I saw this topic on another website and thought it would be fun here. These a few of mine:
MacKenzies Mountain by Linda Howard
Open Season by Linda Howard: the drug store scene and the colored condoms always make me laugh
Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard
Slow Heat in Heaven by Sandra Brown
One Summer by Karen Robards
Lucky's Lady by Tami Hoag
I know there are more but right now I can't come up with them.

Definitely true for me with MacKenzie's Pleasure-and the others as well. I think Nic is one of the funniest child-character's ever!
For me, I always read SEP's It Had to Be You-to start the football season.
And Mary Balogh's Christmas short stories usually get re-read-even with a stack of new Christmas stories on the shelf. Especially-The Wassail Bowl.
Patricia Veryan's Dedicated Villian and Practice to Deceive get read probably once a year.
And right now, I'm flipping thru Carla Kelly's Surgeon's Lady (sitting here by the 'puter) thinking, "gosh, I'm sooo glad she's writing Regencies again".
MacKenzie's Pleasure - Linda Howard (also like to skim through magic and game of chance and occasionally mountain - mission isn't my favorite though I'll skim through every so often
Midnight Jewels, Wildest Hearts, Silver Linings, Uneasy Alliance - Jayne Ann Krentz
Born in Ice, Born in Shame - Nora Roberts
Warrior, Outlaw - Elizabeth Lowell
Calista's Men - Jory Strong
Forbidden Pleasure - Lora Leigh
Midnight Man - Lisa Marie Rice (and I think the newest one might be a multi-read for me as well)
I think Virgin River will become a re-read also - probably the first 2 maybe 3 - once the series is 'done'
This is such a long list... It's not on my keeper shelf if it's not worth re-reading!
Barely Mistaken by Jennifer LaBrecque - This little book had the poor misfortune of being published under the redheaded stepchild Harlequin Temptation line. It contains some of the funniest, most flirtatious dialog I've ever read, one of the sexiest no-sex scenes (all he does it make her bed for her), and one of the most tender phone sex scenes.
Diana Palmer - I grab one of her titles any time I want more angst than action but don't want to mentally travel back in time for an historical.
Lora Leigh's Bound Hearts, Nauti, Breeds, and Tempting SEALs series
Madeline Hunter's Seducer and Rothwell series.
Mary Balogh's Bedwyns and Miss Martin's School for Girls in Bath series.
Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series.
Rachel Lee's Conard County series.
Of course, the downside of re-reading a book in a series... I just hafta re-read the whole series. *sigh*
Anything by Marsha Canham. I should know, I've read them all more than once:P Loretta Chase's Lord of Scoundrels too. And Flowers From the Storm by Laura Kinsale. What else? Ummm... Bridal Favors and The Bridal Season by Connie Brockway, anything by Sherry Thomas, and tons more I can't think of atm.
I have a long list, because I'm a huge re reader,l but off the top of my head:
Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase, especially, but pretty much all of her books
Dreaming of You and Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas
The first 4 books of Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series
Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling books
That Scandalous Evening by Christina Dodd
CL Wilson's Tairen Soul books
Morning Glory by Lavryle Spencer
Nobody's Angel by Karen Robards
One Perfect Rose by Mary Jo Putney
I don't really read books more than once, but I definitely feel like I'm missing a lot of must read books. I wish there was a really great way to know which books I have to read rather than trying to work my way through my ginormous TBR pile.
I'm taking all of your suggestions into consideration though :-)
Lord of Scoundrels - Loretta Chase (every May)
I'm trying to not keep as many books as in the past so a keeper these days has to be exceptionally good, but the ones on the Keeper Shelf right now have been grandfathered so I doubt I'll get rid of them. I'd love to reread more of them but with so many books TBR the guilties set in if I reread too many but I'm glad for the times I need a comfort read.
Is it the book or is it the comfort?
Scoundrel by Elizabeth Elliott
Billy Bob Walker Got Married by Lisa G Brown
Charming Grace, When Venus Fall, Sweet Hush, and A Place Called Home by Deborah Smith
Laid SF series by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller
and when I'm sick, Jayne Krentz/Amanda Quick/Jayne Castle. Nothing like a light book with humor to fend off a cold or flu.
I have to agree with Virgin River Series I have already read them several times.
I just did a reread of Lord of Scoundrels a couple weeks ago.
I like rereading Julie Garwood's Ransom, Megan Hart's Dirty , Stranger, and Broken(although Broken needs a certain mood to reread).
I've reread J. R. Ward's Black Dagger books at least once.
Spencer's Morning Glory and the Endearment .
I am sure there are others I am blanking on though...
Good idea! Here are mine:
Knight in Shining Armor, Wishes - Jude Deveraux
The entire Conard County series - Rachel Lee (especially Miss Emmaline & the Archangel)
Morning Glory & Family Blessings - Lavyrle Spencer
The Montana Creeds series - Linda Lael Miller
Courting Miss Hattie - Pamela Morsi
The Visitation series - Lori Foster
Valentines' Knight - Renee Roszel
Betsy in Michigan
Years, Morning Glory, The Endearment , The Fullfillment : all by LaVyrle Spencer
Cherish- Catherine Anderson
Heaven in Texas- Curtiss Ann Matlock
Shelter Mountain-Robyn Carr
Last Chance Cafe-Linda Lael Miller
Message in Bottle, The Notebook- Nicholas Sparks
The Horse Whisperer-Nicholas Evans
Montana Sky-Nora Roberts
Morning Comes Softly- Debbie Macomber
Beyond All Reason-Judith Duncan
Some very nice choices... and some good new reads on this thread for me!
I very rarely re-read... I hate already knowing what happens... (and I have to keep my self from flipping to the back when I start a book- I'm terrible like that!)
These are the few books that I have read more than once...
Linda Howard: Mackenzie series, Open Season, Mr. Perfect, White Lies, and several more of hers
Rachel Lee: Conard County series
Debbie Macomber: Same Time, Next Year, Hasty Wedding, Morning Comes Softly, Montana
Diana Palmer: Carrera's Bride and several more
Janet Dailey: Ride The Thunder, Touch The Wind, Nightway

Great thread: picked up some new TBR authors/books. My rereads: Georgette Heyer: these old shades, devil's cub (actually a lot of hers); LindaLael Miller: the McKettrick series, especially the historical ones, Jodie Thomas : almost all of hers. More Than Words : Elizabeth Glenn (harlequin).
I'll go back to Debbie Macomber as well: depends what mood I'm in. I like her blossom st series.
What a great topic! I am saving all your lists to use as books to order. I have such a long TBR list, that I don't often read the same book twice. Here are some of my favorites:
Beauty - Robin McKinley
Lord Harry's Folly - early Catherine Coulter
The unexpected Mrs. Pollifax - Dorothy Gilman
Crocodile on the sandbank - Elizabeth Peters
The Masqueraders - Georgette Heyer
