  • I highly recommend George RR Martin’s ‘A Song of Ice & Fire’ series. The first volume, ‘A Game of Thrones’ was published in ; so far, volumes have been published.

    Patrick Rothfuss’ excellent novel, ‘The Name of the Wind,’ came out in . It is the first of a trilogy; according to the author’s blog, the second book is completed and awaiting publication.

    I also highly recommend Neil Gaiman; his first solo novel, ‘Neverwhere,’ was published in . Some of his other novels since then have been ‘Stardust,’ ‘American Gods,’ ‘Anansi Boys,’ ‘Coraline’ and ‘The Graveyard Book.’ (I don’t recall there being much in the way of romance in ‘Coraline,’ but the rest do have some romantic themes.)

    Of course, if you’ve not read the ‘Harry Potter’ series or Phillip Pullman’s ‘His Dark Materials,’ both series began in the mid-to-late ”s.

  • The Green Rider series by Kristen Britain. The first book was published in the late ‘s and the series is still ongoing. There are currently three books out, in order: Green Rider, First Rider’s Call and The High King’s Tomb. There is romance, not as noticeable in the first book but it develops over the course of the series.

    Also if you can find them, The Last Dragonlord and Dragon and Phoenix by Joanne Bertin. Also published in the late ‘s, though unfortunately it’s been ten years since Dragon and Phoenix was released. I have heard that Bard’s Oath, the third book is in progress but no one really knows for sure. Either way, if you can find copies it’d be worth it. It’s rather heavier on the romance but there’s nothing explicit.
