Sarbi Hi, well I´m in the mood for some light Reading which usually includes the romance genre.
Does anybody have some good recomandations my personal favorites are historical, georgian etc types but if there is the occasional YA, paranormal I wouldn´t mind.
I´m not very picky but if it´s interesting from the start it´d be a lot better.
Thanks!

Cynthia (cynnich) | 39 comments Sabrina Jeffries is a good historical romance author. Sabrina Jeffries I especially enjoyed the series the Hellions of Hallstead Hall which starts with The Truth About Lord Stoneville.

I also liked Candace Camp's series The Matchmaker's which starts with The Marriage Wager

puppitypup | 53 comments The Other Guy's Bride. This one is fantastic. It's fun and full of adventure with an exotic locale.


Susan (the other Susan) (theothersusan) | 61 comments A one-off that seems to have been written to take advantage of Downton Abbey's popularity but is romantic and readable: The American Heiress

Agreed! I adore Connie Brockway's historical romances and The Other Guy's Bride is one of her best.


Susan (the other Susan) (theothersusan) | 61 comments Delightful and sensual historical romances by Christina Dodd, especially her "Governess Brides" series: Rules of Engagement (Governess Brides, #2) by Christina Dodd Some Enchanted Evening (Lost Princesses, #1) by Christina Dodd Rules of Attraction (Governess Brides, #3) by Christina Dodd That Scandalous Evening (Governess Brides, #.5) by Christina Dodd

I love her books, she was the autor who converted me to the romance genre. Have you read the soldiers series?

I started to one time, Beauvallet I believe but I´m not sure. But it didn´t hold my attention much, which would you recommend?


Susan (the other Susan) (theothersusan) | 61 comments Lisa Kleypas seems to appeal to a wide audience of romance readers. I'm not crazy about her more recent contemporaries, but she's got a huge library of historical romances that range anywhere from dark to light-hearted and typically well written, not too angst-ridden. If you're into more explicit romance, Lisa Valdez' "Passion" is an 8 on the Richter Scale.

I have to admit--Beauvallet is not one of her better ones. But if you like Regency Romances--you owe the genre to Georgette. Personally I loved The Grand Sophy and The Toll-Gate But if you want to just dip your toes in and see if you like her style or not, try Pistols For Two which is a collection of short stories written by her.

So it wasn´t just me,there was a real cute scene between them that I always remember for some reason but I´ll go ahead and read some of your suggestions.
There was also another book of hers can´t remember the title but it had something to do with a boy who was really a girl that was working for the male lead.

Madison (madison219) | 34 comments Lock and Key , The Truth About Forever , Along for the Ride and What Happened to Goodbye are great romance books all written by the same author ( Sarah Dessen). I find she writes really good romance books although those 4 are the only ones I've read, but I really like them! :)

My personal faves for historical romance are Wings of the Falcon, Salem's Daughter, and pretty much anything by Victoria Holt. And of course Pride and Prejudice, the ultimate regency romance :)

If you're willing to go for longer books with a sort of epic sweep, try Forever Amber or Through a Glass Darkly (doorstops, but fun!).

Mrsbooks | 252 comments If I were asked what were my absolute favorite romance novels it would be these three. In this order.

1. Diana Gabaldon - Outlander (There is a whole series of books here)

2. Judith McNaught - A Kingdom of Dreams

3. Marsha Canham - The Pride of Lions (This is a 2 part book)

There are a few other authors mentioned and a few specific books I enjoyed.

I liked Wicked Intentions by Elizabeth Hoyt(The Maiden Lane series)

Books by Julie Garwood and many other books written by my #2 recommended book authoress Judith McNaught

Sorry if it's only a few. I guess I need to find more warm and light-hearted romance novels.
