Definition of "Contemporary Romance": While technically a subgenre of the Romance category, that category is much too large to not be broken down. Contemporary Romance, by definition, is set in the time in which it was written. The ebooks in this category are largely focused on the relationship and romantic love shared by two people. Typically, ebooks in this category reward characters that are good people, punish those that are bad, and end with an upbeat, positive conclusion. But, that "formula" is always being altered by excellent authors--which is why we read their ebooks, right?
Some examples of the best Contemporary Romance ebooks past and present include Nicholas Sparks (The Longest Ride), Tracy Brogan (Crazy Little Thing), Jojo Moyes (Me Before You), Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook), Lisa Kleypas (Blue-Eyed Devil).
Keeping up the rock star image ain’t easy, but someone’s gotta show these fakers how it’s done.
Daddy issues galore?
Glitz, glamour and general debauchery?
I wrote the f**king book.
I’m a textbook bad boy rockstar cliche, and I’ve never claimed to be anything else.
Hell, I own it.
At least, I did, until he came along: Mr. Self-Righteous who acts more like a priest than a drummer. Now he’s my bodyguard and the guy in charge of making sure I don’t OD before the tour ends.
Oh, right. I also have a crazy stalker who’s been obsessed with me since I was a kid. So that’s fun.
It doesn’t take long to figure out Cash is more of a danger than any freak with a shrine of me in his closet, and he’s way harder to shake. He’s managed to convince our band manager (AKA, the crappiest father ever) that he’s the only one who can protect me from my stalker and my own vices.
Cash thinks I’m stuck with him while he forces me to get clean, but what starts out as a Daddy/boy roleplay meant to freak him out turns into so much more than a game.
For the first time ever, I don’t know who’s going to win, but I’m not going down without a fight.
My new job is a nightmare.
The name of that nightmare? Dante Jung, lead singer of the world-famous band Dante’s Infernal, living trainwreck, and all-around brat.
His manager hired me to be the new drummer for Dante’s Infernal--since the singer has run everyone else off--and his undercover bodyguard.
The only problem is, I’m pretty sure Dante is more of a threat to himself than even his obsessed stalker. He drinks hard, parties harder, and he’s never turned down a lovesick groupie.
And there are a lot of those.
Dante is a brash, selfish, narcissistic douchebag. And he’s also a brilliant, devoted and passionate musician who can be unexpectedly vulnerable at times.
When he asks me to be his “Daddy” for the month we’re stuck together, I’m shocked, but not for the reasons he thinks.
Taming Dante is going to be one hell of a challenge, but he will break before I ever back down, no matter how undisciplined he is now.
He doesn’t know what he’s in for, but he’s about to learn.
"This is the kind of book you suggest to your friends. The kind of story that sticks with you long after the last word." - Dana from Random Chaos ★★★★★
He never wanted to leave her. She never expected him to return.
If Ariana Stanton has learned anything in life, it's that men leave. She's been taught this lesson well from the father she's never met, who sends her a mysterious letter once a year, to her ex-fiancé, who left her for another woman. So, when she meets the charming and seemingly perfect Jonah, she promises him they will never be more than friends. It's a promise she can't keep. But before he has a chance to leave her, she sends him away.
Dr. Jonah Adkinson has one regret--that he let Ariana remain convinced that love never lasts. But now, nine years later, the single dad is back in Pine Falls and on a mission: prove Ariana wrong. He's determined to win over the love of his life. And this time he won't let anything get in the way, not even her.
Now, not only does Ariana have to face the man she's still in love with, but she must confront the mystery of her father's letters, forcing her to reevaluate the past and her choices. But will it be enough to make her believe that, unlike the letter she's always returned, Jonah is hers to keep?

No. Absolutely not. He will not fall in love with his best-friend’s little sister. He is not that guy.
So…yeah, okay, Alyssa Kyle is gorgeous and funny, and she’s slipped into more than a few of his fantasies over the years, but Sebastian Ridgeway is not about to cross that particular line. No way. No day.
Today is the day.
