My Current Favorite Kindle Unlimited Romance Authors

Before I wrote my first rom com in 2018, I was writing YA contemporary fantasy, and I barely read any romances outside of the paranormal genre. A fellow author suggested I try writing contemporary romance, and I fell in love...and also became a reader and a fan of some great authors.


Here are some of my favorites, and the first book I'd read by each that made me want more...

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Love at First Book: Hate Notes

If I'm not hooked after the first few chapters, I usually put it down. There are just too many great books out there that I know will speak to me and Hate Notes was one of those gems for me. This author duo has not disappointed me yet, and why I always download their newest release on my KU list.

What Made Me a Fan: The surprise twist in Hate Notes I did not see coming and a beautiful epilogue

R.S. Grey

Love at First Book: Arrogant Devil

R.S. Grey is one of my go-to rom com authors. I love the slow burn, banter, and humor of her books. Just the right amount of steam for my taste and always an HEA. Arrogant Devil was a great introduction for me to get to know this fabulous author.

What Made Me a Fan: Her fun, witty style and humor without leaving out all those feels <3

Max Monroe

Love at First Book: My Brother's Billionaire Best Friend

An author duo I enjoy when in need of some light and fun romances. Max Monroe are the kind of people you'd want in your friend circle for a girl's night out. A fun newsletter and equally great books. These two are a hoot.

What Made Me a Fan: LOL moments and feel good stories

L.J. Shen

Love at First Book: Vicious

My first dark romance read...but not too dark that it made me uncomfortable. L.J. Shen just has a way with words and telling a story that has me reading well into the night. If you like romances with alpha bad boys, L.J. Shen is a must read author!

What Made Me a Fan: Beautiful prose, angst-omedy style, and great playlists

Ilsa Madden-Mills

Love at First Book: Not My Romeo

A relatively new-to-me author, I'm loving Ilsa Madden-Mills style...and I love when romances also bring in memorable side characters. I bought a pre-order of The Revenge Pact and look forward to diving into her latest book! Available now in Kindle Unlimited.

What Made Me a Fan: Memorable, quirky characters in a small town setting

Lucy Score

Love at First Book: Rock Bottom Girl

I loved this book and Lucy Score's style so much that I was up until the wee hours absorbed in the story. The only thing that stopped me from reading were eyelids that refused to stay open (and finishing the book the next day was at the top of my to-do list!) If the rest of her books are as entertaining as this one, then call me a fan for life.

What Made Me a Fan: Page-turning fun, feels, and great characters
