The one title (or titles I should say) that sticks out for me would be Stephanie Laurens' Black Cobra Quartet. Although I've read some of her other books, this series is really gripping.
Also I really liked Sarah MacLean's Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake....
(Forbidden Rose is in my TBR list though... maybe it will get bumped up)
Hi Voracious_Reader81 and welcome; if you like historical romance then you should definitely give Forbidden Rose a try!

Married by Morning (Hathaway Series) married by morning would be my top pick for 2010. i absolutely loved it, and have prolly already reread it 3 or four times.
I loved Married by Morning and in fact went back and read all the Hathaway series this year. They were my favorite regular romance books.

Winter Garden Kristin Hannah is one of those authors who's novels always speak to your heart and this one is no different. It's an amazing family drama featuring the women and you will laugh and cry with them.
One of my favorite web-sites is AuthorBuzz where I have been introduced to so many wonderful new authors and has left my To Be Read Pile enormous. Julie Compton as I soon found out was a native St. Louisan just like me who now lives in Florida and this is her second novel. It's a must read tale about just how far we'd go for someone we love, the limits we put on ourselves and if and how those limits can effect us and those around us. I loved this novel so much I featured it at Fiction General Discussion the book club at B&N.com that I moderate. But don't take my word for it, read it and find out for yourself.
Drawing in the Dust Ms. Zoe Klein I also found through AuthorBuzz and was also a feature on my book club in 2010. The author is a practicing Jewish Rabbi in California who authored this amazing fictional tale about a Christian archeologist working in Israel, it's a love story, a political statement and a contemporary piece of literary fiction all in one. And it should be a must read for everyone, all religions, all nationalities. And maybe if we did, we'd learn something important about humanity.
Lover Mine (Black Dagger Brotherhood Series #8) What list would be complete without a JR Ward and especially one of her bold and beautiful stars of her Black Dagger Brotherhood series. This is the story of John Matthew and Xhexania and leaves off right after Lover Avenged ends. If you've been living under a rock, get out and read this amazing series, a new way to look at vampires.
Unforgivable (Tracers Series #3) Laura Griffin, another author introduced to me by AuthorBuzz and her Tracers series. This novel is the love story of Mia Voss and Rick Santos, two very deserving people who go through hades to get their Happy Ever After. A very good romantic suspense series so give it a try.
The Immortals (Taylor Jackson Series #5) J T Ellison was introduced to me by Mira also and her latest in her Taylor Jackson romantic suspense with the emphasis on suspense series. It's a great read and takes place on Samhain, involves a number of murders of teens. It's intense and you will have bitten your nails to the quick when you're done. But it's so worth the read. A great series and a great protagonist.
Rebel Claire Delacroix is an author that I have followed for years, starting with her historical romance most of which I can still remember all of the characters and a voracious reader like me that's a feat.
So those are mine and a few of them could be in other genres too
