In November, I started a Best Romance Crack Quest and asked for people’s input on their favorite crack reads. It became clear to me fairly quickly that this quest would not work so well. People’s definition of crack reads varied wildly (which really wasn’t all that surprising) with no good common thread with which I could work. I do still have everyone’s suggestions and will put them all in a post, but I think I’ve decided to change the Best Romance Crack Quest into a regular feature in order to highlight the books I’ve read that seem cracky to me.
So, to me, romance crack is a label for books that make me think WTF? or “I did not just read that." They contain over-the-top characters or situations. Maybe they take overused tropes and push them in weird directions or even combined such tropes (amnesia secret babies, anyone?). Maybe they are funny. Sometimes, they are books that I don’t know why I like, but can’t stop reading.

“One Good Earl Deserves a Lover” is a Romance Novel News Recommended Reads. Check out our review.
One Good Earl Deserves a Lover is dedicated “for girls who wear glasses” – perhaps because New York Times bestselling author Sarah Maclean uses this sublime new Regency romance to showcase a bespectacled heroine with a wealth of intellect. Lady Philippa Marbury cares more for books than balls, for science than the Season, for laboratories than love. She has a passion for roses, and loves nothing more than spending hours in her orangery, grafting stems together hoping to create a new hybrid bloom….that is, until she throws herself into a new experiment. Her brilliant mind is afire as she experiments with ways to convince Cross, the clever, controlling partner in London’s most exclusive gaming hell, to teach her some seductive new lessons about the birds and the bees….
