10 Swoon-Worthy Romance Reads

February is supposed to be the month of romance, so why not share some of my favorite romance-y stories with you! 

Some of my favorite reads involve two people meeting and falling in love. There is something so beautiful about the process. I am a huge sucker for a good happy ending. 

While I don’t promote specific products or services, a lot of these books are available via Kindle Unlimited so for $10 a month you can read a large number of books. 

Regardless these books made me smile and I loved every moment of the journey in each of these stories. 


Three Blind Dates by Meghan Quinn
Dating By Numbers Series

Meghan Quinn is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Three Blind Dates stars a Morning TV show host and her quest for love. She decides to sign up for an online dating app that is guaranteed to match you with your one true love in a blind date fashion that allows the daters to meet in a safe space.

As the main character goes on these dates, I could not put this book down. I absolutely loved this story and even in a world filled with technology, as the reader you are left feeling hopeful that love can be found in a world full of technological distractions.

Here’s a summary of the book:
“Good Morning Malibu, it’s another beautiful day on the west coast! I’m Noely Clark, your host: and I’m in the market for love…”

When the publicity team of the new local restaurant, Going in Blind, began their search for a hot, local celebrity to promote the wildly popular eatery, they couldn’t have found a better person than me.

Outgoing? Check.
Single? Check.
Open to finding love? Check.

I signed up immediately.

A hopeless romantic with an exceedingly demanding schedule, I’ve found it impossible to find the man of my dreams — so Going in Blind seems too good to be true! That’s until they start setting me up on dates — three very different, very attractive, very distinct blind dates — and only one thing is for certain…

I’m in big trouble.

Good Morning Malibu,
I’m Noely Clark, and I have a choice to make.
The question is who will I choose; the suit, the rebel, or the jock.

Waiting for Prince Harry by Aven Ellis
Dallas Demons series #1

Okay, so if you’re reading this book expecting Prince Harry to make an appearance, I’ll just crush those dreams of yours now. What Ellis writes is so much better!

I will also give the disclaimer that this is a sports romance, but it’s such a fun read that I hope you give it a chance.

Here’s a summary of the book:
Twenty-four-year-old Kylie Reed has always been a rule follower. Organized and cautious to a fault, her dreams for life are often filed away for future use—when she has a house, when she meets her future husband, when she has been at her visual display job at a chic Dallas boutique longer. Kylie always has a reason for living her life in the future, not in the present, and fears not living her life to the fullest and reaching her dream of becoming a fashion designer.

The only exception to rules, of course, would be running away with Prince Harry. But living in Dallas and not knowing Prince Harry make this a non-option.

Or does it?

Because when Kylie accidentally falls into the lap of a gorgeous ginger guy—yes, even more gorgeous than the real Prince Harry—all bets are off. Kylie’s life takes some unexpected twists and turns thanks to this encounter. Could this stranger be the one to show Kylie how to live in the present?

Well Met by Jen DeLuca
Well Met Series #1

TBH, I wasn’t sure I was going to really be into this storyline. I’m not much of a Ren Faire enthusiast but I saw other readers really enjoy this book. So, I decided to give it a try.

This book had me smiling, giggling and swooning.

Here’s a summary of the book:
All’s faire in love and war for two sworn enemies who indulge in a harmless flirtation in a laugh-out-loud rom-com from debut author, Jen DeLuca.

Emily knew there would be strings attached when she relocated to the small town of Willow Creek, Maryland, for the summer to help her sister recover from an accident, but who could anticipate getting roped into volunteering for the local Renaissance Faire alongside her teenaged niece? Or that the irritating and inscrutable schoolteacher in charge of the volunteers would be so annoying that she finds it impossible to stop thinking about him?

The faire is Simon’s family legacy and from the start he makes clear he doesn’t have time for Emily’s lighthearted approach to life, her oddball Shakespeare conspiracy theories, or her endless suggestions for new acts to shake things up. Yet on the faire grounds he becomes a different person, flirting freely with Emily when she’s in her revealing wench’s costume. But is this attraction real, or just part of the characters they’re portraying?

This summer was only ever supposed to be a pit stop on the way to somewhere else for Emily, but soon she can’t seem to shake the fantasy of establishing something more with Simon, or a permanent home of her own in Willow Creek.

The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez

This book was a super cute and fun read. While I couldn’t connect with Kristen over her pending surgery, I could at least empathize with her and the fact that she didn’t know or what to share the information with anyone. This story gave me all of the feels and I would actually consider reading this again.

Here’s a summary of the book:
Kristen Petersen doesn’t do drama, will fight to the death for her friends, and has no room in her life for guys who just don’t get her. She’s also keeping a big secret: facing a medically necessary procedure that will make it impossible for her to have children.

Planning her best friend’s wedding is bittersweet for Kristen—especially when she meets the best man, Josh Copeland. He’s funny, sexy, never offended by her mile-wide streak of sarcasm, and always one chicken enchilada ahead of her hangry. Even her dog, Stuntman Mike, adores him. The only catch: Josh wants a big family someday. Kristen knows he’d be better off with someone else, but as their attraction grows, it’s harder and harder to keep him at arm’s length

Royal Date by Sariah Wilson
The Royals of Monterra Series #1

Foreign County? Check.
Prince? Check.
Hard Set Boundaries? Check.
Extremely clumsiness? Check.

This story captivated me from the first chapter and I loved reading all of the books in this series. 

