My preferences... - Josei or Shoujo - No yaoi or yuri - No hentai, lolicon, shotacon
Read and Liked / Currently Reading... Red River, Crazy Girl Shin Bia, Fushigi Yuugi, Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden, Goong, Shadow of Visions, and Masca. The manga could have fantasy (I don't mind as long as it's a historical romance).
I'd definitely recommend Mademoiselle Butterfly (but I cry every single time I read this, so beware!) From Far Away (Kanata Kara) is quite a bit like FY Emma is good, and Stepping on Roses Also Bride Story (same author as Emma) is amazing O_O
