Hi everyone,

I am looking for someone new to read. I pretty much only read historicals. I like plots where the couple get together, stay together, and fight what ever is going on together. I really hate when they are fight each other or are going out of their way to hurt each other. There is so much pain in real life that I do not need to have it in my fantasy world too.The authors I love and have read everything I can find of theirs are Julie Garwood, Dorothy Garlock, Jodi Thomas, Cindy Holby, Linda Lael Miller, Lyndsy Sands, Donna Fletcher, Carolyn Davidson, Julia Quinn. I am looking for people who write similarly to these authors. I am looking for authors new to me. Not just new authors.  Any suggestions will help.

Have you tried Mary Balogh, Stephanie Laurens (Bastion Club and Cynster series) or Amanda Quick?  Those are three of my favorite historical romance authors.
