We are temporary creatures, and we know it--that's why we fear the dark, after all, that's why we build walls and light candles to keep it out.

I'll try to offer one. :D

Any deal breakers (examples: nothing explicit/no love triangles/etc.)?

And anything you'd prefer? Maybe some examples of what you've enjoyed?

I've been in the mood for something cheesy. There aren't really any deal breakers. I'm just trying to find a new book. Thanks for the help.

(Just f.y.i. I'm providing choices because romance isn't a big genre for me. :lol: )


This is a little bit out there, but give Where the Heart is by Billie Letts a look.
(If you haven't seen the adaptation...)
Pregnant girl gets dumped by her boyfriend and has to live in a Walmart. This basically gives you a good idea of the author's style and sense of humor.

Also, I recently started A. G. Howard's Haunted Hearts series. Historical romance with some paranormal elements. The first book is The Architect of Song. It was fun and interesting.

Umm...a little off book. Not technically romance (technically Urban Fantasy), but it sort of fits...
Seanan McGuire's InCryptid series. Not heavy romance, but it is always a part of the story.

Try Nalini Singh. I love her writing (mainly her paranormal).

The Nine Lives of Christmas by Sheila Roberts
I haven't read it yet, but I'm planning to (when I can find it). I have seen the adaptation and it definitely counts as cheesy. :lol:


I hope something here appeals to you! :tiphat:
