Romantic reads!

Posted by Jazz on Sunday February 14th, 2016

It's Valentine's Day! Why not start off the most romantic day of the year with some of our most romantic reads? Whether it's an epic time-slip romance, a hilariously awkward teen comedy or a dark and dangerous Mafia tale: we've got something for everyone ... 

Crow Mountain by Lucy Inglis

A sweeping, epic romance, Crow Mountain is the kind of tale that leaves you breathless and craving more. Set between the present day and 1866 – and taking place on the dramatic landscape of Montana – Crow Mountain has recently been shortlisted in the YA category for the Romantic Novel of the Year!

While on holiday in Montana, Hope meets local boy Cal Crow, a ranch-hand. Caught in a freak accident, the two of them take shelter in a mountain cabin where Hope makes a strange discovery. More than a hundred years earlier, another English girl met a similar fate. Her rescuer: a horse-trader called Nate. In this wild place, both girls learn what it means to survive and to fall in love, neither knowing that their fates are intimately entwined.

Lobsters by Tom Ellen & Lucy Ivison

A socially awkward love story! Hilarious, heartfelt and shortlisted for the YA Book Prize, Lobsters is an embarrassing (yet shrewd!) insight into being a teen – and specifically, that one summer before you head off to uni ...

Sam and Hannah only have the holidays to find ‘The One’. Their lobster. But instead of being epic, their summer is looking awkward. They must navigate social misunderstandings, the plotting of well-meaning friends, and their own fears of being virgins for ever to find happiness. But fate is at work to bring them together. And in the end, it all boils down to love.

Vendetta by Catherine Doyle

Gritty, thrilling and totally compelling, Vendetta is a hybrid of Romeo and Juliet and The Godfather. There's romance aplenty, a whole host of hot Mafia brothers and there's a sequel – what more could you want?

When five brothers move into the abandoned mansion nearby, Sophie Gracewell’s life changes forever. Irresistibly drawn to bad boy Nic, Sophie finds herself falling into an underworld governed by powerful families. When Sophie’s own family skeletons come to life, she must choose between two warring dynasties – the one she was born into, and the one she is falling in love with. When she does, blood will spill and hearts will break …
