We know what themes we like when it comes to our books. Themes are the lifeblood of a good romance novel. There are the new trends and old favorites, but we all have our favorite tropes: go-tos when we want to be almost certain we’ll love the book. Sometimes they’re our triggers and push all of our buttons, sometimes we auto-read based on a few descriptive phrases, but we know them and we love them. Every Tuesday, this is the place to talk tropes.
"Say it isn’t so! This is a bittersweet review for me to write because MOONLIGHT ON NIGHTINGALE WAY is the final installment in Samantha Young’s beautiful, moving, and sexy as all get out On Dublin Street series..."
Hey, its Sara @HarlequinJunkie, stopping by to share with you some of our favorite reads from this past month including books by Kresley Cole, Kristin Hannah, Samantha Young and a few more not to be missed.
Oh, what a week it is. I know I say that a lot, but the next seven days really brings something for everyone. We have a novella from Megan Frampton (How much did you love THE DUKE’S GUIDE TO CORRECT BEHAVIOR?), a stunning new novel from the incredible Kristin Hannah (just read the first two lines and I dare you to put the book down), the latest by Samantha Young, THE RAVEN from Sylvain Reynard, and more.
Alexa Holland’s father was her hero—until her shocking discovery that she and her mother weren’t his only family. Ever since, Alexa has worked to turn her life in a different direction and forge her own identity outside of his terrible secrets,. But when she meets a man who’s as damaged by her father’s mistakes as she is, Alexa must help him. Caine Carraway wants nothing to do with Alexa’s efforts at redemption, but it’s not so easy to push her away. Determined to make her hate him, he brings her to the edge of her patience and waits for her to walk away. But his actions only draw them together and, despite the odds, they begin an intense and explosive affair. Only Caine knows he can never be the white knight that Alexa has always longed for. And when they’re on the precipice of danger, he finds he’ll do anything to protect either one of them from being hurt again...
