Today's post is inspired by Book Binge's own romance starter kits post - thank you ladies! :) I thought it was a really good idea. What books would I recommend for new romance readers! And because I still have 8 days to the challenge, I'm going to split this in many posts LOL.
Today, we're starting with contemporary romance:
Sea Swept by Nora Roberts
Getting Rid of Bradley by Jennifer Crusie
Twisted Creek by Jodi Thomas (re-read review)
Her Best Worst Mistake by Sarah Mayberry
Sustained by Emma Chase
Personally, I think every starter kit should contain a book by Nora Roberts and Jennifer Crusie. Those two are simply timeless authors :) And well, Ms Roberts has a really wide selection. I also chose Twisted Creek by Jodi Thomas to showcase a different writing style. Her Best Worst Mistake was my pick for short and sexy and Sustained, for the male POV.
Books/authors that I considered:
Virgin River by Robyn Carr - The style is quite to Ms Thomas and I was looking for something not small town
Linda Howard and Judith McNaught - I haven't re-read their books in a very long time. I'm just afraid they might be outdated and therefore, not good candidates to attract new readers
Kate Angell and Laura Florand - Two authors that I enjoy immensely, but I find their style not to be for everyone and therefore, perhaps not good choices for new readers
What about you? What would be in your Contemporary romance starter kit?
