This isn't romance, but if you like fantasy or sci-fi, I highly recommend this short story anthology, which is free in the Kindle store: All These Shiny Worlds: The 2016 ImmerseOrDie Anthology

Cyliena | 246 comments I think for 2019 I'm going to start limiting my reading list to 4 and 5 stars. It's not that I don't enjoy the ones I rate 3 stars, but those are ones that leave me thinking "that book was OK." I'd rather share what's exceptional with y'all. :)
