I've never read any of those authors, so I don't know how they compare, but have you ever read the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon?

You might want to post this in the Love and Romance Forum. Here's a link to one of its threads to get you started: Historical Romance for your WL. The Historical Fiction Forum folks will undoubtedly have suggestions as well (though they generally care more about the history than the romance -- so depends what you're looking for).

ETA: In a recent thread on the HF forum (HR vs. HF), there was a discussion of whether historical romance belonged in romance or historical fiction -- they basically concluded that there was a lot of overlap -- so worth posting there.

I like Sara Donati's Into the Wilderness series.

The absolute best two are, IMHO  Penelope Williamson and Laura Kinsale.   After those two,  I would say Madeline Hunter, Elizabeth Hoyt and Mary Connealy.
