Other fantasy romances I’ve recently enjoyed include…
Janine Ashbless - The King’s Viper
What I liked best about this one is that the hero’s thoughts and motivations are obscure through much of the story with a big emotional reveal at the end. I’m a particular fan of that kind of antihero/hero tension so if you have any recs for books with darker heroes, let me have ‘em.
Grace Draven – Entreat Me
This one's a beauty and the beast retelling. I think I still prefer Draven’s Master of Crows, but Entreat Me is definitely a solid story with excellent writing, interesting characters and a nice, slow build romance.
And… well, that’s it really. I’ve tried about a half dozen others over the past few months that didn’t work for me. You’ll notice my fantasy preferences fall on the side of the historical and more realistic, but I can get behind sorcerers and dragons if you have recommendations for something more fantastical.
I’ve been eyeing this one but the sample didn't completely grab me. Have you read it?
