Get Inspired By 6 Reads About Love and Family

by Karen Green

Family life romance is a special genre as it focuses not only on the relationship between the two protagonists, but on how that relationship is formed by and affects the other members of the family. And family in this context can mean many different things, from a long-established unit to a newly discovered association. The most important things that threads through each of these six novels are the connections to each other and the devotion to building—and maintaining—relationships that bloom from a romance into a family.

For a successful but deeply wounded surgeon, allowing both a nurse and her son into his life may be the very thing he needs to finally heal.

As with many family-life romances, there’s a secondary story unfolding as well, leading to a long-awaited reconciliation between a father and son and exploring the many things that honor means when it comes to taking care of the ones you love.

Baby Makes Four by Cynthia Thomason

A secret pregnancy, a new start, an unexpected attraction to the man next door—this certainly isn’t The Brady Bunch, but stories of blended families and parents finding their way to each other after heartbreak can inspire and uplift. Add in the tension of a secret that can’t be kept for long, as well as the drama that can bloom in a small town and the story becomes a family-life saga that is not to be missed.
