what are some romance novels that you would recomend
emi - October 22, 2008 02:34 AM (GMT)
It depends on what you're looking for. Are you looking for teen romances? Or like stuff that makes you go "omg I just blushed so hard my face is still red 20 minutes later" romance novels?
As for teen I loveeeeee the Twilight saga. There's also Vampire Academy. I also liked Perfect You.

Oh I also like Twilight!!! Nicholas Sparks books are really good too. He's the guy that wrote A Walk to Remember and The Notebook.

Sarah Dessen's books are ABSOLUTELY a MUST-READ. Her works are realistic xD and definitely romantic. It's more of a teen novel :3

i recommend anything by sherrylin kenyon. they are all supernatural and very smutty but also very good.
mummypanda - December 25, 2008 08:28 PM (GMT)
JANE AUSTIN - PRIDE AND PREJUDICE or any other of her books. The time travellers wife (i think they are making this into a film soon). Also Cross Stitch series by Diana Gabaldon which is fantastic!!!!
charmzf - December 25, 2008 09:34 PM (GMT)
I like historical romances. Some of the authors that are good are Julie Garwood, Lynn Kurland, Victoria Alexander.

I love Julie Garwood~! Jennifer Crusie is a bit more modern, though, if you like the modern romance style. >.>

if you are under 25,
twilight is good.
I really feel american romance arthors are for more older people
Julie Garwood, read her historical romance(a lot better than the crap she writes now)
there are funny with heroine who are smarter and cleverly then everyone including them expect them to be and hero with hearts of gold.
Nora Roberts, is great about her characters and the fantasy trilogy are great, read the KEY TRILOGY
Key of Light (2003), Key of Knowledge (2003) , Key of Valor (2004),
about three women who are destined to help 2 gods.
Morrigan's Cross (September 2006)
Dance of the Gods (October 2006)
Valley of Silence (November 2006)
A supernaturel serie with a loner sorcerer, a modern day witch, a shape shifting knight, a urban vampire hunter, a wise princess and the vampire who helps them hunt down what made he.
Lisa Kleypas is also great because unlike most historical romance writers, she writes about common born man who made themselves and the uncommon females who falls for them.
read the the wallflower series
squeaky - December 26, 2008 07:39 AM (GMT)
For teenagers romance, I would say Twilight... because Bella and Edward started their romance in high school ^^
However for romance novels, authors like Julie Garwood, Lisa Kleypas and Julia Quinn, they're great... I always like Linda Howard and Amanda Quick because they write pretty good thriller romance novels...
akinoshigure - December 26, 2008 12:39 PM (GMT)
Julie Garwood, especially her historical stuff. I loved the stuff set in Scotland.
Judith McNaught, has a good mix of historical and contemporary stuff.
Jane Ann Krentz, her stories are short but I like her characters.
Dara Joy, a bit smutty but really fun reads
Emma Darcy, a harlequin writer but her book "Craving Jamie" really pulled at my heart
Jude Deveraux, she tends to write story about this one family, but it's just interesting how things piece each other.
I recommend also picking up random harlequin novels. there are new ones every month. find sort of a theme you like and then read the back and try to find it. I mean, when I was into the whole Arabic thing, I always made sure to buy the books about that. You'll always have something new to read if you pick these up. In general, all these stories tend to be the same in plotline... But I just found the stuff from the above writers suit my taste so tried to collect them all.
nonobi - December 27, 2008 12:26 AM (GMT)
Anne Rice to some point...
pankekku - December 27, 2008 08:12 AM (GMT)
Judith McNaught's historical romances are really really nice, and in some way, they're all somewhat in the same societal setting. if you guys are going to read it, read A Kingdom of Dreams first, because that's where it all starts - for her historical romance novels anyway.
I'm starting to read the Bridgerton series from Julia Quinn, and it's pretty good so far~
Gaelen Foley's Prince Charming is pretty good too, but it's the last book out of 3 that are somewhat related,and it's also the first one that i've read of her... i'm starting on the first one out of the 3 (A pirate prince) and it's... /sigh :wuv

