What are your top ten romances of all time? 

I found today’s post incredibly difficult. I’m sure I’m not the only one. There are so many wonderful romance stories to choose from. Narrowing it down to 10 was a challenge. 

10. Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas

The dark foreboding hero shows his heart of gold in this novel. I must like when the bad guys get redemption. There’s love for everyone.

9. Star Man

This movie sparked my obsession for aliens in love. They come in peace and love. He brought Bambi back to life for crying out loud! 

8. How to Marry a Duke by Vicky Dreiling

This was like a historical version of the bachelor but much more entertaining. The antics the heroine comes up with as matchmaker are hilarious but bittersweet as she starts to fall in love with the bachelor. Love it.

7. Holly Lane by Toni Blake

I love all of Toni Blake’s novels by this one by far is my favorite of hers. I’m a sucker for small towns, wronged moms, and Christmas all wrapped into a heartwarming and sexy love story. I read it even in the summer!

6. Emma

This movie is sweet and innocent and when I watch it I just smile. Enough said.

5. The Titanic

We all know how this story ends, but for some reason the story of Rose and Jack gets to my heart. How they fight for their love during such an overwhelming tragedy makes true love seem possible. 

4. The Notebook

I haven’t read the book by Nicholas Sparks, yet. But the movie is one of my favorites. The love of a lifetime. The most touching part of this movie isn’t in the movie but the fact my hubby bought it for me for valentines day one year and despite the tear jerker ending we watch it again and again.

3. Dark Desires After Dusk by Kresley Cole 

I’m a sucker for the professor turned extraordinary. What is great about this story is the hero isn’t afraid of this transformation. Despite his motto of looking out for himself, he falls in love with this wild professor and protects her at the cost of his life. Great stuff!

2. Archeron by Sherrilyn Kenyon

I’ve been a huge Sherrilyn Kenyon fan since I discovered her books years ago. I waited in anticipation for this book and when it came out I wasn’t disappointed. I devoured the huge tomb in a few days and was ecstatic one of my favorite characters got his happily ever after.

1. When He Was Wicked by Julia Quinn 

Once I read this book it was bumped up to #1 and has yet to be removed. What I love most is that it’s a novel about second chances for both the hero and heroine. I re-read this about once a year if not more and I always blubber like a baby.

My top ten might be different tomorrow or next week. I’m always watching romantic movies and have a huge to be read pile of romance books. Some say that all romances are the same but the ones I’ve listed gave me something unique and that’s why I keep reading and watching.
