LOL I know, what is it about romance books that makes us feel embarrassed? Could it be the covers?

I like Diana Gabaldon and Nora Roberts. I used to love the Harlequin books but I can finish one in a few hours. I wish I didn't read so fast. It just isn't worth the money for me.

See, that's funny. I was just reading that Diana Gabaldon just falls under every genre and it's so true. I wouldn't have considered her romance, though there definitely is romance in her books. I've heard historical fiction and sci fi, although I lean towards putting her under historical fiction.

I know what you mean about being able to finish them so fast. Sometimes that's the point. I want to read, but nothing that requires thinking so I go for the fluff books.

That's the way I think of them! Fluff. I've been reading them since I was 13 or so- I used to be embarressed and have my mom buy them for me. Now that I'm a mom I'm a little shocked that she was willing to buy some of the smut I read at such a young age.

Johanna Lindsey- Once a Princess and a few others
Judith McNaught- Until You, Whitney My Love, Once and Always
Nora Roberts (I like some of hers, mostly the circle series and sign of seven series)
Francine Rivers-Redeeming Love
Lynn Kurland- Star of the Morning

and of course Diana Gabaldon although none have been as good as The Outlander and Voyager.

If I'm reading romance I prefer the historical ones or scifi.

Wow, your Mom bought them for you??!? I used to borrow mine from the library. I had to hide them from my mom. LOL

Oh, I remember the Johanna Lindsey books and her Fabio covers....
