As I’ve been working on the list for the upcoming AAR top 100 romances poll, I’ve noticed a dearth of romantic suspense novels, especially those written in the past five years (since we last did the poll.) We’ve reviewed 19 RS books this year–12 were DIKS. I’ve only read one of those: the very enjoyable Night Will Find You by Julia Heaberlin and that is just barely a romantic suspense–it’s more a suspense novel with a possible romance in it.
I’d like to read more romantic suspense in part because I adore mystery/suspense novels. So, what have you got for me? What romantic suspense novels do you love? Bonus points if they’ve been penned in the past five years!
