If you’ve read any of our romance novel reviews, you know that if there’s one thing we hate here at Romance Rehab, it’s weak, spineless heroines. (And also country music, camping, big hairy spiders and reality TV, but we digress...) But fortunately, for every too-stupid-to-live heroine we’ve encountered on our reading adventures, we’ve found at least one outstanding, super-smart, bad-ass woman—the kind of woman who can overcome any obstacle and generally grabs life by the balls and makes it her bitch. The kind of woman who kicks the crap out of the romance stigma. So, without further ado, here are our top 12 favorite bad-ass heroines:
Any avid romance reader can tell you that the road to happily ever isn’t always smooth. Sometimes, it’s years and years in the making. But that certainly doesn’t make the journey any less exciting! For all you readers out there who, like us, can’t get enough second-chance romance reads, here are our picks for the best-of-the-best:
Not your grandma’s historical romance

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: few things in life are sexier than a hot guy who has his shit together. And a hot guy who has his shit together AND is a good parent? Well, that’s the romance Holy Grail. With that in mind, here are our top picks for the hottest single dad heroes you’ll ever find in Romance Land (Seriously, hang onto your ovaries, ladies), listed in no particular order:
Covers that kick the crap out of the romance stigma (And the books beneath them are pretty freakin’ awesome, too.)
One of the things that critics of the romance genre love to sneer at are book covers that feature a classic couples-in-a-sexy-clinch photo, or hot, half-naked dudes (often headless) with eight-pack abs. Now personally, we don’t mind a clinch photo, and we LOVE hot, half-naked ab dudes. (Abs. I mean, what’s not to love,right? Heck, we even devoted an entire list not too long ago to our favorite hot cover dudes.) But we also appreciate the hell out of authors who crush the romance stigma not only in their books, but also with their unconventional, beautiful, and arty covers. So, without further ado, in no particular order, here are our favorite books that crush the romance stigma from cover to cover:

Hot new releases from some of your favorite authors including: Kristen Ashley, Christina Lauren, Emma Scott, Sarah Dessen, Karen Kingsbury, K.A. Tucker and Roisin Meaney.
Does anyone else miss the hell out of Sons of Anarchy? I mean, sure we can see the sexy-as-all-hell Charlie Hunnam playing King Arthur these days, but it’s somehow just not the same as seeing him on that bike, playing everyone’s favorite MC president, Jax Teller. So, in honor of Jax Teller (may he rest in peace), here are our picks for the top 10 sexiest bikers in romance today:
Colleges in the world of new adult romance are populated with crazy-hot, smart, funny, fantabulous guys. My real-life college? Not so much. But if I had been fortunate enough to attend a college like the ones portrayed in romance novels, here's my list of the top 10 guys I wish I'd gone to school with:
Romance readers are complicated. Sometimes they want a light, funny, easy read, and other times they want anything BUT a light, funny, easy read. So, for all you complicated readers out there who happen to be in the mood for a little angst (or a lot of angst, as the case may be), here are our picks for the top 11 angsty contemporary and new adult romances:
The wolf shifter category is one of the most popular in the entire paranormal romance genre. Why you ask? Maybe it's because wolf shifters in romance today aren't like the brutal, uncomplicated monster werewolves we saw so often in old movies. Maybe romance readers are just drawn to the wild, raw, primal power of a rough-around-the-edges bad boy who just so happens to shift into the form of one of nature's most lethal predators every so often. Or maybe it's all because of that shirtless kid from the Twilight movies. Who knows? But more importantly...why question it? The simple fact is that romance readers love wolf shifters, and here at Romance Rehab, we're certainly not immune to their, um, animal magnetism. With that in mind, here are our top 11 all-time favorite wolf shifters in romance today, listed in no particular order.
I think everyone knows that here at Romance Rehab, we're big fans of The Walking Dead. I mean, we even came up with our very own zombie apocalypse dream team list. But we also love romance novels. So, it stands to reason that we'd be up on all the best reads for lovers of romance and the zombie apocalypse, right? Lucky for all you likeminded readers out there, we DO happen to have some awesome reading suggestions. Here are our picks for the best reads that blend romance and the zombie apocalypse:
(Note: a couple of the reads on this list are rather...spicy. Please read the author's warnings carefully so that you don't get any unwanted...surprises.)
Here at Romance Rehab, we love indie authors. Why, you ask? Because indie authors aren't at the mercy of a publishing house and a schedule that limits the number of books released in a year. As a result, indie authors release books A LOT faster than traditionally published authors. Let's face it: if we had to wait on all the traditionally published authors out there to release a book, we'd run out of new stuff to read in a week. Or worse yet, we could DIE before the next book in a favorite series is released. (I'm looking at you, Justin Cronin) To celebrate our love of indie authors and all things vampire-y and shifter-y, here are our favorite paranormal romance indie authors, listed in no particular order:
(Note: The books listed below are all book 1 in a series. You’re welcome.)
