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).
Two weeks on the road with my boss? Business as usual.
Two weeks on the road with my newer, hotter boss that I had a one-night stand with four years ago? A disaster waiting to happen.
It was a one-time thing with a man I knew from work.
His name was Oliver Black. The rich and handsome manager of the Botsford Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas.
Dark hair. Icy blue eyes. A cocky smirk with dimples deep enough to trip on.
No one has to know, he said.
And no one did know... except maybe the guests trying to sleep in the suite next door.
I didn't know he'd eventually get promoted to my department.
I definitely didn't know my boss would assign me to travel the country with him to keep his raging ego in check.
Two weeks. Five locations. A whole lot of hotel rooms in-between.
This trip will either solidify our business relationship as totally platonic friends and nothing more, or destroy my career.
But we already know the answer to that question, don't we?
I'm screwed. Literally.

Gaire is a mermaid with a serious problem... her fated mate, Calder Brumen, doesn't know she's real.
But when Gaire learns an evil sea nymph is determined to kill Calder, she vows to protect him.
To save Calder, Gaire defies the Queen Mother, breaks Mer law, and brings an unconscious Calder back to the underwater Mer city... only to sink herself in an ocean of trouble.
After the Keeper of the Scrolls is murdered—the first murder in a thousand years, Gaire is drawn into an intricate web of lies and deceptions, centuries old.
Gaire must restore the rightful royal succession...
It's the only way to safeguard Calder Brumen and preserve the love growing between them.
Local painter Calder Brumen has three goals in life.
◆ Be the best artist in San Francisco...
◆ Make good on his promise to his best friend...
◆ Marry the mermaid with the glittery leg tattoos...
When the vanishing woman leaves sandy footprints behind, Calder decides she’s more than a figment of his imagination, and his infatuation becomes an obsession.
But a mysterious temptress worms her way into his best friend’s world, and Calder has to figure out how to save his childhood pal from the evil clutches of a witch... without losing his chance at landing his happily ever after.
Ten years ago, I left her on the dance floor and disappeared.
I needed to make something of myself; to be good enough for her.
Cassie. My best friend. My one true love.
Now I’m back in our small town, and ready to prove my worth.
I’m a billionaire and somewhat of a celebrity.
But Cassie is totally unimpressed. In fact, she almost seems put off by my wealth and fame.
As the town veterinarian, I hire her to take care of my two horses,
Hoping to find a way back into her good graces.
But just when it seems we’ve finally found our way back,
The trappings of my newfound celebrity rear their ugly heads.
Now Cassie’s the one that’s left me in the dust.
Now, three years later, fate has brought me face to face with her again,
And the secret she took with her.
West Golden—so easy to hate, yet so hard to resist.
Don’t let that pretty face of his fool you. He isn’t the boy next door, or the kind you trust with your heart. He’s the devil in designer jeans, with all the charm of a bona fide psycho.
He swears I did something to cross him before I even stepped foot inside Cypress Prep, but it’s a lie. No one knows better than me that I’m all out of chances. One more misstep and I can kiss my future goodbye, which means I can’t possibly be guilty of whatever he thinks I’ve done.
West marks me with a target anyway, and as this town’s football star, no one dares to go against him. His money, status, and the loyalty of his equally entitled brothers makes him seem untouchable. Only, I know better than that.
This false god isn’t infallible like he wants the world to believe. Whenever I stare into those devilish green eyes, I see it plain as day. The chink in his armor. His one and only weakness.
The King of Cypress Prep has finally met his match, and taking him down just became an inside job.
The Golden Boys are all smokin’ hot, but there’s only one guy for Blue Riley, which means this romance isn’t a reverse harem. Also, full disclosure, this saga does contain strong bully themes. So, if you’re not into romances where hate turns into love (well … eventually), and if you don’t like your heroes of the unapologetically alpha variety, this might not be the book for you. There is no rape or dubious consent whatsoever. However, due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.
This series is sure to give you GOSSIP GIRL and ONE TREE HILL vibes, and the angst will keep you burning through the pages to find out what happens next. One-click and get lost in this series today!

