A Lady for a Duke
You Made a Fool of Death with Your Beauty
“This is my top read of 2022 so far! I just loved this steamy gorgeously written novel about a young artist finding a second chance at love in the most unconventional of ways, five years after her husband's tragic death. Filled with lush descriptions of tropical gardens, transformative sunsets, and mouth-watering Michelin star concoctions! It's perfect for reading on the beach! Oh! And the best friend banter made me laugh out loud!”Zinna, A Great Good Place for Books
Must Love Books
“Being an editorial assistant seems like a dream job for a book nerd. But low pay, long hours, and mundane tasks lead Nora to rethink her career path. Must Love Books is a fun read that I’ll share with family and friends!”Melissa DeMotte, The Well-Read Moose
London Calling: Book #2
“Return to the world of Boyfriend Material, when Luc and Oliver's friends are getting married and they try to decide whether or not they should do the same. Hall's brilliant sequel has you crying with laughter one page and sucking in a shocked breath the next. Sly humor and pointed social commentary combine into a simply lovely read that allows you to consider different perspectives and see the world around you just a bit differently. With Joe Jameson returning to narrate this novel, it's going to be a real treat!”Cathy, Blue Willow Bookshop

The Princess Trap
An Interracial Romance
Dirty British Romance: Book #1
“When Cherry is sent by her coworkers to scope out the handsome man who’s appeared in their office building, she certainly isn’t expecting a Scandinavian prince (although, she only comes to know this later, and it’s a rude awakening). Whip-smart and gorgeous, Cherry is a fat Black British woman with a tight-knit family and a dead-end job. She immediately captures the attention of Ruben, a bisexual Dane scarred from childhood abuse and a recent betrayal-turned-scandal. Fast forward to an alleyway tryst broken up by paparazzi, and Cherry finds herself in a fake engagement with a non-disclosure agreement. This whirlwind romance has an enemies-to-lovers, forced-proximity feel and features light domination play—these faux fiancés have to fall in love and save the day somehow! The audiobook is a lot of fun with accents galore.”Mary, Raven Book Store
Delilah Green Doesn't Care
If you enjoyed One Last Stop, then you’ll love Delilah Green Doesn't Care.
“Like binging your favorite Gilmore Girls arc, this tender-hearted romance is full of small town charm and a cast of characters you won't want to leave. Delilah Green is a toughened New York photographer who just wants financial stability, and someone in her bed at night. Now, if only she could convince her lonely heart of that. Claire Sutherland owns the bookstore in the same small, Oregon town she grew up in, the same small town she's raising her daughter in. She just wants to convince her best friend that the man she's marrying next month is a literal shit boot. And also if her daughter's father could grow up and communicate, that would be great. And maybe she wants to get laid. When said best friend, Astrid hires her estranged sister, Delilah Green to photograph her wedding, bringing her back to the small town she swore she'd never return to, Delilah and Claire are thrown into a whirlwind of misunderstandings, camping trips, wine nights, photography lessons, society parties, and horrendously-decorated inns. Sweet, a little steamy, and full of lonely people finding that home is a group of people, not a location."”Cassie, Wellesley Books
A Taste of Sage
“This book is a tasty, delicious treat! When you mix delicious food and hate-to-love romance in a book, you instantly have me hooked. Lumi Santana is a chef with the gift of synesthesia: She can feel a person’s emotions just by tasting their cooking. When she opens a restaurant and it fails, she takes a sous chef position at a French restaurant with Julien Dax, a celebrated chef known for his good looks but bad attitude. Lumi can’t stand Julien but tastes his cooking because it looks so irresistible, and when she’s overcome with intense emotions she wonders if she wants more. If you are looking for something that’s fun and tasty and will test your senses, you will enjoy this book.”Deanna Bailey, Story on the Square
I Kissed Shara Wheeler
If you enjoyed One Last Stop, then you’ll love I Kissed Shara Wheeler.
“I had never read romance, queer or otherwise, before Casey McQuiston. MANY of us fell in love with her Red, White, and Royal Blue. Her 3rd book, I Kissed Shara Wheeler, is a young adult novel with more focus on solving a mystery and navigating friendships and school pressures than romance. Oh, there's still romance--it's in the title! I am rooting for all the characters in this novel. They feel real, relatable (I'm Georgia), nuanced. Plus the snappy dialogue and surprising depth that we've come to expect in McQuiston's novels. Natalie Naudus also narrated One Last Stop, so it's fun to hear her again. She does great voices, and a subtle Southern accent when called for.”Gwen, Drury Lane Books
“As beautiful and golden and syrupy-sweet as its namesake, Honey Girl is a romance that explores how we can be desperately lonely even when we're surrounded by people who love us.”Jenny, Page 158 Books
Love & Other Disasters
“It is a treat to encounter a romance where the couple works so well together. Dahlia and London meet for the first time on the set of a cooking show and they speak as if they have known each other for much longer. This queer romance, featuring a nonbinary protagonist, is as hot as chiles and sweet as mangos.”Sofia, Phoenix Books
Get a Life, Chloe Brown
The Brown Sisters: Book #1
“I loved everything about this book. A romantic comedy with a heroine of color who also suffers from fibromyalgia? Sign me up. It's raunchy and hysterical and I loved every minute of it. The one down side was that I couldn't listen to it with my kids in the car, so it took me longer than I would've liked to finish it. ”Anna, Katy Budget Books
You Had Me at Hola
If you enjoyed The Proposal, then you’ll love You Had Me at Hola.
“Damn, this was cute. Definitely a mood-lifter, definitely a light read. Any fan of Jane the Virgin or One Day at a Time (or even an "I enjoyed an episode once" person) would devour this. Filled with representation, strong leading ladies, family drama, secrets, and pure sass, You Had Me at Hola has you entertained from the first page. Honestly, though this book includes some steamy romance, it wasn't the most exciting thing for me. I was really impressed with Daria's world building. She layered scenes of Carmen in Charge (the show Jasmine and Ashton are filming) in throughout and captures the families of both characters very well. Yes, there is sex but there is also a really sweet relationship blooming that involves multiple layers and I was honestly more in a "cute" mindset throughout that a "sexy" one. There was a lot of talk about being a Latinx actress in today's entertainment world and the difficulty with tokenism, racism, and stereotypes. Daria also touched on the multitudes within the Latinx community and how many different countries, languages, culture, and skin colors that covers. Of course, being a romance, there are always bad decisions and stupid people involved. Jasmine and Ashton, though super cute, are no exception. Just as much eyerolling happened on my face as grinning but in a romance, I guess I wouldn't have it any other way!”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys
“The Bodyguard is the perfect comfort read. You’ll feel your shoulders drop in the safety of the world of this book. There’s great chemistry between the characters and it’s a joy to get to know them. I’m already rooting for a movie version.”Tiffany Phillips, Wild Geese Bookshop

Meet Me in the Margins
“Meet Me in the Margins is an adorable and bookish love story. The 'mystery editor' setup is funny and incredibly sweet, and Savannah's motivations as an author seem meta in the best way. Totally clean, this one makes for a great audiobook.”Kaley, Quail Ridge Books
