Wilted Roses

So here are three alternatives to comfort you this Feb 14. Each novel is just the right length to read in a single night with a box of drugstore-bought chocolates.

Whether or not their heroes succeed romantically, they will make you embrace the idea of going at it alone on a day when we feel nothing but pressure to pair up.
