in Romance by

God bless Amazon self-publishing. I’ve discovered so many amazing romance novels through the Kindle store—novels that may have started out as indie series, but they quickly rose to fame with teams of dedicated readers and fans. And I totally get the appeal: while traditional romance series tend to jump from isolated couple to couple, these indie series stay with our favorites for several books, creating rich worlds of friends and lovers that stay with you long after you stop reading. Here are my three all-time favorite indie series and why you will love them just as much as I do: The Beautiful Disaster Series by Jamie McGuire The story of Travis Maddox and Abby Abernathy—the first in this family-centered series—is…