Alyssa’s in trouble. Someone shot at her—actually shot at her—and now she’s getting all kinds of threatening messages. Messages that say she’s about to pay for her brother’s crimes. Only her brother is a computer gaming designer, not some secret agent. The bad guys out there have obviously made a mistake.
There is no mistake.
Sebastian and Alyssa’s brother, Antony, have been working the spy game for years. They started as hacking teens but graduated to the big leagues—and their gaming company is just their cover. Apparently, their cover has been blown. Now some of the bad guys they’ve taken down want payback—and Alyssa is being targeted. Her brother is out of the country, gone dark on an assignment, and Sebastian can’t just leave Alyssa on her own to face the wolves. Not happening. So…
Time to get close.
He moves Alyssa into his home. Provides twenty-four seven protection for her. He figures he can keep his secret desire for her in check—he’s done it for years, after all—or at least, that’s the initial plan. Until he finds out that Alyssa has been longing for him. That he’s starred in more than a few of her fantasies, too.
All bets are off.
He’s held back for years, thinking he was doing the right thing. Thinking he’d never truly deserve a woman like her. But if Alyssa wants him, if Alyssa needs him, nothing will stop him from claiming the woman who owns his heart. Not the bad guys who are closing in, not the government who wants his tech, and not even Alyssa’s big brother.
Keep his hands off her? Stay away from Alyssa? Sorry, that’s…NEVER GONNA HAPPEN.
Absolutely, one hundred percent…Sebastian will not let her go, and he will prove that he is the guy—the only one—for her.
As president of the Untamed Sons MC, I'm no stranger to pain, but three years ago Sasha Montgomery broke my heart and put another black mark against my soul. Even the mention of her name is enough to bring my demons out to play. I still don't know what happened, but what I do know is she walked out on me, the club, and the future we were working towards without a backwards glance. I should have known she wouldn't stay gone.
Leaving Rav was the hardest decision I've ever had to make, but I didn’t have a choice. Staying and facing my past wasn't an option. I suffered through hell, but I'm stronger than I've ever been, at least I was until my daughter got sick. Now, the only person left who might be able to save her is her father.
Only, I have no idea who it is. Ravage, or his brother, Sin.

Sabine Noble has given little thought to her husband over the past five years. Theirs is a true marriage of convenience: she gained protection from her abusive uncle and the chance to live freely in London, while he gained the dowry necessary to make his business venture a success. But as she’s investigating her uncle’s nefarious deeds in hopes of gaining her revenge, she discovers the body of a half-dead man on a ship, only to realize the man is her husband.
When Captain Jon Stoker awakens in a strange house, he’s astonished to realize that he’s being cared for by his estranged wife. Although she’s not much of a nursemaid, he finds his long-held attraction for his beautiful wife deepening as he discovers her powerful spirit and fierce drive.
As Stoker regains his strength, he begins to help Sabine on her quest to bring her uncle to justice. And along the way, two lonely people discover that their marriage of convenience has become a union of souls.
You don't have to be a wolf to show your claws, but it helps.
My five boyfriends - yes, five - are being much too patient with me. That's pissing a few people off. It seems that when living with a pack of wolves, there are certain expectations for the alpha's mate - and I suck at this. A few months ago, I had no idea shifters even existed!
I just wanted a safe home, and this is it, although it's not at all what I imagined. When an ex-girlfriend decides to make my life a living hell, pack rules say that if I want to keep my place, I need to win my own fights. That's not easy when she's young, fit, beautiful, and a wolf.
But with the help of a few friends, a little medical advice, and a whole lot of pent up sexual frustration, one thing is going very, very well. Five boyfriends really are better than one. I just have to balance them with my child and these new pack responsibilities.
Because, this was my second chance. I'd intended to learn how to be strong, but I was thinking more about having my own opinions and less about dominance challenges! I should be focusing on the bully picking on my daughter at school. The pack's children are being singled out by some kid, and that is a problem - but this woman will not leave me alone!
So if I want to be strong, I need to stop letting others push me around.
It's time for the claws to come out.

