When you think of New York, you think of pizza, chopped cheese sandwiches and crowded subways. But, what about love? In French Kissing in New York, the only thing on Margot's mind is her former love Zach, whom she met in Paris a year ago. As fate would have it, Margot is a chef living in Manhattan and is determined to reconnect with him with the help of a co-worker, who is her secret admirer. 

They say that opposites attract and no one knows this more than Delilah and Reggie, two teens who couldn't be any more different. In Reggie and Delilah's Year of Falling, Reggie is a master at Dungeons & Dragons, while Delilah is a shy frontwoman for a punk band. They met on New Year's Eve and have crossed paths ever since. You can't fight fate or love. 

In I Loved You in Another Life, we learn that love can be found in a hopeless place. Evan and Shosh have experienced their own tragedies with his mother's cancer diagnosis and her sister's death in a car accident. Together they learn the power of grief, love and how some souls are meant to be. 

Does true love have a straight path? That's a hard question to answer, especially for the title characters in the romantic comedy Gwen & Art Are Not in Love. In medieval England, the bickering duo are to be married but here's the twist: they're both gay. With the political climate shifting, Gwen and Art must work together to find out who can trust before their secrets are exposed. 

Falling in love is a beautiful thing. For Tooru Naruse, it can be quite a challenge. The polarizing romance novel Even If These Tears Disappear Tonight tells of Tooru's attraction to Izumi, who accepts under the condition he cannot fall in love with her. Why is this the case? It's because Izumi can't forget her first love from high school.
