Hi!

Welcome to STP!

I read romances! Love them. My favorite authors are Vivian Arend and Jude Deveraux and Vicky Lewis Thompson. All of their books lol.

Hi and welcome to STP! I really enjoy Linda Howard and Julie Garwood. They aren't prolific authors but I do think they are good writers.

I think it means that they write romance set in modern (our) times but with fictional events, settings and characters.

Thank you. I actually started reading Julie Garwood and I enjoyed her books. So I was hoping to find similar authors. I wil look into some of Linda Howard's work. Much appreciated.

One of my favorite contemporary romance authors is Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I recommend all of her books. :) Her Match Me If You Can is one of my favorite reads.

Happy reading!


P.S. I think there are more recommendations in the Bookstore Cafe. Hope I helped.  ^-^
