This year, I am splitting off my favorite romances into two posts: favorite romance novels and favorite romance novellas and novelettes.

So I thought it was a good time for this post. At the end of 2016 I did a recommendations list for short form romance … Continue reading Short Form Fiction I Enjoyed in 2017
