One of the fabulous things about the Romance Category is the amazing range of topics and the fantastic authors who write enduring and endearing romances.
My reading selections focus on Romance, Mystery and SciFi. The way I find new authors to try out is by going through the top ten lists.
Just the other day I once again checked in on a top Romance author list and found two authors I had never encountered before — I have NO idea why because both of them are well known–just not to me. I read two books from each of the authors. Turns out I absolutely loved one of them and am lukewarm about the other. So now I have ordered a new library of 14 books that I am sure I will be happy with.
Take a look at these top selling romance authors. Which of them are missing from YOUR reading list? Which one of these authors could make it onto YOUR favorite authors list?
I’m including three of each author’s best selling books. If you are interested … click on the author’s name which will link you to their Amazon page, which includes all their books.
Though the top romance author list is updated hourly, the information is a compilation of all their Amazon book sales. The authors listed below are typically listed in the top 20 romance authors (out of 100).

J.D. Robb is the pseudnym of Nora Roberts. Robb’s “In Death” series is a cross-over romance series that features Eve Dallas a police detective set in the future. The cross-over is three fold. Each of the 50+ books in the series focuses on murder. There is a nice dose of romance between Eve Dallas and Roark, her multi-billionaire husband. Though the series is set in the future, there is actually very little SciFi other than off-planet colonies, flying cars, and my favorite … the auto chef.
This is one of my TOP choices in a romance series because of the great plots.
Though you can dive in at any point in the series and have the book make total sense … my suggestion is to start with book #1.
