Welcome to the results of the 2018 AAR Top 100 Romances Poll. This is a reader generated poll we do every five years or so. This year, we had over 5000 votes and so many marvelous books nominated.

We’ve decided not to rank these books, but rather just put them in alphabetical order. We did rank the top ten and you can see them here.

All 100 are available at Amazon and maybe found here.

A printable list of all 100 may be found here.
