Amanda, Jenn, and guest author Courtney Milan answer your romance questions in this week’s Get Booked!
1. Hey y’all!
I’ve recently read Priest by Sierra Simone (YES MORE PLEASE THANK YOU) and am looking for more “so wrong it’s right” romance recommendations. Maybe more hot men of God or a sexy amish novel? Do those even exist? Who can I speak to about this? Anyway, forbidden love… what can you recommend??
2. Hi Amanda and Jenn
I have gotten into reading romance the past two years. I am very particular in my taste. I like olden day romances with Dukes, Earls…etc and if it has a family element and great/funny banter, even better.
I have read everything Candace Camp and Julia Quinn at this point. I especially liked Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series, suggested by Rebecca Schinsky. Can you please recommend romance books that have the above elements?
Love the podcast and thank you!
3. Hi Ladies,
I’ve never been much of a romance reader, but recently I’ve been heartbroken and depressed in a reading slump and somehow the two released books in The Professional trilogy by Kresley Cole found their way to me, and I loved them! They were perfectly filthy, the men were rich, strong, and sexy, and the women were equally rich, strong, and sexy. The Russian mafia thing was part of the story and somehow felt less cliche than the Italian mafia. Nothing else I’ve found in this contemporary romance/erotica genre seems to hit the spot. Suggestions? I am not a huge fan of regency romance stuff.
5. I’ve been wanting to get into Romance novels since it’s one of the few genres I don’t read, I’m looking for recommendations for some solid beginner Romances that are a good way to ease into the pool, so to speak. Thanks for all the great works you folks do!
About a year ago I started reading romance and love it (why did I wait so long?!). I read all kinds of settings and pairings but recently realized I hadn’t read any lesbian romance. I would like to fill this hole (ha!) in my reading but don’t know what to start with. Do you have any recommendations for f/f romance?
