The Great American Romance Novel

October 24, 2008 by in category Archives tagged as , , ,

I’ve agreed to help a friend (not HQE) with a project to create a list of the best American Romances of all time, and I need your expertise, if you’re willing to share it. 

1). So tell me, what would be your top ten American romances of all time be? (it can be more than ten, if you’re inspired). While I’d love to see them ranked and have you tell me why you made the choices you did, just a list of titles/authors would be great.

2). I also want to include a range of categories within the genre: i.e. Contemporaries, Historicals, Paranormal, Futuristic, Fantasy, Westerns, Civil War, Saga, Romantic Suspense, Romantic Comedy, Multi-cultural, Inspirational, etc., so welcome your favorites in a particular category you’re fond of.

What do I mean by American? Well, an American author or one living in America. What do I mean by Romance? Basically a focus on the developing romantic relationship between a man and a woman with a satisfying and positive ending.

Yes, there are some stories out there that don’t entirely fit that definition that I plan to include–I have to include GONE WITH THE WIND.  While it doesn’t have a traditional happy ending (HEA), I’ve decided that (dreadful sequels aside) we know in our hearts the book stops, but the story is far from over. S o while I’d say a firm “no” to, say, LOVE STORY, I do want to hear your, just alert me to any caveats or concerns about fit that you might have.

So would love to hear your thoughts to ensure this list is a stellar collection of truly wonderful stories.

Thank you!
Isabel Swift
