Welcome to the Best of 2012 Giveaway Hop organized by the wonderful team at IAmAReaderNotAWriter.com who are keeping romance flourishing. Below is my list of top favorite books of 2012 either published this year or ones that I have read in 2012.
1) Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran
Though the romantic aspects of Moran’s fictional interpretation of Madame Tussaud’s life is down played, the story of the 18th century wax modeller crafted by Moran is intriguing making the story engaging and stimulating emotions. Moran creates a credible back story for a woman that few people know much about, but the museums around the world with her namesake are known widely.
2) Firelight by Kristen Callihan
A historical/paranormal romance that keeps readers entranced page after page absorbed in the worlds of the supernatural and human desire.
3) Mistletoe Fever by Jennifer Snow
Published in 2011 by the Wild Rose Press, this is a novella I read this year and found delightful. The building up of Piper and Alex’s romance is a fun ride that leaves a lasting impression about finding love.
4) The Devil’s Thief by Samantha Kane
Published in 2012 by the Loveswept imprint, this Regency romance entangles the reader in the lives of Julianna Harte and Alasdair Sharp as the two argue over who is the rightful owner of the Stewart Pearl, a gem which Alasdair inherited from his family and agreed to give to Julianna if she slept with him. How these two resolve their argument comes to a happy ending for all involved.
5) Lord Midnight by Donna Cummings
Sensual and suspenseful, this historical romance is a true page turner never missing a step to hold the readers attention.
6) Montana Dreams by Jillian Hart
A modern western with a touch old fashioned, gentlemanly courtesy, which has seemed to have gone out with rotary phones. It’s love American style or what was once American style.
7) One Knight in Brooklyn by Casea Major
A time traveling tale with a romance that can weater any storm, overcome any obstacle, and keep the reader soaring.
8) Bound by Night by Naomi Clark
A historical paranormal romance that incites the imagination and stirs carnal desires.
9) Sword and Lute by Cate Rowan
A fantasy adventure that brings together the mortal lute player Amara and an immortal Taso who possesses magical powers. This love story brings a tear to the reader's eye in the sweetest way.