Celebrity blogger Charlotte Jones is having a bad year. She's been trampled in a riot, her therapist has told her to take a break from work, and she's developed a crushing case of anxiety.

When she boards her plane, she finds herself strapped into a seat next to the man who sold her out nine years ago.

Of all the girls in Paris... he picked me.
I was studying the Mona Lisa, and he was studying me. Not my sister. Me. He turned me upside-down. I hardly recognized myself through his eyes.
Beautiful. Interesting. But it was all a lie.
It was just a family vacation. Until he came along. I gave him kisses freely, but what he took from me was priceless.
Internship? No problem.
Show up on time.
Get the coffee orders right.
Whatever you do, don’t get mixed up with your way-off-limits boss.
Especially not on the conference room table at work.
Looks like I broke a big rule there.
Eli had alpha male written all over him.
Sexy and strong and set in his ways.
All I had to do was be a good little intern for the MLB expansion team
Finish my classes, and that master’s degree would be mine.
I could put my illness behind me and chase my dreams.
No secret crush on my boss, no distractions.
Absolutely no fantasies about him.
Nope never happened.
Those dizzy spells? Probably nothing.
Not my illness coming back.
And definitely not a secret bundle of joy...
That would make everything even more complicated.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "A hysterically funny and well-written romance story." - Readers' Favorite 5-star review
Cassie Dunhill and her friends make a pact to marry the next guy they each date. What could possibly go wrong?
Cassie is sick of dating. It's been ten years and it's time, time to find The One. It's either that or buy a fetching habit and veil and abandon the whole thing. But Cassie believes in love, and she's not ready to give up yet.
The pressure is on to find Mr. Right and Cassie's the first to find him: Parker Hamilton. He's good-looking, smart, cultured--and a doctor. Despite his obvious credentials, Cassie's not taking any chances. She's vetted Parker so thoroughly she could offer some pointers to the CIA. Needless to say, he passes with flying colors.
Things get complicated when Will Jordan, her irritating work colleague, muscles in on her dream job and her love life. Will is a typical guy, complete with nicknames for everyone, even Cassie. His good looks and relaxed, easy nature can be distracting. But Cassie can do without that kind of distraction right now, no matter how good Will looks with his shirt off.
In the end, is there only One Last First Date?

From Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author, Willow Winters comes a steamy, small-town romance.
A drunken bet that led to a fake relationship? My naive little heart still hoped it would last...
We were never meant to be together.
He’s a bartender with noncommittal tendencies.
I’m looking for … the opposite. Commitment. Period.
But drinks and a bet led to something it shouldn’t have: a fake relationship. Worse, a first date, a first kiss… and then more.
He’s addictive and I can’t bring myself to accept the reality.
That it’s all a lie and I’m fooling myself by thinking he could want more. That I could change him.
He’s mine for as long as I keep on pretending like this is just for fun.
As if I don’t want more…
Like when he whispers my name, I pretend it doesn’t make my heart flip.
Like when he holds me at night, I pretend I don’t want to lay in his bed every night.
It's just a bet; just a lie . . . until it isn't.
A sexy, moody, broody mountain man who only wants his solitude. A city woman trying to find herself in the backwoods. One horrible rock slide that leaves the two strangers stuck together...whether they want to be or not.
I've been holed up in my crappy, one room cabin in the back country of Colorado for so long that I'm basically not even human anymore. And I'm not here because I have to be. I'm not some crazy prepper who thinks the apocalypse is coming, and I'm not running from the law.
I'm just an artist who gets lost in the creation of my wood sculptures, and I'm alone because I like it this way. I do my best work when I'm separated from the rest of the world And for the most part, people suck, and there isn't anybody back in civilization who will ever notice that I'm not there anyway.
I'm so far off the beaten path that it's rare for me to see another human at all, and I'm perfectly fine with that...until Keeley Norton comes crashing into my solitary life--literally.
It isn't like I really want to rescue the woman and haul her back to my cabin. But I can't leave her on the side of the mountain injured, either. I might be a surly jerk, but even I can't be that heartless.
Basically, I'm screwed in more ways than one.
