There were a lot of fantastic novels published during the past year. The following made me especially ecstatic to be a reader. What set them apart: I've read each of them at least twice... and I don't really have time to read books twice.
Half are traditionally published and half are indie, and all are available for the Kindle and Nook. All are romantic or have strong romantic elements, which should surprise no one who knows me. The links are to my Goodreads reviews. As always, I strongly suggest that you download the sample (or read it online) before buying.
