really good CHRISTIAN romance novels?

Ok im 13. I really like reading, especially romance. But i only like to read CLEAN CHRISTIAN romances. I really dont want any sex, cursing, and alcohol in my books. I can read about 5 300 to 400 page novels in a week if i have time. I really just dont want to read anything shorter than maybe 370 pages. I was really interested in Erynn Mangum, but i have read most of her books, and they were really short. I kind of like karen kingsbury, but her books depress me. Not because i dont like tear-jerkers, but her books always end in death. One last thing, i really like historical books, but i also like modern ones alot too. So any suggestions that would meet up to my reading expectations??

    Karen Kingsbury is an excellent one & most of hers don't end in death. Beverly Lewis writes mainly about the Amish. If you also like suspense, there's Irene Hannon. Brock & Bodie Thoene have written many series, some historical.

    I found another list that others have compiled on GoodReads.com. I haven't read many of these, so I can't speak to the quality.

    1. Denise Hunter Contemporary

    2. Mary Connealy Western

    3. M.L. Tyndall Historical(High Seas)

    4. Marta Perry Amish Fiction, Contemporary, Historical

    5. Kelly Long Amish Fiction

    6.Jillian Hart contemporary and histroical

    7.Janet Tronstad Contemporary and Historical

    8.Carla Capshaw historical

    9.Kaye Dacus Contemporary

    10.Julie Lessman Historical

    11. Cheryl WyattContemporary (military)

    12.Gilbert MorrisHistorical

    13.Kelly Eileen HakeWestern/Prairie

    14.Siri Mitchell Historical

    15. Tracie Peterson Historical(Alaska)

    Redeeming Love - Rivers

    Love Comes Softly - Oke

    Anne of Green Gables - Montgomery

    If you like fantasy too Chronicles of Narnia by Lewis and Treasures of Darkness Treasures of Light by Allen are really good and have some adventure/symbolism/ romance - these books may not be specifically Christian but are clean and in the page range

    Anything published by Bethany House Publishing or Abingdon Press is generally a safe bet

    The Strieker Saga by Robin Hardy is good, it's an older series, but I loved it

    Lori Wick is one of my favorite authors, I love her books

    The Princess

    Sofie's Choice

    White Chocolate Moments

    I also loved Deeanne Gist

    Courting Trouble (learned some lessons from this one...)

    Deep in the Heart of Trouble

    Beverly Lewis is good too, my sister really likes her books

    Janette Oke is a great writer too, lots ot romance, but not totally sappy

    Just one warning, as a single 23 year old woman to a 13 year old girl just starting out. Be careful the picture you build in your mind from the romance books. Clean as they are, they are still romances. Don't create such a beautiful picture of a "perfect, romantic" man in your mind that no man can possibly measure up. I love reading romances, but sometimes, I've found that they start leading me into a state of discontent. God may not be calling to you get married right after college, he may not even be calling you to have a boyfriend in high school. Can you read these books and still be content with that? It's not easy, and sometimes romance books make it worse.

    Along with these romances, I also have to recommend Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot.

    Karen Kingsbury's books are amazing. Definitely read Even Now and Ever After by her.They are some of the best books ever written. Robin Jones Gunn is also good

    While you read a publication you start to see the story how you want to imagine it not what sort of director wants anyone to see it
