Romance Books Read in 2010

These are most of the full length romance novels I read in 2010. I try to get the free stories on Amazon Kindle for my laptop. Many times I like the free one so much, I purchase other stories by the same author.  There are too many titles here to write reviews so those with an * are favorites.

This is an eclectic mix of romance genres: historical, fantasy and contemporary. Some are adventures. Some are pure relationships. Some are magical. I prefer the stories that are a good mix of all three.

Why do I read so much? Research. I used to read and not know why I enjoyed/disliked the stories. That has changed. I now read with a writer's eye.I read about the techniques of writing women's fiction and read published books to identify those techniques in action.

If only I could write as fast as I read.

I'll keep you posted.

  1. I know you read with Kindle on your laptop, but I have to recommend a Kindle or other e-reader. It lets me read romances on my commute or other public places and no one is the wiser! Not really necessary for the tame stuff, but very valuable for steamier romance books!
