Best Contemporary Romance in 2022

Contemporary Romance

When it comes to romance novels, contemporary romance is one of the largest sub-genres. Its main characteristic is that the stories are set contemporaneously with the period of time they depict. These novels usually reflect the values and mores of the time in which they are written. There are many different types of contemporary romance, and the following article will explain some of the main types of stories. Listed below are some of the most popular types of contemporary romance novels.

Lesbian romance subgenre

One of the most popular subgenres in contemporary romance is lesbian romantic fiction. Lesbian romance novels are often full of white characters, but the main characters are usually women of color. In one lesbian romance novel, college students Alexis and Trisha fall in love with each other. Although they each have demanding lives--Alexis is a stripper, while Trisha is committed to her mental health--they find time for each other. The romance is boundless and the sex is realistic.

Before, publishers assumed that readers who wanted to read about gay relationships would also be gay. This has changed, however, as publishers are looking for other readers. Alyssa Cole, for example, wrote a contemporary romance novel about two women. The subgenre is now known as F/F, or female-female romance. As a result, lesbian romance novels are gaining popularity.

In addition to the literary magazines, there are numerous websites dedicated to lesbian and bisexual romances. Many of these sites have forums and blogs for readers to connect with authors. Some chapters also have an executive board, with a president, vice president, and secretary. The board also has research, education, and events committees, and promotes its members' books.

Blue-collar welder

This contemporary romance is based on the idea that opposites attract. It tells the story of a blue-collar welder and a white-collar boss. Although the two are in love, they cannot pursue the relationship while they're working because the welder must give his boss two weeks' notice to quit his job. Instead, the two pursue their relationship outside of work, which can cause them both to lose their jobs.

White-collar boss

Dating your boss is taboo today, but it wasn't always so. In the late 19th century, women in the workplace were considered fair game, and they either welcomed or rejected attention from their employers. There was also no such law as workplace sexual harassment. Today, however, this practice is considered taboo and it's a shame that it's no longer the case. In this Contemporary Romance, a blue-collar welder falls head over heels for a white-collar boss.


The Christian romance genre has grown tremendously in the past few decades, and has a few key differences from secular romance. In contrast to secular romance, Christian novels incorporate Christian beliefs into the plot, family structure, and hero, but they generally feature different heroes and a focus on faith. Some contemporary Christian romances are not for everyone. In addition to the differences in plot and gender roles, the Christian romance genre also features less violence and a more wholesome message.

The Christian publishing industry began exploding in the 1970s, primarily in response to the progressive social change movements of the day. In fact, at that time, only 4% of pulp fiction was Christian, and was largely in the hands of small houses. This changed in the 1990s, when Christian pulp fiction saw a resurgence. In fact, Harlequin Publishing House published the first inspirational novel in the genre in 1997.

In a book about a woman who had an affair with a pastor, the main character is a young woman who had a difficult time coping with her own life. This woman was raised to be a Christian, and she vowed never to fall in love with an athlete. But she ended up in love with her brother's hockey-playing best friend, and now, she is unable to live a life free of regrets.


Although lesbian literature dates back as far as the 1950s, it wasn't until the 1970s that lesbian romance became a mainstream genre. The foundational texts of the genre were written at that time, but since then, lesbian literature has become much more varied. It's not just lesbian women who are attracted to lesbian men and vice versa, either. Lesbians of all genders, including lesbian couples, are now represented in many of the bestselling lesbian contemporary romance novels.

In The Help, a novel based on the Victorian period, two women of color meet in a novel that explores the complexities of their relationship. In The Help, college students Alexis and Trisha are attracted to each other despite their busy schedules. Trisha has a busy stripper job, while Alexis is devoted to her mental health. Despite their busy lives, the two women manage to make time for love and romance. Although a love triangle is inevitable, Lesbian Contemporary Romance is far from a boring read.

Another lesbian contemporary romance novel, Fingersmith, is an intriguing read. The title of this novel reflects its dual roles as a lesbian contemporary romance. The title itself is a parody of a classic lesbian romance. A lesbian romance novel will have you reading several pages before you can make up your mind on the story. It's easy to picture how it would feel to live with one woman who is a lesbian.


Romantic suspense can take many forms. It can be plot-specific, setting-specific, or both. The type of hero and heroine may play an important role in determining the level of suspense.

Romantic suspense can also be centered around characters who struggle to overcome their emotional scars. Instead of a villain, the characters have to deal with the consequences of past abuse. Authors like Megan Hart and Sylvia Day tackle this subject in their novels. In addition to these popular series, inspirational romance authors such as Francine Rivers have been writing books that explore emotional scars. Suspense in contemporary romance is a common theme for bestselling authors.

In recent years, romance has shifted away from the 'classic' romantic genre and into more modern ones. While some genres have been influenced by suspense, contemporary romance still maintains its purity.
