message 4: by Sharon (new)

So did I!


message 6: by Vera (new)

Vera Greene I read most of these books. I wouldn't consider Julie Garwood a bodice ripper, though.


message 7: by Giaghazal (new)

Giaghazal A lot of these books are not bodice rippers.... But good reads nonetheless.

They don't belong on this list if they're not...should be added to appropriate lists

I have agree. I think she is more of a crossover. Bodice Ripper/ Romance novel


message 10: by ShoSho (new)

ShoSho I don't think half of the books on this list are bodice-rippers !!!


message 11: by crashqueen73 (new)

crashqueen73 I was thinking the exact same thing when I looked at this list!!!


message 12: by Amy (new)

Amy some of these books are not at all that "bodice-ripping" but I tell the ones that are, are amazing! and, my favourite books (the Westmoreland saga....♥(ACK!!!)♥) are in here.


message 13: by Emily (last edited Aug 05, 2015 08:38AM) (new)

Emily I love Julie Garwood and Johanna Lindsey books! I've read every one numerous times. I wish my paperbacks had not gotten ruined years ago, Buying them each for Kindle is kind of pricey! But doing it a few at a time is worth having them again. These two authors started me on a life long love affair with romance books. What does constitute a "bodice ripper"?


message 14: by Dorothea (new)

Dorothea I love finding these old gems at thrift shops , you never know what jewel you may find on your next stop !


message 15: by Elaine (new)

Elaine Darrow Its sad I cant find copies of some old classics here, I've got 70% of this list but the other 30% Im hell bent on finding, Im in my teens and i so want tomread the books my mother has. She lost all her books in a housefire. Can someone please tell me where I could find these very old BODICERIPPERS?


message 16: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Apparently I have a bodice ripper problem because I have read most of these....

Anyone can add books to this list.
