Five Marriage of Convenience books you’ll love

Hey everyone! Today’s India’s Independence Day and on that note of freedom, I’m presenting you a list of books with one of my favourite romance tropes, Marriage of Convenience. If you’re unfamiliar with Marriage of Convenience or are baffled at why I including many readers are addicted to tropes like these, then let me explain.

Marriage of Convenience is marrying someone out of necessity; either one of them is in danger, or in need of money, or need of citizenship..anything goes. Now, does Arranged Marriage equal Marriage of Convenience? Not really, the lines are blurry between the two. Of course, this is not the ideal foundation of a happily married life but sometimes in fiction and even in real life, love develops in mysterious ways. Love ensnares you when you’re missing someone’s smile or their nagging. Without any further ado, let’s scroll down and view what books must be on your radar if you love reading about Marriage of Convenience..

Five Marriage of Convenience books you'll love

Marriage for One

Marriage for One by Ella Maise

I can’t tell you exactly what their “convenience” is but you NEED to read this book!! The hero Jack is super Grumpy Mcgrumperson but he soon develops to Mcdreamy as the book progresses. The romance is slow burning but you’ll love it, I promise. Oh, and guess what the heroine’s name is? It’s Rose.. get it? Jack and Rose..

Serpent and Dove

Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin

Serpent and Dove will be out next month and you should absolutely read it!! Here the heroine Lou and the hero Reid (I even love his name) get married because they were caught in a compromising situation. I would say it’s more of an NA historical fantasy rather than YA.

The duchess deal

The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare

Big fan of Tessa Dare’s books! just thought I’d point that out.. Anyway, our hero is war vet Duke of Ashbury or Ash and he needs an heir ASAP. ok, I don’t know why I just laughed So, for the heir business, he needs well, you know..a female “worthy” of a Duke. However, it seems that most of the noble ladies are extremely vain so imagine his surprise when his bride Emma knocks on his door in a wedding dress, no less!!

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

Mariana Zapata’s books are like chocolate to me. This book was like one of my favourite milk chocolate. The hero is broody or as I like to say Grumpy McGrumperson but there is of course, a slow burn romance that will melt you but you’ll still love it. Our heroine Vanessa is frustrated at her job and after she quits said job, she finds her boss at her freaking door offering to marry her.

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang

Technically, there was no “marriage” but there was an intent of it. Esme is brought over to the US by Khai, our hero’s mother. She wants Khai to get married and give her grand babies but unfortunately for her and Esme, Khai won’t marry anyone because he doesn’t do love. Diversity rep + unique view of immigration problems + autistic rep + single mother..I could go on and on why you should read this but here’s my full review.

Here are some other recommendations that I think you’ll love:

  5. Adore this post, trope and selection of books! The Bride Test was SO fun and I’m with you there. Let’s just write an entire essay and power point on why everyone should read it!!! (But for real, I love it. So. CUTE. AND. FUN. AND GOOD. I’m sorry for shouting.)

    I need to get my hands on Serpent and Dove. I’m kind of kicking myself in the butt for not having requested an ARC for it because my selective memory decided to FORGET ABOUT IT ENTIRELY until today. I have no idea why either but hey that’s memories for you!

    Great post. I’m definitely checking out some of the titles I’ve yet to read. *grabby hands*
