Harlequin’s logo


I freely admit that I’m addicted to Romance stories.  And that love of “love stories” began long, long ago – so I’ve been reading Harlequin™ for my entire adult reading life.  For years I would pick up my books at the local bookstore and devour them all within a week.  Now.  Well, not only does Harlequin™ have more “designated genre lines” than ever before, but my time isn’t as free as it once was to stop everything in life and escape into another world.

So… here are the Harlequin™ titles I’ve purchased with the intent to read and review as soon as humanly possible in 2020.  Series, Mini-Series, and long story Lines will be listed separately for my own convenience in keeping up-to-date. (Bold titles are ones I have purchased, regular titles do not own, linked titles to reviews here at KB)

*update 6-2-2020 — I’m looking at this growing list and realizing that I honestly do not have the free time I once did to read simply for pleasure.  Adulting sucks at times, doesn’t it?  I’ll keep at it, perhaps begin some series binges in order to get caught up – but I’d really hoped to not be ‘this’ far behind at the half-year mark… but then, 2020 has been quite an unusual year for us all, hasn’t it?*