Here’s a summary of the book:
This Cinderella didn’t plan on a prince…

Kat MacTaggart is a girl who has a plan for everything—including her holiday ski trip to Monterra with her best friend. Everything is going according to plan until she finds herself careening out of control down a mountainside and being rescued by a guy who looks like Superman’s hotter Italian cousin.

HRH Prince Nico is intrigued by the woman he saved on the slopes and her refusal to date him. He offers Kat a deal—let him show her his country and he’ll pay her to write articles that will help Monterra’s tourism industry. Kat agrees, but given her past and lingering distrust of men, she has one condition—absolutely no kissing.

Thanks to the claims of a jealous British noblewoman and the schemes of a meddling paparazzo, Kat’s rule doesn’t seem to be a problem at first. But the more Kat gets to know Nico and the people around him, the harder it is to remember her keep-your-distance plan. Should she stick to it or risk everything for a chance at happily ever after?

Stealing the Bride by Nadia Lee

Okay so the opener of this book had me gasping and yelling in my head “No way!”
As the title suggests, the book opens with the main guy running back down the aisle with the bride over his shoulder.
But as you find out, the bride is actually the main gal’s identical twin sister. I was definitely laughing out loud at many parts of this book.

Here’s a little summary of the book:
When the hottest woman I ever slept with leaves me fifty bucks and sneaks out of my bed, I’m completely stunned and left feeling a little…dirty.

Most men might let it go. But I’m not most men. This woman has left her mark and I have to track her down.

Imagine my surprise when I discover that she’s getting married…

So I do what’s most l steal the bride. Except…am I even at the right wedding?

To Marry a Prince by Sophie Page

I had this book on my TBR shelf and when I finally got the book in my hands, I read this in a few days because the story was just sweet. Bella is just a normal girl living her normal life until one night changed it all for her.

Here’s a summary of the book:
One night is about to change Bella’s life for ever…

Bella Greenwood isn’t a fairytale girl. If pushed, she’d probably tell you that her perfect wedding would involve a handful of close friends and family. But as she’s never met anyone she’d like to marry, it’s a moot point.

Until, in a midnight garden, Bella is helped out of an embarrassing situation by a tall, dark, handsome man with laughing eyes. And suddenly her life changes for ever, because the man is the world’s most eligible bachelor: Prince Richard, heir to the throne.

Richard sweeps her off her feet, and before she knows it they’re engaged. Which is when Bella’s problems really begin. Suddenly she is public property, and as if it isn’t enough to have her every move watched – while also learning to curtsy and negotiating the etiquette of how to address her future mother-in-law – she soon finds herself embroiled in bridesmaid politics, a right royal hen night, and a wedding dress controversy that causes a national scandal…

Can this ordinary girl survive the preparations for her very own Royal Wedding?

Accidental Tryst by Natasha Boyd
Charleston Series #1

How much would you freak out if you were at an airport and realized you didn’t have your phone, but instead having the phone of a complete stranger. That’s exactly what happens to Emmy and Trystan as they crossed paths at the same airport. 
But what becomes sweet about this is how they continue to talk and get to know each other. This is the type of story I wish would we hear about in real life.

Here’s a summary of the book:
Meet Trystan Montgomery. Suit monkey, commitment-phobic serial dater. No more than three dates, unless he hasn’t … you know.

What a disaster! I only just made my flight to New York to help my uncle, and the phone I’m holding is not mine! It seems to belong to some commitment-phobic serial dater who’s never made it past four dates (according to the constant notifications he’s getting from his fake dating profile…) And worse? I have a sinking feeling it’s that hot suit-monkey with the arctic grey eyes I just had a run-in with at the airport. Somehow I have to persuade him not to get a new phone until I get back. My whole life is on that phone. It’s only a few days. Surely we can handle it.

Trystan :
This is a joke, right? My life could not get more f*cked up. I’m in the middle of selling my company and on my way to a funeral and that hot mess hippie-chick stole my freaking phone. I’m not sure how she convinced me not to immediately walk into a smart phone store and get a new one, but now she’s going to have to play stand in and distract me while I deal with my long-avoided and estranged family. I don’t have my dating apps after all, and frankly she’s pretty funny. And sexy. And why can’t I stop texting her? And now we’re talking. And … look, I’ll admit that I usually run for the hills the morning after, but the morning after phone sex? That’s not really real, right?

Fair Catch by Meghan Quinn
Love and Sports series #1

As I said previously, Meghan Quinn’s are a treat to read. I really loved connecting with Lexi and her passion to play her sport and get good grades. So you can’t blame her when she wants nothing to do with the school’s biggest partier/most popular guy. But when they started connecting and Jake started trying, I couldn’t put my Kindle down.

Now Presenting by Elizabeth Stevens
I’m No Princess series #1

Okay, so in picking up this read, I was a little lost for a bit but then was able to put pieces together and fell in love with the story. This book series made me laugh a lot but all in all, it was really a sweet story that I enjoyed reading a lot. 

Here’s a summary of the book:
It’s time for me to join my dad and older sister in Gallyr, to dust off the cobwebs and leather jackets of a normal person’s life and don the mantle of Lady Tatiana Bethany Penrose.

For the first time, all eyes are on me and I have to be presented to society at a ball in my honour. So begin the lessons; dancing, dress, dinner etiquette.

Now, all I need to do is not spill my beer on or set fire to my date; the youngest son of my dad’s best friend, the Gallyrian King.

Not even Heaven can help me now.
