Some of my favorite romance authors, in no particular order:

  • Tessa Dare
    Her writing has fantastic chatter (both dialogue and inner monologue), packs a great emotional punch, and is just plain fun to read.
  • Courtney Milan
    Her books are complex, her heroes are troubled, and her heroines are some of the most intelligent women I’ve ever read.
  • Lisa Kleypas
    Um, have you read her Wallflower series? ‘Nuff said. P.S. Derek Craven.
  • Sherry Thomas
    Sherry is DEEP. I still go to bed at night thinking about some of her books. If you like stories about grand reconciliations between flawed individuals who’ve been through some shit, read her books.
  • Sarah MacLean
    Her books were some of the first romance novels I ever read and they are effortlessly sexy and cool.
  • Theresa Romain
    Each of her books feel so unique, but all have her stamp of intelligent writing and unforgettable heroes.
