Definition of "Historical Romance Genre": This is a very popular subgenre in the massive Romance category. As with other subgenres of the Romance category, these books typically include the common elements of a romance ebook. So, the love and relationship between two people is central to the story, they have to overcome sometimes seemingly insurmountable obstacles to fall in love, but they do end up in love at the end of the stories. Authors in the historical romance subgenre have another task in their writing, however, in that they need to set their stories not in contemporary times, but in times that typically are over a century in the past. Thus, if you appreciate history and the details specific to other times in our world as well as a love story this is a fantastic subgenre for you.
Some examples of bestselling ebooks in the Historical Romance genre are Diana Gabaldon (Outlander), Petra Durst-Benning (The Glassblower), Tracy Brogan (Highland Surrender), and Danielle Steele (Pegasus).

After agreeing, she discovers that his carnal appetite includes a preference for the taboo. When she expresses her reservations, he offers an even more outrageous proposition—he will owe her a hundred pounds if she fails to spend at his hands. Can she win the wager or will her body succumb to the wicked attentions of Lord Rockwell?

The past has shown him that some women aren’t to be trusted, but Abbie is different. Isn’t she?
There are those who do not want the mill rebuilt and seek to stop Abbie at all costs. Even if that means harming a child. With Tucker at her side, they must retrieve the child and return home to finalize his adoption.
