Compiled by Jean Mason Little did I realize a couple of months ago what I was getting into when I blithely suggested to Dede that -- given the furor about the Top 100 Novels of the 20th century -- we ought to compile a list of the Top 100 Romances. And who better to determine the top romances than the readers of The Romance Reader Of course, having suggested this undertaking, it fell to me to carry it out. The Romance Reader Top 100 List

CataRomance | Celebrating category Romance If adventure is what you crave in a story and also want lots of sexual tension, then the ICE: Black Ops Defenders miniseries by the very talented Melissa Cutler will satisfy both requirements. The first book in the miniseries remains one of my all-time favorites, and SECRET AGENT SECRETARY is definitely added to the list. From high-speed car chases to ruthless thugs with guns, the danger is never-ending plus almost always physically threatening and not knowing the outcome always upped my fear for the main couple. What split-second decisions these two frequently made could mean either living or dying, and I so hoped they would make the right choice as I truly loved Ryan and Avery. Melissa Cutler ingeniously brings a suspenseful book about spies and romance to life with riveting cleverness. Since Avery Meadows works as a secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement in San Diego, she has reached one of her goals.

The first thing you need to know about Much Ado about Jack is that there is no “Jack.” Had I known that going in, I probably wouldn’t have chosen to read this book. Our hero, James, is called Jack once or twice by mistake. Anyone who names their book after a deliberate mispronunciation of their main character’s name—a mispronunciation which occurs not even a handful of times and thus seems pointless—is not an author I’d care to read, frankly. more All About Romance
Sensuality Ratings Guide Some sites utilize movie-type ratings as the basis for their sensuality ratings and therefore they are more "warnings" than anything else. Our readers seem to prefer sensuality ratings more as simpy another type of information; some might even feel "cheated" to read a book given a "Hot" rating if it were only "Warm." The idea for our levels was based on a Blush Factor several years ago.. .would your cheeks get redder while reading a book with "Burning" sensuality than they would if reading a book with "Subtle" sensuality?
