For the month of September, Amazon Prime has much to offer if you’re a fan of romance. From romantic period dramas to romantic comedies, romantic dramas, and even a couple of TV shows with a bit of romance on the side!
So, let’s take a look at my romantic recommendations below for Amazon Prime September 2018, each with the official description, rating, and the Amazon Prime release date. Titles are listed in alphabetical order. At the bottom of the list, I’ve also included romances that were recently and quietly added to Amazon Prime without any announcement. And then other bonus movies/shows coming soon that are worth checking out.
