Best Romance — Goodreads Choice AwardsSkip navigation! One summer, I walked by a row of women in chaise lounges all reading the same book: Fifty Shades of Grey by E.

2017 Rules & Eligibility
From a sexy, dance-inspired debut to a fresh take on the green card romance to the launch of several crackling new series, the romance world had lots of steamy gifts to unwrap this year. It was also the year that romance joined the resistance. Authors such as Tessa Dare and Sarah MacLean used their writing to define modern happy endings, even in historical stories, with tales of protagonists who nevertheless persisted to find fulfillment with their best selves and those deserving of their love. Daria made a sparkling debut with the first novel in her Dance Off series, which uses a fictionalized version of Dancing With the Stars as the backdrop for romance. The book crackles with their chemistry, and Daria nails the behind-the-scenes drama of the dance and reality TV worlds.
What was it about that made us hungry for happy endings?

Indecent Exposure by Tessa Bailey Prior to picking up this book, I had heard from multiple people that Tessa Bailey was a master of dirty talk. But let me just say, I was not prepared. The sex scenes in this book are impossibly hot. His Sinful Touch by Candace Camp There are historicals that insist on accuracy, and then there are historicals that jump headfirst into delicious soapy twists and wildly entertaining scenarios that are just this side of realistic. Tempest by Beverly Jenkins It could be tempting to take Beverly Jenkins for granted—the Slayer of Words has been releasing fantastic books for over two decades—but books like Tempest make it impossible to do so.
