The Best Romance Books of July

Posted by Hayley on July 1, 2019
Ready to fall in love this month? We've got some suggestions…

Every month our team takes a look at the new romance books and how early readers are responding to them. We use this information to curate a list of soon-to-be-beloved favorites, from contemporary love stories to tempting paranormal romances.

For July, you can RSVP for Jasmine Guillory's highly anticipated The Wedding Party, plus find love with a 19th-century bad boy, a cop with an agenda, a much younger man, and more. Add what looks good to your Want to Read shelf, and let us know what you're reading and recommending in the comments.
