The Good Luck Charm The Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting is $2.99! If you’re looking for a sweet, second chance romance, readers on Goodreads recommend this one. But others wished the heroine had more of a backbone when dealing with things. Is it love, or is she just his good luck charm? New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting brilliantly captures the hilarity and heartache of first love and second chances in her sexy new romantic comedy. Lilah isn’t sure what hurt worse: the day Ethan left her to focus on his hockey career or the day he came back eight years later. He might think they can pick up just where they left off, but she’s no longer that same girl and never wants to be again. Ethan wants his glory days back. And that includes having Lilah by his side. With her, he was magic. They were magic. All he has to do is make her see that. Just when Lilah might finally be ready to let Ethan in, though, she finds out their reunion might have nothing to do with love and everything to do with improving his game. But Ethan’s already lost her once, and even if it…

Each week I keep hearing about new romance book clubs in bookstores and libraries, and about live events focused on romance – which is awesome! And since it is nearly February, month of “Let’s do something with romance novels” events planning, I expect there to be more. But even beyond The Power of February, I thought a post collecting all the book clubs and events I know of would be helpful each month, should you like to meet up with fellow romance fans near you. If you have a romance book club or upcoming romance event, please email me and let me know? There’s a form at the bottom of this post, and I’ll be making this a semi-regular feature. I want to help romance fans connect with one another in as many places as possible!  These are in alphabetical order by state, and here’s a menu to jump down in the post: Arizona | California | Colorado | Illinois | Massachusetts | Maryland | Bookmans Midtown, Tucson: Romance Book Club Hosted by Jess Pryde from BookRiot, and will meet the last Tuesday of every month at 6pm. This was just announced on Jess’s Instagram, and isn’t on the Bookmans…

C+ These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling May 28, 2019 · Razorbill Teen FictionLGBTQIAYoung Adult I love modern-day witches. I love queer romance. I love mysteries. I’m not typically a huge YA reader, but I like the first three things enough to give queer YA witch romance mystery These Witches Don’t Burn a try. While this book was not without its flaws, there was something quite fresh-feeling about These Witches Don’t Burn that I appreciated. It took a lot of common YA tropes, such as “I’m trying to be a normal teenager but I have Powers I must hide” and “I’m emotionally torn between my first love and the new person in town,” and queered them, which did give this book some extra life even when it went down some well-trodden paths. The book follows Hannah, a young Elemental witch living in Salem, Massachusetts. In the beginning of the book she is navigating her relationship with her ex-girlfriend and fellow Elemental witch Veronica after a recent publicly messy breakup. They are both concerned that a Blood Witch, a witch who can manipulate bodies using blood, that they got mixed up with after a recent trip to New York might…
