Elsie Loves Romance!
This Saturday is Bookstore Romance Day, a day designed to give independent bookstores an opportunity to celebrate Romance fiction—its books, readers, and writers.
We asked Elsie, our biggest romance fan, to recommend some of her favorites. Elsie loves classic romances, but she also has a fondness for Betty Neels, a Harlequin Romance favorite. We hope these selections give you a moment of love and a romantic read.
See all the Bookstore Romance Day virtual events here.
