Welcome to Romancing the Weekend!
On most Thursdays, I present books that fit a particular trope, or theme for your browsing pleasure.
If you find a book that sounds like your kind of book, just click the title to be taken to the book’s webpage. You can read more about it and purchase it if you wish.
My hope is that you’ll find an author you’ve not read before or a favorite author with a book you haven’t seen before.
This week the spotlight shines on…
SINGLE PARENT ROMANCE.
The name of the theme exactly defines this kind of romance novel or short story. A single parent finds love—whether he or she is looking for it or not!
With single parenthood comes a bevy of conflict: the ex’s relationship with the other parent, the child’s relationship with the other parent, emotional baggage from the broken relationship, the fear of getting hurt again, the longing for love, and what the heck to do with the desire for the other person that just won’t be ignored.
Nothing is easy for the single parent. Along with the personal emotional conflict of a broken relationship, there’s the problems associated with a new love relationship.

Everyone is encouraging Hunter to do the same, but will Lisa think he’s just trying to find a mother for his child? Maybe Allie is wiser than the adults in her life. Will their sundaes on Sunday lead to true love every day of the week?
