These 6 Romance Series Seriously Need Their Own Netflix Show
Wouldn't these romance series make great TV shows?
Romance Series We Want To See On TV
Part of Shonda Rhimes' deal with Netflix, Julia Quinn's Briderton book series will be adapted into a TV series, premiering in sometime in 2020. It caused quite a stir Romancelandia given the fact that a romance series was getting adapted for Netflix.
That led us to think about what romance series we'd like to see adapted for Netflix. It turns out, there are a lot of them. In fact, there are too many for us to list in just one article. It took some doing to narrow it down to just six book series we'd like to see adapted.

1. Seven Shores series by Melissa Brayden
A series about a group of friends living in the same apartment complex finding love in the sun of California? Sign me up! Melissa Brayden's New York-set Soho Loft series is a huge hit, but I'm partial to her Seven Shores series myself. Isabel, Gia, Autumn, and Hadley are also so different and their friendship is incredible to read. I can only imagine it would be just as fun to watch on Netflix!
2. The Ravenels series by Lisa Kleypas
If made into a Netflix TV show, Lisa Kleypas' The Ravenels series would be similar to Bridgerton in that the series would be connected by one-half of each couple coming from the same family. The similarities end there! Kleypas is a master at her craft and a visual adaptation of her beloved Ravenels would be a treat for us all! Look for book six, Chasing Cassandra, in February 2020!
3. The Reluctant Royals by Alyssa Cole
A series about modern day royals? Hell yeah! A series about modern day royals based on the novels by Alyssa Cole. Pure gold! We would love a Netflix series based on Cole's Reluctant Royals. The series has ended with three books and two novellas, but while we cross our fingers and pray for our dream of a TV adaptation to become reality, Cole as a follow-up series coming out soon, beginning with How to Catch a Queen.
4. To Serve and Seduce by Deborah Fletcher Mello
If you think the name To Serve and Seduce sounds like a hot series in which a couple solves some sort of mystery, then you'd be correct! Deborah Fletcher Mello's action pact series would be incredible if translated to a visual medium and Netflix would likely do it justice. One season per book filled with sexual tension? Yes please!
5. Dreamers by Adriana Herrera
Adriana Herrera's Dreamers series holds a special place in my heart. I didn't read them until the first three books were out, but when I finally did, I plowed through them. Four friends who grew up together navigate adulthood and finding love while maintaining a strong friendship with each other. Dreamers would make an incredible contemporary series about Latinx immigrants. Don't miss American Sweethearts which will be out in March 2020!
6. The Tang Dynasty by Jeannie Lin
When folks think of historical romance, they tend to think of books set in the Georgian or Edwardian periods. That's why Jeannie Lin's The Tang Dynasty series would be a fantastic adaptation. Not only would it get away from white European historical romance, but Jeannie Lin is an amazing storyteller. An own voices historical romance series is just what the world needs!
