Final Thoughts

Susan Mallery writes books that fuel the passion in her readers’ hearts and fill their minds with romance.

Finding another author that does the same is not going to be easy, however, out of all the authors we have considered we have to say Erin Nicholas is probably the best bet for Susan Mallery readers.

Aside from Erin Nicholas and Maggie McGinnis, consider trying out the works of Tracy March as well, however, with Tracy March you may find yourself a bit too enveloped in her real-world romance.

Themes of long-lost love and rekindling flames are the true mood of Susan Mallery’s works, and of similar authors.

However, with so many books, we suggest making sure you have binged through all of Susan Mallery’s books and then start looking at Erin Nicholas.
