10 Most Popular & Best Romance Writers of All Time

Well, the first batch of reader favorites is in, and it demonstrates one thing clearly: that most readers are as determined to get as many books on their top ten lists as they can manage.

“Hence, the list of romantic authors is endless. While some have produced dozens of novels, others have gained popularity from just one of their masterpiece. More contemporary writers have been included deliberately in the lists (most from book lovers choice) as the present generation will be more acquainted with them.”

Jude Deveraux (born September 20, 1947 in Fairdale, Kentucky as Jude Gilliam) is an American Romance novel author who is well-known for her historical romances. As of 2010, 36 of her novels had been on The New York Times Best Seller list according to Forbes, including among the dozens such titles as 2009’s Lavender Morning and Days of Gold. Deveraux, who was described as “a popular romance author” by the New York Times in 2009, appeared as herself in the 1987 romance novelist documentary Where the Heart Roams. In 2009, she was one of four authors who produced works for the debut of Vook, a company which produces “video books” by combining text, video and internet links into a single experience.

Known for her historical romances with storylines centered on strong, capable heroines, Deveraux has written stories set in later time periods, including post-Revolutionary America, nineteenth century Colorado, and nineteenth century New Mexico. She has written several time-travel romances, and her latest novels have had a contemporary setting. Many of her more recent books feature paranormal storylines.
