Would I Lie to the Duke

A duke who has no problem taking a more submissive role and an intelligent woman determined not to fail make an exquisite match in this second spicy, delectable tale in Leigh’s “Union of Rakes” series (My Fake Rake). Regency fans will savor and want more.

Brass Carriages and Glass Hearts

With this new series launch, Allen (The Lady in the Coppergate Tower) creates an alternate 19th-century London with just enough steampunk elements (automatons, airships) to spice things up, and what could have been another stale version of a familiar fairy tale becomes a fresh retelling with plenty of danger and romance. An excellent choice for romance readers trying steampunk for the first time.
PREMIUM

Not My Romeo

The crackling chemistry between the two leads is strong, and though numerous side conflicts threaten to overwhelm the main romance and leave the plot feeling slightly overstuffed, this new series launch from Madden-Mills (I Bet You) will be welcomed by fans of sports romances.

Ties That Tether

Igharo’s debut beautifully depicts the tension between self-determination and the desire to live up to family expectations. Favorite tropes such as a secret baby and a love triangle are reimagined through clever and heart-warming storytelling. Readers will be rooting for Azere from the very first page. [See “A Full Fall,” p. 16 ff.]
PREMIUM

Simmer Down

Smith’s (Faker) cute, breezy, multicultural romance set in paradise is a solid purchase where contemporary romances are popular.
PREMIUM

No Offense

Cabot returns to the “Little Bridge Island” series with another engaging read (after No Judgment). Rom-com fans looking to extend the beach-reading season should find this their next go-to read.
PREMIUM

The Jackal

The latest expansion of Ward’s elaborate world builds on its own mythology while introducing new characters and revisiting old favorites. A must-read for fans of this long-running series, and an accessible jumping-on point for newcomers.
PREMIUM

Stick the Landing

McMurray’s return to the “Elite Athletes” series (after Here Comes the Flood) is a welcome one, with a sweet and sexy love story nestled among a solid sports tale. Although it would’ve paired perfectly with the Beijing Games, this remains a great book for summer and will have staying power in the buildup to the 2021 Olympic Games.
PREMIUM

Hairpin Curves

RITA award–winning author Winters (Playing Naughty) puts the focus on female friendships—and female love—in this feel-good, F/F road-trip romance that’s not too heavy and just the right amount of fun to recommend for a fun holiday or beach read.
