contemporary romance novels
wild hearts romance
This is not your grandmother’s romance novel. There isn’t a bodice to be ripped in sight, the hero is definitely not a count, and Scarlet O’Hara will not be asking God to be her witness. While romance novels set in any time period after World War II fall under the umbrella of contemporary romance, the genre is most associated with narratives that happen in our own time period in a world very close to the one we live in.
While the wealthy and boisterous alpha hero abounds, you’ll find a smorgasbord of potential book boyfriends within the genre. From the rising sports star to buff firemen, lonely ranchers and jilted rock stars, there really is a hero for everyone.
The heroine can be just as varied. Young, old or somewhere in between, slim or curvy, shy or outgoing. Whichever way it goes, she’s likely to be instantly loveable and definitely relatable. She might not be that focused on love with her own goals to reach, but love is coming for her regardless.
One thing is certain: there will be fireworks, there will be romance and there will be a happily ever after.
