The Best Romance Books of December

Posted by Cybil on December 4, 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, from contemporary love stories to historical hookups to thrilling paranormal romances.

New in December: Alexa Martin delivers a story of love and professional athletes in Blitzed. Kelsey Quick explores forbidden supernatural romance in A Violet Fire. And debut novelist Rachel Winters brings us the story of a Hollywood screenwriter with a slightly indecent proposal in Would Like to Meet.

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