What kind of romance is your favorite to read?

I used to love mostly contemporary but I have recently started to read a lot more Historical and its fast becoming my favorite! How about you?

Joy I enjoy both. With contemporary I most enjoy romance laced with suspense...The O'Malley series by Dee Henderson, Heroes of Quantico series by Irene Hannon, for example. I also enjoy a good Love Inspired or Love Inspired suspense book.

With historical I prefer almost anything set in the 1800s. Prairies, pioneers, mail-order brides,...that type. Also Love Inspired historicals.

And in either genre, where one of the characters gets a second chance in life, or masquerades as someone they're not for one reason or another.

Camille (camlovesraptors) | 16 comments Historical fiction is definitely at the top of my list.

I highly recommend She Walks in Beauty by Siri Mitchell
&
Lady in Waiting by Susan Meissner

They are both clean, historical fiction reads that I thoroughly enjoyed!

I have Lady in Waiting I have read about 50 pages and just can't get into it. I don't know if its the two stories meshed together or what. I should pick it back up and try to finish it!

Ausjenny | 76 comments I love Historical best, love the western flavour but others are good too. not so much regency.
I like the contemporary ones also.

Elaine Littau | 5 comments I love to write Christian Historical/Western Fiction. I guess it is because I have read so much of it.

Kristy (riverunbroken) | 71 comments Heartsong Presents and Love Inspired though I have to admit that I have been reading more Amish books.


message 9: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Brand I love Amish books, and Western/prairie style historicals. I'm pretty open to most historicals, really, and I'm starting to read more contemporary romances. Sometimes I like to read romantic suspense but I'm not a massive fan of it.

Carissa I love Amish books, some contemporary, historical, I also love Love Inspired; Love inspired has books in the three catergoies that I love.

Tina Watson | 10 comments I love Amish Books and have read a few Christian fiction romance books. I have also read Love Inspired books.

Jennifer (jennafraugh) | 101 comments Mail ordered Brides are fun, I like the prairie times and War times a lot too. Plus Regency is another fav!


message 13: by Beth (new)

Beth Historical for sure :)

I used to love contemporary but I find historical is probably my 2nd favorite behind Amish fiction.


message 15: by Karen (new)

Karen Baney (karenbaney) | 10 comments It's so hard to pick just one. I would have to say historical is my favorite, with contemporary / chic lit as a second, and suspense third. Although lately I seem to be reading a lot of westerns (historical and contemporary).

I also love to write historicals.


message 16: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly | 5 comments I love being transported back in time with historical. I like Regency but I particulary like Westerns/the Civil & Revolutionary Wars. I like mail order brides (or grooms like in Laurie Kingery's Mail Order Cowboy). Amish is good but definitely not a favorite. Overall, anything reflecting history is fascinating to me because I like the idea that it (or at least parts/bits/pieces) truly happened.

I have found I am loving Historical Fiction a lot more lately. My 2nd favorite would be Amish Fiction.
