The Best Romance Books of February

Posted by Cybil on February 3, 2020
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 February: Lisa Kleypas returns with the continuing adventures of Lady Cassandra Ravenel. Marie Harte brings us a new tale of an ambitious waitress and a stalwart German mechanic. And Owen Nicholls spins a story that draws from the best rom-coms and romantic dramas of the silver screen. Also: a kissing game, a troublesome best man, and a rakish vicar. 

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 Postscript doesn't sound anything like a romance! Neither does Love, Unscripted. They both sound like general fiction that discusses relationships.

Calista Frye The Catch by L. H Mae is also a fantastic read!

Angel That link for debut queer romance doesn't seem to be for the right article.
