Harlequin Addiction 2020

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.  (And that didn’t happen, obviously.  So, I’ll continue on these into 2021 and some I’ve moved to my Harlequin-style blog at Happily Ever After Romance if you haven’t checked it out yet.) 

I’ve divided the page in “Harlequin Lines” 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)  Once the series has been completed I’ll remove it from this list because once completed the information will be on the blog with links to the other titles in that series in the review post.
