Are you looking for a great romance novel to read? This blog, in association with Best Romance Novels Today (bestromancenovelstoday.com) is dedicated to posting the best romance novels we can find.
We scour the web, searching independent review sites for the best romance novels. We consider books from large publishers, and also gems from the small presses. Each book posted has earned a five star review from a respected reviewer. In addition, we check that novel's average star ranking on Amazon. If a book earns 5 stars from both sources (or averages 4 1/2 stars with at least 15+ reviews on Amazon), we post it here. Enjoy!
