10 Fantasy Romance Novels with Love Triangles

10 Fantasy Romance Novels with Love Triangles

I never thought I would be writing a blog post recommending not one, not two, but ten Fantasy romance novels with love triangles. I hated love triangles for a long time because they really just seemed like an excuse for one girl to go swapping spit with multiple hot guys before picking the one we all knew she’d pick after much angst, crying, and needless trauma/drama.

As I encountered more with better writing, actual story purposes for the love triangle, and less black and white romances, I have warmed up to the idea a little. I’m still cynical when it comes to the trope, but as you can see, I’ve managed to round up ten books I enjoyed and hope you will, too.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

This freaking book, y’all. To date, every time I’ve read a book in this series, I’ve read it overnight. Cinderella meets assassins, sorcery, and intrigue with ballgowns and yes, much badassery with the romance.

Fallen by Tenaya Jayne

The Shadows of Regia trilogy is a bit of an urban/high fantasy hybrid, taking place in the magical world of Regia, but incorporating elements and technologies from the neighboring Earth world. While you will 100% be rooting for Maddox, Jaris definitely does his part to keep the stakes high!

Cage of Darkness by Jennifer Anne Davis

This is one of my auto-buy authors and she did not disappoint with this one! Allyssa finds herself pursued by not one, but two princes in this exciting series. Odar has got nothing on Kerdan in my opinion, but check it out for yourself.

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

I feel like this one is slightly cheating. While I think it can be included in Fantasy Romance novels with love triangles, the series basically chronicles the loves and losses of the four main characters as they pretty much suffer constantly. All the same, this series has one of my favorite enemies-to-lovers couples and I loved this book.

Dragonwitch by Anne Elisabeth Stengl

While this is book #5 in the series, I was able to jump right in without ever having heard of the previous books. I absolutely love how this author handles disability, self-esteem, and women’s rights all with a good dose of swords and sorcery. As far as Fantasy Romance novels with love triangles, it’s hard to beat this one. I definitely recommend!

The Hero and the Crown by Robin Mckinley

Classics are classics for a reason. I picked this up with the recommendation of a bookseller at my local used bookstore and I saw pretty fast why it has endured the test of time. If you like horse stories with evil wizards, girls with swords, and ancient magic, check this out!

Jaded Stone by Kelly Walker

Yes, this also says book #5, but it’s a prequel so it doesn’t really matter. If you love Fantasy Romance novels with love triangles to rip your heart out and put it back together before ripping it back out again, behold!

Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazear

I don’t read a lot of Steampunk, but this has fairies in it and the cover was pretty and I couldn’t resist. If you like Bad Boy vs. Good Boy love triangles with airships, petticoats, and evil queens, I think you’ll really like this one.

Betrothal by Mande Matthews

I normally hate Guinevere in Arthurian lore. I have zero sympathy for infidelity, but Mande Matthews has managed to make me empathize with her falling for Lancelot in this retelling. Did I mention it’s free to download?

Warsworn by Elisabeth Wheatley

Why yes I did include a book I wrote. This kicks off the first in a trilogy about Zula, the guard captain in my Warlords of the Sandsea series, as she confronts her lost love and finds a new one! I really wanted to write a more Ancient Africa-flavored Fantasy here. I hope you’ll take a look and tell me what you think!
