Jennifer (jhaltenburger) Here's the circs: I don't have a lot of experience in romance-reading but I want to branch out. So this year I took on a challenge to read a certain number each of seven different romance sub-genres. Problem is, I have no idea what books fit my choices! So if I list my genres here, will you guys help me out?

Runaway Brides
Set in Texas
Mystery, suspense and thriller
Holiday romance
Show business
Witches and warlocks

Thanks in advance!

Mrs.soule (mrssoule) Just of a few of my favorites to help out!

Regency - and these are all variations of the Beauty and the Beast theme:
When Beauty Tamed the Beast
Ravished - nerdy heroine
Yours Until Dawn
If You Deceive

Out of Control - escape through the jungle with a Navy SEAL
Don't Let Go - international adoption with dark, brooding Navy SEAL dad
Open Season - nerdy librarian heroine clashes with fascinated town cop

Witches & warlocks:
Anything by Ilona Andrews - read the series in order

Jane (PS) | 19623 comments Hi Jennifer - here are some books that jump to mind with these categories:

Show Business
I'm not a contemporary fan, but I know this one fits and a lot of ppl enjoy it: Just the Sexiest Man Alive

Extreme Exposure
Shadow Game (bit of psychic)
White Lies (bit of psychic)
Lots of books by Suzanne Brockmann

There is a huge backlist by Georgette Heyer, nearly all of them well-written with great characterisation.
