Summer Favorites: Romance

For many, the approach of Labor Day (or as some parents put it, "Independence Day") signals the end of summer.  The end of August is bittersweet; on one hand, it's sad to start packing away the beach gear, but on the other, the start of the school year means that some of you will soon have a lot more free time to read.  With that in mind, I thought I'd wrap up the summer by sharing my own favorite romance reads from the past few months.

I've encountered more than the usual number of spectacular titles this summer.  My personal tastes in romance lean towards historicals (mainly regencies) and the occasional urban fantasy, but I've been pushing myself this year to read out of my comfort zone and try a wider variety of romance's subgenres.  Regencies are still my favorites, but my wider reading has definitely unearthed a few gems that will keep me reading outside my usual categories.  (I have yet to warm to western romance, but if anyone has recommendations, I'd be happy to hear them.)
