Best Medieval Romances!

Who among us ladies hasn’t dreamed of a knight in shining armor? A valiant hero living in a time when honor prevailed and a woman of character who loved him. (I did say we were dreaming, right?) These historical novels will take you there.


Since the medieval period in European history spanned the 5th century to the 15th century, all the stories on my list take place during that time; however, some Scottish, Irish, and Viking historicals not listed here can be found on those specific “Best Lists” (links on the right side of my blog).
