Romance That Won’t Make You Yawn or Gag

An Earthly Knight, by Janet McNaughton
Lady Jeanette Avenel is the second daughter, but she is the one who must marry a wealthy man because her elder sister is in disgrace. One day she meets a man in the woods, Tam Lin. He is said to be mad, but Jenny finds him to be gentle, kind, and handsome. Only Jenny is engaged to the king’s younger brother, Early William. Who will she choose? An excellent story based off the ballads Tam Lin, and Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight.

Crown Duel, by Sherwood Smith
The young countess Meliara, and her brother Bran recently inherited Castle Tlanth—right at the beginning of a civil war. Most of the romance appears in the second half when Mel goes to court, but the first part of the story is very well written and interesting.

Bride & Prejudice
Modern Bollywood meets Jane Austen’s classic Pride and Prejudice in this innovative, entertaining, and fun movie.

Thwonk, by Joan Bauer

A.J. McCreary dreams over the handsome Peter Terris at school, but he’ll never notice her. But then A.J. finds a headless cupid doll in the street, who comes alive, and whose name is Jonathan. He helps her catch Peter for her own, but does she really want him after all? An amusing story that really shows you should be careful what you wish for.
