Jen Ev Eve | 81 comments Tropes I would LOVE:
a. the protagonists were snowed in or stranded somewhere together
b. hero makes it so that the heroine is living under the same roof; as his employee for instance
c. their friends/family conspired to make it happen; matchmaking
d. they had to attend the same house party (read a few historical romances with this trope and they'd be welcome, but a contemporary equivalent would be nice too...maybe a friend's destination wedding or something similar)
e. they're taking a road trip together (A Week to Be Wicked comes to mind)
f. unexpected roommate

Tropes I'd be okay with (BUT I'm sorta tired of):
a. fake engagements to fool family or society
b. hero is heroine's bodyguard
c. working together to solve a murder or uncover a villain (It's okay if there's a murder or villain as a side plot but I don't want the mystery to be the thing that brings them together in the first place)
d. sea voyage with pirates or captains, where heroine is kidnapped or stows away

Not looking for fantasy, paranormal, sci-fi genres

Cycad | 111 comments Betty Neels loved this. From being snowed in - The Fifth Day of Christmas and An Old-Fashioned Girl - to the heoine working for him - Two Weeks to Remember, A Girl to Love - she used it frequently. Bear in mind her romances were notoriously chaste - a kiss is about as racy as she got.

hero requires that the heroine live in his house in exchange for him helping the town

My favorites include It Happened One Autumn and Scandal in Spring by Lisa Kleypas. I also loved The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn.

I've also read a few others in this list (https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1...), but it's been a few years so I personally can't recommend any by name.

Books that were recommended to me by friends that I have yet to read
What I Did For a Duke
Do You Want to Start a Scandal
At the Bride Hunt Ball.
