My Favorite Historical Romance Novel Series for 2013

2013 was the year Courtney Milan took my breath away by releasing the 3 books and 2 e-novellas in her The Brothers Sinister series. Her The Duchess War was the first book I read and reviewed for 2013 and The Countess Conspiracy was one of the last books I read this year. It's an amazing series and I'm relieved to know that there's still Free's story to look forward to this 2014.

The cherry on top of this wonderful year of reading is Elizabeth Hoyt's release of 2 instalments in her Maiden Lane series. I really enjoyed Lord of Darkness and Duke of Midnight and I can't wait to read Apollo's story soon!

We said hello to a few promising new series in 2013:
- Robyn DeHart's very exciting Dangerous Liaisons series, which centers around the Jack the Ripper mythos,
- Jess Michaels's The Pleasure Wars, which has families locked in a centuries-old feud,
- Laura Lee Guhrke's exciting An American Heiress in London,
- Theresa Romain continues to showcase her deft hand at mixing humour and emotion in her Matchmaker series,
- and then there is Wendy Vella and her Langley sisters.

We also said a sad goodbye to these series, which were also completed this year:
- Tessa Dare's Spindle Cove series (which deserves all the awards and mentions) ended with Any Duchess Will Do. It was soooo hard to say goodbye to this series, but I'm glad Tessa has a new series coming in 2014 ^_^
- Renee Bernard also released the final instalment in her The Jaded Gentleman Series, Desire Wears Diamonds
- With the release of the youngest Windham's story, Lady Jenny's Christmas Portrait, Grace Burrowes also completes her stunning Windham Family series (she does have a novella coming out in 2014)
- Maggie Robinson also completed her The London List series with Lady Anne's Lover

It has been a truly memorable year of reading and reviewing for me. This is my penultimate list, which celebrates my favourite series for 2013:
