STORY BEHIND THE STORE

“We wanted to provide a physical gathering place for the passionate community of romance readers. We love introducing people to the genre we love and the power of an HEA (happily ever after). We’ve been open for 5 years, and at the time there wasn't a single romance bookstore in the US!”
