    Thanks for the reviews! I heard quite a bit about the Smythe-Smith from reading a couple of her Bridgerton books.. maybe I will check out the first one at least.
    As for books I would recommend, I really like the Wherlockes/Vaughn series by Hannah Howell for historical romance, and for contemporary, I like Julie Garwood’s Buchanan family series, and Jayne Ann Krentz’s Arcane Society (I like suspense/murder mysteries).

      I think I have read one or two of the Buchanan. Maybe, I should read the rest. I will check out some of those and probably do some review on it. 😀 Thanks.

    i have so many books of them in my hdd but never read one. i should try but now, i’m reading Lisa Kleypas and that’s not bad.

    • Shampoo says:

      Lisa Kleypas is good!! Her love scenes are sensual lol but not too steaming. It’s quite classic ahahàhahahahh but her books are gooood!!!!

      • Teptida says:

        can i confess i’ve tried megan hart “gilt and midnight: an erotic fairy tale” and it was too much for me?

        • Shampoo says:

          Erotic books are the IT right now so, I don’t think it’s wrong to try to read them but they don’t really have substance to keep the book interesting. I tried reading Fifty Shades of Grey and it’s so childish! Lol I didn’t like it.

            I haven’t dared to try 50 shades afraid it would be too much for me. Plus bondage is not it for me 😀

    I have read “just like heaven” I like it. I love historical romance something about that time period makes it so special to me. I love Susan E. Phillips books (Kiss an angel) is my absolute favorite. Also Ashes In The Wind and Wings of a Dove is beautifully written.

    • Shampoo says:

      Hey, that’s one if my favorite from SEP too!!! Kiss An Angel was humorous lol

      • ash30 says:

        Love Alex…he was mean to her but I was rooting for him and daisy. She on the other hand is sweet…strong and vulnerable but most importantly she is not weak.

        Also one that I re-read many time is “Almost a lady” by Brenda Joyce.

  5. Evelyn says:

    Thanks Shamp, i was looking for good books/novels that i could read when i have spare time, i guess i might get these later 😀

    Sylvia day’s historical romances are not bad, lisa kleypas wallflower series is good too!

    • Charm says:

      Btw, Sylvia and Lisa’s books are books that u would say could fit to the trend these days. I would say moder8 sensuality. the ones with mild sensuality that i consider as classics would be from judith mcnaught and johanna lindsay

      • Shampoo says:

        Judith McNaught is one of my favorites. No one writes like her anymore. I really like her style of writing even though she’s so descriptive and her books are freaken long. But I miss her, a lot.

        • Charm says:

          I miss her too. I just love her historical romances. Have not had the good luck to find an author i like more than judith. ive read her westmoreland series soo many times. ‘someone to watch over me’ was supposed to be a historical romance, i read the excerpt and waswaiting for it to be done only to find out it got scrapped. Hope she comes back!

    I start to love Sarah McLean. Her St.John/Raltons series are really good. My favorite of the 3 brothers/sisters is “Nine Rules to break when romancing A Rake”.

  8. ash30 says:

    I am starting to love reading about heroes that are truly a bad ass like cops/military or any in the law enforcement. I found a few that I am hooked to. But all in all they don”t write books like they used to.

  9. ClosetReader says:

    I’m so happy to find people who like the same romance books as I do. I usually have to be a closet romance book reader because people just think it’s too racy (ie. my in laws) but I read it for the romance story. Some people like my in laws are so closed minded and ignorant. Anyways, Julie Garwood(the secret), Judith McNaught (Whitney My Love, Kingdom of dreams, Almost heaven), Lisa Kleypas, JoHanna Lindsey… are some of my favorite authors.

    • Shampoo says:

      There is a lot of sex scenes but some are less than others. Sometimes,I just skip those scenes because I want to know the mystery or,just want to hurry up and finish the book. Lol I am not patient. At times though, I want to savior the book by reading everything.
