(Top Ten Tuesday) British Romance Authors!
For this week's genre freebie I've decided to list 10 British authors who write romances that I adore!
Why British authors you may ask?
Well, I am British and I love romance! However, most of the authors I read tend to be American and that just seems... Not wrong but a little unloyal to my compatriots so this is my shout out to them.
I see you and I read you!
(Although it was more than a little bit difficult to find you on my kindle... Sorry!)
Jodi Ellen Malpas
Okay, so Malpas is probably a bad place to start since she's well known on a global romance reading scale... But still, she's British so she totally counts for this list.
Another romance author who is British but writes mostly American based romances... I guess it is a massive market and you write to your audience!
Oh bloody hell... Okay, I know. Another British romance author who writes books not based in the UK but at least a fair few of them have British characters! (Or, at least, Sweet Home/Rome and Eternally North do!)
Okay, confession time, I haven't actually read any of Hibbert's books but I love her twitter game, she's British and I DO have Get A Life, Chloe Brown on the TBR just waiting on me reading it.
Fingers crossed she actually bases some books here or this list is going off the rails rather quickly... 😐
Kelk's I Heart series will forever be a favourite even though it dives down the rabbit hole more times than I can count... And I'm totally ignoring the fact that the main character Angela runs away to America. She is British and Kelk writes quirky British gals perfectly!
Okay... Need to dig deeper now... Need British authors who write about British characters in Britain!
Or else I'm not doing a very good job of shouting 'mon the Brits!
Actually, now I come to think of it...
Giovanna Fletcher is one of those awesome people who is unashamedly herself and has an awesome social media game. She's married to Tom Fletcher from the band McFly and she writes nice contemporary romances (which I've enjoyed) as well as writing non-fiction books on motherhood.
She also writes YA books with her husband but I haven't read those.
Fford is one of those authors that I read everything she had to offer back in my late teens and early twenties with one complaint - the characters were "too old" (being in their late 20s-30s). Now, 15 years later, my perspective is very different, lol. I haven't read her books in a long time but I've recently acquired her newer ones so we'll see how it goes now "I'm older"...
Jaimie writes lovely uncomplicated romances that make me smile from start to finish.
Each is different but delivers a low drama HEA.
Carla's books are sweet and addictive! I've adored all I've read and can't wait to catch up with those I haven't. (I'm side-eyeing you, Stuck With You...)
And finally... I can't think of another one! So I give you lots!
