Our Favorite Contemporary Romances

Boy, trying to limit any of these "favorite books" lists to just 13 is impossible. But more so with contemporaries, since so much of the romance genre falls into that category and so many of the "big names" write there.

2. BitterSweet by LaVyrle Spencer
3. Breathing Room Susan Elizabeth Phillips
4. Carolina Moon by Nora Roberts
5. Crazy books (Crazy Sweet, Crazy Kisses, etc.) by Tara Janzen
6. East of Easy by Linda Bleser
7. Mackenzie stories by Linda Howard

10. Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard

Oh, Linda Howard is the reason I want to write contemporary romance. I loved the MacKenzie stories, and Mr. Perfect. Great list!
