Best Romance Novels are Great Books

Would you agree that the best romance novels are great books?

A good book is like a mini-vacation, and for me, that has always been the appeal. No matter where I am – dentist’s office, doctor’s appointment, airplane – a great story takes me out of a less than appealing spot of time and puts me somewhere infinitely more pleasant.

Best Romance Novels

Maybe nothing does that quite like the best romance novels, where we follow two people who want to be together, who ought to be together, but can’t quite clear all the obstacles thrown in their way. Romance books comprise many of the top positions on Bestseller lists. Who doesn’t like to watch two people fall in love? Remember what the newness of that feels like?

Put them in a small town with some lovable secondary characters, and you have LaVyrle Spencer’s romance books like The Hellion, Bittersweet, Separate Beds or Spring Fancy.

Best Romance Novels

Put them at odds over how to heal a broken horse and the girl who loves him, and you have The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans.

Best Romance Novels

Or pair Meggie Cleary with Ralph de Bricassart, and you have The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCollough.

Best Romance Novels

Strand a teenage boy and his English teacher on an island, and you have On The Island by Tracey Garvis Graves.

Best Romance Novels

Jane Eyre and Edward Rochester, and you have Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (loved the 2011 movie version!)

Best Romance Novels

Each of these books took me through a torrent of emotions, and left me at various points along the way happy, sad, amused, conflicted, and wistful. That’s a journey well worth taking.

Many great books aren’t romance novels, but the best romance novels are great books.

Nashville – Part One – Ready to Reach. Buy it at

Young singer-songwriters going for the Nashville dream! Nineteen-year old CeCe Mackenzie leaves Virginia for Nashville with not much more to her name than a guitar, a Walker Hound named Hank Junior and an old car she’d inherited from her grandma called Gertrude.

But Gertrude ends up on the side of I-40 in flames, and Nashville has never seemed farther away.

Help arrives in the form of two Georgia football players headed for the Nashville dream as well. When Holden Ashford and Thomas Franklin stop to offer CeCe and Hank Junior a ride, fate may just give a nod to serendipity and meant to be.

5 Stars. “Ms. Cooper has written such a beautiful story that gives you hope. It fills you with laughter, sadness, and many other emotions. You feel connected to the characters and really share in their successes and hurt in their failures. I can’t wait for the next part to come out. I’ve really grown attached to the characters and want to see what lies ahead for them. Again…beautiful story.” – Reviewer

5 Stars. “Her car catches fire, 2 smokin’ hot guys stop to help. . . .the rest is history.” – Reviewer

5 Stars. “This book captured my attention from the very start! The characters are each unique yet seem to fit together. I love each of them, especially Hank. I was reading this on a plane and was so disappointed when I turned the page and realized I was going to have to wait to find out what happens. Excellent! I definitely recommend Nashville!” – Bookishblonde – Reviewer
