Clean Romance Books

I will not guarantee that there will not be kissing.  I think all good romance books need to have some good kissing scenes.  I just don't want to read anything beyond the kissing.

Books by Jane Austen
As far as I am concerned Pride and Prejudice should be required reading!
                     Emma
                     Sense and Sensibility
                     Persuasion
                     Mansfield Park
                     Northanger Abbey


Aisling of Eire  by Dorothy Keddington
I loved this book.  It is set in the United States and Ireland during the 1960's and 1980's.  A young woman meets a young man while she is studying in Ireland.  She comes home pregnant, and all contact stops.  She returns to Ireland as a grown woman.  As you can tell, I can no longer remember names.  I tried to find this book to purchase, but it is out of print.  The going rate was around $100 for a copy.  I hope it is re-released.  Best bet is to find it at the library. (I just found a used copy for $35.00 on Amazon)


Books by Marcia Lynn McClure
I have read a few books of Marcia's.  They are great.  Sometimes the writing is not polished, but she makes up for any faults by the fantastic story that she tells.  Here are a few titles that I have read of hers.  I have several more to go!  I have a link to her web page on the bottom of my home page.
               A Crimson Frost
               Saphyre Snow
               The Heavenly Surrender
               A Rogue Knight (available only in e book format)
               Weathered Too Young
               The Windswept Flame

                    The Captain of Her Heart

Books by Georgette Heyer
I was unaware of Georgette Heyer until recently.  She was first published in 1921.  Her style of writing reminds me of Jane Austin, but there is a stronger comedic element in her works.  I have only read a few, but I am interested in reading them all.
                   Spring Muslin
                   Devil's Club
