Need romance books without love triangles. I enjoy JR Ward’s books. Any ideas?
In a romance mood! However, I am really picky with romance books. Can’t have love triangles nor any tragic breaking up. However, it doesn’t have to be completely focused on the romance per sé, just strongly intertwined. I’m also a sucker for the bad boy/sweet girl trope (I know I know), and paranormal/supernatural romances. Any ideas? It’s the love triangles I have the hardest time getting around. They just spoil it for me. I enjoy JR Ward’s books but she has too many with triangles in it. Thank you! ❤️❤️❤️
Idk if this would be up your alley, but Rose Gordon writes some great Regency novels, they aren’t too riskay, but still a good read. ?
The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon ❤️
There is kind of a love triangle in this one but very different from the sort you mentioned
Anything by Julia Quinn or sarah maclean. I also like lauren willig’s pink carnation series.
By real life couple Lloyd/Rees, they have various titles but this is their best, to my taste, in a Bridget Jones style.
It’s a bit of a stretch, bust Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson has, in my opinion, a very beautiful love story that’s unique, interesting, and I think more believable than most love stories I’ve seen. The kind of love story that you’d hear from an old couple that have been married for decades, albeit within a fantasy setting.
Vin, the main character, is a street urchen and ends up with Ellend Venture heir to the strongest Noble house in the final empire.
Again, maybe a long shot, but my personal favorite love story I’ve ever read.
You all rock! I’m loving all of these suggestions! ? I’m down for simple innocent romance all the way to straight up erotic so they’re all perfect! ❤️
Have you tried the Nocturne Falls series by Kristen Painter? They are light paranormal romance & quite entertaining in my opinion. 🙂
I love these! I love her Jayne Frost books too
@Amanda, I just picked up the first Jayne Frost book. Are they just as good?
@Michelle I think so.
More mystery than romance though
Thanks. Looking forward to reading them. 🙂
Linda Howard: Dream Man, Diamond Bay, Kill or Tell., Mr. Perfect Just avoid her 2000 titles.
Well, if you dare or care – Story of O, Pauline Réage. Striking, erotic, sad.
Darynda Jones has a series, The Charley Davidson series. Paranormal romance
Darynda Jones Charlie Davidson series!
Great minds think alike
Bel Canto remains one of our book group picks that not everyone loved but generated lots of discussion…l was one of the few that love it?
Christina Dodd has some great suspense and supernatural romance.
The Butler Cove trilogy by Boyd. Ever sea is book #1. Bad boy/good girl… right up your alley.
Rachel Gibson, Jennifer Crusie…
Ilona Andrews Edge series is sooo good.
The Bronze Horseman – historical fiction but with the best love story I’ve read in forever.
A Stranger in Wynnedower – Grace Greene
Uprooted by Naomi Novik
The Time Traveler’s Wife.
The fever series by Karen Marie moning
Frederica by Georgette Heyer. And then you’ll be hooked on all her other books which seem like just your cup of tea.
I just read the hardest fall, it was football player meets very awkward girl and I was cracking up but it was a nice story to
Getting this one next! The premise is perfect ????
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen is my favourite.
Thank you all times a million! I’m still looking up each on goodreads and LOVING them all so far ?
Maybe Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead?
Nalini Singh start with Angel’s Blood 🙂
Mystic Cove by Tricia OMalley
The carpathian series.
Diane Duvall’s Immortal Guardians. I second (maybe third at this point ?) Darynda Jones’s Charley Davidson. If you like historicals, Stephanie Lauren’s Cynsters. Elizabeth Hunter: Ink a Love Story on 7th and Main. R J Blain: Hoofin’ It. Grace Burrowes: Sweetest Kisses series. Also second the Kristen Painter series but note that many others write in her universe as well.
Try Marian Keyes They have really good back stories to the romance
I would suggest Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series, as the first book, Soulless, would fit the bill! I think it’s classed as fantasy horror, but that’s just because there are vampires and werewolves – there’s good romance in it too.
