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).

Tiger Queen: A Reverse Harem Romance

by Cassie Cole


Move over Joe Exotic--there’s a Tiger Queen in town.

I only visited Crazy Carl’s Zoo that day as a joke.
I certainly didn’t expect to walk away with a job offer.
But Crazy Carl is gone, leaving dozens of tigers behind.
His three sons need my help moving the animals to proper homes.
And as ambitious as their plan is, the men themselves are even more enticing.

David is the eldest brother, a jacked athlete with steel-blue eyes and a master plan for the zoo.
Anthony is a cute younger version of his brother. With his messy hair, a body full of lean muscle, and an easy sense of humor, it’s impossible not to smile when he’s around.
And Jake? He’s your typical middle child with an attitude. But the delicious tattoos covering his body make it tough to stay mad at him, especially with his propensity to work shirtless in the sun...

Now we’re working together every day.
Living under the same roof at night.
Getting hot and sweaty--and not just from taking care of the animals.
Can I resist their charm and focus on the job?
Or will I truly become the Tiger Queen?

TIGER QUEEN is a scorching reverse harem love story filled with humor, suspense, and excitement. HEA guaranteed!

All Of Me (The Bridesmaids Club, Book 1)

by Leeanna Morgan


Four friends. Twenty-two bridesmaids' dresses.
One random act of kindness that will change their lives forever.

Tess has given up looking for Mr. Right, but that doesn’t mean she’s given up on love. When she reads a newspaper article about a young couple who've had everything stolen from their home, including four bridesmaids dresses, she knows she has to help.

But by helping the bride, Tess risks exposing a past she doesn't want anyone to know about. She does everything she can to minimize the danger she's in, but she does the one thing guaranteed to destroy everything - she falls in love with the wrong man.

Logan Allen has spent most of his career reporting on the news from around the world. When a letter arrives from Afghanistan, the trauma he's been living with is about to explode back into his life. He betrayed a small Afghan village and Tess thinks he’s betrayed her.

From their first random act of kindness comes an experience Logan and Tess will never forget. And maybe, if they work together, they can create a future that’s better than anything they've left behind.

Whatever for Hire: A Magical Romantic Comedy (with a body count)

by R.J. Blain


Warning: This novel contains excessive humor, action, excitement, adventure, magic, romance, and bodies. Proceed with caution.

Fetching a cat out of a tree should've been a quick, easy fifty bucks in Kanika's pocket. Instead, following one stray thought, the devil pays her a visit and leaves her with a debt to repay.

Owing the devil a favor is bad enough, but her life is turned upside down when it's time to pay the piper. First, she doesn't want the world's sexiest firefighting, kitten-rescuing Scot as an unwilling companion. Since that wasn't bad enough, she doesn't know who wants him dead or why, but there's no way in hell she's going to let someone mar his perfection.

Add in the fact the devil wants an heir, and there's only one thing she knows for certain: she's in for one hell of a job.

Fragged (Gamer Girls Book 4)

by Kitty Cox


Some things are worth fighting for.

Riley's life is better than it's ever been before. She has the love of her life, a family made from those she cares about, an adorable "little" rescue dog, and even her horse business is doing pretty good. Everything is great. Everything is wonderful. At least on the surface.

But an online hate group has her in their crosshairs. She's made a fool of them too many times, and now they're out for blood. The literal kind, not the virtual stuff. When they say they want to "frag" her, they aren't talking about online kills in a video game. Now, the threats have moved to real life – with real guns.

While she has an army of friends willing to fight beside her, she wasn't ready for this. She'd prepared for some bullying. Maybe a few more embarrassing stories to come out. But this?

Real people are being hurt. People she cares about might be next. Picking a fight online is one thing, but is her need to prove that women deserve respect really worth taking a risk this big?

Someone's going to get hurt.
And she's terrified it won't be her.


The Gamer Girls series features strong women and the men who love them. Knowledge about gaming and/or gamer culture is not necessary to enjoy this story. Graphic language and situations that are suitable for a mature audience are included. FRAGGED is a standalone novel which moves forward a larger story.

It's a simple plan. Only pretend. That’s what they told themselves, anyway. But that was before they realized their friendship was on the line if their marriage of convenience went south. Before the kiss that changed everything…
