7 Historical Romance Novels
Inspired by Pop Culture Icons

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that the arrogant Mr. Darcy and his wet, clinging linen will always set our hearts a-flutter. But hold on to your bonnets because there’s a new crop of historical hotties hitting the shelves! Prepare to be whisked away to another era when you curl up with these heroes and heroines inspired by badass pop-culture icons.

The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare

Nicknamed “The Duke of Deadpool” by Dare, THE DUCHESS DEAL delighted readers with an irresistible blend of heat and humor. You’ll fall in love with the determined seamstress heroine; her hilarious rescue cat Breeches; and the scarred, cape-wearing Duke of Ashbury, who prowls London by night hunting down ne’er-do-wells.

Thief of Shadows – Elizabeth Hoyt

Inspired in part by Batman, the hero of this gripping, passionate romance leads a double life. By day he’s a mild-mannered headmaster at a home for foundling children, but when night falls he becomes the mysterious Ghost of St. Giles—protector, judge, fugitive.

How to Forget a Duke by Vivienne Lorret

This upcoming historical romance has an intriguing premise that marries The Bourne Identity with Emma. Instead of Jason Bourne, we’ll follow the adventures of Jacinda Bourne, a professional matchmaker who washes up on the beach at a duke’s cliffside estate with no memory of who she is or why she’s there. All she knows is that the duke’s kisses are unforgettable…

Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean

When MacLean teased that her latest historical romance series, The Bareknuckle Bastards, was inspired by Hulu TV hits Taboo and Harlots, Romancelandia gave a lusty cheer. Known for her heart-wrenchingly beautiful prose, MacLean is sure to give us the gritty and glorious happily-ever-after of our wildest dreams.

No Hiding for the Guilty by Vanessa Riley

What if superheroes were mortals who lived and loved during the Regency era? That’s the premise of the multi-author Heart of a Hero series. Riley’s lush, vivid NO HIDING FOR THE GUILTY is a stunning reimagining of The Incredible Hulk. She teams chef Isadel Armijo with hulking explosives expert Hugh Bannerman in a delicious tale of revenge, redemption, and the lasting power of love.

The Lawrence Brown Affair by Cat Sebastian

Your new obsession should be Sebastian’s mesmerizing, deeply romantic books. In THE LAWRENCE BROWN AFFAIR she pairs a brilliant mad scientist with a charming swindler who challenge each other at every turn. With nods to The Thomas Crown Affair and Beauty and the Beast this masterfully crafted tale will linger in your memory long after the last page is finished.

A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas

Bring on ALL the gender flipped classics! With her Lady Sherlock Series, Thomas gifts us with the extraordinarily clever consulting detective Charlotte Holmes, who is aided in solving crimes by the capable Mrs. Watson. In A CONSPIRACY IN BELGRAVIA, murder, mayhem, mystery, and unexpected marriage proposals make for a scintillating page-turner. The game is afoot!

Wanted: Governess for duke's unruly children

Edgar Rochester, Duke of Banksford, is one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in England, but when it comes to raising twins alone, he knows he needs help. The only problem is the children have chased away half the governesses in London. Until the clever, bold, and far-too-enticing Miss Mari Perkins arrives.

Lost: One heart to an arrogant duke

Mari knows how to wrap even the most rebellious children around her finger. But their demanding, wickedly handsome father? He won't be quite so easy to control. And there's something else she can't seem to command. Her heart. The foolish thing beats so wildly every time the duke is near.

Found: A forbidden passion neither can deny

As his employee, Mari is strictly off-limits. But what if she's the one breaking all his rules? In the game of governess versus duke, how can Edgar maintain his defenses when the only thing he wants to do is let the tempting beauty win?
