7 Fictional Families of Romance You’ll Want To Be a Part Of

Do you know what I love more than falling in love with one character when I’m reading romance novels? Falling in love with their whole family. A series featuring multiple siblings is almost always an automatic buy for me. In some of my favorites, it allows me to even be a part of a larger storyline that can I see evolve as each family member falls in love. Here are seven fiction families in romance you’ll love to be a part of, where love and loyalty is always the priority.

The Cole family by Rochelle Alers

Follow the fictional Cole family, quietly the wealthiest African American family in the United States. Travel to Mexico, Cuba, Florida, and many places in between and be whisked away as each member of this illustrious family meet their match. Legacy is important and their past isn’t pretty but they don’t run from it. Mistakes are made but bonds are solidified.

The Valentine Brothers by Stephanie Nicole Norris

The Valentine Brothers are well known in Chicago. These handsome septuplets are insanely rich, devastatingly handsome, and, while the nature of their careers keeps them in the spotlight, very private. While all of the brothers aren’t necessarily looking for love, they aren’t fools—and when they know, they know. If you are a fan of instalove, this series (and family) is definitely one you’ll love.
