I've been lurking in the love/romance discussion board today.  You guys have some good fun here.  :)  I haven't read a good, steamy historical romance (or any romance for that matter) in awhile.  Anybody got any suggestions of books or deals that I can find here on PBS.

how steamy do you want? and do you just want recs that are available here? that 2nd requirement would rule out tons of erotic romance! I've just gotten around to historical myself but I think Stephanie Laurens writes pretty hot..I have a few of hers in my TBR pile.

I'll be back to take notes later after all the recs are here! :-) oh, and when you get some suggestions we have a thread on here somewhere-usually the first page somewhere-'is this book on your bookshelf' where you can post asking for deals on certain ones or just 'steamy historical' in general.

and yep we do have fun here! :-)

Well you can't go wrong with Julie Garwood's "The Wedding" and "Ransom" in my book.

I haven't read Virginia Henley in years but as I recall her books were very explicit for romance.

Beatrice Small's, Skye O'Malley Series can get rather hot, but I thought all were really good.

Jo Beverley's Mallorens series set in Georgian times is pretty good.  If you like steamy I highly recommend The Princes trilogy by Elizabeth Hoyt!

For good steamy historicals it doesn't get any better than the Last Arrow by Marsha Canham.  Based on the  Robin Hood legend and lotsa swashbuckling and exciting plot twists and turns. Extremely evil willans.

If you like steamy historical romance then you should read Lisa Kleypas

I agree with Sarah about Lisa Kleypas and will add Judith McNaught...'Whitney My Love' will have you hooked.

Thank you all for suggestions!!  So far I have it narrowed down to Virginia Henley's A Year and A Day, Elizabeth Hoyt's The Raven Prince, Jo Beverley's My Lady Notorious or the Through a Dark Mist by Marsha Canham.  Anybody got any of them on their shelf?
