Happy New Month! This month I really want to start reading again. The first two months were not great reading months, to be honest. But I feel like there are quite a few excellent romance book releases this March and I can’t wait to make time for them and read them. This is just a small collection of romance book releases of this month, but I am looking forward to reading these books.
Romance book releases March
The love wager – Lynn Painter
Two people make a wager on who can find love first, not realizing what they should be betting on is each other, in this new romantic comedy by Lynn Painter, New York Times bestselling author of Mr Wrong Number. Hallie Piper is turning over a new leaf. After belly-crawling out of a hotel room (hello, rock bottom), she decides it’s time to become a full-on adult. She gets a new apartment, a new haircut, and a new wardrobe, but when she logs onto the dating app that she has determined will find her new love, she sees none other than Jack, the guy whose room she snuck out of. After agreeing they are absolutely not interested in each other, Jack and Hallie realize they’re each other’s perfect wing-person in their searches for The One. They text each other about their dates, often scheduling them at the same restaurant so that if things don’t go well, the two of them can get tacos afterwards. Spoiler: they get a lot of tacos together. | Buy on Amazon
infamous – Lex Croucher
Twenty-two-year-old aspiring writer Edith (“Eddie”) Miller and her best friend Rose have always done everything together—from climbing trees and sneaking bottles of wine, to extensive kissing practice. But Rose has started talking about marriage, and Eddie is horrified. Why can’t they continue as they always have?
Then Eddie meets charming, renowned poet Nash Nicholson––a rival of Lord Byron, if he does say so himself––and he welcomes her into his world of eccentric artists and boundary-breaking visionaries. When Eddie receives an invitation to Nash’s crumbling Gothic estate in the countryside, promising inspiration (and time to finish her novel, a long-held dream), she eagerly agrees. But the pure hedonism and debauchery that ensues aren’t exactly what she had in mind, and Eddie soon finds herself torn between her complicated feelings for Rose and her equally complicated dynamic with Nash, whose increasingly bad behaviour doesn’t match up to her vision for her literary hero. | Buy on Amazon

Puffin bay – Annie Dyer
Heartbreak led me to Puffin Bay, searching for peace in a small, coastal town. Four years later, my bar is thriving and my next business is just what the town needs.
It doesn’t need Roman Tominey. Arrogant, city-boy, suit-wearing grump – he knows how to push every one of my buttons, and after an evening of bad decisions, he knows how to push that one too.
When Roman’s newly found teenage son joins him, Roman’s summer stay is extended. We spend the days arguing over a building project the local council insist we do together, and the evenings with him sneaking into my room.
Then Roman’s ideas for Puffin Bay’s development cause all out war between us.
Those sparks between us? They become weapons.
Only Roman doesn’t fire his. It seems he wants something more than another zero on the end of his bank balance and he might just discard his suit – and its buttons – to keep on pressing mine. | Buy on Amazon
All Inn Thyme – Erin Branscom
When I said “I do” five years ago, I was young and had no idea the nightmare I was walking into.
When I finally escaped my husband with my young son, we ended up at an idyllic family-owned New England inn, living under new names and building a life that was safe and happy with new friends that became like family to us. I thought had figured out a way to make our lives beautiful and happy again.
Then I met Ty, the sexy and charming yet protective mechanic who didn’t seem to mind my complicated past. But then we unexpectedly ended up housemates, and he became everything I never knew I wanted or needed.
Like any good mechanic, he’s good at fixing broken things, and he’s been hard at work fixing my heart. | Buy on Amazon
The Half-life of love – Brianna Bourne
Flint Larsen has 41 days, 9 hours, and 42 minutes to live.

From that moment, Flint’s done everything he can to make his death more bearable. Cutting off all his friends, refusing to eat his favorite foods, reading only the most depressing literature by long-dead writers. He plans to spend his final days back in his hometown with his parents, quietly waiting to die.
But then he meets September Harrington, an utter explosion of brilliance and fun, and all his plans fly out the window. September has dedicated herself to curing the half-life, landing a coveted internship at the world-renowned Half-Life Institute. She has her own past that she’s refusing to deal with, choosing instead to spend her nights living it up with her friends and her days deep in the lab, where she’s working to find a cure. | Buy on Amazon
The build up – Tati Richardson
Rumpled and ragged was not how architect Ari James envisioned kicking off her first day at a new firm. And few things can top the horror of her new—and extremely hot—colleague walking in on her at the worst moment ever. Learning that she’ll be working with him on the project that’s supposed to get her career back on top makes it harder than ever to focus on her big comeback.
With a partnership at his firm on the line, nothing is going to stand in the way of Porter Harrison absolutely killing it on his new project: not his obnoxious rival, not his unpredictable brother and definitely not his new coworker whose gorgeous curves he accidentally saw and now can’t get out of his head. | Buy on Amazon
The Lonely Hearts book club – Lucy Gilmore
Sloane Parker lives a small, contained life as a librarian in her small, contained town.

Anxious, Sloane tracks the old man down only to discover him all but bedridden…and desperately struggling to hide how happy he is to see her. Wanting to bring more cheer into Arthur’s gloomy life, Sloane creates an impromptu book club. Slowly, the lonely misfits of their sleepy town begin to find each other, and in their book club, find the joy of unlikely friendship. Because as it turns out, everyone has a special book in their heart—and a reason to get lost (and eventually found) within the pages. | Buy on Amazon
Playing Pretend – Eden Summers
When I agreed to let Rome be my fake boyfriend on a work trip, I didn’t think acting like a couple would be that complicated.
He’d flash his killer smile at my colleagues.
Impress them with his charm.
While keeping my toxic ex at bay.
But that’s not the reality I’m currently drowning in.
From the moment we arrive at the resort Rome’s hands are all over me.
His whispered words in my ear more scandalously filthy than sweet.
He’s acting like a lust-drunk fool who’s dying for a taste and I can’t stop blushing… Or panicking… Because there’s only one bed in our hotel room and Rome Cavanaugh wouldn’t know how to sleep in anything other than his birthday suit. | Buy on Amazon
Your Heart – Christina Braver
Drew McAlister was the only boy to ever see her instead of just her perfect, symmetrical face. He was her first love, her only love, but it was all a lie.

When Tess and Drew inherit the rustic seaside resort they both love, they must spend a year together on the tiny island off Washington’s northwest coast in order to protect it. They’re adults now. They’ll get through the year keeping their distance. Easy.
But when everything they love is threatened, they’ll have to face the lies and the truths of the past, risking their whole hearts, or lose their one shot at forever with the only real love either of them has ever known.
You know her big brothers, Finn and Lucas, and their Perry Harbor friends. Now meet Tess Bakker and the man who owns her heart. | Buy on Amazon
The physical Attraction Seminar – Meg Reading
In her defense, Lyla Hayward didn’t expect her one-night stand to end up being her new boss. But as her luck would have it, sneaking out of his bed in the early morning hours would come back to haunt her when they were met face-to-face in the office hours later.
Real estate mogul and chief executive officer of Banks Brothers Enterprises, Barrett Banks, wasn’t one to back down from a challenge. And his latest challenge was winning over the heart of his new assistant.
A wrench in his plans came in the haze of a busy day when he got the dates for a work conference mixed up and accidentally booked him and Lyla a trip to a couples retreat instead.
When a work trip takes an unexpected turn… the best thing to do is lean into curiosity, right? Even if it means sharing a bed with the one person you shouldn’t? | Buy on Amazon
