We’ve compiled a list of some of the most difficult old-school romance novels to track down. Some of these books we’re lucky to have in our collection, others we once had and sold or lost (how foolish!). And finally, there are those we’d pay our weight in gold to have.
These 15 Historical Romances published before 2000 either caused radical changes in the romance novel industry or they are so pivotal and unforgettable, they are must-reads. Please note, we at Sweet Savage Flame may not have read all books ourselves, but recognize their importance to the genre. Our aim is to review all books on this list if we haven’t already.
