Have you been curious about reading romance (we could all use a guaranteed happily ever after sometimes)? These books are the perfect smart & sexy introductions to the genre. Long-time romance reader? Hear from the authors of two of the hottest romance reads of the year! A dazzling new novel from Jasmine Guillory, “the queen of contemporary romance” (OprahMag.com), Royal Holiday is about a spontaneous holiday vacation that turns into an unforgettable romance. But when the vacation ends, will Vivian and Malcolm be able to say goodbye? In Casey McQuiston’s Red, White, and Royal Blue, Alex, the first son, finds himself falling for his nemesis, Henry, the Prince of Wales, after their fake friendship—staged as a PR stunt—turns into a secret romance that threatens to derail Alex’s mother’s reelection campaign and upend both of their countries. Moderated by McKenzie Kozman of Powell’s bookstore.
