Nominate the romance book you want to read for February HERE!!!

It can be any sort of romance; young adult, adult, historical romance, inspirational romance. Any plot line that has a romantic storyline can be nominated. More than one nomination per person is allowed.

However, erotic or BDSM nominations will not be considered due to content matter (i.e. no Fifty Shades of Grey.).

My personal opinion is that P & P is the best novel of all time and Elizabeth Bennett is my favorite protagonist, but I have read it about 5,000 times.
I would participate in the discussion, though.

Donna I've had The Art of Hearing Heartbeats on my TBR for ages. It sounds really good.

Another book I've wanted to get to for a while is Mariana, a wonderful historical romance. So I nominate that one. I love anything by Susanna Kearsley.

Barb (barby22) | 5 comments I've also had The Art of Hearing Heartbeats on my TBR list. Looks like a really beautiful love story!


message 20: by Elizabeth☮ (new)

Elizabeth☮ It is such a great love story and not in a sentimental or sappy way.
