There are few things more powerful than a good story. No matter what the genre is, a good story can mess with your emotions big time, some times even to the point of therapy. (I’m looking at you, 1984.) Here are ten heart-wrenching romances that you want to read today.
1. His Lady Mistress by Elizabeth Rolls
Genre: Regency, Adult
Average Goodreads rating: 3.44
When Earl Maxwell finds a young, abused servant in the home of unfortunate acquaintances, he does the only thing he can think of to help her: sleep with her and take her on as his mistress (duh). The girl in question, Verity, is perfectly happy with this arrangement. She would do anything to get out of her aunt and uncle’s house, and since she thinks Max is hot, being his mistress until she can purchase an annuity and live independently isn’t a bad deal. Unfortunately for her, Max is about to discover her real identity. When he finds out that she is the daughter of his late commanding officer, he’ll feel honor-bound to marry her– even if he can never forgive her for her deceit.
His Lady Mistress is available on AllRomance.

Two weeks ago, my dad stormed into the living room to find me sitting on the couch, reading Once Upon a Time by Maggie Shayne. “Why weren’t you at breakfast?” He asked.
I pointed to the book (well, my phone with the downloaded ebook). “This is more important than food.”
Anyone who knows me knows this. Nothing is more important to me than food. All of my impulse buys are food. The only way to get me to show up to most events is to give me food. If I’m hungry at three in the morning, then I walk to the grocery store to get food.
That morning, Once Upon a Time was more important than food. Continue reading “Win Bestselling Author Maggie Shayne’s Once Upon a Time Boxed Set Today”
Many a man has died of longing for one such as her. For her skin has the flavor of honey which contains a magic all its own. Once a man’s lips taste her nectar, he is bound to her for all his days. Be forewarned, then, for her spell cannot be broken. Look for the sign of the cradle moon above the mound of Venus. Be it pale, you might yet escape with our heart and mind intact. But be it crimson, she is of royal blood, and too strong for a mortal man’s resistance.
