    My fave contemporary romance of 2016 was Neighbor Dearest by Penelope Ward because it was really funny!

  2. 2kasmom

    Favorite Contemporary Romance for the whole year is really hard. I read so many great books this year!
    If I am forced to choose, I would say probably Paper Princess by Erin Watt.

  3. Jenny Dauksa Schaber

    One of my faves was Absolute Zero by Anlyn Hansell. Very well written, older & established characters, great story, lengthy book that keeps you on your toes. This is the one that I recommend the most. It’s not “traditional” in any way, but I think that everyone should take a chance on it.

  4. Kate Sparks

    First Star I See Tonight by Susan Elizabeth Phillips Because I have waiting so long for another in this series!

  5. Virginia C

    The “Ransom Canyon” from Jodi Thomas is terrific contemporary western romance–fabulous storyteller!!!

  6. belindaegreen

    Wow, you guys don’t ask much do ya?…I read so many books that were favorites, The one author that comes to mind at this moment is Mia Caldwell’s series– Faith, Love, Hope and Destiny. All 4 books revolved around 3 sisters and a cousin who owned Clique, Elite Party Planners. The stories, suspense, men and characters were such that I couldn’t put them down until I had read all 4! Wonderful series! I highly recommend it. 🙂

  7. debby236

    It wasn’t a romance but Ir eally enjoyed Ashes by Steven Manchester.

  8. Theresa Hurley

    When All The Girls Are Gone, by Jayne An Krentz. Great writer and one of the best reads so far this year! Lots of suspense, loved the interaction between all the players!

  9. Juli Hall

    Sugared by Jamie Farrell was my favorite, it’s funny, sexy and just a really good story. The whole Misfit Brides series is great

  10. conniefischer

    I truly enjoyed “Christmas in Paris” by Anita Hughes. Having lived in Paris, it really took me “home.”

  11. kermitsgirl

    I can’t think of a title specifically from 2016, but I discovered Zoe York this year and gobbled up everything I could find of hers.

  12. Courtney Kinder

    This is Our Song by Samantha Chase. She writes great characters and I love the Shaughnessy Brothers.

  13. Joye

    I really enjoyed the Highland Guard series by Monica McCarty because I like to read about the Highlanders. Also, Monica is a very effective writer.

  14. Amy Rickman

    Grin & Beard It by Penny Reid and Bounty by Kristen Ashley, I love these authors voices and they are such great story tellers.

  15. Christy

    Light After Dark by Marie Force. It was a beautiful story, and I loved getting to revisit all the previous characters.

  16. Judy S

    Gosh! I’ve read so many good books this year. I really enjoyed Jennifer’s Bernard’s Set the Night on Fire. It’s the first book in her Jupiter Point series. I also reread Jeannie Moon’s Until You. I just love that book!

  17. Debbi Wellenstein

    My favorite contemporary romance of the year is Fatal Identity, by Marie Force. I love this series, so I loved this book too.

  18. Colleen C.

    Oh geez… I can not think of a fav… I have enjoyed so many from different authors…

  19. Joanne B

    Bounty by Kristen Ashley. I waited a long time for Deke to get his story and it was well worth the wait.

  20. Teresa Williams

    A Cowboy Christmas Miracle Carolyn Browns last book in the Burnt Boot Series .The whole series was awesome.Jodi Thomas had a wonderful series as well

  21. Nancy Luebke

    That is a tough question but I will give you the top 3 from the All I Want For Christmas Bundle. 1st is Debbie McComber’s 5B Poppy Lane, next is Heather Graham’s Spirit of the Season and Brenda Novak’s A Dundee Christmas. I still have 8 stories to go in that set. So there may be more. Since I’ve read more than 130 books this year, I know there are more that I haven’t listed. So many good stories out there.

  22. Trudy Dowling

    My favorite is a short little Christmas story by AJ Harmon called Weighting For Christmas. It is about Kate Evans, a young lady that has dealt with being over weight all of her life with a family that is horrible to her. She finds everything including stength.

  23. Karina Angeles

    My fav is Hold Your Breath by Katie Ruggle. It’s action packed with a slow-burning romance. Loved it!

  24. Elizabeth T.

    My favorite is definitely Don’t Tempt Me, by Lori Foster. It includes two love stories in one book, as well as features interesting characters. Highly recommend!

  25. Julie Lundstrom

    I like to read romance and Harlequin are the best romance books. I like that it is a set so I will have plenty to keep me busy.

  26. strgth4yu

    I liked Snowfall on Haven Point by RaeAnne Thayne, it was my first time reading her book and I truly enjoyed the story.

    Linda Ortiz

  27. Vicki Highley

    Christmas in the Cove by Carol Ross is the latest I read. My favorite is always the latest I have read.

  28. rachbrown2015

    Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan was my favorite! I loved that the hero was a bestselling crime writer. I love Sarah Morgan’s books. She is a great author and I love the humor in her books.

  29. theresajs

    I just can’t pick one, there have been several that I really liked!!! =)

  30. Banana cake

    Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan, this is a great series each book is better than the last.

  31. LauraJJ

    Oh one that I really loved was Love, Chloe by Alessandra Torre! Oh It had me laughing so many times…..yet so romantic!

  32. isisthe12th

    One of my favorites is The Reluctant cowboy by Kate Pearce. Thank you

  33. eawells

    My favorite was First Star I See Tonight by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I mean it’s SEP!!! That is reason enough!!

  34. ELF

    There are so many stories that were great, including M.L. Buchman’s various series including Keepsake Cove and Cecy Robson’s “Inseverable” and Donna Kaufmann and…many, many more!

  35. Kim M

    I’ve read a lot of books this year. I think The Nurse’s Newborn Gift by Wendy S. Marcus. I loved watching two characters who didn’t like each other bought together by a promise and then falling in love.

  36. Terrill R.

    The Hating Game – Rom-coms are my favorite romance sub-genre and this one was one of the best I have read in a long time. I enjoyed every minute of this book. This book also had two main characters that I couldn’t help but root for and realistic humor and romance that kept me smiling, if not laughing.

  37. Pennie

    Nope, not possible. I have read 183 books so far this year and most of them contemporaries so would not want to begin to pick one. I could probably make a top 10 or 15 in no particular order though because I have read some fantastic books!

  38. Jean White

    Say You Want Me by Corinne Michaels is my latest 5 star book because I love that series. My all time favorite book this year is It Ends With Us.

  39. Kim

    Unbreak My Heart by Nicole Jacquelyn! This is definitely one of my favorites for 2016. There is an emotional storyline that immediately grabs you and there are complex characters.
