This month’s recommendation is for the romantics! Jasmine Guillory has become the queen of contemporary romance, and her novels are delightful. Her stories feel more grounded in reality than many romances and are filled with characters wrestling with relatable issues.
In her second book The Proposal, Guillory’s heroine has a meet-cute with the hero in the midst of a baseball game when she receives a very public, very unwelcome marriage proposal. Both Nikole and Carlos have their reasons for avoiding a relationship but are drawn to each other despite themselves.
Readers will enjoy this ride through the joys and woes of modern romance and won’t be able to help cheering for Nikole and Carlos to find a “Happily Ever After.”
