Keeping Up with the Reading Stack

Amazon just released a list of the best romance books published so far this year, according to their editors.  I am kind of appalled at myself that I've only read one of them -- Laura Kaye's Hard as You Can, the second book in a great new romantic suspense series.  I have a couple of the others in my pile of books to read and I am fan of many authors on the list, but I don't guess that counts in my favor.

What about you?  Have you read any on this list?  Do you think they're the best romance books so far this year?
