Top Eleven Christian Romances of 2010

Today's list started out as a top ten list...really, it did.

But yesterday I finished a book called Driftwood Lane by Denise Hunter which was too good not to make the list. Problem is, all of my other choices are too good to take off the list.

So this Top Ten Tuesday, I'm going to shoe-horn one more title in here and call it my Top Eleven Christian Romance Reads of 2010 (and by 2010, I mean that's the year I read them, though some were published earlier). In no particular order, they are:

1. Lost in Nash Vegas by Rachel Hauck
2. Diva Nash Vegas by Rachel Hauck
3. Rodeo Redemption by Teri Wilson
4. Maid to Match by Deeanne Gist
5. Within My Heart by Tamera Alexander
6. Seaside Letters by Denise Hunter
7. A Hope Undaunted by Julie Lessman
8. Doctor in Petticoats by Mary Connealy
9. Sons of Thunder by Susan May Warren
10. Masquerade Marriage by Anne Greene
11. Driftwood Lane by Denise Hunter

(Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish).


  1. Thanks for the list Joy! I'm way behind, as I haven't ready any of these. I'm not familiar with Rachel's Nash Vegas series but I will keep 'an eye out' for them now.

    Have a great new year. It was so nice to meet you and I hope we can get together again soon.

  2. I'm a big Denise Hunter fan, too. And Julie Lessman. And Deeanne Gist.

  3. Oh, I should say, etc. etc because I like most of the other authors, too.

  4. @Debra, definitely get a hold of the Nash Vegas series, it was funny. I love funny.

    @Michelle, Denise Hunter was my favorite new discovery this year. :)

  5. JOY, YOU SWEETHEART, YOU!!! Thank you SOOO very much for the honor of being on your top 11 list -- I am THRILLED to be counted among the names you mentioned, many of whom are favorites of mine as well.

    And I actually have a Denise Hunter book in my TBR file that I have been chomping to read because I heard she is really good, so I will have to dig it out soon.

    Happy New Year, all!


  6. Happy New Year to you too Julie! I can't wait to read what happens next to the O'Connor family. :)

  7. Thanks Joy!! Happy New Year! I appreciate all you do to support authors!
