Not all romances have happy endings. Sometimes it matters more to have a happy middle. Tragedy doesn’t discriminate. But when love can span years and stand up to death itself, we find a power that makes all of life worth living. And a story worth reading.

Our romantic short stories are designed to take our readers away for about a half hour. They are complete stories unto themselves and aren’t related to each other. That means that you can duck into Romantic Shorts’ Reading Room for a quick escape any time, and make it back to your real life before anyone knows you’ve gone.

Welcome. And enjoy!
