Has this ever happening to you? You are going to get married but you don’t and dark it all you have this Honeymoon plans and tickets. What to do?
This happens a lot in Romanceland. And you know what you do? You go on that damn Honeymoon by Yourself! Or bring a friend. Whatever.
Here are some fun Romance Novels with this theme! My lists are never in any particular order.
1. A Garden In The Rain by Lynn Kurland
After her fiance, Bentley Douglas Taylor III, dumps her, then fires her, Madelyn Phillips attempts to salvage what she can from the wreckage of her life by going ahead with her planned trip to Scotland sans Bentley, only to find the insufferable twit waiting for her there in a misbegotten attempt to convince her to return to him. While trying to ditch Bentley, Madelyn visits Culloden and bumps into Patrick MacLeod, the lethally handsome Scotsman who earlier almost ran her off the road. At that moment, Madelyn intuitively realizes that Patrick is her one true love, but she hesitates to communicate this inexplicable idea to him since she’s puzzled by it herself. Even if Madelyn reawakens a long dormant sense of desire in him, Patrick knows telling her the truth about who he really is will destroy any chance of a relationship. Of course, neither one factors in what a little bit of magic can do!
2. Bring It On by Kira Sinclair
Graphic designer Lena fled her ruined wedding with her best friend, filmmaker Colt.
But she wasn’t expecting the “honeymoon” to be a week-long photo shoot. As the sets become more intimate, Lena and Colt’s libidos start slipping. They can fake it…but when the week is over, will they be able to forget it?
3. Get A Clue by Jill Shalvis
And You Think You’ve Had A Bad Day
City girl Breanne Mooreland gets left at the altar, takes the flight from hell to her honeymoon–alone–loses her luggage, and ends up snowed in at a Sierra mountains lodge run by the kookiest staff this side of the Addams Family. Oh, and there’s a gorgeous naked man taking a shower in her suite who says he isn’t going anywhere. That’s just the first 24 hours. . .
Burned-out vice cop Cooper Scott is in serious need of this vacation, and he’s not about to give up the only available room because an upset–okay, make that insane–woman is having a conniption fit. They’ll just have to make the best of it–her side of the bed versus his. But when Cooper wakes up kissing the long, leggy Breanne, he wants to show her exactly what the honeymoon suite is intended for. But that will have to wait, because a screaming Breanne has just stumbled on a very dead body. So much for vacation. . .

5. Everything But A Bride by Holly Jacobs
teary-eyed bride in a long, white getup and veil was on Luke O’Dell’s property—with no husband in sight. Uh-oh! Runaway bride on her honeymoon alone at his Lazy O Dude Ranch! Luke knew too well what happened when he comforted a sobbing woman, and no way was sweet Josie Randall getting anywhere near his strong shoulders….
Josie’s two-timing groom-not-to be had done her a huge favor. She’d never even imagined she could love a man so much, until she’d looked into Luke’s dark brown eyes and saw forever. But how was a woman to convince six feet, two inches of nonmarrying man that she was the woman he didn’t even know he was waiting for?
7. Love on the Boardwalk by Christi Barth
Atlantic City is the perfect place for detective Bradley Hudson to nurse his broken heart. A week of beer and strippers is sure to erase his former fiancée from his memory for good. What he didn’t count on was running into a sassy redhead from his past. Maybe a rebound romp is an even better plan…
Trina Trimble, private eye in training, is thrilled to be reunited with the hottie she almost hooked up with last summer. She’s undercover on her first solo case, but there’s always time to lock lips with a sexy cop. Besides, a fun fling with Brad doesn’t have to last beyond his week in town.
Brad and Trina are supposed to be just flirting, not forging a new forever. Brad’s still healing, and although Trina changes careers the way other women change shoes, she has finally found her calling in her new life of disguises and stakeouts. But when an irresistible job offer threatens to lure her away, Brad will need to decide to let her go or bet it all on love and risk his heart again.
8. The Unexpected Honeymoon by Barbara Wallace
A holiday to remember…

The chemistry is instant—and their similarities run deep. Could it be that the two loneliest hearts on the island have found love…in the most unexpected of places?
