Who doesn’t enjoy a good love story about falling in love with someone in another country? There’s something about it that makes such a great movie or book…though I admit that airports and airplanes are mostly romantic in our imaginations and often stressful and frustrating in real life. Lose yourself in some good fiction about catching flights and feelings! Each book will feature links to Bookshop and Amazon if you’d like to purchase–these are affiliate links, but there is no extra cost for you. Just a little bonus income to keep the lights on for this website.
(And to start with, here’s the full list on Bookshop!)
The Bride Test: Our female main character flies across the world to be with a man she’s never met before (with his mom as the matchmaker), where everything is new and unfamiliar. Helen Hoang can’t miss, and she’s definitely at the top of my “instant buy” author list.
The Unhoneymooners: The lead characters who hate each other end up on their siblings’ honeymoon in their place after a wedding buffet disaster. We’ve got forced proximity in the honeymoon suite in Hawaii, what could go wrong?
The Spanish Love Deception: A fake relationship at a wedding in Spain. Again, so much respect for Elena Armas and I just love to watch her succeed.
French Holiday: Enemies to lovers in forced proximity in a rundown villa in France. I enjoyed this one so much!
The Highland Fling: I love a good fish-out-of-water story, like this one where our female main character finds herself in a small town in Scotland running a cafe (and falling in love).
The Tourist Attraction: I loved the whole town in this sweet romance set in Alaska. Great cast of characters!
Off the Map: Their relationship starts with a cross-country roadtrip in Ireland, and takes some real turns through things like parental aging (yep, I cried reading this).
Pride, Prejudice, & Turkish Delight: Obviously, most of my own books fit into this category. Eliza finds herself a world away from home in Turkey, and sparks fly with a handsome (and difficult) colleague.
Christmas on Inishmore: Another one of mine, one that has a very special place in my heart. (This male main character might be a favorite.) Emma is stranded on Inishmore overnight, setting herself up perfectly for a forced proximity romance with a very helpful bartender.
