My childhood babysitter is 104 and lives in a nursing home. I send her a variety of large print books, but she prefers the romance books. And she likes them a little "frisky".. Being a 43 year old guy, my experience with romance novels is extremely limited. Any recommendations?

Phillip,

 

Historical or contemporary romance?

Victoria Dahl, Susan Donovan (the dog walkers series is good), Lori Wilde, Susan Mallery. Robyn Carr, Lori Foster (earlier ones) , Linda Lael Miller.

For older books, try Bertrice Small's first Skye O'Malley books, LaVyrle Spencer, earlie, Lori Copeland, Pamela Morsi's first few books were wonderful.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for these suggestions! P.s. I think she likes more of the historical versus modern ones.

I bet she'd love Victoria Dahl.  Her books are laugh out loud funny, have some great romance, and always have secondary characters that are older.

Pamela Clare's historicals are all very good, as well as Victoria Dahl's, Stephanie Lauren's Cynsters series is all pretty good. Tessa Dare's Spindle Cove series is awesome. These are all historical romances.

I love Lorretta Chase. Particularly funny is Lord of Scoundrels. Also Elizabeth Hoyt's series that includes The Leopard Prince is good.

I'm going to start using the term "frisky" because it is just so much cuter than "smutty romance".

Julie Garwood's historical romances would be great for your friend. Some of them are laugh-out-loud-funny! The Bride got me hooked on her historical romances. I laughed like a loon while reading it. You are very sweet to do this for your childhood friend. I hope she enjoys them.
