Love à la Mode, by Stephanie Kate Strohm

I read Stephanie Kate Strohm’s Prince in Disguise during the 2017 holiday season and absolutely devoured it. With Love à la Mode, she’s now on my (very short) must-read author list.

Henry is in high school, but he’s been chosen out of thousands of applicants to attend one of the most elite cooking programs in the world—a year in Paris! It’s his wildest dream come true, but his mother is not on board. From an ocean away, she’s going to make the best year of his life into a living hell. But he has to survive it. He has to. Not just for his dreams, but for Rosie.

Rosie’s in the same program, but she’s more of a baker than a cook. She’s failing in class, proving to be terrible at the one thing she loves most in the world, and they’ve made it very clear that not everyone gets to stay the full year. She’s already lost more than any kid should have to, and she’s struggling to hold on to the first thing she’s cared about in a very long time. The first two things—her year in Paris, and Henry.

Help us find this fantasy romcom a forever home! (Even if we have to build it ourselves.)

Enchanted, Inc., by Shanna Swendson

Erin, here. I don’t get riled up very often, but I’m stomping around like an ogre in a hobbit shire today. Why? Because I’m on a fantasy romcom kick, and, apparently, Amazon doesn’t have a category for that. I mean, seriously? There’s a whole category dedicated to literary critiques of 18th-century philosophers and poets, for heaven’s sake! (The number 2 best-seller in that category has zero reviews, by the way. Toss those episodic poets some love, people. I mean, come on.)

I noticed it while looking at today’s feature. I thought, “Hey, this looks great! I’ll post this one, and I’ll find some more like it to add to our list over the next few months!” Only, when I clicked on its category listings, none of those books were anything like this one. At all. Let’s look at some examples, shall we?

Some Assistance Required, by C.L. Ogilvie

Glenda Melner has a mother who (probably) can’t remember her name, a new lawyer boss who happens to be a vampire, and a best friend who’s convinced Glen won’t survive her first week on the job. The firm comes complete with a shapeshifter who can’t shift, a fairy who can’t fly, a hyperborean who can’t be bothered to give a mere human the time of day, and vampire-hating protestors who lob garlic at the lobby. Not to mention the orc at the security desk.

Soon Glenda is embroiled in a hot supernatural mess, and I loved every minute of it. The book is a standalone, but I wish it weren’t because I adored the main character and the entire ensemble cast. I would buy another book about them all in a second!!!

Supernatural murder and an alpaca. A magical romantic comedy… with a body count.

Supernatural murder and an alpaca. A magical romantic comedy… with a body count.

Hoofin’ It, by RJ Blain

$0.99 Kindle Sale ($4.99)

What do FBI agents, vampires, witches, glass eyes, alpacas, and a wicked sense of humor all have in common? You guessed it: Hoofin’ It, by RJ Blain. I read the first chapter and then bought it immediately for only $0.99. I laughed at the spitting alpaca. I laughed at the conversation Shane has with his mother. Heck, I laughed at the dialog with the 911 operator, but there’s probably something wrong with me.

I even laughed at the dedication. Here, look. I screenshotted it for you.

A Big Time Lawyer Becomes the Worst Housemaid Ever

The Undomestic Goddess, by Sophie Kinsella

I love romantic comedies. I do. It’s a sorry-not-sorry habit I indulge in when I need something just for me–like chocolate, or naps on the porch. This one is a stand-alone New York Times bestseller, which makes it a great introduction to the author. I bought it based on the sample because the deal was just too good to pass up.

Plus, that cover!
