Bride
by Ali Hazelwood

Paranormal, Marriage of Convenience Romance
Releasing February 6, 2024

Misery Lark, the only daughter of the most powerful Vampyre councilman, has been called upon to uphold a historic peacekeeping alliance between the Vampyres and their mortal enemies, the Weres, and she sees little choice but to surrender herself in the exchange—again. She may be putting herself in danger, agreeing to marry the Were Alpha, Lowe Moreland, but she has reasons for doing so that have nothing to do with politics or alliances.

Why It’s a Must Read: Just when I think Ali Hazelwood can’t give me yet another amazing book, she dives into paranormal romance and gives me THIS! If you love romance books with the best characters that carry a story with suspense and the sweetest of slow burn romances, then you have to pick this up. It’s already earned a place on my best romance novels of 2024 list.

A Love Song for Ricki Wilde
by Tia Williams

Contemporary Romance

Ricki Wilde has never fit in with her socialite family so she jumps at the chance for a new beginning in Harlem and the realization of her dream to open a flower shop. Then one evening in February, Ricki encounters a handsome, deeply mysterious stranger who knocks her world off balance in the most unexpected way.  

Why It’s a Must Read: Williams blew me away with Seven Days in June so I’m anxiously awaiting this new release that is set against the backdrop of modern Harlem Renaissance where two passionate artists are drawn to the opportunity of New York and its romance.

Fangirl Down is one of the most anticipated new romance book releases coming February 2024. See the entire book list of must-read releases on She Reads Romance Books.

Fangirl Down
by Tessa Bailey

Sports Romance

Wells Whitaker was once golf’s hottest rising star, but his career has taken a nosedive leaving him with only one fan who’s always believed in him. Yet when Wells quits in a blaze of glory, his fangirl finally goes home leaving him with nothing. Determined to make things right, Wells shows up at Josephine’s door with a wild proposal: be his new caddy, help him turn his game around, and split the prize money.

Why It’s a Must Read: Tessa Bailey is my go-to author whenever I’m in the mood for a fun and spicy romcom, but she blew me away with this sports romance that I could not put down! I never thought that I would fall for a professional golfer but she made me do it!! I just loved everything about this opposites attract romance that has the BEST characters. It too is already on my list of best romance novels of 2024 list.

Fish out of Water is one of the most anticipated new romance book releases coming February 2024. See the entire book list of must-read releases on She Reads Romance Books.

Fish Out of Water
by Katie Ruggle

Forced Proximity Romance
Releasing February 13, 2024

When Dahlia Weathersby’s sister disappears on what should have been a simple day hike, Dahlia immediately heads deep into the Colorado Rockies to find her. Knowing she’ll never survive the mountains alone, she convinces the local hermit―adorably grouchy survival expert Winston Dane―to be her guide. All it takes is a good helping of Dahlia’s charm…and just the teeniest bit of blackmail…before she’s got all six-foot-something of him wrapped around her finger. 

With everything the wilderness has to throw at them, it’ll take more than charm and some city girl ingenuity to make this trek anything but a disaster waiting to happen…and an adventure she’ll never forget.

Why It’s a Must Read: This book was a cute read because the main characters were so much fun. Most of the book is these two hiking out into the wilderness in the middle of winter with only Dahlia‘s constant chatter to keep them company, besides the threat of bears and blizzard snowstorms. You get a fun, forced proximity, snowed in romance with complete opposites who have the best banter. There’s also an element of suspense that culminates in a crazy way. It was a really fun read!

Check out my book review of Fish Out of Water.

At First Spite is one of the most anticipated new romance book releases coming February 2024. See the entire book list of must-read releases on She Reads Romance Books.

At First Spite
by Olivia Dade

Enemies to Lovers Romance
Releasing February 13, 2024


When Athena Greydon’s fiancé ends their engagement, she has no choice but to move into the Spite House she recklessly bought him as a wedding gift. This is a problem because the house is only ten feet wide and attached to not only her ex’s home but also her ex’s brother’s house.

Athena despises Dr. Matthew Vine the Freaking Third because he convinced his younger brother to leave her so she intends to use her proximity to have a little fun and drive the man mad. Only in trying to get payback she may be falling for the jerk.

Why It’s a Must Read: This book honestly had me at Athena’s crazy antics that include playing erotic audiobooks at top volume with her windows open to annoy Matthew. I am so for it! I love that this neighbors to lovers romance has an enemies to lovers twist plus the added element of falling for her ex’s brother. Can you follow all of those tropes? I really hope this one delivers!

Simply the Best is one of the most anticipated new romance book releases coming February 2024. See the entire book list of must-read releases on She Reads Romance Books.

Simply the Best
by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Sports Romance
Releasing February 13, 2024

Brett Rivers is the hottest sports agent in the business and he never should have met Rory Garrett, the failed chocolatier and sister to his most important client, her football brother. And they both absolutely, positively should never have had to deal with the consequences of one stupid, drunken night, one disastrous lie, one career in jeopardy, one missing football player, and a very deceased body.

