Hi all,

I'm looking for a good romantic read, perhaps with a surprise ending and would appreciate any suggestions. I have read nearly all of Nicholas Sparks' books and particularly liked 'The Notebook' and 'Nights in Rodanthe'. I also enjoy paranormal romance like Christine Feehan and of course the Twilight series. I also like historical romance.

Thanks D x:)

You could try One Day, The Chronicles of Raynor the crimson prince, outlander or dream man - i've found all of these excellent reads and each has something different!

Try The Sebastian St Cyr novels by C S Harris. The first is What Angels Fear and you must read them in order (and read the author's notes at the end), as the sub-plot is about anti -hero Sebastian and his dysfunctional family. They are murder mysteries set in 1811 Regency England with an underlying romance running through them, and lots of surprises, although clues are given re. Sebastian's family in the first and subsequent books. They are very good and envelope you in the sights sounds and smells of Regency London. I've read all 5 so far and am eagerly awaiting her 5th one.

Try The Bay at Midnight by Diane Chamberlain. Luanne Rice's books are very good e.g. Beach Girls etc. Then there's prolific author Nora Roberts/J D Robb who writes witchy/fae stuff/romance/romantic suspense. Also recommend The Queen of New Beginnings by Erica James.

Try 'The Well Tempered Clavier' by William Coles. Not the average romance, picked up in an airport on impulse and well written from a very different angle. A very very good read.

I like Susanna Kearsley's time-slip romances Mariana and Sophia's Secret. Not too mushy but just enough to keep you wondering "will they, won't they" ...Mariana

Would second The Bronze Horseman trilogy recommendation- I couldn't put this down. Also, any of Adriana Trigiani's novels (Big Stone Gap etc) or Anthony Capella's are well worth a read. Some of the Rosie Thomas books are worth a look too- and I love the 'Seaswept' saga by Nora Roberts :)

I was going to suggest Mariana but S. Montagu beat me to it :o) If you like historical romance you could try Georgette Heyer - she is the queen of the Regency romance. Frederica, A Lady of Quality, These Old Shades, Cotillion, Arabella and Venetia are all very good. And amongst contemporary authors, I would rate Jennifer Crusie highly - her books are funny, her heroines feisty and they make for a great read. I would suggest Faking It, Bet Me and Welcome to Temptation as good starting points if she takes your fancy.

I would suggest 'Shadow of the Moon' by M.M.Kaye. If you find history of the British in India in the 19th Century of interest, this is a very enjoyable read. In fact, I prefered this book to 'The Far Pavilions', by the same author, which was made into a very successful TV series.

Thanks very much for all your suggestions. I certainly like the look of many of them.

To Auraya - I'd forgotten about Jennifer Crusie. I read Welcome to Temptation many years ago and really enjoyed it. Will have a look at her other stuff.

Thanks again to everyone. I'll be putting many of them on my wishlist xx :)
