The Top TenXW

1Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

One of my all time favorites. Think I'm still in love a little with Jamie after all this time. Definitely a must read!

Stick with this book, it starts out slow but you will be rewarded with Characters you will love at the end of the day. Also surprises, with most romance you can see where it is headed, Diana Gabaldon has an amazing ability to create new and exciting plots that will keep you thinking

Love this novel... I bought the first one and them continue on reading the entire series... Can't wait for the next book.. Definitely worth reading

Best book I've ever read - period. You will not be disappointed.

2The Bride by Julie Garwood

This book will always be one of my favorite reads. While it's depth isn't quite that of a novel like Outlander, Garwood certainly makes it shine with her main characters, Alec ^^ Jamie!

My favorite romance ever! Have read it at least six times. Makes me smile every time.

Loved, loved, loved this book.

Amazing till the end!

3It Had to Be You by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

One of my all time favorites! I absolutely love Phoebe! It had to be you is the first in the Chicago Stars series which I have also loved do far!

There is boobs on the cover

4Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Devereaux

I was about 17 when I first read this book... I am 37 now. Have read SO many novels since then, but few even come close to comparing to this one, can't wait to share it with my daughter in a few years :)!

I think it's the best romance book I EVER read next to paradise by judith mcnaught... I couldn't stop thinking about colin and my tears were preety unstoppable in many places... Trust me it's a must have to read book for all the romance lovers out there... And I am judging from the hundreds of seventy two romance novels I have read.. I can't believe still thinking about the book makes my heart contract..

I read this every year! I still cry every time too.
It will have you believing in soul mates. The emotion of the characters come through so poignantly.

My all time favorite. This story evoked every emotion out of me and I have never read another book quite like this.

5Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase

Best romance novel ever - and I have read tonnes but nothing has ever come near to this wonderful book. It is a modern take on the beauty and the beast story where the hero due to his troubled past thinks that no one is capable of loving him. And then comes our fiesty heroine who turns the world upside down for him. A must read!

Loved this book! Kept me captivated from the beginning to end. It never got boring and it just kept getting better with each page! As soon as I finished it, I read it again!

Yes, best romance ever! The characters, dialogue and story make you want to follow them anywhere! Test of time and it is still a romance among romance!

6Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

I've read this book at least 6 times. I think all the other books listed
Here, have a base in this book. Certainly Jane lived in a time where she
Herself didn't have the advantage these great authors did in reading other
Great works. A genius in character behavior and romance.

The novel is an example of what a true artist can achieve with ever so little!
Jane hersellf said that two or three families in a country village is a very thing to work on.
Likewise we find that here too like in rest of her novels she has turned her limitedness to greatest possible advantage! :-)

7Flowers from the Storm by Laura Kinsale

I have read over 10,0000 books and this is bar far still my number one without a doubt never found another that touches it

This is one of the best!

8Morning Glory by LaVyrle Spencer

I love anything LaVyrle wrote, but Morning Gloria and Twice Loved are my favorites.

9Dream Man by Linda Howard
10McKenzie's Mountain by Linda Howard

Anything by Linda Howard is perfection, but the McKenzie ' s will stay with you long after reading any of their novels. Also the fact that they personify sexy doesn't hurt either...

The Newcomers

?The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
?Double Standards by Judith McNaught

11Nobody's Baby But Mine by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
12A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

I just love it
Made me believe in love

A beautiful one :-)

13The Magic Of You - Malory Novels
14Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Intriguing... It will take you in a different world where you may get lost and never want to return back!

Lovely story ever.. Thanks Stephenie

15A Kingdom of Dreams by Judith McNaught

A Kingdom of Dreams is a wonderful book. I wish Judith McNaught could write more books like this one but her old books are better than her new books.
The problem with her new books is that hero and heroine of the books hardly spend time together so they do not connect enough.

16Dear John by Nicholas Sparks

It's an uh-mazing book.
Definitely a must read.
I will always be in love with John.

An Amazing book,
Beautiful and sad!

17A Fire in the Heart by Katherine Sutcliffe
18Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

A dark tragic story of obsessive love

A nice strange love story! I have read it for five times! But I thought the end of the novel is a little... You know!

19Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

It's my favorite novel of all time, and it should be number one on this list. I appreciate the fact that Jane Eyre is not merely a romance novel. The romance is a plot device to uphold the deeper themes of feminist ideals such as autonomy, independence, morality, and self-respect. While Mr. Rochester is indeed swoon-worthy with his dark, brooding, yet charming personality, there's more to Jane's personality and life than him alone.

Best love story ever, true love, passionate. Tackles themes such as redemption, abuse. Bigamy. Loss, rejection, a work of genius by a genius

The greatest love story ever in my opinion!
