If, like me, you’re still not over season 2 of Bridgerton, here is a list of my favorite historical romance novels to get you through:

1. Martha Waters: TO MARRY AND TO MEDDLE – marriage of convenience, a devilish cat, lots of fun and romance

2. Evie Dunmore: PORTRAIT OF A SCOTSMAN – a brooding hero, suffragists, and the Scottish wilderness

3. Manda Collins: AN HEIRESS’S GUIDE TO DECEPTION AND DESIRE – enemies to lovers, a mystery to solve

4. Sarah MacLean: NINE RULES TO BREAK WHEN ROMANCING A RAKE – rulebreaker protagonist, rake hero, hilarious adventures

5. Tessa Dare: THE GOVERNESS GAME – opposite attracts, two too smart children, bookish heroine
