Harlequin Genres - Historical Part I

Continuing with our Harlequin Books May marathon here are three books that are in the historical fiction genre. Today Harlequin publishes a historical fiction romance series which is the descendant of these early historicals.

Forty-four of the 481 Harlequin titles published between 1949 and 1959 are historical fiction. Three of the earliest follow. The Golden Feather (New York: Julian Messner, 1943) was published by Harlequin in 1950. Beyond the Blue Mountains (New York: Appleton-Century, 1947) and Emma Hart (London: Museum Press, 1949 as Our Dearest Emma) date from 1951. The three authors account for 10 (Plaidy 6, Prole 3, Kenyon 1) of the 43 Harlequin historicals.
