The lack of a sexual relationship between the hero and heroine will make it easier for readers to focus on the little things that help build these characters’ relationship. It is refreshing to see a book focus more on the idea of romance as opposed to actual romantic overtures. Swept Off Her Feet is also a good example of how opposites not only attract, they also help to make a person stronger and wiser.

Antique specialist Evie Nicholson is obsessed with the memories that come with anything old: furniture, photo frames, teddy bears, etc. So when she gets the opportunity to visit Scotland and appraise the contents of a mansion that has been in a family since the 1800s, she is beyond thrilled. She meets the McAndrews, and their son Robert, a businessman focused on reality, while Evie is stuck in the past. Though the two come from different worlds and different views, they bond over Robert’s family history. (GALLERY, Mar., 352 pp., $15.00)
