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 decided to do a volume 2 for this trope because recently I’ve read some really great ones featuring the marriage of convenience trope. You totally want to check out part one because the titles I mention there are amazing! 

One of the reasons I love this trope is the fact that they’re already together when this faux romance starts. They always have to live together somehow, be in close quarters, share their own lives with this other person they just married because of personal reasons. They start to learn about each other and like that other person. Most of the time they tell themselves they can’t possibly fall in love, it’s just a contract, it’s just for a few days, months, etc. But it never happens like that. It’s wonderful to see and be there for the growth of the characters, together and as their own person. These next books all feature this growth and a romance you won’t be able to forget about.

Xeni by Rebekah Weatherspoon

Rebekah continues to write my favorite books. I told her this one stole my heart. Rafe was my current favorite of hers, but I think Xeni takes the crown. I experienced all types of emotions when I was reading this book and I would do it all over, just to experience them again. If I could do it for the first time, that’d be the dream. I had the time of my life and you will too when you pick it up.

Xeni just lost her favorite aunt, but she left her a little surprise. For her and Scotsman Mason. Aunt Sable left them lots of money, oh yes. The only problem? They have to marry each other. At least for 30 days. They decide to agree to the terms, it’s only 30 days! But with cute text messages, reactions gifs, home cooking, spending more and more time with each other, this is all starting to look and feel real for them both. But Xeni is leaving, back to her family. What will happen then?

White Whiskey Bargain by Jodie Slaughter

Let me introduce you to one of my recent favorites. Jodie Slaughter is fantastic. If you love romance books, I do have to tell you that Jodie is a must. White Whiskey Bargain is her most recent title and I couldn’t love it more. 

This time we have a moonshining business. Well, we have two. Rivals, as a matter of fact. These two rival businesses have a new enemy and they need to unite somehow, after all these years. How? By marrying each other. Hannah, boss of her own family, agrees to marry the son of her rivals, Javier. She wants to do right by her family and by her mother’s memory. And she thinks this is the right way. But she doesn’t expect Javier and his humor and sweetness. And he. is. everywhere. in. her. house! Reading about these two made my day.

Lush Money by Angelina M. Lopez

And if you want a little bit of royalty in your romance, Lush Money will fit perfectly for your needs. A businesswoman meeting a prince? A billionaire heroine who only wants a princess for a daughter so she comes up with an offer he can’t refuse? Three nights a month only. This self-made billionaire can save his country if only he gives her what she wants. A baby. 

I know! It’s everything you have asked for and now Carina Press has delivered. Angelina M. Lopez has given us the romance story of our dreams.
