Like shifting sands on a beach, so are the top-ten historical romance authors on Amazon.  Much of the move has to do with sales, of course, having pushed them upward into higher ranks.

Okay, who are the current ladies that write the stories that make you swoon prior to Valentine’s Day?  Here are the top ten authors and their most popular books as of February 2018.  It’s interesting to note that only two authors who were on our December list remain in the top ten – Christi Caldwell and Bridget Barton.  As you can see, marketing is everything.
