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).

Running from vile rumors and merciless ridicule, thirteen-year-old Nicole Beaumont flees her home in Parsons Valley, Georgia.

It was a lie, the worst part at any rate, but Chris̶ refused to deny the rumor. Chris, the boy who had been her best-friend-for-life, her soul mate, the one with whom she was supposed to spend her life, he allowed everyone to believe the rumor to be true.
Vowing to never trust another person as she had trusted Chris, Nicole leaves him behind and takes refuge at a boarding school in rural Pennsylvania.

A mad heiress and a false fiancé... The younger son of an earl, Dominic Renbourne is offered an irresistible bribe by his arrogant, identical twin brother, Kyle, who is heir to the earldom. All he must do is take Kyle's place at Warfield Manor, where he is to politely court Lady Meriel Grahame, the orphaned and vastly wealthy heiress Kyle is pledged to marry. The deception need only take a few weeks and no one will be the wiser because the fey Lady Meriel lives in a world of her own. The last thing Dominic expects when he arrives is to be entranced by a silent sylph whose ethereal beauty is as stunning as her passionate love for Warfield's flowers and fields and creatures. Until now, Meriel has kept her distance from normal society, spending her days at one with nature and safe from the nightmare that nearly destroyed her as a child. She is content to live alone, until the handsome intruder begins to inspire dreams of the world beyond her sanctuary. He understands her as no one else ever has--and because she lives outside society's rules, she sees no need to restrain her desire for the man who is surely her destined mate. Though Dominic’s sense of duty helps him control his longing for his brother’s future bride, Meriel’s untamed spirit proves more powerful than he can resist. In her garden paradise, passion binds them body and soul despite the agonizing consequences. Can Meriel forgive Dominic's deceit once she learns he is not Kyle, and can Kyle forgive the betrayal of the brother who had once been closer than his own shadow? Then past and present collide in a dangerous cataclysm that may bring destruction--or lasting love and a hope for beginnings.

Rule 2: Have an impeccable reputation.
Rule 3: Don't fall in love again.
AN HEIR TO SPARE by Rebecca Connolly
Widowhood has changed much for Anna—Lady Lyndham—but an unconventional heir to the estate was not something she had anticipated. Nor had she anticipated that he would have no intention of forcing her out, although he has every right to. And she certainly did not anticipate finding him handsome, charming, and unfailingly generous. But Ned Richards, the new Lord Lyndham, has a world of surprises in store for her, and not anticipating them will become quite the adventure.

Anxious to establish himself as a landed gentry in Somerset, Oliver is none too pleased to discover that a widow lives alone in a tiny run down cottage bordering his new property. The fact that she’s young and attractive only adds frustration to his sense of responsibility over her. And confound her, she challenges his every attempt to help manage her affairs.
A PROMISE FORGOTTEN by Heather B. Moore
Charlotte Ashford never thought she’d marry a vicar, and she never thought she’d find herself widowed with a young child to care for on her own.

But Lord Wilshore has never forgotten her, and he has never forgotten their promise made long ago. Charlotte would love nothing more than for Lord Wilshore to forgive her, but too much heartache and too much time might make that impossible. Friendship is all she can hope for, but that hope may be dashed as well.
