Try Morgan Hawke's Call of the Wolf.  I really enjoyed it.

I'm not finding that.  Is it a novella?  I'm finding Kiss of the Wolf.

There's also Touch of Night by Susan Spencer Paul   which is only lightly paranormal ( magic/fairies) but it was a very good book. It's the first of a trilogy but I haven't read the other two yet!

Hmm, the Brenda Joyce books are somewhat historical.  Although part takes place modern day, part is historical.

Lucy Monroe has a series out called The Children of the Moon -- starts with Moon Awakening.

Ronda Thompson has a historical werewolf series too -- The Wild Wulfs of London. 

I believe Dawn Thompson (not to be confused with Ronda above!) has some too.

The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon sounds like it would fit the bill.  Haven't read these books, but my wife sure loves them!

Elizabeth Amber's Satyr series is historical.

Have to add Annaliese Evan's series about Sleeping Beauty.  Starts with Night's Rose.  This is more of an urban fantasy than a romance.  Set in 1750. 

Which leads me to Sarah A Hoyt.  Also a historical urban fantasy.  Well, actually two series.  One based on Shakespeare, one set in 1889.

Karen Marie Moning's Highlander books take part in both current times and historical.  Wish she'd write another.

Have you read Collen Gleason The Gardella Vampire Chronicles  they are historical parnormal romance set in london.  There are five books in the series all set around Victoria Gardella who is a vampire slayer who is also making her debut into society.  

I really enjoyed reading them I loved the characters Especially Sebastian.

I just bought Soulless by Gail Carriger today.  It looks really good and one of the Borders employees highly recommended it.

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" meets Jane Austen in this wickedly funny debut novel, which kicks off Carriger's new series set in an alternate 19th-century London that not only knows about vampires and werewolves, but accepts them into the upper tiers of society.

How about other Steampunk romances?  Any suggestions?

I've heard of Dru Pagliasotti's The Clockwork Heart, which has gotten good reviews.


Just saw Leanne Reene Hieber mentioned on Dear Author.  Victorian ghosts.
