5 things: unexpected love stories

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I rounded up 5 of my favorite, unexpected, slightly unconventional, but totally magical love stories.

5 things: unexpected love stories

 

Lovely, easy breezy reads with a twist. A Song for Summer is a historical romance set against WWII, while The China Garden is set in the English countryside sometime in the ’90s (I haven’t read it in a while, but I think it’s aged pretty well). UprootedShades of Milk and Honey, and Rose Daughter need little introduction. Excellent, magical girl fantasy for all.

off the shelf: Forevermore by Kristen Callihan

Sin Evernight is torn between duty and guilt. Alone and cast out after betraying his family, he is now in danger of losing the woman he’s always loved—-Layla Starling, his childhood friend and the one he thought lost to him. Can he reclaim his honor and find love?

Twists, turns, demons, and angels abound in this conclusion to the Darkest London series. If you’re looking for a steamy summer read, this may be the book for you.

Can be read as a standalone, but much more enjoyable if you’ve read the entire series. I won’t mention plots, but they are all intertwined and very well developed. My favorite is Book 4: Shadowdance. Love it. She’s a master at angst and sexy times. Smart, trashy books forever!

Check out the video for more on the series. (Sorry about the interruptions, I tried recording three times and this was the best of the lot).