Julie Garwood or Amanda Quick aka Jayne Ann Krentz are good for beginners. Their stories are fun and comedic. Julie Garwood's historical are much more better than her modern days thrillers. Amanda Quick/JAK is fun whatever she writes as the plot is rather the same everytime.
There's Johanna Lindsey with her regency series about the Malory family. Sexy and funny.
Lots of historical romances by Lisa Kleypas are worth reading. I love her "Dreaming of you" which is the sequel to "Then came you" (also very good). It's drama with hot-burning-the-sheets sex scenes and very romantic.
Otherwise, for contemporary romances, if you want something a bit crazy and yet moving, try Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I love her Chicago Stars series. Her stories look crazy at first with characters often wacky, but you'll be surprised by how deep they are in fact. I love most when in her books, she makes me laugh till my tummy hurts and the scene afterward, she makes me cry my eyes out.
And for fantasy, I'll second Sherrilyn Kenyon for her Dark-Hunter series. If you aren't afraid of erotic romance, I'll also recommend Lora Leigh's Breed series and anything by Angela Knight. For good erotic romance novellas whatever the genre, read the Secrets anthologies published by Red Sage. Even if you don't like them all, in every anthology, you should find at least one novella that you'll like.
aoiken - December 27, 2008 06:36 PM (GMT)
my favorite is Jane Austen - a classic romance author!
sleepies - December 28, 2008 06:46 AM (GMT)
hmm there were some good suggesstions here
but if u haven't read pride and prejudice it's a must read.
luv_lucy - December 28, 2008 08:26 PM (GMT)
hmm...i really really like J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) and her in death series..Lise Kleypas is pretty good too especially her wallflower series! :clap
chanel - December 29, 2008 02:09 AM (GMT)
i would recommend Mary Janice Davidson's Undead series. I laughed so hard when i read these books...though some parts are a tad explicit.
sakura5584 - January 2, 2009 06:28 AM (GMT)
Meg Cabot's Boy Meets Girl is a good romance book in the form of letters, emails and the occasional receipts. It's really cute and i love the ending.
For the young readers category, I recommend "Audrey, Wait!" by Robin Benway.
angelkis00 - January 2, 2009 08:39 PM (GMT)
Linda Howard is pretty good for contemporary romance. Her older ones are stronger on the romance while the newer books have some romance mixed with mystery/action.
If you're interested in historical romance, Julie Garwood and Judith McNaught are good authors for that genre.
Ace - January 4, 2009 01:56 PM (GMT)
My top 10 romance authors in order:
Susan E Phillips
grays567 - January 8, 2009 05:55 AM (GMT)
I like novels that are written by Julie Garwood, Susan E Phillips, Meg Cabot, and Linda Howard.

As far as romance novels go, I really like Julia Quinn. If you like historical romances, her books might be the ones for you.
fawkes - March 29, 2010 09:50 PM (GMT)
I find most teen romances incessantly annoying but Beastly is a guilty pleasure of mine. >_>;;
When it comes to books, I prefer romance to be a sideline sort of thing. :V Developing gradually...in the background.
heavenlyqueen - April 23, 2010 10:56 PM (GMT)
i would recommend, The Countess Below Stairs and the Morning Gift, both have the same author and they are similar but different if that makes any sense
michi_misu - April 25, 2010 11:24 AM (GMT)
I love to read romance novel.
My top favorite author: Judith Mcnaught (simply the best) I've read all of her books and I loved the historical romance series the best.
For contemporary romance, I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips. love all her quarterback series:) and the latest book is wonderful to read too. her book is funny too so that's a plus.
I've read Lauren Wilig (not bad) and Lisa Kleypas (good) to name a few.
I'm interested in Sarah Dessen's book but i wonder if that's for teen reading or adult. If any of you have read Sarah Dessen's book, which book title do you recommend most?
