I found The Clan of The Cave Bear very hard to read, it was to repetitive and every leaf and blade of grass was described in great detail lol.

Um... Well there is an "adult" version of Sleeping Beauty by Annie Rice under the name A. N. Roquelaure... They are quite, um, naughty/BDSM.

Classic novels are free on Amazon, or were when I got a bunch... Such as

The Three Musketeers, Treasure Island, The Swiss Family Robinson, The Scarlet Letter, The Phantom of the Opera, White Fang, Vanity Fair, Northanger Abbey, Beauty and the Beast, Pride and Prejudice, The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, The Legends of King Arthur, The Jungle Book, Jane Eyre, Charming the Shrew.

I have them all in their own section, and try to only read them if I am really stuck for a book.

Some other books I forgot to mention earlier:

The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison
The Virgin Cure by Ami Mckay
The Birth House by Ami Mckay
The Girl in the Gatehouse by Julie Klassen
Sun Going Down by Jack Todd
The Hearts of Horses by Molly Gloss
Gypsy by Lesley Pearse
If Wishes Were Horses by Robert Barclay
The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks
Black Hills by Nora Roberts

There is a series I enjoy, but it doesn't come in an e-reader version, unfortunately, but it is the "Wagons West!" series by Dana Fuller Ross, about the first wagon train that goes across the states.

Not sure how you feel about biographies, but two that I have read before that I was pretty impressed by were:

A Table in the Presence by LT Carey H. Cash (Written by a military chaplain attached to the first marine battalion that crossed into Iraq. It does have religious aspects in it.)

Stolen Innocence by Lisa Pulitzer and Elissa Wall (Mormon girl, who had to marry her cousin as a teenager, and her coming to terms with the fact she has to leave/escape.)

I'll second the classic novels. Anything by Jack London is good (White Fang or Call Of The Wild) as is by Nicholas Sparks.

Nicholas Evans (The Horse Whisperer, which I read before seeing the movie) has written some other stuff. Some of it is very good too.
Some of Jodi Picoult's books are thought provoking and good.

Have been trying to find:
If Wishes Were Horses by Robert Barclay...
Is it worth buying? My library doesn't have it.

I think I've read all the Jack Londons twice at least... I've read Jim Kjelgaard, and alot of Nicholas Sparks, even Nicholas Evans...

I don't like erotic type romance, don't mind sex but not that crazy stuff! LOL... I didn't think about searching free books (I have a nook so I shop barnes and noble).

That If Wishes Were Horses by Robert Barclay looks really good. THinking about purchasing that one.
