To explain a little about what this post will be about, every Trope Tuesday post starts with the same introduction. In every romance book you read there are tropes or archetypes you find inside its pages. You can also see them in shows, movies, plays, etc. Every type of entertainment and media. 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 even more. Trope Tuesday is a weekly column where I share books that I know people will enjoy with a specific central trope.
What is a trope? Urban Dictionary explains it best: “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. 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. So really? I’m just helping you find that new favorite book of yours. If ever you want a post on a trope I haven’t done yet, do drop me a tweet at @thebookvoyagers and let me know!
I remember watching Hart of Dixie (the best romance show ever!) and loving so very much whenever Zoe Hart treated Wade Kinsella and they were very, very close and you could see and feel the sexual tension from all the way to your living room. I am choosing to do doctor romances today because like three days ago Beth (@bandherbooks) tweeted about loving doctor romances which I also agree and adore. All of the authors below are outstanding writers who deliver beautiful and timeless love stories to our lives.
Pulling Doubles by Christina C. Jones
This time Ms. Christina C. Jones brings us a fun and romantic nurse/doctor story that will bring you to your knees. This is the second book in The Wright Brothers series but can be read as a standalone. Highly recommend also picking up Getting Schooled (book #1), it’s one of the greatest romances I’ve ever read.
All Devyn wants is to finish her yearlong internship at University Hospital. This becomes complicated because of one know-it-all, arrogant Dr. Joseph Wright. He doesn’t do doctors, nurses, anything related to his work at University Hospital. He likes to separate professional and private.
She can’t stand him, and it seems like he can’t stand her as well… or?
Acute Reactions by Ruby Lang
Ruby Lang is one of my favorite authors writing romance right now. Her Practice Perfect series is a lighthearted pleasure to read and I definitely recommend picking them up. Acute Reactions is the first in the series and introduces a hero with allergies and the allergist who is supposed to be helping him but he suddenly finds himself falling in love with her.
The Doctor’s Discretion by EE Ottoman
This phenomenal historical romance takes place in New York City in 1831, between two doctors. One of them is William, a doctor who prefers books over patients, and Augustus, a retired Navy surgeon who has lost a hand. Their sweet romance will be disrupted by the arrival of a patient that both of them will do their very best to rescue.
Rafe by Rebekah Weatherspoon
Not only my favorite novel of 2018, Rafe is outstanding in every single aspect. Rebekah Weatherspoon gave us a male nanny falling in love with a successful heart surgeon and her twin daughters. You couldn’t ask for a better romance. This takes the cake and I bow down to Weatherspoon every single time I reread this novel.
Dr. Sloan is in need of a caretaker for her twin daughters when her live-in nanny bails with no warning. Here comes Rafe and he is all the things she’s looking for in a nanny. He’s also really hot, tatted, ripped and everything in between.
