Read Free Romance Novels

Whether you are looking for romantic stories of southern bells longing for lost lives or steamy, hot romance stories, PublicBookshelf has free online romance novels to meet your romance reading needs.

Today's romance novels are not your mother's romance novels. While some titles still center on lonely women longing for lost loves, today's authors are more likely to include career driven heroines or vampires searching for love in all the wrong places.

There are many types of romance novels - historical, erotic, paranormal, multicultural, inspirational, suspense, and contemporary romance. Each type typically follows the format of traditional romantic stories, but writers today can add their own personal twist and put the hero and heroine in any situation at any place and time.

While the core of any good romantic book is the budding relationship between two characters, don't be surprised if you find some awesome action sequences or side-splitting humor subplots. It is through these attention-grabbing scenes that the characters are allowed to grow and learn more about each other. After all, real life is more than romance, and books typically mirror real life in the most important aspects.
