Dishing Up Romance

Welcome to SPL’s Romance Restaurant!  On our menu you’ll find many different flavors of romance: historical, contemporary, urban, inspirational, suspenseful, paranormal, and more.  For this month’s special, we’re serving up romance in three levels of spiciness.  Here’s a preview of our tasty offerings.

  Mild and Romantic
Whether sweet, inspirational, or humorous, these romances have one thing in common: they focus on love and relationships rather than sexuality. 

If you enjoy your romances mild, you may like the flavor of Betty Neels, Georgette Heyer, Barbara Cartland or Christian fiction author  Jacquelin Thomas.

 Sensual and Saucy
These stories may include some explicit sex and sensuality as the characters’ romance unfolds. 

Jayne Ann Krentz (who also writes historical romances as Amanda Quick and science fiction romances as Jayne Castle) may be to your taste.  For humor, try Jennifer Crusie or MaryJanice Davidson (who also writes paranormal romance.)  If you like your romance seasoned with cowboys and open skies, Diana Palmer  might appeal. 

  Hot and Spicy!
These scorching-hot stories are sure to keep away the cold on a chilly evening.   

Jaci Burton, Zane, Noire, Jacqueline Carey and Thea Devine are just some of the sizzlers on our menu.  Still craving more spice?  Check out our full list of erotic fiction.  And don’t forget about our selection of erotic graphic novels.

During January, you can come place your order at the 3rd floor display case at Central. 


Craving something you don’t see on display, or can’t make it to Central?  Your friendly neighborhood librarians at any branch are happy to be your servers.

  1. Wonderful genre summary! My housemate had to explain the multiple personalities of Jayne Anne Krentz to me a while back and later quizzed me on it, for fun. You’ve provided an excellent cheat sheet.
