Ten Things: Adult Romances

I read chick-lit books and some romances, but I have to admit that one author turned me onto romances (again) and I couldn't believe I stopped reading them for a while. I think romance gets a bad name from the rest of the reading world. I know that I read romances from my own home and generally not in public. I sometimes cringe when it's a sexy cover and wonder what the library circulation staff might say. But then I shrug, because I really do want to read these books and I know that others do too.

This is the book that got me started on Regency Romances - It's by far my favorite romance genre. I picked up this book after I read Sarah MacLean's YA novel The Season and wanted more from her.

I love this series for the romance, the spies, the danger, and the time shifts between modern day and Regency England / France
Meg Cabot's a favorite, but I absolutely LOVED the idea of writing a Romance novel. And it was an adorable novel.

I read 10 Things I Love About You before I knew it was a series and then I went back to read the rest. Loved them! In the first of the series, I loved how the little girl fell in love with a handsome young man and how it all turned out.
I LOVE Debbie Macomber. I'm working my way through her novels. I LOVE this one and the Blossom Street novels the best.
Sherryl Woods is quickly becoming a favorite. I LOVE these two series. I also just purchased the two Rose Cottage books.

I loved this book - and again didn't realize it was part of a series. I have book three at home, waiting to be read. I loved the 'improper" behavior and how Theresa, a spinster, makes a list of all the things she still wants to do in life. And then does them!

I read this one right before Christmas and loved it for the sweet tale of a man who gains a daughter when his sister dies. He meets his match in a toy store. It's just a wonderful read and the cutest holiday romance.
This was the first book I've read of Susan Elizabeth Philips and I adored it! I loved the matching making scheme. And the few I've read by her, I've loved.

I loved this book. I loved how it started with Tarot cards and her life went on from there. Very fun.

I have a several in my goodreads To-Read list - but what are some that I can't miss?

I love Debbie Macomber too! I don't think I've read any of the others you mentioned. I have a few on my shelf but for some reason often pass them over for other reads. Maybe I'll have to give them another look.
