If your result is Historical Romance…

When we learn history in school, it’s usually centered around the actions of men–all war and politics. If you want to really learn about what life was like for women in a previous age, you can find that and more in historical romance. Find out more about the clothes, the social standards, the jobs women held, what it was like to live before women’s suffrage and anything else about history that captivates your mind.

From classic bodice rippers to the more tame, historical romances can transport you to another place or time. You can find books with royalty, pirates and everything in between. Whether you like a historical romance that exists within our understanding of a previous time or like more of a fantasy world, there’s something for everyone.
