Romance Book Club - Well Traveled
This is an online event - scroll down for login info!
Our Romance Book Club is a monthly book club focused on contemporary, historical, and LGBTQ+ adult romances. Romance is a genre that gets a bad rep, and we want to help change that. There's so much fun writing happening in Romance today, and we think everyone deserves to see themselves in a steamy romcom novel.
"The Renaissance Faire is on the move, and Lulu and Dex are happily along for the ride, in the next utterly charming rom-com from Jen DeLuca. A high-powered attorney from a success-oriented family, Louisa "Lulu" Malone lives to work, and everything seems to be going right, until the day she realizes it's all wrong. Lulu's cousin Mitch introduced her to the world of Ren Faires, and when she spies one at a time when she needs an escape, she leaps into the welcoming environment of turkey legs, taverns, and tarot readers. The only drawback? Dex MacLean: a guitarist with a killer smile, the Casanova of the Faire . . . and her traveling companion for the summer. Dex has never had to work for much in his life, and why should he? Touring with his brothers as The Dueling Kilts is going great, and he always finds a woman at every Faire. But when Lulu proves indifferent to his many plaid charms and a shake-up threatens the fate of the band, Dex must confront his future. Forced to spend days and nights together on the road, Lulu's interest in the kilted bad boy grows as he shows her a side of himself no one else has seen. The stresses of her old lifestyle fade away as she learns to trust her intuition and follow her heart instead of her head. But when her time on the road is over, will Lulu go with her gut, or are she and Dex destined for separate paths?"
" Well Traveled is a true comfort read. Jen DeLuca is at the top of her game with this delightfully charming romance that will wrap cosily around your heart and warm it through. Lovable characters and the marvellously rendered world of the Renaissance Fair make the novel feel so real, and so very enjoyable. I recommend it highly."-- India Holton, national bestselling author of The League of Gentlewomen Witches
"DeLuca has a steady hand with this duo's slow-burning chemistry, making their connection feel entirely earned. Fans and new readers alike will be drawn in."-- Publishers Weekly
"Lulu may live to work, but she didn't have to work for me to love her. Jen DeLuca has done it again, crafting another heartfelt rom-com that will make the dreamers in all of us squeal with delight!"-- Kosoko Jackson, author of I'm So Not Over You
