The Rec League: No Bleak Moment

Recommended Posts

The Rec League - heart shaped chocolate resting on the edge of a very old bookThis Rec League comes to us from Lynn. Thanks, Lynn!

I am not sure if this is too specific or too broad for a Rec League but I don’t know how else to look for this. I would love to get some recommendations for romance novels where the couple doesn’t break up/have a huge misunderstanding in the middle of the book. I’ve only read one where this was the case (Paladin’s Strength by T. Kingfisher) and it was a delight.

Sarah: The Courtney Milan with the sauce.

The Duke Who Didn’t?

Claudia: Oh wow, this shouldn’t feel like a tall order but it does. I’m going to go with The Gentle Art of Fortune Hunting by KJ Charles ( A | K | AB ). There’s a little bit of angst just to keep things interesting but no bleak moment and lots of interesting social and family dynamics.

Marriage of Unconvenience
A | BN | K | AB
Tara: Most of the f/f romances I’ve read from Chelsea M. Cameron are like that. I’d start with Marriage of Unconvenience and Who We Could Be.

Shana: This is my favorite type of romance, because I hold my breath until the end, and celebrate that lack of bleak moment. But I’m blanking on specific titles other than The Duke Who Didn’t.

Maya: These are deep within a series, but Archangel’s Enigma ( A | BN | K | AB ) and Archangel’s Sun ( A | BN | K | AB ) by Nalini Singh both lack a bleak moment. In Archangel’s Enigma, Andromeda has a secret that she’s keeping from Naasir, but it doesn’t get in the way of the romance and when she tells him it doesn’t create a conflict. He understands why she kept it to herself and has a solution to the problem that she was facing. In Archangel’s Sun, there’s no conflict, just Titus and the Hummingbird separating for a hot second because they are grown folks with responsibilities in different parts of the world and they need to see to them for a bit.

What books would you recommend? Let us know!