Why It’s a Must Read:  I was so completely surprised and of course super excited that Susan Elizabeth Phillips is returning to her beloved Chicago Stars series and giving us book 10 which seems to mix in a bit of mystery this time! I adore her writing and witty dialogue and cannot wait to see what she has in store for these two opposites. Check it out if you love football romances or are a big SEP fan!

Not Your Crush's Cauldron is one of the most anticipated new romance book releases coming February 2024. See the entire book list of must-read releases on She Reads Romance Books.

Not Your Crush’s Cauldron
by April Asher

Friends to Lovers Witch Romance
Releasing February 13, 2024

Olive Maxwell much prefers teaching about the Supernatural world to taking part in it and leaves the magical shenanigans to her two sisters. After assigning her college students a project to nudge them outside their comfort zones, Olive realizes she’s never once stepped out of her own and her first step is to move in with her longtime crush and friend, Baxter.

Bax Donovan, Guardian Angel not-so-extraordinaire, has been given one last chance to keep his Guardian wings—protect Olive as she checks things off her Dare I Docket list, but doing so puts him at risk of shattering the only Guardian Angel code of conduct rule he’s yet to break: Don’t fall in love with your Assignment.

Why It’s a Must Read: I think it’s high time that I check out an Asher book in 2024 because I love witch romance books and Olive is already someone I’m so in love with given her desire to shake things up a bit in her life. I’m also hoping this book has the sweetest slow burn that builds to a fire between these two friends.

Heartless Hunter is one of the most anticipated new romance book releases coming February 2024. See the entire book list of must-read releases on She Reads Romance Books.

Heartless Hunter
by Kristen Ciccarelli

Enemies to Lovers Fantasy Romance
Releasing February 20, 2023

In the aftermath of a devastating revolution, witches have been diminished from powerful rulers to outcasts ruthlessly hunted due to their waning magic, and Rune must hide what she is. Now she spends her days pretending to be a vapid socialite and her nights as the Crimson Moth, a witch vigilante who rescues her kind from being purged.

When a rescue goes wrong, she decides to throw the witch hunters off her scent and gain the intel she desperately needs by courting the handsome Gideon Sharpe – a notorious and unforgiving witch hunter loyal to the revolution – who she can’t help but find herself falling for.

Why It’s a Must Read: I’m already curious to know which new romance book in 2024 is going to become the next big fantasy romance and Ciccarelli’s witch hunter romance has the chance to be it. I loved how Rune and Gideon both tried to fight their growing feelings for one another when she was a witch and he was a witch hunter. This book definitely set the stage for an engaging series!

Check out my book review of Heartless Hunter.

Visions of Flesh and Blood is one of the most anticipated new romance book releases coming February 2024. See the entire book list of must-read releases on She Reads Romance Books.

Visions of Flesh and Blood
by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series Companion Guide
Releasing February 20, 2024

This is a comprehensive companion guide for background, history, reader-favorite information, art, and reference materials for fans of the From Blood and Ash series as well as the Flesh and Fire series. Combined with original short stories and scenes from some of the world’s most beloved characters, as well as never-before-seen visual enticements, it’s a treat for the senses.

Told from the point of view of Miss Willa herself, the compendium acts like research material but reads like a journal and cache of personal notes, allowing the reader to revisit the characters and history they so love yet view things in a different way.

Why It’s a Must Read: If Armentrout is willing to give me enen MORE for the From Blood and Ash series and Flesh and Fire series then I’m all for it. I especially love that it has new short stories and is told from Miss Willa’s point of view. With over 600 pages, this compendium is sure to enrich both of the fantasy series that have stolen my heart.

A Fate Inked in Blood is one of the most anticipated new romance book releases coming February 2024. See the entire book list of must-read releases on She Reads Romance Books.

A Fate Inked in Blood
by Danielle L. Jensen

Forbidden Fantasy Romance
Releasing February 27, 2024


Bound in an unwanted marriage, Freya’s life is upended when her husband betrays her to the region’s jarl, landing her in a fight against his son, Bjorn. To survive, Freya must reveal her deepest secret: she is a shield maiden with magic capable of repelling any attack.

Believing he’s destined to rule Skaland as king, the fanatical jarl binds Freya with a blood oath and orders Bjorn to protect her from their enemies. Desperate to prove her strength, Freya must train to fight and learn to control her magic, but her greatest test may be resisting her forbidden attraction to Bjorn.

Why It’s a Must Read: This is definitely one of the most anticipated romance books of 2024 for fans of Jensen’s earlier work, The Bridge Kingdom series, who are ready to dive into a new series from the fantasy writer. I love that this is a Norse-inspired fantasy romance with a strong heroine, a fiery hero and a forbidden attraction. Bring it!
