    If You Can't Get Enough Of The Marriage Of Convenience Trope, Then Check Out These 25 Books

    Falling for my fake spouse, you say?! Sign me up!

    One romantic trope that never lets me down is marriage of convenience. If you're unfamiliar with the trope, think Claire and Jamie from Outlander. Think, "Oh, we have to get married in order to achieve our own separate goals." It's when characters have to marry, even though they don't feel anything for each other, or in some cases, they happen to be perfect strangers. The part that always gets me is when they start to fall for each other...but they're already spouses! *Chef's kiss.* Sounds like your cup of tea? Below you'll find swoony romances that specifically contain this tantalizing trope!
