Are Historical Romances On Their Way Back?

After reading discussions about the state of the ever-changing climate here in the romance fiction market, I've come to the conclusion that readers are waiting for historicals to come back in a big way. I'd love to hear more. I think publishers are searching for historicals that take the subgenre in a fresh and exciting new direction. Wouldn't it be great if we could discover what that new direction might be?

What time periods are readers interested in reading about?
What sorts of plots are you intrigued by?
What about genre blends? Historical suspense? Paranormal historical? Historical fantasy?

Let's talk about it, brainstorm. It'll be fun.

You aren't the only one. Bookends (with Jessica Faust) posted about this today.
She also said editors are still looking for romantic suspense. Good for me! Yayyyy.
Are you going to revive your historical, Tawny?

Oh, and one of the best concepts for a paranormal historical was done by T. Sue Versteeg. She's got a few more planned so I'm hoping that paranormal historicals are going to be big.
