New Releases to Watch: February 2021
by Donna Soluri
February might be a short month, but the list of new romance books coming out is anything but! I have combed through literal pages of February releases, and curated a few that are on my watch list. I’ve had the pleasure of reading many of these already, so suggesting you add them to your To Be Read list is not a hardship at all!
Just a couple of quick notes before we get started!
1) If you see a heart next to the title (or above it on mobile), then you’re looking at one of the books I have already read and am recommending you add to your TBR immediately—or straight to your e-reader if that’s how you roll!
2) I won’t be focusing on Book+Main Authors exclusively, however, if they do have a Book+Main profile, I’ll be sharing that information with you in the form of a handy dandy button. Make sure to hit the button to follow them so you can enjoy everything they have to offer!
The second book in Robin Covington’s Redhawk Reunion series is a smoking hot Harlequin Desire title. Justin Ling is a sexy forbidden playboy who definitely doesn’t want a wife even though it’s the one thing he desperately needs. If you’re looking for some trope candy, this book has you covered – best friend’s little sister one-night stand, an impromptu wedding, secret marriage – luxury and scandal to the nth degree!
New Kristen Ashley Series Alert! Welcome to the first novel in the Wild West MC series, which will tell the stories of the brothers of the Aces High MC, the Resurrection MC, and the Chaos MC…and the women who love them.
Clara Delany’s cheating ex-husband left her in financial distress, which leads to physical harm when she starts delivering messages for a criminal just to get by. Lucky for her, her last messenger gig takes her to Aces High Motorcycle Club and face to face with West “Buck” Hardy, the club’s president. Buck is a man of action and immediately decides the naïve but determined woman that walked into his club completely unprepared is now under his protection, whether she realizes it or not.
Karen Booth knocks it out of the park with this one, from the cover to the epilogue Gray Hair Don’t Care is a must-read book for February! Fans of seasoned romance will appreciate 47-year-old Lela Bennett getting her groove back, and luckily, the third time is the charm with her college crush and resident commitment-phobe Donovan James. If you think older characters might not be your jam, I will encourage you to give this one a try. We have some serious family drama, incredible character growth, and everything on the heat scale from sweet to smoking! This highly anticipated, much-buzzed book does not disappoint!

Beauty expert and influencer Jia Ahmed has her eye on the prize: conquering the internet today, the entire makeup industry tomorrow, and finally, finally proving herself to her big opinionated family. She has little time for love, and even less time for the men in her private messages—until the day a certain international superstar slides into her DMs, and she falls hard and fast.
There’s just one wrinkle: he has no idea who she is.
The son of a powerful Bollywood family, soap opera star Dev Dixit is used to drama, but a strange woman who accuses him of wooing her online, well, that’s a new one. As much as he’d like to focus on his Hollywood fresh start, he can’t get Jia out of his head. Especially once he starts to suspect who might have used his famous name to catfish her…
When paparazzi blast their private business into the public eye, Dev is happy to engage in some friendly fake dating to calm the gossips and to dazzle her family. But as the whole world swoons over their relationship, Jia can’t help but wonder: Can an online romance-turned-offline-fauxmance ever become love in real life?
Refuel is a fast-paced, emotionally charged, sexy, sports romance written in K. Bromberg’s Driven Worlds project.

Kamden “Kash” Coleman is the man everyone wants to be and the driver everyone wants to beat. This time around, Arianna just might get her chance. Kash’s life is rife with chaos right now. Between the pressures of his career, problems with an ex, and the very real possibility that he could’ve fathered a child, it’s all he can do to keep his head in the race and his heart in the right place. Arianna is the distraction he doesn’t know he needs.
The second book in Parrish’s Garnet Run series, my full review will be coming soon. Until then, I will share that Best Laid Plans is one you don’t want to sleep on! Charlie Matheson takes care of things, everything, all the time with the possible exception of himself. Tattooed stranger in town, Rye Janssen, tends to break things; things like promises, hearts, leases. Sounds like the perfect project for Charlie. Maybe they can finally fix up a home together.
If you’re in the mood for a second chance, stand-alone love story, Return to Us is the title for you.
At eighteen, I walked away from Willow Creek Valley for good. I was young, scared, and stupid, and it cost me the love of my life—Grayson Parkerson.
Fourteen years later, a crash sends me back home to recover.
Back to where we met, fell in love, and planned a future.
The one he’s now living as a single dad to his daughter.
Working at The Park Inn together gives us a chance to reconnect, and seeing him with his little girl makes me long for the days when he was mine. One look in his gorgeous blue-green eyes, and it’s like I never left. One kiss and my world is upside down. One night together, and I know without a doubt, in his arms is where I belong.
I’m not the girl I was—intimidated by his wealthy family and desperate to escape our small town. I can imagine a new life for us here.
But he’s learned to guard his heart, and trust won’t come easily.

Second chances are all the rage!
Sixteen years ago, a teenaged Will Sterling saw—or rather, heard—the girl of his dreams. Standing beneath an apartment building balcony, he shared a perfect moment with a lovely, warm-voiced stranger. It’s a memory that’s never faded, though he’s put so much of his past behind him. Now an unexpected inheritance has brought Will back to that same address, where he plans to offload his new property and get back to his regular life as an overworked doctor. Instead, he encounters a woman, two balconies above, who’s uncannily familiar . . .
No matter how surprised Nora Clarke is by her reaction to handsome, curious Will, or the whispered pre-dawn conversations they share, she won’t let his plans ruin her quirky, close-knit building. Bound by her loyalty to her adored grandmother, she sets out to foil his efforts with a little light sabotage. But beneath the surface of their feud is an undeniable connection. A balcony, a star-crossed couple, a fateful meeting—maybe it’s the kind of story that can’t work out in the end. Or maybe, it’s the perfect second chance . . .
Get ready for a brand new series of interconnected standalones based on Moreland’s popular Vested Interest world.
Grace VanRyan has a life plan.
She loves a good plan.
Jaxson Richards is decidedly not part of her plan.
He’s older, he’s sexy, and he’s 100% off-limits.
