Hey Folks,

Can anyone recommend good books set in Boston at any time, or in Colonial America?

Thanks!

I second Danelle Harmon's historicals.
Jane Goodger is another author who grew up in Massachusetts and has written books set in the area.

The contemporaries:
Cindy Gerard - Under the Wire (partially)
Jessica Bird - The Billionaire Next Door
Julie Wright - Cross My Heart

PB Ryan's Nell Sweeney Historical Mystery series is set in post Civil War Boston. There are six books in the series and it has a romantic sub-plot that runs through the series. You'll have to read all six to see the romance all the way to its HEA.

Suzanne Brockmann's Born to Darkness is set in a futuristic Boston, I think.

There's also Cara McKenna's Willing Victim, though that one is erotica, not romance. I think she's working on another book set in Boston.

Willing Victim by Cara McKenna - an erotic novella.

The author is Bostonian. Even if you are not into erotica, please do give this one a try - you will not be disappoited!

I enjoyed this series very much, and if you've ever lived in Boston (as I did), it's fun to see how the city and its history play an important role. It's definitely best to read in order -- the mysteries are self-contained, but the romance and the character arcs are more meaningful if you read them in the order in which they occur. The hero is a very wounded soul, and one of the pleasures of the series was to watch him as he struggles (sometimes more successfully than other times) to heal.

Roxanne St. Claire has several books set in Boston including TAKE ME TONIGHT which is the third in her Bullet Catchers series.

All three of her Guardian Angelinos trilogy have some action set in Boston. They are: EDGE OF SIGHT, SHIVER OF FEAR and FACE OF DANGER. My favorite is FACE OF DANGER.

That's good to know. My daughter is going to Boston with an academic group for a week this summer and we decided to all go since none of us have been there before. We're looking forward to visiting the city.

Charlotte MacLeod's Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn mysteries. They are cozies that take place in Boston. These are great fun and are reissues of books written in the 80's and early 90's. I believe THE FAMILY VAULT is the first. Someone recommended these on the mystery thread.

I'm reading Almost Like Being in Love by Steve Kluger, which opens in Boston. Delightful gay novel -- don't know yet if it has a HEA and counts as a romance, but I will be extremely pissed if it doesn't. Laughing

I second, My Reckless Heart by Jo Goodman. One of my favorites by this author.
Also...The MacGregor Brides
The MacGregor Grooms, both by Nora Roberts.

Happily Ever After by Tanya Anne Crosby. Fun book.

I love this novella and wish the author would write a full-length novel for the main characters. The story ended too soon for me.

Janet Evanovich's Wicked series (two books so far, Wicked Appetite and Wicked Business) is set in Boston and nearby Salem. The Connor Grey series by Mark del Franco (five or six books now, the first one is Unshapely Things) is set in Boston as well.

However, both are urban fantasy rather than romance.
