Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday they post a new Top Ten list prompt. This week it’s a Valentine’s Day freebie! I’m not much of a romance reader, but i don’t mind a romantic sub-plot, so here’s my list of Top Ten Romantic Suspense novels for Valentine’s Day.
10. The Black Opal by Victoria Holt
Like it says on the cover – the Queen of Romantic Suspense!
9. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
This one is still one my TBR pile, but seems to fit the category so well I had to include it even without having read it!
8. Nine Coaches Waiting by Mary Stewart
A gothic romance classic.
7. Dawn by V.C. Andrews
Expect things to be a little twisted coming from V.C. Andrews – but I liked this one.
6. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
A little of everything – vampires and witches, historical fiction, paranormal, romance…
5. Naked in Death by J. D .Robb
The first Eve Dallas novel – Eve is a NY police detective in this police procedural / thriller series set in the near future. This series is perfect if you like your romance on the steamy side.
1. The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley
The perfect gothic-style suspense with a touch of the paranormal. I love this cover, love the story, and love Susanna Kearsley!
