I’ve agreed to help a friend (not HQE) with a projectÂ to create a list of the best American Romances of all time, and I need your expertise, if you’re willing to share it.Â
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.
So would love to hear your thoughts to ensure this list is a stellar collection of truly wonderful stories.
