The Best Romance Books of November

Posted by Cybil on November 1, 2019

Some people love books. Some people fall in love. And some people fall in love with books about falling in love. 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.

New in November: Andie J. Christopher adds a twist to the story of modern love via a phone app. Jennifer Ryan tells the tale of a long, lean rancher and the accountant who loves him. And Penny Reid tells of an elaborate matchmaking scheme in the romantic realms of Italy. Then there's the motorcycle guy and the brush with death. And the pen pal letters that get a little out of hand. Good times.

Add what catches your fancy to your Want to Read shelf, and let us know what you're reading and recommending in the comments.

kittykat AKA Ms. Tortitude I want to finally pop my Penny Reid cherry now that the final Beard book is out, and am really looking forward to The Bromance Book Club and Get a Life, Chloe Brown (love Talia Hibbert).

Am surprised not to see The Rebel King (All The King's Men Duet, #2) by Kennedy Ryan on this list given the amazing reaction to The Kingmaker (All The King's Men Duet, #1) by Kennedy Ryan , the first in the duet. It's def on my list so that I can pop my KR cherry too!

Maybe through your library? Otherwise, it may arrive on KU eventually. It seems pretty popular, so it may be quite a wait, though.

Added: do you have Prime? Its free with that!
