What’s the Most Romantic Book You’ve Ever Read? Which and Why?


I’ve read many romances over the years, starting in high school with the late Georgette Heyer.  These are three of my favorites of hers. A twentieth century author, she “invented” the Regency Romance. I’ve read and re-read many of her romances. I think THE GRAND SOPHY is about my favorite and think it would make an amazing movie! Why doesn’t some smarty in Hollywood do that? ‘-) SO WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ROMANCE EITHER A BOOK OR TYPE? LIKE RANCH STORIES? HISTORICALS? AND WHICH ONE OR ONES ARE YOUR FAVES?–Lyn

    Good Morning, not a typical romance but my choice is At the Scent of Water by Linda Nichols.

    Job 14:9 (KJV) Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.

    Any more will give too much away.

  2. Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson! There is such great romantic tension throughout the book and I love the characters. Super sweet.

  3. Kathy says:

    My favorite is Pride and Prejudice. I read it over again at least once a year. Ah that Mr. Darcy, can’t get enough of him!

    Whispers of love by Rose Verde

  5. Ola Norman says:

    I think The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks is the most romantic book I’ve ever read. I love it because he stayed in love with her even after she couldn’t even remember him.

  6. Dacia Willams says:

    My most favorite romance is by a contemporary writer is “Waiting for Forever” by Diana Mylek. I enjoy it on a lot of levels, but the obliviousness of the two main characters to their rightness for each other. The story unfolds at just the right pacing for the kind of romance it is. A key element is the reliance on God for guidance. They just don’t get the memo right away. It’s a beautiful story, and Diana deserves more exposure than I could ever hope for her.

    I have lots of favorites but I think the one where I feel like the best description of love is The Last Valentine by James Michael Pratt.

    Morning Lyn,
    I’v been reading books all my life, and not that am retired I read over a hundred a year so I have a lot of favorites
    The one I would save was the most romantic is Phanton Waltz by Catherine Anderson.
    This is a very special story of a young girl, Behany who has a love of horses, racing and life which was cut shot due to an
    barrel-racing accident which leaves her in a wheelchair for life. She has given up on finding someone special.
    Then in walks, Ryan ,Rich ,Handsome as sin, tall rancher who has always thought of women as weekend fun.
    This is about people you don’t usually find in Romance books, and I fell in love with this witty women and the wonderman
    man who is able to see pass the chair.

  9. Heather H says:

    My favorite romances are Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, & Persuasion. But I do love any good, clean romance. I love historical romances and romantic suspense, but I also enjoy some contemporary. So I would say I’m just a hopeless romantic that lives to read.
