Love and Laughs
Having long been a fan of the screwball comedy, I enjoy finding romance novels that feature many of the same laugh-out-loud characteristics. You'll find the delightfully familiar kooky protagonists with love/hate issues, the gleefully eccentric secondary characters, the compounding misunderstandings, and the physical pratfalls, all tied together with sharp dialogue. If you would like to try some laughs with your romance, why not try one of the titles below?
Lady Be Good by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