Luckily, she only has to be stuck with me for a few days. I can handle that, right? Even if I don't want her in my cabin, what can happen in forty-eight hours?
Problem is, I didn't count on the way she makes me feel every time I look into her sexy, smoldering dark eyes. All I really want to do is nail her. Against the wall. Bent over my rickety table. Any time or any place is fine with me. And believe me, I fantasize about every single location as the hours tick by.
My plan is to just ignore her until she can get back to her own place, but that idea isn't working out so well.
Turns out, Keeley isn't a woman who is easily ignored.
She's chatty -- which really should drive me crazy since I'm a guy of few words, but it grows on me.
She's kind and not the type to judge -- even though she's a smart-mouthed city woman who doesn't have a clue how to survive in the backwoods.
All in all, Keeley is way more dangerous to me than any four-legged predator in the woods.
Simply put, she's exactly the kind of woman I need to avoid.
And I try to keep my distance. I want to keep my secrets to myself, and the last thing I want is to be painfully pried open by a female who will be gone in a matter of a few days.
I'm a master at avoiding complications, but Keeley is an unholy temptation that even a hardened loner like me might not be able to resist...
The enemy may have changed, but the battle between good and evil burns hotter than ever in this scintillating new installment in Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity series.
There is only one thing more precious to vampire Tarak than his newfound freedom after five centuries of captivity, and that’s the promise of revenge. At last, he can destroy Riven, the merman who has drained his power in order to make himself king. But at the very moment when justice is a fang’s breadth away, Tarak’s quest is complicated by the beautiful mermaid princess who kept him sane and fed during his ordeal.
Waverly hoped that once Tarak escaped, he’d return to his own kind and enjoy the rest of his immortal life. She also hoped she might one day stop dreaming about the darkly handsome vampire. Instead, Tarak’s return draws Waverly into an unlikely alliance—and a passion that eclipses all her fantasies.
Hatred for Riven has sustained Tarak this long. But only Waverly’s love can give him the strength to claim eternity with her . . .
The last thing I need is a big fancy wedding, a wife, and a baby. I’m not one to get tied down to a ball and chain. That’s like bringing a sandwich to the buffet...hard pass...
The press calls me a walking, talking temptation and NYC’s most eligible bachelor.
I’m a player and there are lots of sweet delicious games to be played! If the shoe fits..big grin!
Until a mysterious package arrives with some epic and compromising photos.Crap... it’s clearly ME. Note to self, no more tattoos.
The only thing that can save my political career, from this scandal, is the only thing I don’t want.
Surprisingly, I don’t have to manipulate her to say yes. Frig, I love it when everything goes my way.
She needed a marriage out of convenience too!
Until she’s taken and gone...Now, I will do anything to get her back, feel her soft creamy skin on mine, protect her and make her mine for keeps.
If you love fake relationships, and an opposites-attract romance, then grab this kindle page-turning standalone today! When a spoiled billionaire bad boy falls in love, he falls hard. Watch the player get played! No cliff hangers, no cheating, and of course a HEA!
Everyone knows I’m the next logical choice for CEO when my mother steps down. What everyone seems to doubt, however, is my ability to have a life outside of work that includes a loving relationship. So when my brother bets that I can’t connect deeply enough with a woman to win her heart—and my mother makes winning that bet a condition of my promotion—I accept the challenge. Too bad I never considered what would happen if I was the one to fall in love when all is said and done.
The walls around my heart have always been impenetrable. But the gorgeous billionaire who suddenly seems so interested in me, a poor dancer, doesn’t seem to mind. I’d like to say I’m not flattered. Or tempted by him. But…I am. And for the first time in my life, I’m wondering what it would be like to let my guard down and truly take a shot at happily ever after. If only I could shake this feeling that he’s keeping something from me…
The bet was simple. The aftermath? Well, that could be the best—or worst—thing that ever happened to them…
Law #1 is a sweet, chemistry-filled, soulmate-finding tale about a grumpy billionaire and a poor dancer. It is packed with great kisses and relatable, lovable characters as well as heartwarmingly funny moments. It's the first book in the Laws of Love series.
