G.G. Vandagriff | 4 comments I just released my women's fiction/romance The Only Way to Paradise about four ladies who go to Florence to regenerate and find greatly unexpected romance and self-discovery. I've written 12 conventionally published novels, and thought I might try self-pubbing one. It's on Amazon and Nook. You can buy paperback as well. Youu can have a sample read on Amazon.

Shirley Marks | 1 comments Hello! My name is Shirley and this group represents exactly what I love to read and what I write.

I've written Regency Romances, and a few Contemporary Romances, for Avalon Books which supplies the library market. The best part is they're free from your local library.

Avalon Books is a family friendly, nonsecular publisher printing 60 books a year: 4 Contemporary Romance, 2 Historical Romance, 2 Mysteries, and 2 Westerns every two months. There are some terrific authors who pen some great stories. Check your local library to see if they shelf any Avalon books.

I'm adding my books to the group's bookshelf. Thanks.

The Suitor List - Book 1 - out now!
Perfectly Flawed - Book 2 - coming soon!
The Gentlemen of Worth series - Avalon Books

Authors I've found that I really enjoy who I consider clean in the sense that their isn't any smutty stuff:
Marcia Lynn McClure
Lynn Kurland
Sarah M. Eden
Teresa McCrthy
Those are just some off the top of my head.

I also really enjoy the Avalon Books.

G.G. Vandagriff | 4 comments I write clean regencies as well! I have a new one coming out on Amazon this week: Rescuing Rosalind. My first trilogy can be found there, as well: The Duke's Undoing, The Taming of Lady Kate, and Miss Braithwaite's Secret. I was traditionally published for 20 years, but when I started writing Regencies, I went Indie. I also really enjoy Sarah M. Eden. She is also a friend.

Alyssa (willlyssa) | 1 comments I've read a clean romance e-book called "Killing Casanova" by Traci McDonald that I really like. You can get it on for a couple of dollars. I like it because the story is different.

Here's the blurb: In the small ranch community of Lindley, Nevada, Jake Caswell has the reputation and skills of the infamous womanizer Casanova—that is, until he meets Cassie Taylor, a blind woman who is oblivious to his normally irresistible charms. As Jake attempts to add Cassie to his list of conquests, he unintentionally pulls her into a world of violence, tragic old wounds, and enemies out for revenge. Soon, Cassie fears the truth about Jake will leave her heart as the next victim of Casanova's flawed perceptions. Will Cassie be able to uncover the man behind the mask amidst the threat of peril? And is there truly hope for love in a tangled web of danger—and blind distrust?

Linda Kurth (lindamkwriter) | 1 comments I'm a former Avalon author. I've recently gained the rights back to my Avalon "Career Romance," HOME OF THE HEART, and have updated and published it as an eBook.

Here's the blurb:

Meg Carey, a rising star in a fast-paced Beverly Hills interior design firm, suffers a claustrophobic attack while flying to Oregon for her family's Christmas. A charismatic stranger, Matt Aaberg, comes to her rescue. Is he a chauvinistic opportunist, as Meg suspects? Or as genuine as he appears to his Oregon TV viewers? When Matt dares to suggest that Meg move back home to Oregon, sparks begin to fly -- and keep on flying until each of this geographically desirable couple's worlds is turned upside down. Forced to examine the course of their lives, will Matt and Meg be able to discover the home of their hearts?

Haha, you're welcome! I personally do not see why R rated books are so popular; many times I think it actually detracts from the romance. Because real love is based on admiring someone for their character, not on physical attraction!

Ruth Roberts (goodreadscomruth_roberts) | 3 comments Hi there. I am author of clean romance novels. I currently have 4 books that are available in ebook format. They are contemporary romance that take place in high society settings. I hope you have the opportunity to read them, and review them. I would love to hear what you think.

Nellie Neves | 2 comments Hello! I'm Nellie K Neve. I write clean romance as well. My debut book is called Nightwatch. It's a suspenseful romance about a girl named Emma, that has nearly given up on her life ever being the same after the death of her father. Within the first five pages, a young man drops from the vent of her doctors office and changes everything. Her life goes from endless sleepless nights, to dodging bullets and searching for a painting that holds the key to her safety. It's fast paced, but no swearing, no sex, lots of romance and suspense. Nothing is ever as it seems.
I hope you give Nightwatch a try.
And coming soon, Bind my Wandering Heart, a clean romance about teaching love to someone who never knew it.

Lena Goldfinch (lena_goldfinch) | 7 comments Just updating with a new release in my Brides Series :)

Each book in The Brides series can be read as a stand-alone novel, but reading in order will provide a more complete reading experience.

"With unexpectedly fresh characters and twists, the imagination is kept on its toes, even while feeling entirely comfortable with the familiarity of the mail-order bride storyline... A great curl-up-on-a-cold-night read, so go grab a copy for yourself!" Serena Chase, USA TODAY Happy Ever After on The Unexpected Bride

Rachel Carter | 1 comments Hello group!
Just wanted to let you know about the book that I have recently published which was inspired by my love of Regency romances.
I have been delighted to receive some fantastic reviews, for example this from Regency Reader website:
I highly recommend this for lovers of the traditional Regency needing something a bit different but with all the familiarity of the genre. I think Rachel Carter is an upcoming talent, and worthy of taking note.

Lucretia is available on kindle, in paperback and is also on kindle unlimited. Here's the blurb to whet your appetite. I hope some of you read and enjoy it.

Kidnappings, elopements, duels, dastardly plots. Making your debut has never been so hazardous.

Hidden away from polite society, Lucretia Lanyon spent her time daydreaming of dandies, extravagant pantaloons and intricate neckties. Now an heiress and suddenly the toast of Society, she finds her ideal man in Viscount Prendergast, the one bachelor in London who doesn’t seem interested in marrying her. Lucretia must navigate around nefarious impostors, jealous mistresses, dastardly fortune hunters, and the match-making schemes of her aunt, while she tries to attract the notice of her beau.

Christopher Prendergast, an aspiring dandy, was busy perfecting the art of tying his cravat, learning how to use his quizzing glass as a social weapon, and secretly excelling at Jackson’s boxing saloon. To everyone’s surprise, Christopher finds himself in love for the first time in his life. He must now learn how to secure a lady’s affections. He stumbles through a wooing campaign that includes bizarre gifts, terrible poetry, daring rescues and, finally, honesty.

Lucretia is a traditional (clean) regency romance brimming with period detail, unlikely heroes, delicious villains, and the flourishing of an unlikely love.. I hope some of you will read and enjoy it. Lucretia: or The Heiress and the Dandy Lucretia or The Heiress and the Dandy by Rachel Carter

Mette Barfelt | 1 comments If you like sweet small-town romances, I have a book set in Norway.

This is the blurb for Time for Honesty:

Welcome to Solvik - a seemingly cozy little town on the Norwegian coast. It's an idyllic place with old, white wooden houses, almost a touch of paradise. However, under the surface lays intrigues, jealousy, and rivalry, threatening to destroy friendships.

Emmelin inherits her childhood home and must decide whether to sell it or move back to Solvik. With a husband who can't stand the country life, and no jobs available, the decision seems like an easy one. Confronted with decisions made in her younger days, she now faces deep remorse and indecisiveness. Trying to justify her actions and make things right, Emmelin discovers she's far from the only one withholding the truth and hiding dark secrets and lies.

In the midst of accusations, devious intentions, and new love, can Emmelin forgive and forget her father's betrayal and let go of the family drama from her past? Is she finally ready to embrace the future and trust her second chance at romance and love?
