Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Romance Suggestions

The first adult novel that I have ever read was Nora Roberts-Black Hills and I found out that I loved it. What romance novels would you suggest? I love Contemporary Romance books. That way you are in this time and not another one. Please suggest as many romance books as you can.Thanks

Re: Romance Suggestions

I love Susan Elizabeth Philips. Try 

 

 

 

Ain't She Sweet?  . It's got a heroine that I love. I started out hating her, and Phillips turns her around so deftly that I couldn't hep but cheer for her and her HEA. It's a wonderful book.

Re: Romance Suggestions

There are sooooo many to choose from. Since you like Nora Roberts, you would probably like her Bride Quartet series

 

Vision in White (Nora Roberts' Bride Quartet Series #1)

  

Bed of Roses (Nora Roberts' Bride Quartet Series #2)

  

Savor the Moment (Nora Roberts' Bride Quartet Series #3)

  

 

The 4th one does not come out until November I think.

Re: Romance Suggestions

I love Nora Roberts, so great choice.  Susan Mallery is really good too.  And Rachel Gibson.  And more on the funny side is Janet Evanovich.

Re: Romance Suggestions

Luanne Rice is one of my favorites, though her novels aren't just romance. More about life and love. Iris Johansen is another author I enjoy, and JD Robb (Nora Roberts). :-)

Re: Romance Suggestions

Thank you so much for mentioning my books! You gave me such a smile!

 

I'm having a lot of fun with my Fool's Gold series. If you've enjoyed the books, CHASING PERFECT and ALMOST PERFECT, check out the Fool's Gold website. Lots of fun between-the-books updates. Including pictures from Josh & Charity's wedding.

 

The next Fool's Gold book, FINDING PERFECT, will be out on August 31.
