Have you read the Lemony Snickett books, the "Series of Unfortunate Events"? They are written for kids but are kind of on the dark adult side. Try the first three in the series and see what you think :)

The Horse Whisperer was written by Nicholas *Evans*, who also wrote The Smoke Jumper, The Loop, The Brave and The Divide. He writes beautifully, but IMO, has trouble resolving his plots.

Nicholas *Sparks* writes sappy popular romances such as Dear John, Nights in Rodanthe, The Notebook, The Vow and A Walk to Remember.

I am not a fan, but do understand that he is wildly popular.

Check out the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. Amazing story about time travel, romance, war, 18th century Scotland, etc. - slightly sexy, but mostly it's hot because Jamie is pretty much the sexiest literary character there is and you can't help but get into it.

All I can say is...TRUST ME!!!!!!

I second the Outlander series! It sounds a little bizarre whenever I try to describe the storyline to anyone but everyone who has started to read is now hooked! Also, they are quite long and there are SIX installments so you don't have to worry about zipping through them too fast (although they're so good that you just might!). I'm on the third one. :)

Oopsie! OK. I have not read any Sparks then but I do like the walk to remember movie. I have read most of the books by Evans listed above. It's hard to describe that I hate him and love him at the same time.

I'm open to try some of these "strange" series. I'm going to have to go shopping for Nook books today.

YES! Would definitely be worth your time! These are my favorites and I wait very, very impatiently for the next one to come out.

Fp,

My favorite romances are the ones by Kathleen Woodiwiss, I've reread a couple. Well written, great historical research, just good guilty-pleasure kind of fun -

Amazon.com: kathleen woodiwiss books: Books

Also, Celeste de Blasis's Wild Swan triology.

Similiar to Kathleen Woodiwiss, but with horses!

Lead a Horse to Murder wasn't the best written book, but a fun read. A mystery with a bit of romance thrown in. Plus, polo!

Perhaps you'd like Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult.
