April showers bring May flowers, well here on Angel’s Guilty Pleasures instead of April showers – It’s Raining Romance….

What is a romance novel? Romance novels feature a main plot of two people as they develop romantic love for each other and work to build a relationship. They also need to have an “emotionally satisfying and optimistic ending.” There are many subgenres of romance; contemporary romance, historical romance, romantic suspense, fantasy romance, paranormal romance, science fiction romance, time-travel romance, inspirational romance, multicultural romance, & erotic romance.

Mine of course is paranormal romance, but I’ve been trying other subgeners in the romance category. 


A few authors I enjoy in my PNR genre: Felicity Heaton, Shelly Laurenston, G.A. Aiken, Thea Harrison, Nalini Singh, Jeaniene Frost, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, & Setta Jay. 

A few series recommendations in the PNR genre: Psy-Changeling Series, Guardians of the Realms Series, Eternal Mates series, Pride Series, & Dragon Kin Series.

  62. I read it all, but love historicals (especially Eloisa James).

    • I like YA best because I prefer more clean romance and less “adult” baggage that I already have to deal with. Books are my escape and relaxation time.

  64. I love YA romance!

  65. It’s a toss up between contemporary since it’s more like modern life and regency historical since I love reading about a different era in time filled with balls and teas!

  66. Paranormal Romance. Series more than one offs. I suppose because I like to become familiar with the world and characters. Nalini Singh Guild Hunter and Psi Changeling series being favourites. Urban Fantasy series for the same reason , Ilona Andrews and Patricia Briggs. Never been a fan of High Fantasy though.

  67. “What is your favorite romance genre and why?” Regency Romance, because the houses and clothes were nice!

  68. contemporary- settings

  69. Contemporary romance since that is currently what I read the most and I prefer to venture briefly into a world I understand and perceive as a little closer to reality than those of some of the other sub-genres.
