When I was asked if I would like to join the ETea team, I said, "Would I? Of course!" I love historical romance. There's something lyrical in period writing. Not only are historical time periods romantic (as long as you ignore the realities of poor hygiene and no indoor plumbing :) ), the language takes on a poetic lilt without being poetry. Whether it be the infused Scottish brogue of a Highlander or the proper phrasing of an English lord, the language draws us into a story and keeps us inthralled.
And not only the language...Gentlemen were chivalrous and women were ladies (except for those shrews who make for interesting secondary characters). The code of conduct for the historical periods lend themselves to great conflicts between men and women, and the costumes and decoration--well, just superb as a romantic backdrop.
So, what's your favourite time period? Regency? Elizabethan, Medieval, Middle Ages? As we celebrate TWRP's third year, what would you like to see us add to the ETea line-up?
