. The story lines range from faeries and knights to pirates and concubines. She does have some contemporary romances out there, but I have not read them yet.

To view the entire list of books that Ms. Small has written please follow this link to her bookshelf.
