Outdoor Adventure Sport Romance

outdoor-adventure-ficI’ve always loved sports romances, but it was always hard for me to find sports romance/women’s fiction with the kinds of sports that I liked to do and follow as a fan: outdoor adventure sports (also called mountain sports or extreme sports). Basically any sort of sport that can get you out of city limits. Or into a park, anyway.

At some point when I was writing my own adventure sport novel (rock climbing), I started an outdoor adventure fiction shelf over at Goodreads. I’m starting a list here as well, so I can have more freedom with it and so it is accessible for folks who are not active on Goodreads.  This is a list that I hope will keep growing as new books are published and I stumble across more women’s fiction/romance adventure sport authors and titles.
