Remember First Love on Valentine’s Day!

Under Pressure by Lori Foster

Happy Valentine's Day! We're thrilled to welcome Lori Foster (Under Pressure) to Heroes and Heartbreakers. For many, Lori Foster is among their first romance novels, but today Lori is here to talk about different first loves—the kind that end in happy ever afters! Thanks, Lori!

I haven’t read many books based on Valentine’s Day (although I’ve written a few!) but I have read books that are perfect for the holiday. The books that immediately come to mind feature—ta da!—first love. With that idea in mind, I have several I’d like to recommend that range from YA, to historical, and contemporary.

The queen of first love stories is, in my opinion, Katie McGarry. She writes the most amazing, mature, emotional, and sexy YA stories where the characters fall in love and you know it’s forever. I’ve loved all her books, but my absolute favorite is Chasing Impossible, because Logan’s love saved Abby, when she was on the verge of being lost. Oh, how I loved that story, and I know you will too!

A veteran of writing first love, and one of my favorite go-to authors, is Johanna Lindsey. Oh, those Mallory boys! The two most famous (infamous?) of course, are Anthony and James, the first being a “connoisseur of women,” and the older brother being “a gentleman pirate.” But when they fell in love, it was forever - and hilarious, and so entertaining that I revisit those book, as well as the entire Mallory and Anderson clan, quite often. If you haven’t read her before (though I can’t imagine anyone who hasn’t!) start with Love Only Once, then go to Anthony’s story in Tender Rebel, then Gentle Rogue with James. Trust me, you’ll be glomming the whole historical series.

[So many first loves...]
