#WhyIWriteHistoricals? I love the research, and I love to share stories of strong women and the good-looking men who love them. For example, the pirate Mary Read learned her lover had been challenged to a duel. She confronted his opponent, challenged him herself, and slew him on the sand in an early-morning swordfight before he could hurt her sweetie. That's the kind of kick-ass woman I'm talking about!
There's a whole world of lovin' out there in your historicals section: romance from Regency England, Medieval France, Ancient China and more. Have you read a historical you enjoyed? Share the love with the hashtag #WhyIReadHistoricals and spread the word!
