I did not write A Serpent of Satan, but it is one of the books that came to mind when I started thinking about historical fiction.
I cut my teeth on Harlequin Romances, and remember vividly reading them very fast, and was obsessed with the covers. Here is one of my favorites, Henrietta’s Own Castle. It was mostly about her moving in and counting the linens in the cupboard of the home she’d inherited, but I loved it.
Hell, I studied French and went to Paris on the strength of my love for Under the Stars of Paris.

But my real question is, dear readers, is do you remember whether those romance authors wrote from only the female point of view? And has that trend changed? And does that trend hold or not for historical romances? I’d dearly love to know, so please drop me a line if you have any ideas.
