To explain a little about what this post will be about, I’m taking the intro I did for the last one: In every romance book you read there are tropes or archetypes. You can also see them in shows, movies, plays, etc. Romantic tropes are everywhere, and they are fabulous. I adore them and I always tend to find my favorite ones in romance books so I can enjoy them more. I decided to do a sort of Trope Tuesday piece where I will be talking about many tropes and recommend you all some of my favorites that fit.
What is a trope? Urban Dictionary explains it best I think: “Despite the erroneous definitions already published here, trope on the interwebs really refers to an often overused plot device. It can also be described as another variation on the same theme. TV shows, movies, comics, games, anime’, & books are full of tropes & many rabid fan-sites now name & track said tropes with a self-explanatory title for each one.” We can name a few: accidental pregnancy, best friends to lovers, sibling’s best friend, marriage of convenience, and so many more for sure. Your favorite couples? They probably got a trope too! It’s always so nice to realize or find out your favorite romance trope and keep searching for books with the same theme.
Mother’s Day is fast approaching here in Mexico (The 10th!). So why not choose the moms in romance novels for this week’s Trope Tuesday? I’m here talking about the mom as the protagonist so that includes every single mom possible: single moms, biological moms, non-biological moms, etc. But I will also include characters that had to take in a niece/sister/or someone related to them because the child’s parent couldn’t be there, I also think that even though they aren’t their parents if they will be there now on they should be considered.
Get ready to enjoy there 3 romance novels featuring moms!
Wrong to Need You by Alisha Rai
The Forbidden Hearts trilogy is an epic series featuring three couples that you won’t be able to stop reading about. Wrong to Need You is all about Sadia Ahmed and Jackson Kane. She’s his brother’s widow and Jackson thinks it’s many levels of wrong but even after many years away from her, he can’t stop loving her…
If you’re scared of sequels when the first book was so Good, don’t worry. Wrong to Need You is just as amazing as Hate to Want You and the third act, Hurts to Love You, is the greatest conclusion ever.
Beastly Desires by Nikki Winter
Kamali’s son is wanted dead and she’s wanted as a trophy for a man who craves taking everything her surname is attached to. Just when her battle begins and running seems to be the most viable option, she stumbles into the presence of one pushy, overbearing, food obsessed tiger who doesn’t seem too interested in letting her go…
If you’re interested in paranormal romances, Beastly Desires is the one book you should pick up. It features a black woman who also happens to be a lion shifter and a single mom! The hero is a biracial Russian/Indian tiger shifter who you will fall madly in love with and won’t stop swooning over. Expect lots of flirty banter and intense moments.
North to You by Tif Marcelo
Also a big fan of Tif Marcelo, I couldn’t help myself and wrote down North to You for this list. This mom role is different than the rest because our protagonist is the sole guardian of her eighteen-year-old sister. Her sister only has Camille and Camille is trying her hardest to be the best version of herself so her sister has a good life. Also she’s the head chef and owner of her own food truck so life is pretty busy right now. Until Drew walks back into her life.
