Suggestions for good love story?

vmariscalvmariscal Posts: 29Registered Users
HI all! Looking for suggestions for a good romance story. Not a bodice ripping, saucy romance novel, but something with a little more substance. Have to admit, my love story kick is all due to Twilight :) [Not that Twilight has that much substance, but I like that its more plot than sex driven]
Side note: I've read all Jane Austen, so I've got those romances covered!

    Jane Eyre, A Town Like Alice (an epic romance that really takes off the second half of the book), The Host (also by Meyers, but very different from twilight)... Can't think of anymore off the top of my head, but I love these books. Have re-read them all.
    Stopped fighting the pregnancy induced waves (9 year battle) and became natural 5/11
    2a/b? fine, low porosity
    co wash- say yes to carrots, strawberries and cream Vo5
    low poo- Lor'eal ever pure
    leave in- burt bees very volumizing watered down
    gel- beautiful curls wavy-curly, LA looks sport
    scrunch and pump works for me

    A few years ago, I read a book called a Certain Slant of Light. It's about a high school boy who falls in love with a ghost who is able to take over people's bodies. I know it sounds weird but its really beautiful. Actually, thinking about it now makes me want to reread it.

    The Bronze Horseman by Tatiana Paullina (very dramatic - takes place in Leningrad during WWII)
    A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness (it's basically Twilight for adults)
    Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier (this is mostly fantasy but I love the romance in this book)

    I would definitely recommend any of these to anyone!

    I'm currently reading "The House I Loved" by Tatiana De Rosnay
    Paris, France: 1860’s. Hundreds of houses are being razed, whole neighborhoods reduced to ashes. By order of Emperor Napoleon III, Baron Haussman has set into motion a series of large-scale renovations that will permanently alter the face of old Paris, moulding it into a “modern city.” The reforms will erase generations of history—but in the midst of the tumult, one woman will take a stand.

    Rose Bazelet is determined to fight against the destruction of her family home until the very end; as others flee, she stakes her claim in the basement of the old house on rue Childebert, ignoring the sounds of change that come closer and closer each day. Attempting to overcome the loneliness of her daily life, she begins to write letters to Armand, her beloved late husband. And as she delves into the ritual of remembering, Rose is forced to come to terms with a secret that has been buried deep in her heart for thirty years. The House I Loved is both a poignant story of one woman’s indelible strength, and an ode to Paris, where houses harbor the joys and sorrows of their inhabitants, and secrets endure in the very walls...

    The First Princess of Wales by Karen Harper and Katherine by Anya Seton are beautiful historical fiction romances. I love them.

    Anything by Nicholas Sparks!
    Abbi Glines has very cute young adult books (if you can get past the sometimes bad grammar!)
    Emily Giffin's Something Borrowed & Something Blue are awesome!

    That's a great book. Except they are both ghosts inside high school students bodies ;)

    The Outlander searies is a good love story. One of my all time favorite love stories though is The Time Travlers Wife.
