Join fifteen bestselling, award-winning, and up-and-coming authors as they reimagine some of the most popular tropes in the romance genre.
Fake relationships. Enemies to lovers. Love triangles and best friends, mistaken identities and missed connections. This collection of genre-bending and original stories celebrates how love always finds a way, featuring powerful flora, a superhero and his nemesis, a fantastical sled race through snow-capped mountains, a golf tournament, the wrong ride-share, and even the end of the world. With stories written by Rebecca Barrow, Ashley Herring Blake, Gloria Chao, Mason Deaver, Sara Farizan, Claire Kann, Malinda Lo, Hannah Moskowitz, Natasha Ngan, Rebecca Podos, Lilliam Rivera, Laura Silverman, Amy Spalding, Rebecca Kim Wells, and Julian Winters this collection is sure to sweep you off your feet.
Fifteen authors offer up tales inspired and informed by classic romance tropes in this pleasing anthology, which delivers an enjoyable selection of kisses, confessions, and happy-for-nows. Alongside a variety of character backgrounds, gender identities, and pairings, editors and contributors Blake (Hazel Bly and the Deep Blue Sea) and Podos (The Wise and the Wicked) curate a range of moods, genres, and themes. In Malinda Lo's Chinese-inspired speculative "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," fix-it genius Fei Cheng encounters a runaway princess aboard a space station. Julian Winters's "What Makes Us Heroes" sees Black superhero-in-training Shai finding common ground with golden-complexioned, former friend-turned-villain Kyan at a coffee shop. Realistic contemporaries include Amy Spalding's "Five Stars," which involves a white teen being mistaken for a rideshare driver, and Mason Deaver's "Boys Noise," in which two white members of a popular boy band one cis, one trans escape their handlers for an unsupervised birthday excursion to New York City. Fun and frothy, this is a candy box of romantic stories boasting joyful, satisfying conclusions. Ages 13 up. Agent: Rebecca Podos, Rees Literary.
