Top 6 Medieval Romance Novels

A fan of medieval romance for more than twenty years, I’ve racked up quite a collection of paperbacks and ebooks. And while modern authors like Monica McCarty and Kathryn LeVeque have filled large shoes of those that came before them in terms of quenching the thirst of medieval romance readers like myself, I still sometimes return to my reading roots.

These are six of the best medieval romance books than I can happily read over and over again.

Are there any here you haven’t read? Head over to Amazon to try one out. Fair warning, these links are affiliates:

A Kingdom of Dreams by Judith McNaught

The Prize by Julie Garwood

The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss

Defy Not the Heart by Johanna Lindsey

The Black Lyon by Jude Devereux

Which are your favorite “old-school” medieval or historical romance novels?


Best Period Dramas If You’re a Historical Romance Fan

I’ve mentioned some of my favorite medieval TV shows to get your Game of Thrones fix, but what can you watch if you’re looking for historical fiction on the tube? Luckily there seems to be an explosion of period dramas in the past few years. Historical romance on screen is scarce, but if you’re like me, the appeal of the genre extends beyond the HEA on TV.
