I didn't even realise Highland Romance was a genre. :eek: Who else writes them apart from Gabaldon? (And I guess Sir Walter Scott...)

There are loads of them

Julia London has written a few, Hannah Howell, Connie Brockway, Marsha Canham, Julie Garwood and many others.

Here's a website which lists quite a few:

My Blog - Reading Adventures

All things Historical Fiction - Historical Tapestry

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

Nora Roberts has one or two as well. I really like her Rebellion.

Yes, there are LOADS of them. It's one of the few romance sub-genres that (my?) local bookstores keep stocked. Right now, it seems like EVERYTHING on the romance shelves is paranormal, Scottish, or mystery romance (or a historical that I've already read or rejected).
