Top Ten Tuesday: Romance Tropes (Love Freebie)

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday on Stories By Gina. Thank you for joining me for another Top Ten Tuesday with The Artsy Reader.

Todays Top Ten Tuesday theme is Book Hangovers, but it wasn’t really working for me, so I decided to go back and do the one from last week. It was a love freebie in honor of Valentine’s Day. I thought I’d share a top ten of romantic tropes and books I think that fit them. What is a trope, you say? A trope, in simple terms, is a basic plot idea that is used frequently.


1) Beauty and the Beast: The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden

2) Cinderella: Finding Lady Enderly by Joanna Davidson Politano

3) Marriage of Convenience: More Than Words Can Say by Karen Witemeyer

4) Forbidden Love: The Weaver’s Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd

5) Love Triangle: With This Pledge by Tamara Alexander

6) Opposites Attract: A Girl’s Guide to the Outback by Jessica Kate

7) Bodyguard: The Noble Guardian by Michelle Griep

8) Second Chance: Out of the Ashes by Kimberley Woodhouse and Tracie Peterson

9) Fish Out of Water: Flights of Fancy by Jen Turano

10) Mentor/Protégé (Boss, Employee): Holding the Fort by Regina Jennings

Which are your favorite tropes? Can you think of some other books that fit with the ones I shared?
