Epic Fantasy with Romance Elements

These books fulfill the requirements of the Epic Fantasy genre but only some of the requirements of the Romance genre. These books would be shelved in SFF. An Epic Fantasy with Romance Elements is set in a non-Earth fantasy world featuring magic and/or fantastical creatures. It features a romantic couple, but the romance may be less prominent than some of the other story elements, and the book will not necessarily end in a “happily ever after.”
