Once again I tried, but failed, to reduce my favorites list to ten.  Many of my perennial favorite authors are on the list, as well as a few new additions.  Hence, here are my top twelve books of 2015, plus one novella I loved too much to leave out.  (The link to the title at Amazon follows the Amazon logo by each title, and my review links are listed after each blurb.)

After a long absence from historical romance, Lisa Kleypas came back with a lovely story about a love ‘em and leave ‘em womanizer, who finally succumbs to love and makes one of the most romantic and touching declarations I’ve read.  http://freshfiction.com/review.php?id=56996
