I just finished reading To Beguile and Beast and have really enjoyed it!  I feel sad now I've finished all of her booklist and have to wait til November for the next upcoming novel. Its tough finding a good historical romance novels lately...Any recommendations?

I am not a big historical romance reader or I should say a selective historical romance reader.  However I just read a book from Lynsay Sands - maybe it is more regency romance LOL.  It is called Devil of the Highlands.  I didn't think I would like it but it was in front of me so I gave it a whirl.  I actually liked it.  Now I know she writes alot of the vampire book/paranormal but she also writes historical/regency romances.  I like her writing style so I might try another book from her (that isn't paranormal related).  Mary Balogh  is good

A Hint of Wicked by Jennifer Haymore.  Great first book.  Usually when the heroine has to choose between 2 men one is clearly wrong for her or a villain. But in this book I wanted her to keep both of them.

I don' t read a lot of historicals but just finished A Knight to Remember by Christina Dodd and really liked it. Once  a Knight comes before it and I couldn't find that one so read the other. I followed along ok - I think the couple in Once a Knight were a generation earlier though not sure - the heroine in this one was 'fostered' by that couple I think so they're mentioned a couple of times.

I've liked a couple by Teresa Medeiros - Charming the Prince and Bride and the Beast. Reading Wild by Jill Barnett and liked Carried Away by this same author. Also liked the few Amanda Quick books I read. Read Through a Dark Mist by Marsha Canham and it was kinda violent for me but she's a great writer - felt like I was in the middle of the action. others were posting how they liked one of her pirate books but cant' remember the name of it. I also liked Thunder & Roses by Mary Jo Putney.

I was a big historical romance fan but I've found myself reading less and less of them lately. Besides Elizabeth Hoyt, the only historical romance authors that are still automatic buys for me are Sylvia Day and Loretta Chase.

Liz Carlyle, Lisa Kleypas, Stephanie Laurens and Nicole Jordan used to be on that list but I've been disappointed in a few of their recent releases, so I now wait for reviews before I buy them new. Lorraine Heath, Suzanne Enoch, Karen Hawkins , Mary Balogh, Sophia Nash and Sabrina Jeffries can be good but they seem to be hit or miss IMO, so  I usually wait and request them at pbs.  I also have most of Barbara Pierce, Jacquie D' Alessandro  and Julie Anne Long's books but I just haven't been in the mood to read them yet.

Didn't like TBAB myself... was way too similar to The Raven Prince by her... it was astonishing how close the characters and situation was.
