Back to the Good Fortune Diner by Vicki Essex

My favourite Harlequin series
*I would be remiss if I didn’t mention this behemoth romance publisher.

Harlequin Kiss series
*The books in this series I would consider contemporary. While one or two of them go together, others will be standalone reads. They are pretty short and very entertaining. The link is to the publisher’s website to see the list of book titles. I’m not associated with this publisher. I just like them.

My favourite memoir
*I consider this a romance because she is actively looking for lust and love. The link is to my review.
