Favorite Author: Heather Graham, Prolific Author of Historical Romance

Writing as Heather Graham, Heather Graham Pozzessere--and most often with her historical novels, as Shannon Drake--Graham is a prolific author with over 75 million books in print. A New York Times best seller, she has written approximately one hundred romance novels, many of them historicals (my personal favorites). She has been honored with awards from Walden Books, B. Dalton, Georgia Romance Writers, Affaire de Coeur, Romantic Times—and the Lifetime Achievement Award from Romance Writers of America.

I spoke with Heather this year and she told me there is nothing she likes better than writing “a juicy historical.” She also told me she hopes to return to writing them in the future. I hope so, as she is one of my all time favorites—she’s in that handful of I consider the “best of the best.”

Listed below are my favorite historicals by her. Some are available only as used books, but she is also beginning to re-release them as new and e-books. All are well worth the effort to obtain them.
