Ravishing the Heiress (#42 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on June 22, 2012 When I opened this book, I fully expected it to be unequivocally wonderful. I haven’t read the first book in the series, but I don’t need to – it’s Sherry Thomas, and I trust that she’s going to tell a damn good story. Well, sh ...

Kiss an Angel (#43 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on June 5, 2002 Kiss an Angel is one of my favorite comfort reads. I drag it out when I need to smile. It's a wonderful story of personal growth, filled with humor, emotion, and some pretty sexy love scenes. This is Susan Elizabeth Phillips at her most e ...

Mr. Perfect (#44 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on August 10, 2000 What does it take to finish a book in one sitting? First, you need the time. Second, you need a book you just cannot put down. Last Saturday, I discovered I had both. Linda Howard's foray into big-time romantic comedy has paid off, and ...

When He Was Wicked (#45 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on July 13, 2004 Julia Quinn delivers another winner in the sixth addition to the Bridgerton series. Francesca and Michael’s story is interesting and definitely not typical. Michael Stirling meets Francesca Bridgerton and falls head over heels in lo ...

A Kingdom of Dreams (#46 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on April 8, 1997 As a rule, when I discover an author, I try to read her entire backlist. I thought I had done so with Judith McNaught until a friend suggested A Kingdom Of Dreams. As a huge fan of Whitney, My Love, I was excited to discover that Whitney ...

What Happens in London (#47 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on June 20, 2009 I know this will come as a shock to some people, but I’ve never been a big fan of Julia Quinn. It’s not that I dislike her books; it’s just that I’ve never loved any of them as others seem to. However, I could see a lot of wit an ...

Venetia (#48 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on December 03, 2006 When you're longing to read a book with memorable characters and dialogue that can be light without insulting the reader's intelligence, Venetia is the perfect read. Of Heyer's Regencies, this is definitely one of my favorites. Thoug ...

Smooth Talking Stranger (#49 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on March 16, 2009 I've liked every Lisa Kleypas book I've ever read, and even loved some of them, but somehow I don't manage to keep current with her books. Until Smooth Talking Stranger, I hadn't even tried one of her contemporaries. I suppose I'm savin ...

The Secret (#50 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on June 21, 1997 I think most aspiring historical romance writers would like to be Julie Garwood when they grow up. I know I would. Her stories always give me a smile, a laugh and a tear. I love them all, but my favorite Garwood book has always been The ...

Dream Man (#51 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on April 16, 1998 So, I'm reading Dream Man, and my husband idly says to me, "Say, how's your book?" With cool deliberation, I lift a brow and raise my glassy and dilated gaze, and say in a voice both low and menacing, "Go away. Take the kids to your ...
