Is there a way to tell the difference between historical Romance Fiction and actual historical fiction? Does this sound confusing? Sorry, it just seems like when I search for "Historical Fiction" i.e. Amazon, I get so much Romantic Historical Fiction.
Try doing a tagmash here! "Historical fiction -romace" gives a list which should be more to your taste:
If it has a picture of a well-muscled man brandishing a sword on the cover it's probably a military action adventure, but if it has a picture of a well-muscled man brandishing a sword on the cover it's probably a romance....!
You could also try "-Regency" or "-Tudor" - that gets rid of most of the bodice-rippers.
Try "Historical Fiction" and perhaps add a country or a time period or event (e.g., World War II). Might narrow down the field.
#3 Thorold - love your sense of humor.
#2,3,4 ha ha...ya'll are funny. Good information from everyone. I DON'T want the "romance part"...just historical fiction. Seems like when I do a search on kindle, etc. I get more "romance" than "historial"....will try regency, tudor or country. thanks so much!
