In celebration of this holiday of love, I decided to share my favorite romances. These books of love are perfect for an evening in eating the candy harvested from the hearts you conquered on this lovely celebration.
Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Cruise and Bob Mayer
Caterer Agnes Crandall is busy trying to put on a wedding for the family of a mob boss when hitman Shane rescues her from danger. But Shane has his own problems with rivals trying to kill him and annoying family bothering him. This book is hilarious and suspenseful, read it!
Scent of Darkness by Christina Dodd
Ann Smith has always been in love with her handsome boss, but she suddenly realizes he’s not what he seems. Jasha Wilder is cursed from a pact with the devil and is desperateto save his soul. This is an action-packed paranormal must read! It’s the first book in the Darkness Chosen series and each one just gets better and better.
Lord of the Fading Lands by C.L. Wilson
When Fey King Rain Tairen Soul discovers that the evil race of Elden mages might be regaining power, he immediately sets off to the human kingdom of Celiera. What he finds there though is Ellysetta, his “truemate.” The first book in this epic fantasy series is amazing. It’s filled with action, adventure and magic. The characters are vibrant and the plot just grows as the series continues.
Rebellion by Nora Roberts
In 1745 Scotland, Serena MacGregor has to contend with her brother’s new friend Brigham Langston, an Englishman who is searching for alliances for an oncoming war. Despite Serena’s hatred of all Englishmen, she finds herself falling for Brigham. The family dynamics and historical setting make this an excellent story.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Jane is an orphan abused and sent to a cruel school. Despite her upbringing she becomes a strong-willed independent young woman who becomes a governess at the mysterious Thornfield house. As her love for Rochester, her employer, grows, so do the secrets of the manor. Filled with sinister Gothic tones and dots of humor and beauty, this book is a perfect testament to the awesomeness of classic literature.
