10 Tropes That Make Historical Romance Awesome

Today we're thrilled to have not one but three authors—Gayle Callen, Laura Lee Guhrke, and Caroline Linden—weigh in on one of our favorite genres, historical romance. Gayle's latest release, Redemption of the Duke, is out today, and its hero is a duke (of course!) with secrets who needs redeeming. Laura Lee Guhrke's How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days pairs an American heiress with a duke, and is also out today, while Caroline Linden's It Takes a Scandal offers a love triangle between a wealthy heiress and two very scandalous gentlemen. The ladies are here to discuss what makes historical romance so awesome. Thanks, Gayle, Laura Lee, and Caroline!

1) Dukes. Now come on, when you see the word “Duke” in a title, doesn’t your heart speed up? There’s just something about powerful men at the top of the aristocracy, brought to their knees by love, that just makes us all swoon. That’s probably why I’ve used “Duke” in the title 3 times in my 21 historical romances, including my most recent, Redemption of the Duke. –Gayle