Another charity dinner? An auction? I think I’m gonna heave.
“This is the last one,” I tell my personal assistant. After thousands of these things, a lifetime spent building an empire, and traveling the world, I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.
Who I’m looking for.
What I really want.
I need someone to share all this with.
Not just anyone. The one.
I’ve searched, I’ve waited. If it doesn’t happen tonight, which I highly doubt it will, I’m finished.
One more stupid dinner. Then maybe I’ll just buy a mountain, go live in a cave.
Two words strike a morbid fear into my anti-social, awkward, very single, and lonely existence: Charity Auction.
Did I sign up for this?
My time in exchange for a charity donation, my wages paid by the owner of the company I work for. Every dollar donated matched by the man himself.
The only two words that actually get me to said Charity auction.
Once I find out he’ll be there… once I find out I might even get to see him in person… Maybe even meet him…
But nothing’s ever that easy, I know that.
My boss from hell seems determined to make not only my day off miserable but goes out of her way to make sure I might not even make it at all.
That is until I meet the man himself.
Way before the bidding starts. Long before the hammer falls, I know I’m in deep and we both might just end up with a lot more than we bargained for.
For better or for worse.
“Your mom was right about you, you’re a troublemaker.”
I’ll never forget those teasing words.
He was forbidden fruit, a completely off limits temptation I knew could destroy me.
Not only was he my dad's best friend,
He’s the father to my very secret baby.
It wasn't supposed to feel right when he touched me.
It was supposed to be one night of passion.
A secret…a scandal that we’d never tell.
So the moment I found out I was pregnant,
Left without a word.
I thought I'd escaped my past when fate brings us back to New York,
And face to face with the man I left behind.
He's still single, and every bit the center of every one of my fantasies.
The moment our eyes meet,
I fall all over again.
There are going to be questions...lot's of them.
How do I tell him that our one scandalous night year ago,
Resulted in one hell of a secret?
“I can’t lose my daughter. She’s my baby girl. My everything. So…” He took a deep breath. “Whitney, will you marry me?”
When hot single dad Kyle Webber asks me this question, I’m in shock.
After all, it’s been years since we’ve seen each other.
Although I’ve never been able to forget him.
That’s what your first big love does to you, right?
I made the biggest mistake of my life when I left our small town to chase my dreams in LA.
He went on to marry Josie, the biggest b*itch in town.
A woman who gives selfish a whole new name.
No surprise that it didn’t last.
But now she wants to get sole custody of their sweet little daughter Katie.
To convince the court that he has a stable family life, Kyle asks me for help.
He wants us to fake a marriage. To pretend to be in love.
Really? Live with him in the same house? Sleep in the same bed?
It sounds like a plan destined to end in misery. My misery.
Because since I’ve met Kyle again, my heart screams one sentence over and over again:
“Please, SAY IT’S NOT FAKE!”
Full-length enemies to lovers fake marriage romance with a Happily Ever After! Contains a preview of "Unexpected Heat".
He’s not exactly who he appears to be. But then again, neither is she…
I’ve never felt as out of my league as I did when I met Sydney Frost.
Not in the years I’ve spent starting successful companies or since. Working for a prestigious firm gives me status and power, and I’m already a master at charming my way through a crowd—or into the bedroom. One new office colleague should be a piece of cake to win over.
Ms. Frost, however, is giving my efforts a chilly reception. Time to remind her that I’m not afraid to live up to my name, either…
On the surface, it looks like I have it all: a new, influential job, a nice salary, and the hottest young executive in the company falling over himself to introduce me to the best New York City has to offer.
It’s all a lie.
My name is Sadie Keating, not Sydney Frost, and I’m an undercover agent for the FBI on a case that could make or break my career. Chase Maitlin, my sexy and persistent would-be suitor, is the prime suspect in a major cross-agency investigation.
I’m the rookie UC assigned to get close to him… but not too close.

Meet the men of Manning Grove, three small-town cops and brothers, who meet the women who will change the rest of their lives...
Big city party-girl Amanda Barber has been spoiled most of her life. But life for Amanda suddenly becomes a major challenge: adapting to small-town life, dealing with her special needs brother, and constantly butting heads with a frustrating local cop.
As a police officer and former Marine, "responsibility" is Max Bryson's middle name. Never having been in a serious relationship, he has no plans for one in the near future. He likes being his own man. And even if he were interested in a serious relationship, he certainly wouldn't choose someone so immature and irresponsible as Amanda. But no matter how hard he tries, he can't get sexy Amanda out of his head or his heart. Watching her mature in front of his eyes, his protectiveness towards her only strengthens.
Bossy and possessive aren't the only words Amanda uses to describe this frustrating cop. She can't deny just looking at the man makes her tremble. But she's done with having anyone control her and this man isn't going to be any different. Or is he?
Officer Marc Bryson doesn’t believe women should be in law enforcement. Ever. When his older brother, Max, is promoted to the small town’s police chief the first thing he does is hire a woman fresh out of the academy. Then makes Marc her Field Training Officer.
Determined to follow in her late father’s footsteps, Leah Grant has the moxie to break any glass ceiling that stands in the way from becoming a police officer. Even if that means proving to her coach—who only wants her in his bed and not in the field—she’s worthy of being a permanent member of the force.
Working in a man’s world, Leah challenges Marc’s misconceptions about women in the line of duty. But as they struggle to separate their work life from their undeniable chemistry, things continue to steam up and get a little kinky. These two officers of the law must toe the line after being caught red-handed.
In the end, can Leah prove to Marc that she is good as backup as well as in bed?
As a former Marine, Matt Bryson has dealt with PTSD ever since coming home from the Middle East. He finds himself fortunate to be able to return to his job as a cop at the local police department with his brothers Max and Marc.
Dr. Carly Stephens works hard as an obstetrician at the local hospital, struggling to pay off her medical school loans, financially support her elderly parents, and save money to adopt a baby. Unable to have children, she still longs for one of her very own.
Instantly attracted to the Dictator Doctor, Matt finds Carly easily brings him to his knees both emotionally and physically. What starts out only as a convenient sexual relationship turns into a whole lot more when dealing with their pasts and their future. Especially since Matt doesn’t ever want children.
Matt and Carly find themselves on a passionate and emotional journey that can either bring them together or rip them apart.
