Romance Books Set in London
If you’re a romantic at heart and love the big smoke, then here are five romance books set in London that you’ll love.
For historical fans, you must read the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn. Not only is it a lot of fun, and set mostly within London of the 1800s, it’s also 100% romantic and there are seven books to enjoy! And that’s just the original series – there’s also her spin-off prequels and her sequels too.
An Avon read that I adored. I read this Christmas novel when I started my job at HarperCollins and it is adorable. Think The Flatshare meets Normal People set in London at Christmas. It’s heartwarming and cute, and you want to bash the heads of the protagonists together out of lovable frustration.
A modern-day classic. Who doesn’t like Bridget Jones? She’s all of our spirit animals combined. A mess, a romantic, a brilliant friend, realistic, funny, and endearing. I could read this book again – and in fact, I have!
Another Avon book – I’m not biased! – that is 100% London foolproof. A romance set on the tube. When a man and a woman get the same tube every day they start to fall in love – but they don’t even talk to each other. Except via the London newspapers rush hour column. Full of pop-culture references, laugh-out-loud moments, and amazing friendships.
And finally, a gorgeous romance following a female character down on her luck returning to her roots. And ex’s! This will-they-wont-they romance about falling for an old flame is everything a romantic person could wish for. And it’s pretty funny too.
