Best Historical Christian Romance!

A Listmania! list by romancelvr (wisconsin)
The list author says: "Who doesn't love Christian Romance set in a historical setting? Not me, that's for sure! So many Christian Romance books though, seem to fall short and become sappy books that don't hold your interest (and often make you want to gag). I have compiled a list of my favorite historical Christian romance books. Some of the authors may not be your average, well known Christian romance author,(aka- Francine Rivers, Tracie Peterson) but you're sure to enjoy them. Hopefully this list will help with finding another great book to read. I always like a feisty heroine, a roguish hero, and a great love for God. Rest assured all the books here are clean. Enjoy!"
