I usually read European historicals but I'm deep into Deadwood right now and would like to read some frontier type stories similar to it, but romancier.

Thanks in advance!

Ian McShane is great in Deadwood, isn't he?

My favorite author of historical western romance is Ellen O'Connell.

Some other authors you might try: Maggie Osborne, Lorraine Heath, Kaki Warner, Elaine Levine, and Alexis Harrington.

If you want to step outside of pure romance, Lonesome Dove is very good.

I loved Deadwood too and was so sad when it was over!

Some of my favorites :

I agree with Eggletina- ANYTHING by Ellen O'Connell
Never Love a Lawman - Jo Goodman
Texas Destiny - Lorraine Heath
And if you want something a little ( a lot?) raunchier - try Caine's Reckoning by Sara McCarty (the rest of the books in that series fell flat for me, but that first one....hoo boy!)

Fair Is The Rose by Meagan McKinney is my gold star standard for Western romances (well, the types I like to read). Wink

Thought of another one I enjoyed: Under the Desert Moon by Marsha Canham. I actually wish she'd try her hand at more Westerns.
