Saved by the Texas Cowboy

Best for fans of this author and of the Harlequin Romantic Suspense titles.

Colton’s Undercover Seduction

With a nonsensical reason for their undercover assignment and plot twists that are obvious from the beginning, reading the latest installment in this series is far more frustrating than it is entertaining.

Baby Surprise in Costa Rica

Part surprise pregnancy and part second-chance romance, this love story will leave readers glowing from the undeniable attraction between the two, as well as the Costa Rican climate in Pembroke’s second “Dream Destinations” book, after Their Icelandic Marriage Reunion.

Pas de Don’t

A sexy, smoldering romance that pulls back the curtain on the world of ballet and deftly portrays the ambition, drive, and passion of those who live and work in it.

The tension between Cassandra and Matheo is palpable and makes for an enticing, steamy read from Merchant (Their Wildest Safari Dream). Readers are sure to devour this in one sitting.

Pride and Protest

Payne’s debut, a modern spin on Pride and Prejudice, is full of life, banter, and a well-developed sense of place; it is unique yet maintains the familiar beats of Austen’s beloved novel. Kacie Rogers and Ron Nery Jr.’s engaging, perfectly timed narration is the best way to enjoy Dorsey and Liza’s tumble into love.

Remember Love

The Reunion

Nineties kids who were obsessed with touchstone teen dramas of the early aughts (The O.C.; Dawson’s Creek) will be delighted with YA novelist Olson’s (This Splintered Silence) adult debut.

This charming book is likely to be popular with fans of romance, historical fiction, and multicultural reimaginings of historical romance, such as TV’s Bridgerton,. Recommended for all public library collections.

Role Playing

Full of funny and heartfelt scenes with fierce yet kind protagonists; readers who love fandoms and geeky romances will adore this one.

The Secret Service of Tea and Treason

Witty, deeply clever, and read-it-like-you-just-robbed-some-pirates fast. Those who have been with the books from the start (the last installment was The League of Gentlewomen Witches) will be gleeful, and those finding them now will immediately want to read back. Flying houses ahoy, buy in bulk.

Liese’s (“Bergman Brothers” series) latest sparkling romance should appeal to fans of Helen Hoang and Tessa Bailey.

An excellent contemporary romance made even better by listening. Narrators Lola James and Sean Crisden bring this steamy and sensually charged story to life, both vividly realizing Alba’s and Theo’s respective accents and the other characters in the story.

A Dash of Salt and Pepper

Despite the mismatch in women’s voices, this smart romance should be a good addition to any romance collection. Suggest to fans of Alexis Hall or Casey McQuiston.

Artfully Yours

Overall, an enjoyable production, recommended to fans of Victorian-era historical fiction with a slow burn or for collections where the author’s previous works are popular.

This audio will appeal to listeners seeking a chaste, charming rom-com that is cute, though not compelling. Fans of Melissa Ferguson and Christina Lauren may enjoy, but this is an optional purchase for most libraries.

The Belle of Belgrave Square

A must-listen for fans of the “Bridgerton” series, fairy-tale spin-offs, and Regency romance.

Something in the Heir

This audio will appeal to listeners seeking heartwarming historical humor with a dash of romance. Recommended for fans of Maya Rodale, Martha Waters, and Elizabeth Everett.

An overall pleasant production, though not a required addition to most collections, especially as the text was originally published several years prior to the audio.

Set Up in the City

Recommend to fans of Gillian Flynn, Louise Penny, and Paula Hawkins.

Billionaire’s Island Temptation

This series launch from Stewart (My Year with the Billionaire) is a recommended purchase for library romance collections.

Off-Limits to the Rebel Prince

Readers will enjoy this highly recommended royal romp from Meier (His Majesty’s Forbidden Fling).

Cold Case Sheriff

Though the mystery of Aimee’s past on its own might be enough to keep readers turning the pages, a tepid romance and the clumsy attempts on the heroine’s life in the present make this a rather lackluster reading experience overall.

Rescued by the Rancher

Readers who enjoy rural settings and suspenseful love stories will be drawn to this story.

Colton’s Body of Proof

An improbable villain and wholly unrealistic investigative techniques make this one unlikely to appeal to any but the most diehard series fans.

