#RomBkLove Week 4: Journey. Traveling can make or break a relationship. What are the most memorable character journeys you have read? What are your favorite road-trip/travel romances?
Summer Vacation begins this week for me. Growing up almost all our vacations were road-trips of some sort or another. We would fly up to NYC, rent a car and sight-seeing up and down the East Coast. These vacation adventures became fodder for family inside-jokes, which we still love to retell to each other, from the endless evening spent looking for an affordable hotel in Montreal to how we lost our dad's new hat somewhere between Boston and Niagara Falls and he was so mad he didn't talk to us for the rest of the day. Traveling together can make or break a relationship. That particular trip was the first one where we kids noticed that my parents marriage was falling apart. It was second-to-last family vacation and their last as a married couple. But in Romance trips often throw couples together.
I love road-trip/travel romances so much that I keep a shelf of them Goodreads.
Two of my favorites are Joanna Bourne's The Forbidden Rose and Laura Kinsale's The Prince of Midnight. In both these tales, danger stalk the couples as they get to know each other, and slowly see behind each other's masks while on the road together.
What are your favorites?
