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).

Cross My Heart: A Second Chance Small Town Medical Romance (Mountainview Hospital Book 1)

by Kaylin Evans


Ryder Cane has always been one step ahead of me.


I was a JV swimmer, he swam varsity.
I was on the homecoming court, he was the friggin’ king.
I got straight As, he was the valedictorian.

And now? I’m Mountainview Hospital’s newest nurse but Ryder built the whole damn hospital!

When he asks me to be his date to the grand opening gala, I know it’s just a favor to an old friend. Ryder’s so far out of my league we’re not even playing the same sport.

Besides – we tried this once before and I know how our love story ends. We burned hot and heavy for one month in high school and then he left me for the head cheerleader.

So why is he kissing me goodnight, and why am I letting him?

I thought Speed Dating would be a waste of time, and then my hunky stepbrothers show up with their gorgeous friends Nick and Oscar.


I'm mortified: they might think I'm an easy lay or that any of this is my idea. It's not, I was dragged here by my BFF.

It is also enough time to discover my stepbrothers both have the hots for me.


Matthew Harris has the decency and good sense to know we must not do anything about our mutual attraction, not when we live under the same roof.

However, his twin brother, Luke wastes none of his seven minutes on small talk. He wants to take me home to do the filthy things I've only dreamed of.

And I'm tempted to say yes.


How can I choose one of their friends when all four men want me?

Whatever happens, I don't want to mess up my future career as a respectable children's nurse. I just want to settle down and have a big family of my own someday.

SPEED DATE is a sizzling romance with a very happy ever after ending.

*A full-length standalone romance. *No cliffhanger. *No cheating.

Jack of Thorns (Inheritance Book 1)

by AK Faulkner


"The thrill ... will keep readers flipping pages well past the point where they probably should have gone to bed." - Stephani Hren for IndieReader

Laurence Riley might be able to see the future, but he can't see a way to fix his messed-up life. He can't control anything—not his supernatural talents, not his drug addiction, and not his violent ex-boyfriend. Laurence needs help and he knows it. A lifelong pagan, he turns to his god... and he gets Jack. Jack can help Laurence tame his powers and take control of his life. But it comes at a price: Laurence will need to keep him fed with regular offerings of sex. For the old Laurence, that would've been a pleasure. Problem is, Laurence has met Quentin.

Quentin is devastatingly handsome, way out of Laurence's league (like British nobility levels of out-of-his-league), and unbearably chaste. If that weren’t enough to keep Laurence away, Quentin's wild telekinesis is even more uncontrollable than Laurence's precognition. But Laurence doesn't want anyone else, and Jack is getting hungry.

Then Laurence foresees a glimpse of Jack's true plan. It will leave a trail of death across San Diego--and Laurence has been helping him do it. The past has taught him that the future can't be changed. But if Laurence and Quentin can't stop Jack, there won't be any future at all.

Jack of Thorns is the first book in a dark urban fantasy series where X-Men meets The Magicians.

"Striking prose and characters make this opening fantasy installment worthwhile." - Kirkus Reviews

"AK Faulkner thrusts together two deliciously flawed main characters ... then weaves an empowering plot of destiny, inheritance, and self-improvement—all while letting the reader languor in the glow of a glorious slow burn romance." - Indie Reader

"Mixing the paranormal with the deeply personal, A.K. Faulkner has delivered a bold debut novel with Jack of Thorns in what stacks up to be a thrilling new series." - Self Publishing Review

But when a beautiful, lonely human female visits him one night…suddenly, he craves her with an intensity that should frighten him while her soft moans and lush curves drive him to madness.

It was only supposed to be one night…

Now Eve can’t stay away.

I was Laura’s downfall.
Problem was, she was mine too.

Loving The Enemy

by Mia Faye


Thanks for the fun…Andre.

That’s what the note with orange juice and a muffin next to my bed says when I wake up.
That’s it. No phone number, no text.
I don’t even know his last name or where he lives.
I mean - really? We nearly make the king-size bed in our hotel room break down (twice!) and my ONS from last night doesn’t even bother to say goodbye?
Gosh, I hope I never see this jerk again.
But it seems like the Universe has different plans for me.
Because when I start my new job, guess who’s my new boss?
Right, Mr. I’m-so-handsome-and-I-know-it.
Getting a tooth pulled is fun compared to being his assistant.
He’s cold, arrogant and demanding, and nothing I ever do seems good enough for him.
If I didn’t desperately need the money, I’d quit right away.
That is until… the unthinkable happens.

When the fifth pregnancy test shows two lines, I must face the truth:
I’m carrying Mr. Bosshole’s baby!


This enemies-to-lovers romance features a hero with a big... ego & romantic HEA that will leave you swooning!
"Loving The Enemy" can be read as a stand-alone.

“Heartbroken” doesn’t even cover it. She’s never been more lost in her life.

Elise and her mother had always lived in Los Angeles. Her mother was an actress and a single mother, who never revealed who Elise’s father was.

Now, Elise finds a secret diary within her mother’s things—one that reveals a portion of her mother’s life that Elise never knew about.

In the late ‘70s, her mother worked as the personal assistant to acclaimed actress, Jane Seymour. And during this time, she journeyed to the glorious Michigan-based Mackinac Island, for the film, Somewhere in Time.

While there, Elise’s mother met a man who changed her life forever. He must be Elise’s father. And Elise is determined to find out.

Now, Elise must decide what to do next. How will she grapple with her mother’s death? And could a trip to Mackinac Island change her life, like it did her mother’s?

She thought all the adventure in her life was over. She thought she would never find happiness again.

But she’s beginning to think the adventure has only just begun.

Dive into this women's fiction boxset for a trek of a lifetime: from the glittering sands of Los Angeles, all the way to that gem of an island between the southern and northern peninsulas of Michigan, Mackinac Island, where secrets have been kept for the previous forty years.
