Laugh Your Past Off: An Exercise in Humorous Historical Romances
Hi there fellow coffee addicts and winos! While these historical romance authors all possess the ability to make you swoon with their amazing characterizations and intriguing stories, they can also make me laugh my butt off, and that is truly something I NEED in my life. Some of these ladies are quirky and witty with the perfectly placed sarcastic quip, while others put their characters in the funniest situations that make you flip the pages faster to see how everything will play out. Without further ado, here are my favorite hilarious historical romance authors. From the first chapter of the first book I read by this extremely talented woman, I had to put my drink down in order to avoid spilling it because I was literally laughing out loud.
The only thing better than historical romance at WhyToRead is funny historical romance novels. Georgette Heyer is another historical romance writer well known for her humorous situations and dialog. Today this list introduces you to more funny historical romance writers. Some of these books are a bit hotter than Pride and Prejudice, but with the humor still prevalent worth a read by the most conservative. What does a lady do when her sister is found in a compromising position with a gentleman? Maximillian is some sort of messed up version of a knight in shining armor. Compromised is an exciting historical novel fueled with intrigue, heat break, very funny dialogue and strong characters.

One of my most popular posts year after year is the mega list of funny Regencies. I think romantic comedies are universally popular, particular as a palate cleanser after a particular tear jerker or two.

I started reading historical romance a little over two years ago because I was sick and tired of reading sad and depressing books that were highly touted in literary circles, The New York Times Book Review , and book clubs. I once derided the entire romance genre as frivolous until I actually read one. I now only want happy endings, sparkling dialogue, and a passionate love story; even better: a book that can make me laugh and smile. I can always count on a lovely story and, with these three authors, laugh out loud humor. In this story, the first in the series, Lady Emma Avery is a wallflower whose name is falsely linked with the handsome and rich Duke of Ashbrooke in The London Weekly. They decide to keep their pretend engagement so that he might redeem his debauched reputation and find investors to fund his invention and she, in turn, can raise her social standing in society. Fun fact: the heroine is a librarian at the New York Public Library.
