The Special Title Listings

Updated April 26, 2013

Welcome to the the Special Title Listings. These lists are organized differently than by genre, setting, or grade alone. After reading romance for some time, some readers can be drawn to certain themes (Favorite Funnies) or issues (May/December Romance), character types (Beta Heroes) or unusual settings (Special Settings, Road Romance). With this in mind, the Special Title Listings page was created to meet such a reader's need.

AAR also wanted the list to present the best of the best in these categories so if the title has been reviewed by AAR then it had to have a grade of B- or greater. For books not reviewed by AAR, they are researched to see they have been well reviewed (equivalent to a B- grade or greater at AAR) at other venues. All publication dates are eligible for inclusion, but the ones from earlier years should hold up just as well when reading them today. These lists have been invaluable for those readers who know what they are looking for and for those who aren't sure but who have an idea that a book with characters who have been imprisoned might be just the ticket.

We hope you enjoy your journey into our lists. They are perfect to print out for your next bookstore excursion. To learn more about list definitions, as well as their history and design, please click here.
