So if it’s Wednesday, it’s time for a L&SR blogging challenge.
This weeks’ topic? Favorite authors in the ROMANCE genre.
Honestly, I could write this one in my sleep while having a nightmare and sleepwalking.
The number one name on my list is (no surprise to anyone who knows me): Nora Roberts and her literary doppelganger JDRobb.
No one. No. One. Writes like the doyenne of romance. Yes, she head hops, but so what? Yes, some of her stories, esp. the paranormals can be…farfetched. SO what, again? The recent plagiarism lawsuit she is involved with proves there are some writers so intimidated by her success and brilliance, they will take her words as their own to get ahead. As JD Robb, Roberts has given the romance reading world two of the best characters it has ever seen: Eve Dallas and Roarke. Le sigh…Roarke.
The second name on my list is a contemporary romance writer, Lauren Layne.
The very first time I ever picked up a Layne book as a Netgalley selection, I was hooked after the first page. It’s been that way with every subsequent book I’ve read of hers. Snappy, witty dialogue, delicious love scenes, and a casts of friends who would do anything for any one of their group. I simply adore the way she phrases a sentence.
For historical romance, a genre I don’t read much of, but that I love when it’s done right, you can’t go wrong with Elizabeth Hoyt and Eva Leigh.
And although she writes both historicals and contemporaries, I prefer Lisa Kleypas’ historical books. Lots of sexy spice and wicked, wonderful heros!
So, I read romance. A lot of romance. Let’s see what some of the other authors in this challenge read, and who their fav authors are: L&SR

Man, I need to up my game, I think! I’ve only ever read one Nora Roberts book and none by the other two! Hahaha!
I know Nora Roberts (who doesn’t, right?) but weirdly I haven’t read any of her stuff. I do have a couple of Romance favorites, though, at least one of whom I mention in my own list.
i haven’t read any of these, so I’m going to add them to my list. 🙂 Great list!
I’m super late to this due to traveling last week and having very little Internet time, but I liked your list.
