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).

NHL player Maverick Blades could fall in love with anyone...
But he had to fall for a woman who falls under the Bro Code as untouchable—his best friend’s beautiful ex, Daisy-Mae Ray.
Anyway, he’s pretty sure she’d steer clear of a guy like him since the papers have made a mess of his reputation. Good guy, wrong place, wrong time...
Daisy-Mae knows Maverick isn’t the man everyone believes he is. But how can she, a small town nobody, fix his image and help his team?
She can’t. Except she just told off his team’s publicists, demanding they fix Maverick’s image.
And now she's been hired to deal with him.
No problem. Other than the fact that she's got a giant crush on him and kind of just set things up so he's to date her as a publicity stunt. Yeah, no problem for someone who wants something real.
Laugh, cry and fall in love along with these two meant-to-be characters as they stumble their way toward true love. This feel-good romance is set in the same charming small town world as Jean Oram's The Cowboys of Sweetheart Creek, Texas series. Enjoy! (These are slow burn, closed door hockey romances.)

I bring you tales of Lords who went to a “copper hell” for an evening’s entertainment and lost their fortunes through nefarious means. What will they be willing to do to get it back?
Gambling was an accepted pastime during Regency times and people would bet on anything!

While wealthy men gambled in clubs, players could depend upon an honest game but there were also less reputable places to play. People from all classes gambled in the “copper hells” but cheating was common.

"Shiveringly Gothic."—New York Times Book Review
A PopSugar and BookBub Best Romance of 2022!
A London heiress rides out to the wilds of the English countryside to honor a marriage of convenience with a mysterious and reclusive stranger.
Tall, dark, and dour, the notorious Captain Jasper Blunt was once hailed a military hero, but tales abound of his bastard children and his haunted estate in Yorkshire. What he requires now is a rich wife to ornament his isolated ruin, and he has his sights set on the enchanting Julia Wychwood.
For Julia, an incurable romantic cursed with a crippling social anxiety, navigating a London ballroom is absolute torture. The only time Julia feels any degree of confidence is when she's on her horse. Unfortunately, a young lady can't spend the whole of her life in the saddle, so Julia makes an impetuous decision to take her future by the reins—she proposes to Captain Blunt.
In exchange for her dowry and her hand, Jasper must promise to grant her freedom to do as she pleases. To ride—and to read—as much as she likes without masculine interference. He readily agrees to her conditions, with one provision of his own: Julia is forbidden from going into the tower rooms of his estate and snooping around his affairs. But the more she learns of the beastly former hero, the more intrigued she becomes...

Sophie quickly develops deep affection for Kat, Martin's silent five-year-old daughter, but Martin's odd behavior leaves her with the uneasy feeling that something about her newfound situation isn't right.
Then one early-spring evening, a stranger at the door sets in motion a transforming chain of events. Sophie discovers hidden ties to two other women.

A deadly mission to hunt down the resistance's top soldier will make SS Officer Jonas Amsel question everything he kills for...
Jonas Amsel and Avalina Keller, devoted Nazis and best friends, have a bright future in Hitler’s Third Reich.

No Nazi who has pursued Black Fox One has returned alive, but Jonas is determined and confident. Capturing Black Fox One might bring him one step closer to finding Ava.
But while he is hunting Black Fox One, Jonas makes a shocking discovery, forcing him to make an agonizing decision. He must choose between his love for the Reich and his heart, torn between the lies he has been taught all his life and the new truth before him.

Reviewers Adore Black Fox One
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “A terrific, fast paced story that will grab and hold your attention! The story is suspenseful and I could not put this book down! A great read. I highly recommend this book.”– NetGalley Reviewer
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Elyse did it again. This historical fiction was phenomenally written, heart-wrenching, and action-packed. You start out with a young Ava and Jonas and watch as their relationship blooms. There's confusion, separation, heartbreak, and an amazing redemption. Truly a wonderful story, I cannot wait to read more.”– Goodreads reviewer
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Hoffman delivers an incredible twist and Jonas uncovers a truth that tears apart his life and what he has always believed to be true. He is left with the dilemma of staying loyal to his country and the Nazis or being true to his heart and his love for Ava. Hoffman very cleverly shows through her characters that what we think we know and what we believe to be true can be subterfuge and that we need to be careful not to lose our ability to question and hold others to account. Much of the story could be applied to the world today. A fantastic read and a fantastic author.”– Goodreads reviewer
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “The story was unique and a fascinating twist on WWII novels. I loved how both sides were represented…I then realized how perfectly I was set up for Jonas’ deep introspection into Jews and the powerful change that came over him. Well played. Do you follow your heart or your family? Where do your loyalties lie? Could you turn your back on everything you’ve ever known for love?”– NetGalley Reviewer
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “An engaging story of lost love and the long road of redemption.” – NetGalley Reviewer

A steamy, small-town, accidental pregnancy, one-night-to-forever standalone romantic comedy by the USA Today bestselling author of Sleepover.
What Doug finds in the secret compartment of his new red Corvette will forever change his life. It will also change Catherine’s. Doug and Catherine come from two different worlds. Catherine’s world is one of privilege and wealth. Doug grew up dirt poor and full of envy of others who had the things that he wanted but could not have. His goal was to one day have all the things he coveted. Their worlds collide when Catherine, VP of a large New York City marketing firm, hires Doug. As soon as Doug learns of Catherine’s wealth, he sees Catherine as his ticket to all the things he covets. After a whirlwind courtship, they are married.
Poor boy meets rich girl should have resulted in “happily ever after” — not exactly. Doug quickly learns he also covets independence. Events begin to unfold in each of their lives. For Doug, it is his mysterious discovery in the secret compartment of the Corvette. For Catherine, it is a business meeting with Alex Droxell at the Osprey Cove Lodge. When Catherine enters the beautiful and serene lodge, it’s as though she is entering another place and time. The lodge is an escape from the nightmare she is living back home. Follow the twists and turns of Book 1 of the Osprey Cove Lodge Series. Follow Doug and Catherine’s story to see if there is a “happily ever after” and with whom.
It appeared to Catherine as though she had just approached Mr. Darcy’s Pemberly in all its magnificence. Now she knew how Elizabeth felt at her first sighting of Pemberly. But unlike Elizabeth, Catherine thought, there would be no happy ending. This would not become her home one day, as Pemberly had become Elizabeth’s, and live happily ever after. Catherine did not covet the house that lay before her. In fact, Catherine was wealthy enough to buy a home like it, if she so desired. What Catherine did long for was what Pemberly represented to all Jane Austen lovers — the culmination of a beautiful love affair. Catherine was not naive enough to expect her life to be storybook in nature. But she did not expect her life with Doug to disintegrate into shambles just two years after marrying him. She did not understand why it was happening. She did not know how to fix it.
