I love a great historical romance every now and then. It’s such fun to get a glimpse into the past while at the same time reading a well constructed romance. Affectionately known as “bodice rippers”, these books can be set in any time frame in the past.
The Wallflower Series by Lisa Kleypas is an excellent historical series that makes you want to read the next book as soon as you finish the current book. The story is about four young Victorian ladies who are sick of being snubbed and overlooked by London’s bachelors. While the plot is a straightforward romance, the series is about making an advantageous marriage in a society that only cares about aristocratic titles and wealth.
Here are the books in order:
Secrets of a Summer Night
It Happened One Autumn
Devil in Winter (my favorite in the series!)
Scandal in Spring
