Best Romance Novel: The Taming of a Scottish Princess


Are you looking for a great romance novel to read? This blog, in association with the website Best Romance Novels Today, is dedicated to posting the best romance novels we can find anywhere on the internet.

We search to find top romance novels by researching respected, independent review sites, and we combine that with research at Amazon, also. We consider books from large publishers, and also gems from the small presses. Each book posted has earned a five star review from a respected reviewer. In addition, we check that novel's average star ranking on Amazon. If a book earns 5 stars from both sources (or averages 4 1/2 stars with at least 15+ reviews on Amazon), we post it here. Enjoy!
