I’m romancing my blog this week. It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so why not, right?
I read a lot of romances in 2012 that had my head spinning in a good way. I can’t list them in order of best to worst because my brain/heart doesn’t work that way. I just simply love, and love for different reasons.
Before I get to the list, Thursday I’m having a special guest visit to answer my questions, and yours! Stop by to comment and win a copy of Tempting the Billionaire by Jessica Lemmon.
Readers, anything by Laura Kaye is going to blow your mind. If you like your heroes hot, strong, and daring, this is the way to go. I have yet to pick up one of her books without fanning my face. Steamy, ya’ll.
I don’t care what anyone says, the Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day is great. It’s 50, but with talent, and by talent, I mean the writing. I seriously love this. Gideon is the type of hero I can’t help but love, but would slap the hell out of in real life.
The Lux Series from Jennifer L Armentrout is my newest love. If you love YA as much as I do, you won’t be disappointed. I wish I could write a dynamic between any of my H/H’s the way Armentrout has with Katy and Daemon.
For a fun and quirky romance, Temping is Hell is a great go-to. I really loved this. Cathy lets her inner geek flag fly with the Kate, and Thomas is freakin’ adorable. Laugh out loud funny, people.
Yo. Superheroes? Clever and funny? Read EVFIL from the talented Liana Brooks.
Richelle Mead needs no introduction I’m sure, but just in case you haven’t started this spinoff series to the Vampire Academy series…ADRIAN!! The romance is certainly taking its own sweet time, but its full of conflict and tension. Would you expect anything less from Richelle?
Now, I know love triangles are on the out, but, in my opinion, this has the best triangle I’ve ever read. I honestly can’t choose between the two heroes in this YA series, Infernal Devices, from Cassandra Clare.
Lastly, Tempting the Billionaire. This is a great debut from Jessica Lemmon. Shane isn’t your typical billionaire, and Crickett isn’t his typical assistant. Great tension throughout, and if you aren’t smiling, your gasping and wanting to flick a certain character in the head. Oh, and steam. There will be steam. Stop by Thursday to win your very own copy!!
I’m sure I’m missing some, but those come top to mind when I think of the great romances I’ve read over the past year.
What were your favorites? Who made you sigh out loud. In a public place. Ya know ya did it, so share.
