Definition of the "Romantic Suspense Genre": The Romantic Suspense genre is oftentimes the bestselling subgenre of Romance, though that can vascillate with historical romance.  The elements of a romance need to be there--a budding relationship between two people that overcomes obstacles and succeeds in the end.  But, the critical elements of suspense in that romance setting also need to be interwoven expertly.  Those include action, adventure, and oftentimes, a heroine that has been wronged and a hero who attempts to help right that wrong.  Through their work to right the wrong, they are brought closer together and what would you know?  They fall in love.  Honestly, you can think of many, many Disney movie scripts for this storyline (start with Frozen).

 

Some examples of the top ebooks in the Romantic Suspense genre are Mary Stewart (Nine Coaches Waiting), Tiffany Snow (No Turning Back), Colleen Hoover (Never, Never), and Melinda Leigh (She Can Run).

Knocking Boots

by Willow Winters


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.

Lost: A Mountain Man Rescue Romance

by J.S. Scott/ Lane Parker


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 beautiful.

She's sexy.

She's smart.

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 Impossible Julian Strande: Complete Box Set

by Kathryn Ann Kingsley


A sinister illusionist wants Alice... and he won't take no for an answer.
Read the whole series with all the deleted content included!


As eager as Alice was to start her new job, she got far more than she bargained for when entering employment at Strande Estate.

Inexplicable noises.
Haunting legends.
A sexy-as-they-come amateur magician.
And…an enticingly wicked ghost.

Alice didn’t believe in anything paranormal when she arrived, but each day that passes leaves her questioning things she never thought she would—like whether or not her gorgeous boss was as magically gifted in the bedroom as he was at illusions.

But deep within the walls of the Strande manor, a malevolent spirit has taken a keen interest in the new caretaker. Thrilled to have a new plaything at his disposal, he has devilish games planned for the unsuspecting Alice. Will she make it out of the Strande Estate alive? Or be lured into the seductive darkness?

_____
Author’s Note:
The story of the Impossible Julian Strande is what I would call villain romance. The main male character is devilish. While there is a happily ever after for both characters at the end, it may be a darker journey to get there.

The Widowers of the Aristocracy: Boxed Set

by Linda Rae Sande


Four full-length sensual Regency romances make up this boxed set about four widowers. 

When Isabella believes she has witnessed her mother's murder at the hands of her father in THE DREAM OF A DUCHESS, she rides off to London in search of the man her mother always said she could go to in case of trouble. To keep her safe, Octavius, Duke of Huntington, agrees to hide Isabella in his country estate—and to allow her access to his stables and horses. But what about his heart?

When archaeologist Jasper, Viscount Henley, is caught kissing Marianne, he marries her despite knowing she's nearly blind. Determined to show his new bride the wonders of the Roman world as part of his next expedition—their wedding trip—Jasper will do whatever it takes for her to see more clearly, even if his own vision is clouded by a revelation in THE VISION OF A VISCOUNTESS.

When the headmistress of London’s premiere finishing school dies, her son, Theodore Streater, is desperate to find a replacement. He’s a bank clerk and has no idea how to run a girl’s school. So when Daisy Albright appears to apply for the position, he hires her on the spot—even though he would rather hire her as his mistress. Left with only one arm from the last war, Teddy would prefer to take a wife, but who will marry a one-armed man? A former spy, Daisy has a secret she’d rather her employer not know, especially as she grows more fond of him. When she discovers what Mrs. Streater had already arranged on behalf of the school, though, her future employment and the fate of the school will be at risk in THE CONUNDRUM OF A CLERK.

What is real and what is fiction when it comes to Viscount Marcus Lancaster's life? A widower, he's imagined a life with Charity, a widowed countess, and he's determined to make it become a reality. Never mind that the matchmaker wants nothing to do with marriage. But she does have a secret desire in THE CHARITY OF A VISCOUNT.

Diving into Love (Starlight Ridge Book 1)

by Kat Bellemore


She already left one fiancé. She didn’t need another.

When Bree Garrett’s former college roommate invites Bree to move to Starlight Ridge, a small tourist town on the Californian coast, she is all too happy to leave the deserts of New Mexico and the memories of her former life. She only has three conditions:

One- No one can find out about her fear of water—totally embarrassing when you live next to the ocean.

Two- No seafood. She can't stomach it. Yeah, she sees the irony of points number one and two.

Three- No blind dates. The last thing she needs is a relationship. Her ex-fiancé would agree.

Easier said than done when the only job available is at a surf shop and the owner, Caleb, is under the impression that Bree has applied to be a scuba instructor, and not a cashier, as she had intended.

Bree tries to clear up the misunderstanding, but it’s hard when she seems to lose her voice—and her breath—every time Caleb is near. How could she not when he happens to be attractive, single and, as it turns out, also doesn't like seafood?

Bree and Caleb struggle against the pull of the tide that seems determined to bring them together. But, despite their differences, maybe this is one battle that is okay to lose.

Diving into Love is the first book in the Starlight Ridge romance series. If you can’t get enough of witty banter, moonlit strolls on the beach, and swoon-worthy kisses, you’ll love this sweet romance.
