I love lists like this. I always find new things to read!
The first 5 are my standard short list of recommended reads when someone wants to know why I read romances. The second 5 are regular rereads in addition to the first 5.
The Dark Tide, Josh Lanyon (although I consider all 5 books in the series to be a single work)
Frederica, Georgette Heyer
Agnes and the Hitman, Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer (audio version!)
Bitten, Kelly Armstrong
Force of Nature, Suzanne Brockmann (although you have to have read a few of the books before this one – at least Hot Target and Gone Too Far – to get the full impact)
Flowers from the Storm, Laura Kinsale
Here Be Dragons, Sharon Kay Penman
Match Me If You Can, Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Just One of the Guys, Kristan Higgins
More Than A Mistress (or Slightly Dangerous?), Mary Balogh
