Over on Twitter, I made a little Valentines-day-adjacent list of my favorite ways that romance characters have expressed romantic love without saying “I love you.” For the sake of having them all in one place (and for the buy links, because I highly recommend every last one of these books), here they are, all in one place 🙂

Legit tearing up. The declaration that’s not a declaration is the reason I read romance.

For my money, Will’s declaration in KJ Charles’s “Subtle Blood” is the all-time winner: “What it comes down to is … I don’t like it when you aren’t there. It pisses me off; I think it always will. Don’t piss me off?”
Such a good one!
