Nicholas Sparks

Nicholas Sparks First things first, I don't think it would be possible to create a list of the greatest romance writers without recognizing the famous Nicholas Sparks for contributing to the emotion-packed genre. From inspirational classics such as "The Notebook," "The Last Song," and "Dear John" to his lesser known (but just as amazing) novels "The Rescue" and "At First Sight," Nicholas Sparks is a pro when it comes to penning heart-wrenching and relatable love stories. I definitely can't wait to read "The Longest Ride," his latest release. Although some may not consider him a romance fiction writer, the point is that his love stories captivate audiences everywhere for a reason.


Emily Giffin

Emily Giffin When I first read Emily Giffin's book "Something Borrowed," I have to admit that I was not sure whether I would enjoy the book due to its theme of love mixed with betrayal. However, taking a chance and branching out to more of her other works really opened my eyes. There's a reason why six of her novels have been named New York Times bestsellers!


Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts With over 200 romance novels under her belt, Nora Roberts is certainly an expert at writing intriguing love stories. There's something about Nora Roberts' writing style that always keeps me coming back for more. As the first author to be included in the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame, as well as being on the New York Times bestseller list for a long period, her extensive book list speaks for itself. If you've never read any of her works before, "Daring to Dream" is a great place to start.


Lori L. Otto

Lori L. Otto When reading "The Complete Emi Lost & Found Series" (comprised of the first three novels in the franchise, its prequel/follow up, as well as two short stories), it was incredibly difficult for me to put the books down. Filled with relatable characters and realistic situations, Lori L. Otto is a magnificent author whose work is emotional and life changing. Trust me when I say you will not want to put this one down.


Linda Lael Miller

Linda Lael Miller If you are ever looking for pure romance fiction, Linda Lael Miller is definitely your girl. As New York Times and USA Today's number one bestselling author, Miller is no stranger to stories about unconditional love, love at first sight, and other books of this nature.


Bella Andre

Bella Andre The fact that writer Bella Andre has been featured at the top of the New York Times, USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestselling author lists shows just how talented she truly is. I really like that she is able to add something new to conventional love stories.


William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare Lastly, I will never get tired of this playwright's flawless writing. Despite the fact that he isn't a romance fiction writer at all, Shakespeare's amazing works actually inspired me to read more stories in that genre. Just think about it for a second. Is there another writer who could mesmerize audiences with his powerful words?

If you are as obsessed with reading stories that will touch your heart, you can't go wrong with these brilliant writers. What other writers would you recommend?
