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).

Her Photographer Phoenix: A Paranormal Romance (Lone Dragons Book 2)

by Alice Summerfield


Phoenix shifter and photographer Benton Hwong has traveled the world in search of two things: memorable moments and his fated soul mate.

Sparks fly, and soon the firebirds aren't the only ones dancing the opening steps of a fiery romance on the banks of Lake Keris. But can Benton persuade her that she's his soul mate?


Renowned for its beauty and deadly dangers - especially to dragons - Keris Island is the last place that a dragon shifter like Dr. Ellis Hale should be and the only place that she can conduct her research into the secret lives of the firebirds that she loves. Ellis is willing to risk everything – even her life – in pursuit of her dreams, but curiosity may very well kill the dragon. Permanently. Can Ellis avoid a grisly end?

Pregnant With The Bad Boy (The Big Bad Braddock Brothers)

by Lydia Hall


I’ve been known to keep my life simple.
When I say simple, I mean devoid of a girlfriend.
Don’t get me wrong… Women are wonderful.
To me, they are like vacations – 
temporary fun.

But what do I do when Amber unexpectedly rents a space in my heart?
One night was all it was supposed to be.
Her skin felt like silk.
Don’t even get me started on her soft strands.
She was like a dream in my arms.
A dream that turned into a nightmare after I knew I wanted her again… and again.

I don’t do this sort of a thing. I’m known to replace love with drugs.
But that reality changed quickly when Amber gave me the news I never thought I’d get.
Three life changing words – I am pregnant.
Well, those words were followed by something like – I don’t want you in my life if you keep up with your shenanigans.

My world has been shaken to the core.
I could lose everything – My heart, my child, my family.

But will Amber ever believe that I’m a changed man even if I turn my life upside down?

From death, he gives me immortality. From old age and loneliness, he bestows youth and ethereal beauty. The Seelie Court's castle caters to me, but its people want something from me. Being in Thelan's world means belonging to him entirely. My body, my heart, my very soul must be his.

Widows of Somerset (Timeless Regency Collection Book 15)

by Heather B. Moore


Rules of the Secret Society of Young Widows:

Rule 1: Be a widow.
Rule 2: Have an impeccable reputation.
Rule 3: Don't fall in love again.


AN HEIR TO SPARE by Rebecca Connolly
Widowhood has changed much for Anna—Lady Lyndham—but an unconventional heir to the estate was not something she had anticipated. Nor had she anticipated that he would have no intention of forcing her out, although he has every right to. And she certainly did not anticipate finding him handsome, charming, and unfailingly generous. But Ned Richards, the new Lord Lyndham, has a world of surprises in store for her, and not anticipating them will become quite the adventure.


THE WIDOW OF LAVENDER COTTAGE by Jen Geigle Johnson
As a widow, Lillian Hunter has never been in love and plans to never marry again, so the rules of the Secret Society of Young Widows suit her just fine. Her days are spent attempting to transform her newly inherited Lavender Cottage into a livable space until Oliver Wentworth shows up, asking for her late husband. Anxious to establish himself as a landed gentry in Somerset, Oliver is none too pleased to discover that a widow lives alone in a tiny run down cottage bordering his new property. The fact that she’s young and attractive only adds frustration to his sense of responsibility over her. And confound her, she challenges his every attempt to help manage her affairs.


A PROMISE FORGOTTEN by Heather B. Moore
Charlotte Ashford never thought she’d marry a vicar, and she never thought she’d find herself widowed with a young child to care for on her own. She certainly never thought she’d return to Somerset to live with her mother again, and Charlotte never thought she’d see him again. But Lord Wilshore has never forgotten her, and he has never forgotten their promise made long ago. Charlotte would love nothing more than for Lord Wilshore to forgive her, but too much heartache and too much time might make that impossible. Friendship is all she can hope for, but that hope may be dashed as well.

Escort

by Skye Warren


"Escort is stunningly sexy and staggeringly heartfelt-gorgeously written and saturated with pure, unadulterated desire. Five Mon Dieu stars!" - Sierra Simone, USA Today bestselling author


A male escort. His virgin client. What happens when one night isn't enough?

I'm an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction. There shouldn't be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L'Etoile, everything changes.

1) For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me.

2) Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more.

3) Except that... she's a virgin.

I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can't I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account.

But once I realize one night with her won't be enough, I'm the one who's screwed.

"ESCORT is perfection only Skye Warren can deliver--a poetically erotic tale of exquisitely damaged characters, devastating secrets, revenge and redemption." - Samanthe Beck, USA Today bestselling author

"Hypnotically romantic...this book reads like a sensual dream and I didn't want to wake up." - Tessa Bailey, New York Times bestselling author
