♥️ Our March book picks are here

Found family, inner circle, ride or dies — whatever you like to call the hearts found along the way, these March picks bring all the special feels between book character crews, and oh so much more!

The fantasy romance book is a riveting Camelot retelling with a twist. Simmering with tension-filled glances, the story delivers many a high-stakes gasp and smoldering line. Plus, it has the trifecta of one horse / one tent / one spicy midnight forest scene (Wait is that last one not a thing? It should be). We’re also excited to share that the books in our March fantasy romance boxes will be signed, and the curated playlist will include special author-selected tracks!

The contemporary romance book delivers the most endearing cast of FMCs and supporting characters. This sapphic love story deserves a standing O(vation) for the emotional depth, spice, and perfect in-story run of Much Ado About Nothing, you guessed it, with a twist. Throw in the bound-to-fall-for-each-other (aka fake dating) trope and we’ve got the flawless setup for an up-all-night page-turner.

Now about these lovers and friends…

A doomed love, a dangerous mission, and a kingdom on the brink of war...

A cast-off princess…

Born into a life of duty and sacrifice, Morgan Pendragon’s destiny has never been her own. Rumored to carry the tainted blood of the fae in her veins, her birthright is stolen from her when she is a mere child.

Believed to have vanished generations ago, a fae kingdom dreaded by mortals is ascending once more, bound to reclaim what was lost by violence and bloodshed.

Our March Contemporary Romance pick:

Iris Kelly Doesn't Date by Ashley Herring Blake

Iris Kelly Doesn't Date book cover

Everyone around Iris Kelly is in love. Her best friends are all coupled up, her siblings have partners that are perfect for them, and her parents are still blissfully married. And she’s happy for all of them, truly. Iris doesn’t want any of that—dating, love, romance. She’ll stick to her commitment-free hookups, thanks very much, except no one in her life will just let her be. Everyone wants to see her settled down, but she holds firmly to her no dating rule. There’s only one problem—Iris is a romance author facing an imminent deadline for her second book, and she’s completely out of ideas.

Perfectly happy to ignore her problems as per usual, Iris goes to a bar in Portland and meets a sexy stranger, Stefania, and a night of dancing and making out turns into the worst one-night stand Iris has had in her life. To get her mind off everything, Iris tries out for the lead role in a local play, a queer retelling of Much Ado About Nothing, but comes face-to-face with Stefania, whose real name turns out to be Stevie. Desperate to save face in front of her friends, Stevie asks Iris to play along as her girlfriend. Iris is shocked, but when she realizes the arrangement might provide her with some much-needed romantic content for her book, she agrees. As the two women play the part of a happy couple, lines start to blur, and they’re left wondering who will make the real first move....
