Top 11 Romance Novels

Having done my top 11 pop songs and movies, I think I should probably do my top 11 romance novels. Seeing I am a romance writer and all!

Again these aren’t in any particular order and I haven’t included classics although obviously Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights are all masterpieces of the romance genre. And I haven’t listed Dorothy Dunnett’s Lymond series, not because they aren’t romance (and everything else you can think of as well) but because they deserve a whole column to themselves. At least one!

This was really tough! I could do a top 11 with just my favorite books by Loretta Chase and Laura Kinsale. Every writer I’ve mentioned has a wonderful backlist from which I could easily have made other choices for the list. Isn’t it great to think how rich and varied the romance genre is?
