22 Great Romance Books Coming This Spring

Posted on March 23, 2017 by

What better way to celebrate spring than with a new, budding romance? We’ve rounded up some of the biggest romance novels coming out this season, including contemporary romances from bestselling authors like Debbie Macomber and Nora Roberts, paranormal novels by J. R. Ward and Kerrelyn Sparks, and more! Publishers’ descriptions included below.

 

If Not for You by Debbie Macomber

If Not for You by Debbie Macomber

New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber has written an emotionally stirring novel that shows how sometimes a choice can seem wrong even though it’s absolutely right.

If not for her loving but controlling parents, Beth Prudhomme might never have taken charge of her life and moved from her native Chicago to Portland, Oregon, where she’s reconnected with her spirited Aunt Sunshine and found a job as a high school music teacher. If not for her friend Nichole, Beth would never have met Sam Carney, although first impressions have left Beth with serious doubts. Sam is everything Beth is not — and her parents’ worst nightmare: a tattooed auto mechanic who’s rough around the edges. Reserved and smart as a whip, Beth isn’t exactly Sam’s usual beer-drinking, pool-playing type of woman, either.

But if not for an awkward setup one evening, Beth might never have left early and been involved in a car crash. And if not for Sam — who witnessed the terrifying ordeal, rushed to her aid, and stayed with her until help arrived — Beth might have been all alone, or worse. Yet as events play out, Sam feels compelled to check on Beth almost daily at the hospital — even bringing his guitar to play songs to lift her spirits. Soon their unlikely friendship evolves into an intense attraction that surprises them both.

Before long, Beth’s strong-willed mother, Ellie, blows into town spouting harsh opinions, especially about Sam, and reopening old wounds with Sunshine. When shocking secrets from Sam’s past are revealed, Beth struggles to reconcile her feelings. But when Beth goes a step too far, she risks losing the man and the life she’s come to love.

I’m at your service.

Like the custom cars I build with class and sophistication, that’s exactly how I treat a woman, even if it’s for one night only. But then a wildly sexy brunette appears in my life and throws a wrench in all my plans.

She’s fiery, she’s talented, she’s gorgeous, and I’d really like to know what makes her engine hum.

But she’s also my biggest rival, and now we’re forced to work together on the most important build of my career. Every day I spend with her, we set new records for trading barbs and dirty innuendos, and every evening I’m left wondering if she wants to kick me in the lug nuts or beg me to give her a good, hard fuel injection. Until one night that question is answered on the hood of a sports car when she calls out my name three times. And we can’t seem to put on the brakes.

If sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea, how much more dangerous would it be to fall in love with her?

Dating-ish by Penny Reid

Dating-ish by Penny Reid
