Romance Reading Challenge 2011

Je renoue encore avec ce challenge ! Il n'y a pas de raison de résister, je suis faible... et j'aime la romance (historique, de préférence). Jouons le jeu jusqu'au bout !

"Romance" isn't limited to steamy Harlequin novels. There is a huge selection of books in this category such as contemporary romance, historical romance, romantic suspense and paranormal romance to name a few. As long as the story has romantic love between the two main characters your selection will fit this challenge. The novels do not need to have a happy ending either, there can also be unrequited love.

Choose at least 5 novels to read. You can change your choices at any time. (Hosted by The Bookworm) Here I go !

  1. LU : Highlander Unmasked - Monica McCarty [#] (en VF : Le secret du Highlander)
  2. LU : Only his - Elizabeth Lowell [#] (en VF : Aventure dans les Rocheuses)
  3. LU : Slightly shady - Amanda Quick (en VF : L'intrigante de Londres) 
  4. LU : The Duke and I - Julia Quinn (en VF : Daphné et le duc)
  5. It happened one autumn - Lisa Kleypas
  6. Savage Heat - Nan Ryan
  7. First comes marriage - Mary Balogh
  8. An offer from a gentleman - Julia Quinn
