Genres: Historical Romance
Martha Waters recommends
The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels (2021)
(Dangerous Damsels, book 1)
India Holton
"The most charming, clever, and laugh-out-loud funny book I've read all year—it is impossible to read The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels and not fall in love with its lady pirates, flying houses, and swoon-worthy romance. India Holton's utterly delightful debut is pure joy from start to finish."
A Caribbean Heiress in Paris (2022)
(Las Leonas, book 1)
Adriana Herrera
"A Caribbean Heiress in Paris is a breath of fresh air featuring everything I love about historical romance."
Lucie Yi Is Not A Romantic (2022)
Lauren Ho
"Lucie Yi Is Not a Romantic is smart, fresh, and incredibly funny. Lauren Ho's voice is so distinct and witty, and she nails the impressive balancing act of writing a book that feels light and effortless while still offering a thoughtful look at friendship, family, and the sometimes-winding path to finding love."
Luck and Last Resorts (2022)
Sarah Grunder Ruiz
"Luck and Last Resorts hits every beat of a second-chance romance to perfection. Its hero and heroine are complicated and emotionally messy and so carefully drawn that you finish the book feeling as though you've just spent several hours in the company of real people whose lives and personal histories are as complex as your own. Both funny and deeply emotional, this is a lovely, utterly memorable romance."
Just Like Magic (2022)
Sarah Hogle
"I would pay so much money for all Christmas content to be as gleefully unhinged as this. I cannot remember the last time a book made me literally laugh out loud this much."
