The books in the book lists below contain romance, life-threatening suspense, and a puzzle or mystery. This is our definition of a "gothic romance novel."

Click on a linked title to learn more about it and/or order it from Amazon.com. For every purchase you make through these links to the Amazon.com website, Gothic Journal receives a small commission. If you buy the books directly from Amazon.com (not through our website or our Amazon webstore), Amazon gets to keep the commission. You support our efforts on behalf of the books and authors in our genres when you access Amazon.com via this website to make any purchase.

Note: The changing nature of book publishing and the wide variety of formats emerging have precipitated the re-release of many older titles in new formats. Therefore, in November 2009 we discontinued† listing upcoming titles by month on this website. Instead, we have continued to recommend and comment upon upcoming titles via the home page on Gothic Journalís Amazon.com bookstore. So please visit it via the link at left for our latest recommendations.
