Last year, I made a list of some of my most anticipated YA releases out this year and I loved it. Today, I’m here to share part two of that post, featuring all the romance books I’m excited for. Now, this list is just a small look into my most anticipated list because a lot of them don’t have covers yet. So keep that in mind as you scroll through the post. I have them in 3 categories, historical, contemporary and suspense, so there’s something for everyone.
Let’s get started!
This is probably my most anticipated romance book of the year. Most of you probably know how obsessed I am with Lisa Kleypas. When she returned to historical romance last year, I was so happy. When she announced that this book would feature the son of one of my favorite couple of hers, I was beyond ecstatic. I screamed and squealed and was basically, very very vocal. Lisa Kleypas has also shared an excerpt and comments about the book and the heroine here, Pandora, has ADHD. I am very curious to see how that’s going to fit in an era that didn’t really believe in mental illness conditions.
I have to admit, even though I love Sarah MacLean, this series just isn’t my favorite. However, I am eager to pick up The Day of the Duchess because it features a hero who was atrocious to his wife. I am ready for some real groveling on his part. I’m such a sucker for heroes who have to work to gain back their lady loves.
Lenora Bell was one of my favorite historical romance discoveries last year. She writes HR that are smart, sexy and very romantic. I’m excited to see how her third novel goes for me. I already loved Alice from the previous book and her desire to travel, so I know I’m in for a great read.
Honestly, I don’t even need to know what a book is about if it has Tessa Dare’s name on the cover. She has consistently written books that are clever, funny and so passionate. I’m so excited that she’s starting a new series in 2017 and I just can’t wait to get my grabby hands on it. 🙂
Lia Riley writes fantastic contemporary romance books. I especially loved her Brightwater series, so I’m thrilled that she’s returning to a small-town romance with It Happened on Love Street. It sounds like it’s going to be a cute series, and I’m ridiculously excited for it.
Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy are the dream writing-duo! I have adored every book that this duo has written, and I have to say Stay might be one of my most anticipated books from them because Erricson!! This guy really needs his HEA and I can’t wait for him to find it.
If you’re a regular visitor of our blog, you know how much we love Lauren Layne and her Oxford & Stiletto series. I was ready to say goodbye to one of my favorite fictional gang of friends with Someone Like You, but Lauren Layne totally surprised us in a good way when she announced I Knew You Were Trouble. We met Nick and Taylor in Someone Like You and guys, they hate each other! So you know you’re in for some sexy hate-to-love. I cannot wait!
Yes! It’s another Lauren Layne! Actually, she has 7 NEW BOOKS out in 2017, so I’m looking forward to reading them all, but they don’t have covers yet. Anyways, this one sounds like it’s going to be a really fun rom-com type of book with lots of banter, which is exactly what LL is awesome at.
NEED! NEED! NEED! I am in LOVE with this series by Katee Robert and ugh she has been teasing Forbidden Promises on her Facebook group, and waiting has been SO HARD. I am already hopelessly in love with Jude
and ready to have his babies, so I really really need this book in my life.
Reading Midnight Target is going to be so bittersweet because it’s the last book of this addicting series and I am not ready to say bye to my babies. I have no doubt though that Elle Kennedy will deliver with a bang
(and bangs – lol im sorry I don’t know why I’m coming across as so pervy) in this finale. And you know what’s even more awesome? There will be 2 romances! Yes, you read that right! And one of them is a M/M that I have been waiting for since FOREVER.
