Top 100 Romance Novels on Goodreads

Posted by Hayley on January 16, 2017

Romance Week brought to you by the latest book in Helen Hardt's Steel Brothers Saga, Burn.


Get in the mood for Romance Week with our list of the top 100 romances of all time. We narrowed the field by limiting our results to books aimed at adult audiences and books with at least a 4.0 average rating (sorry, Fifty Shades of Grey). Contemporary romance is read in the greatest numbers, but we also included results in popular sub-genres like historical and paranormal romance.

What's your "number"? How many have you read? Tell us in the comments!