It Started with a Vegas Wedding

The CEO and the Single Dad

A heartwarming second-chance romance from Renae (Cinderella’s Second Chance in Paris) that readers will adore.

Crouch (Texas Bodyguard: Luke) does an excellent job of drawing the reader in and keeping the suspense coming. Fans of Iris Johansen and Nora Roberts will be enthralled with this novel.

This latest novel from Marshman (Resolute Justice) does a great job of combining suspense with the romantic excitement of new love.

Catching the Carling Lake Killer

Operation Witness Protection

The latest “Cutter’s Code” title, after Operation Payback, is likely to appeal most to fans of the long-running series.

Her K-9 Protector

Display Shelf | Romance


Love and Lattes

This low-heat contemporary romance from Walsh (Liberty Bay) could be a good fit for readers whose sapphic daydreams include cats, cafés, and low-stress small businesses.

What the Hex

Fans of Clare’s Go Hex Yourself will be happy with this follow-up in which Willem and Penny continue the enemies-to-lovers arc, with their own twist. Hand to readers who love witty banter, the fake-dating trope, and couples who fall hard fast.

The Nanny

Readers who enjoyed Julie Murphy and Sierra Simone’s A Merry Little Meet Cute will adore this positive, upbeat, sex-filled romp.

Happy Place

This sexy and profoundly romantic novel will satisfy fans of best-selling Henry’s (Book Lovers) thrilling trademark mix of witty banter and intensely emotional storylines.

Twelve Hours in Manhattan

Gabriel’s (After Perfect) sophomore novel offers great hope and a grand happy ending.

Romance readers who enjoy single-point-of-view enemies-to-lovers romances will enjoy this solid if predictable debut from Miller. Recommended as a read-alike to The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood.

The Only Game in Town

Bursting with charm and humor, this novel from Waldon (From the Jump) is unputdownable, and readers will clamor for more stories set in Redford.

Will They or Won’t They

Wilder (How To Fake It in Hollywood) has created a gem of a novel with characters who unfold in complex and unexpected ways. The grounded Hollywood story utilizes a perfectly paced slow-burn romance, and at the end there’s a winking nod to the entire journey.

Double-Decker Dreams

Recommended for readers hooked on Josie Silver’s One Day in December and craving another chance-encounter-on-a-London-bus romance.

Wyoming Wild

With lots of danger and intrigue, Eden’s latest will keep readers on the edge of their seats, but constant threats tend to dim the fragile romance between Hawk and Liesl. This historical romance is a stand-alone novel, but fans of Eden’s The Sheriffs of Savage Wells will be happy to see so many familiar faces return to action here.

Sugar, Spice, and Can’t Play Nice

A strikingly vibrant love story for modern dreamers and hopeless romantics. Those who’ve read Sharma’s Love, Chai, and Other Four-Letter Words will be happy to see familiar characters return in this follow-up, but newcomers will also be able to enjoy it as a stand-alone.

Best Men

Karger tells a good and ultimately compelling story, but readers seeking a romantic tale may be disappointed by the focus on the main character’s internal struggles.

To Swoon and To Spar

The fake-haunting plot sounds like gothic romance, but Waters’s latest “Regency Vows” novel (which follows To Marry and To Meddle) is a romantic comedy through and through. Although the chemistry between Jane and Penvale lacks a certain spark, readers will still be pleased that Jane ultimately decides to make room for Penvale in both Trethwick Abbey and her heart.

A Rogue’s Rules for Seduction

Leigh’s series installment will appeal to readers seeking a scintillating historical romance that is engaging and erotic, a heartwarming reunion with more than one happy ending. Recommended for fans of Tessa Dare, Ella Quinn, and Sarah MacLean.

The Dueling Duchess

Readers who enjoyed The Boxing Baroness won’t want to miss Spencer’s sequel. Indeed, anyone who appreciates strong, unconventional heroines—and the Regency-era heroes who know (or at least manage to learn) better than to take them for granted

Mrs. Nash’s Ashes

Adler’s delightful opposites-attract debut is perfect for fans of Tessa Bailey and Christina Lauren; good for all public library collections.

Twelve Months and a Day

Though Young doesn’t stint on the heart-wrenching sadness inherent in the losses her characters face, she gives them enough time and space to discover that there is still room for love and hope (and humor) in their futures.
