I have been thinking about this question for hours and I honestly cant tell you 1 historical that was my favorite. I love Stephanie Laurens, Julia Quinn and Eloisa James, and then I kept thinking and it seemed liked a million more authors popped in my head. I love the genre and I dont think that I have read one that I didnt like.

I rate all the books I read 1-4 stars. Of the 37 or so books I read in '08, 6 earned a 4-star rating. They were:

It Happened One Night Anthology;
Duke Most Wanted by Celeste Bradley;
Her Scandalous Affair by Candice Hern; Noble Intentions by Katie MacAlister; Murder on Nob Hill by Shirley Tallman; No Regrets by Michele Ann Young

Of those, I think my favorite was Her Scandalous Affair. Hern is my #1 favorite author.

Wow, tough call! I guess I'd say 'Simply Sinful' by Kate Pearce. Outstanding book.

It is so hard to pick just one!!

But, I'll pick Laura Lee Guhrke's Secret Desires of a Gentleman.

I also loved Jenna Peterson's Lady Spies trilogy! Merry(Meredith), Ana(Anastasia) & Emily lead very exciting and intriqueing lives!
