Looking for a clean romance recommendation? Here are 10 of my recent favorites that I shared on KSL's Studio 5!
Ashes on the Moor
by Sarah M. Eden
Sarah’s book are always sweet and thoughtful. This is a Victorian era romance story. Evangeline is forced to work in a gritty factory town as a teacher in order to earn her inheritance and Dermot is an Irish brick mason, far below her class. A really nice story about fighting against all odds and quiet strength.
by Jen Geigel Johnson
The premise of this is so fantastic and you get it all: secrets, action, daring, and romance. It’s a play on “The Scarlet Pimpernel” only the secret hero is a heroine. So set during the French Revolution and the reign of Madame Guillotine, Scarlet sets out to clandestinely to rescue a handsome Comte.
The House on Foster Hill
by Jamie Jo Wright
If you like your romances a little darker, this is the one. Centered on an old abandoned house, the narrative flips between two women—one in the present, one 100 years before, both trying to fight the traumas of their pasts, solve the mysteries of this house, and open their hearts to love. So, so good. One of those hard to put down reads.
Perils of Wrath
by Elsie Park
Going back to the Middle Ages in this one, and the time of knights in shining armor. Aurdi’s horrible step-father decides the only way to control her and prepare her for marriage is to have her disciplined as a knight’s squire. But when Sir Roland takes up the task things go a little bit differently than planned. Such a cool book: lots of fun banter between the two leads, lots of fun to have a woman trained as a knight, and the sweet redemption of love.
by Traci Hunter Abramson
Okay, romantic suspense lovers, here ya go. In this rapid paced romance we have the glamour of the TV world, the danger of terrorists and toxic bombs, fake relationships, dangerous pursuits, and complicated love. A great get-lost-in-it read.
by Melanie Jacobson
She’s an ambitious sports reporter and he’s a professional beach volleyball player who hates reporters. But when the pair is forced to spend time together there’s no denying the chemistry. A chill beach read with lots of fabulous character interaction.
Check Me Out
by Becca Wilhite
This is just one of those books that makes you smile the whole time you’re reading. Greta is an assistant librarian in a small town. She’s ready for love and her best friend Will decides to help her out. In this witty, charming ode to Cyrano de Bergerac, Greta looks for love in all the wrong places before she realizes it’s been right there all along.
Miss Wilton's Waltz
by Josi S. Kilpack
I’m a big Josi Kilpack fan—her books never disappoint. In this new one Lenora is an incredibly shy musician who prefers to hide behind her piano than socialize in Bath society. But when a new, difficult student arrives in her music class, along with her handsome Uncle, Lenora’s whole world is thrown off center. It’s a great story of overcoming mistakes, working through difficulties, and sweet romance.
By the Stars
by Lindsay B. Ferguson
Going to WWII in By the Stars, and Cal and Kate’s tender love story. Friends since childhood, Cal and Kate’s relationship blooms into sweet romance but war steps in to pull them apart. It takes faith, endurance, and perseverance to survive the obstacles between them.
A Thousand Sleepless Nights
by Teri Harman
Matilda wakes with no memory of the last six years. Beside her on the bed sits a book and an antique typewriter. A couple hundred miles away Henry wakes up to the same situation. Through magic, mystery, and love, Matilda and Henry have to fight their way back to each other and face the grief of their lost past.
