The same can be said of Zsadist and Bella in Lover Awakened. Zsadist is the ultimate bad boy. He has the scars and bad attitude to prove it. My favorite storyline is the bad boy reformed by the love of a good woman. It's a different kind of love in The Notebook. I don't think Edward Cullen sets the bar for guys- Noah Calhoun did. He built a house for Pete's sake! And the movie adaption is one of the best movies ever made.

One of my favorite things to read are series romances. I like when characters you love pop back up again in another story. In Rising Tides, we had already met Grace and Ethan and knew they liked each other but got to see that love grow out the friendship zone they had been in. Grace loved Ethan even though he thought he was forever damaged and her loved healed him. Roxy and Luke in Honest Illusions grew up together as well and seeing how their relationship changed over the years is what a true romance is. It was the opposite in Jewels of the Sun. Jude was a shy, quiet girl who was brought out of her shell by the bartender she just met Aidan.
Romance novels are a society staple. After all, they make up 44% of all book sales. Romance novels make me happy and can pull me out of a funk. The couples I read about become real people to me that I cheer for and want to smack upside the head. They make me laugh, cry and laugh out loud.
Do you have a favorite romance novel?
