HISTORICAL ROMANCE

Richly textured, emotionally intense novels set across a wide range of historical periods - ancient civilisations up to and including Second World War.
 
Historical Key Elements

  • Strong and dynamic characters with believable, relatable conflicts, appropriate for the time in which they are set.
  • Central relationship as the driving force of the story.
  • Historical research and accuracy are essential to bring the world to life! But remember to focus on the romance.
  • All levels of sensuality are considered. From the tingling sensation you get from a wet-shirted Regency hero, to the explicit bedroom romps of Tudor times, whatever the level of sensuality, chemistry and sexual tension are vital.
  • Variety is key in this line – we're happy to publish stories from ancient Greece to the Wild West and all the way through to the mid-twentieth century.
  • Word length: 75,000

Historical

This is where the alpha hero began! From a rake with a wicked glint in his eye to a gasp-inducing muscled warrior brandishing a dagger, a gorgeous kilted Highlander or a rugged, hard-working cowboy, there's a man for everyone! Heroines should emotionally challenge the hero, and inspire reader sympathy, whether they are spirited and willful, an innocent governess or a sword-wielding Samurai . . .

Historical is…

The strength of Russell Crowe's Gladiator, the sizzling sensuality of The Tudors and Rome and the scandalous society drama of Downton Abbey!
