I just finished reading The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare and I loved the banter between Emma and Ash. They are hilarious together!

She almost made this list, so close. I love her banter!

Lisa Richards

Definitely checking out L H Cosway, Six of Hearts sounds right up my alley

Yay! Hope you enjoy it.


Good banter makes me so happy, I will absolutely check these out!

Right? I can’t help but smile when I read a good sexy banter book.


OOOOH, great topic, I love sexy banter. My absolute favorite author for sexy banter is Emma Chase, I’ve read all her books and loved each one, but Tangled stands out above the rest. My second favorite is Helena Hunting and her Pucked series. My third favorite is Christina Lauren. They outdid themselves with Dating You/Hating You, it was fabulous. I’m glad to see Elle Kennedy/Sarina Bowen made the list, the WAGs series is really, really good.

Tangled is so good at that too! And thanks for the recs.

Thanks Kathy! IAD is my fave as well.

Sophia Rose

I can be won over so quickly when an author employs the sexy banter and wit in stories. I’ve only read Cole and Bowen/Kennedy on your list, but I do hope to read Clayton and also Six of Hearts at some point.

Hope you enjoy them when you get to them!


What a great list!


What a great list!

Janie McGaugh

Of your listed authors, I’ve only read Kresley Cole, and I do love her books!

Kathleen Bylsma

I agree wholeheartedly with this list! Thanks!


I’ve only read kresley cole but l h cosway is on my tbr.

Catherine E.

I love Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen! I love hockey books and they write them together and individually.

Monique D

I wish you’d write those, I don’t have the patience to watch YouTube. I hope Lauren Blakely made the list, she’s awesome!

We’ll probably come up with a written top ten on this later on Monique. But the list was Alice Clayton, Penelope Ward/Vi Keeland (author duo), Sarina Bowen/Elle Kennedy (author duo), Kresley Cole and LH Cosway


I think you could have paired up LH Cosway with Penny Reid because Penny is awesome and writes with LH Cosway. Anne

DAMN!!! Missed opportunity! You are so right.


I don’t know if dirty talk and sexy banter are equivalent, but Damon Suede’s HOT HEAD can’t be equaled in that regard!

Laura Lovejoy-Brunk

Kresley’s books are amazing for everything, banter just being one element. Alice Clayton, Daryanda Jones, Tiffany Reisz, all have amazing banter also.

Chris Alexander

Shelly Laurenston, Sawyer Bennett, Julie James, and Lani Lynn Vale would be good additions.

Lover Of Romance

Six of Hearts is fantastic. And I love Kresley Cole!! Some other authors that do a good job are Jeaniene Frost, Lisa Kleypas, Sophie Jordan, Kerrelyn Sparks.

Sue G.

Alice Clayton was the author who popped into my mind first! I can remember laughing out loud so much reading her books! I would also add Christina Lauren and Sawyer Bennett! They both have some great sexy bantertoo!

Anita H.

Great list, now I have more books to add to my wish list!

Amy R

I love Alice Clayton, Sarina Bowen/Elle Kennedy and LH Cosway. I want to try the Vi Keeland/Penelope Ward books.

Texas Book Lover

I’ve read and totally agree with most of your recommendations. The one I haven’t is the LH Conway series. I’m checking that one out right away, it sounds awesome!!!
Thanks so much!


I love Alice Clayton’s writing! I didn’t read Nuts but I know Wallbanger was so so funny <3 !!!

Karen Markuson

I just stumbled across your site. I’m sure glad I did.

Karen Markuson

I will definitely be checking out the (author duo) of Penelope Ward/Vi Keeland.


Lauren Rowe. As Exhibit #1, I offer up ‘Ball Peen Hammer’. Don’t be fooled by the title. The book is a riot from Page 1.

Nancy Jones

Some of them are my favorite, however, I have found and few more to add.
