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.
