Fantasy books with a heavy emphasis on the romantic plot. This are (usually) more than purely a bodice-ripper romance and contain a detailed setting, deep plot, and so on. Think of them as fantasy books with a strong romantic element, stronger than the run-of-the-mill fantasy. There is a difference between romantic fantasy and fantastic romance; the difference being that fantastic romance tend to usually feature a paranormal plot setting (vampires, werewolves, etc) and the primary motivation of a fantastic romance is to facilitate the romantic entanglement between the hero and heroine. Romantic fantasy may include fantastic romance elements but usually there are other trappings beside only the romantic element (world building, plausible plot, fantasy setting, detailed magic system, etc).

Outlander

by Diana Gabaldon

5 avg rating
Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one century, and a lover in another...

In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon--when she innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an "outlander"—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire's destiny in soon inextricably intertwined with Clan MacKenzie and the forbidden Castle Leoch. She is catapulted without warning into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life ...and shatter her heart. For here, James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Black Magician Trilogy

by Trudi Canavan

"You want to know the truth."

Sonea has learned much since she was but a penniless urchin possessing an awesome untapped ability. She has earned the grudging respect of her fellow novices and a place in the Magicians' Guild. But there is much she wishes she had never learned—what she witnessed, for example, in the underground chamber of the mysterious High Lord Akkarin . . . and the knowledge that the Guild is being observed closely by an ancient fearsome enemy.

Still, she dares not ignore the terrifying truths the High Lord would share with her, even though she fears it may be base trickery, a scheme to use her astonishing powers to accomplish his dark aims. For Sonea knows her future is in his hands—and that only in the shadows will she achieve true greatness . . . if she survives.
