Hey Kristina,
Jill Shalvis (heard a lot of good things about this one)
Julie James (one of my favorite authors)
MaryJanice Davidson (she writes a lot of paranormal, and even though I don't read that genre, I really enjoy her other writings)
S.C. Stephens (writes with very strong emotion, absolutely love it!)
Erin McCarthy (again, she seems to be popular)
Nora Roberts (of course you've heard of her???)
Laura Leone (I've read one of hers and really liked her light and fun style)

Hope this helps!

Amber (Cali23) | 6 comments Kathy Love's trilogy for the Stepp sisters
Susan Mallery

Happy reading!


message 6: by Anne OK (new)

Anne OK | 101 comments You are doing yourself an injustice if you don't try MARIE FORCE. Her contemporary romances are realistic, well-developed, well-edited, and are just wonderful reads.

Line of Scrimmage (the cover doesn't do this book justice -- very little football; the relationship between these two characters will steal your heart!! )

Love at First Flight

Everyone Loves a Hero...and that's the problem (Marie's latest will be in the bookstores in February! -- I read an advanced copy and it is a winner).

Fatal Affair (the first book in Marie's new "Fatal" romantic suspense series which is over-the-top fun to read!)

Fatal Justice

Ebooks (contemporary romance) by Marie that are excellent!

The Fall
True North

You have listed books you have read. Who are your favorites. like you I am running out of good authors to read. Do you have any favorite suggestions for me. I do not like Paranormal/Time Travel/Magic


message 8: by Kristina (new)

Kristina  (volcanicpunk) | 7 comments Viv, some of my favorite authors are paranormal and historical romance. But I do have some favorite contemporary
Jennifer Crusie , Robyn Carr , Catherine Anderson. Most of the other authors I like some of their books, not all.
What don't you like about paranormal? I don't really like time travel either


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

I don't like reading paranormal either
