Jan I forgot who the secondary romance in the Mane Squeeze was about...


namericanwordcat Hmmmm. What was that? I wil have to reread. What an awful thing since it is one of my favorite books and everything.


message 3: by Jan (new)

Jan Ha! You don't remember and add it to the list? Sneeky!


namericanwordcat lol I just have a shelf called secondary love or something. I am going to take it off for now actually because I don't remember and it might have been a misclick! However, I did read a wonderful book last night with a great well developed secondary romance which I will add.


message 5: by Natalie (new)

Natalie Some of these books don't have secondary romances. This is just a weird list.


message 6: by Jan (new)

Jan If you point out which books don't have a secondary romance, I'll delete them.


message 7: by Natalie (new)

Natalie You're right. It was silly of me to just say that and not point out some examples.

Slightly series - I racked my brain and couldn't think of secondary romances.

Kiss me if you can - just finished reading it and there was no secondary romance.

Those are just off the top of my head. I'll look through later and see if anything comes to mind.


message 8: by Jan (new)

Jan I'll get Kiss me if you can. I seem to recall that the governess in Slightly Married married the reverend? I wouldn't classify that as a secondary romance myself, but I can see that someone else might take this very broadly and include it.


message 9: by Natalie (new)

Natalie I added a few faves of mine. I hope you don't mind.


message 10: by Jan (new)

Jan Of course not. that's the whole idea behind lists :)


message 11: by namericanwordcat (last edited Feb 13, 2012 10:15AM) (new)

namericanwordcat Thanks so much for the clean up. I love a good secondary romance, clearly. The wonderful thing about lists is that everyone can add in their ideas but we need pruning too.

I added a note about making comments as to who the romance is between. I shall do so on my votes very soon.


message 12: by Riley (new)

Riley Banks There are a number of secondary romances in Vampire Origins - Nate and Tash, Anna and Ryder, Max and Renee. Even Vlad and Rose have a love hate relationship going on.


message 13: by willaful (new)

willaful I don't remember a secondary romance in Morning Glory.


message 14: by namericanwordcat (new)

namericanwordcat I did a reread recently...but not that recently...can't recall it either. Wonder if it was my misclick!
