I thought I’d share a few of my top Ten favorite Romance Novelists. There is a pattern here. Most of them write historical and are either on my auto-buy list or I re-read them over and over. They are however in no particular order.
Johanna Lindsey – I have a few Johanna Lindsey books I read over and over. “Defy Not the Heart”, “say you Love Me” and “Love me Forever” I had to purchase Nook versions because I’d worn out the covers so bad.
Catherine Coulter – I cut my teeth on Ms. Coulter’s Regencies. I’m not as much of a fan of her FBI series, because hey I like Historicals. A few of my favorites are “Sherbrooke Bride” and “Midsummer Magic”.
Hannah Howell – I binged and have purchased the Entire Murray Clan Series, but my truly favorite Hannah Howell book remain’s “Kentucky Bride”.
Cathy Maxwell – Cathy Maxwell makes me cry in the very best way. She has some stories where such sacrifices are made you can feel it. Hence the crying. I don’t have a particular favorite and have read them over and over, all I can say is keep them coming Ms. Maxwell, keep them coming.
Tessa Dare – The first book I picked up by Tessa Dare was “When a Scot Ties a Knot”. Loved it, and was then forced to play catch up when it was the 3rd book in her “Castles Ever After Series” which lead me back to her “Spinster Cove Series”. Ms. Dare has the right amount of heat in her stories that make me search out Mr. Holland. So he’s a fan as well. 🙂
Maddy Barone – Maddy Barone writes a post-apocalyptic werewolf series, “After the Crash” which I adore. A few of my Read over and overs are “Wolf Tracker”, “Wolf’s Oath” and “Wolf’s Vengence”. Thank god I have digital copies of these.
Kristen Callihan – I remember I was traveling for work and I was looking for something to read in my hotel room and purchased “Firelight” for 99cents. Then began my binging of her “Darkest London” series.
Bec McMaster – I was waiting for the next Kristen Callihan book to come out when I noticed on my Nook, people who bought “Firelight” bought “Kiss of Steel”, so I did and then proceeded to binge read her “Steampunk London” series.
Deborah Blake – I love the “People who bought” feature on my Nook. While waiting for the next Kristen Callihan book or maybe it was the next Bec McMaster Book, I found Deborah Blake’s “Baba Yaga” series. And subsequently fell in love with her “Broken Riders”
Beverly Jenkins – I picked up Beverly Jenkins up at the Library on Audio Book and listened to “Indigo” on my daily commute. Now I read her books as they come out. 🙂 It’s funny but I really dug the historical knowledge she put in her books, and found myself telling people, “Did you know the underground railroad did this and this.” Thank you, Ms. Beverly, for reminding me why I fell in love with the Historical Romance Genre.
Happy Valentine’sDay! I hope you have a wonderful and teriffic day and curl up with a good romance. I know I will.
