For 'classic' books, Elswyth Thane and Inglis Fletcher - awesome reads. Thane did the Williamsburg series and Fletcher's the Carolina series.

I don't know a lot of more recent authors/titles for this time period as I tend to prefer Regency and Medieval these days.

Let us know if you connect with any of the books, and how you enjoy them. They're classic historical novels, though there is romance in them but not the steamy stuff we get these days.

Pamela Clare.  The Blakewell/Kenleigh series:

Sweet Release

Carnal Gift

Ride the Fire

And the MacKinnon’s Rangers series:



The MacKinnon books are good.  Sort of loosely based on The Last of the Mohicans with Daniel Day-Lewis.  Out of the Blakewell/Kenleigh books, Ride the Fire was far and away superior to the other two.  And there's also A Wild Yearning by Penelope Williamson. Not her best stuff, IMO, but if you enjoy the Pamela Clare books, you'll like it.

Rebel Dreams by Patricia Rice and Nobody's Angel by Karen Robards

Jacqueline Marten did a series set Britain and American during the Revolutionary War-In the Long Green Grass was one. 


For the old Tapestry imprint-Caryn Cameron(I think that's right) had several-Freedom's Flame is one


And Kimberley Cates(who writes contemporary now) had several set in early America


Really enjoyed the Pamela Clare's as well.
