Recommendations for historical romance with mystery/suspense

Discussion started on

Hi Everyone
I'm thinking of taking my experience writing historicals and mysteries and combining them into something romantic. I used to love those gothic romances of a couple decades ago. Does anyone have recommendations for some good new ones? Or even classics.
Thanks.

You probably already know about Victoria Holt...and of course, I LOVE Lauren Willig's books (beginning with THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE PINK CARNATION).
