Keishon is my go to resource when I want a great mystery read. She turned me on to PJ Tracy, Julia Spencer Fleming, and Karin Slaughter, to name a few.
When you ask for a top ten list, these titles come to mind quickly. It’s a shame that I can only name ten titles as there are a lot of other great, wonderful, romance books out there but without further ado, here is a glimpse at my keeper shelf, starting with the first ten or so titles. As you can see, I am a huge fan of historical romances.
- Heart of the West by Penelope Williamson. This book is out of print but can be purchased used.
- Years by LaVyrle Spencer. No digital version.
- Flowers From the Storm by Laura Kinsale. Kindle link.
- Bliss & Dance by Judith Ivory [they go together]. These are expensive and out of print. Looking at the pub date (1996), the rights may have reverted back to Ivory. Maybe someday she’ll allow them to be sold digitally.
- Morning Glory by LaVyrle Spencer. The link is to a trade reprint but there are very affordable used copies. The Kindle version is also expensive.
- Fortune’s Bride by Roberta Gellis. Gellis resold the print and digital rights to Ellora’s Cave for publication under the Cerridwen Press imprint. Ellora’s Cave charges twice as much for their print and digital books at retail locations other than the jasmine-jade website.
- Nine Coaches Waiting by Mary Stewart. This is a trade reprint. There are affordable used versions but no digital version.
- Almost Heaven by Judith McNaught. No digital version.
- The Shadow & the Star by Laura Kinsale. Kindle link.
- My Dearest Enemy by Connie Brockway. No digital versioin.
