For Native American Heritage Month, or as it’s commonly known, American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month, we wanted to showcase some fabulous romance books written by Native American authors. Because of how many Native romance novels there are out there written by white authors, it’s so very important to also share a spotlight on the romance books written by Native authors. Rarely do we see them on lists, so hopefully in the years to come, we see more and more Native authors getting the opportunity to share their books with us.
King of Battle and Blood by Scarlett St. Clair
Of course, I had to talk about Scarlett St. Clair and her epic fantasy romance that isKing of Battle and Blood. If you have wanted to read more steamy fantasy books, this book is definitely for you!
It follows Isolde, a human princess, who has to marry the king of the vampires, Adrian, in order to secure peace in her kingdom. What starts as a marriage of convenience soon turns into a deep relationship between the two of them. There is court intrigue, bloody fights, betrayal, and lots of romantic moments as well.
Taking on the Billionaire by Robin Covington
This billionaire romance features a private investigator and a self-made tech billionaire who needs her help to find the person who is sabotaging his company.
After Tess Lynch helped him find his family, he doesn’t want to part with her yet. And maybe she doesn’t either… But even though she’s hired to investigate Adam’s company, she also pursues a plan of her own; to get even for what Adam’s adoptive father did to hers.
Heartbeat Braves by Pamela Sanderson
Workplace romances are always so entertaining andHeartbeat Braves is no different. This story is set in an urban Indian center and introduces Rayanne, the heroine, to us.
Rayanne works there and the center is underfunded and very much struggling. This is why the new leader hands her special project to his nephew. He’s annoying but also attractive, so you see the problem, right?
Over and Over Again by Cole McCade
Over and Over Again is the slowest slow-burn romance you won’t help but adore as soon as you start reading it. It tells the story of Luca Ward who once upon a time told Imre Claybourne he would love him forever.
Years later, Luca finds himself at Imre’s goat farm and his deep-buried feelings still hold true. But what if the man you love is twice your age and… your father’s best friend?! This delicious forbidden romance is everything you’re searching for!

Remember when I mentioned in myprevious posthow a groveling scene can totally make or break a romance book? Well, let's dive into that topic a bit more, shall we?

Well, here's the scoop: I absolutely love it when the groveling happens after the breakup. It's that magical moment when the person who messed up finally realizes they can't live without their other half and goes all out to win them back. Talk about fireworks!

Look, sometimes you crave a fantasy book. You want action-packed scenes, high-stakes, fights, magic systems, and even talking animals. You want epic adventures that make the characters grow closer. But if you’re like me, you also want to read a romance book. How someone falls in love and finds their other half. How there are small moments between characters, like holding their hand and kissing their forehead, that make you fall madly in love with the book immediately. But what if you crave both of them at the same time? The good thing is that fantasy romance books exist; a little bit of one and a little bit of the other mixed together in one unique and beautiful book.
