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. 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.
Do you want a fantasy regency romcom? Look no further because you’ve found it.Half a Soul is a hilarious historical romance that takes place in London and features one young woman who has been living her life with half a soul after a fae took it from her when she was just a kid.
She arrives in London to accompany her cousin in her search for a husband, along with her meddlesome and annoying aunt alongside them. Dora feels like a secondary character in another person’s story, but when she meets the grumpy but sweet Lord Sorcier, Elias Wilder, her whole life changes.
Now, if you want a romcom but with zombies, do check outThe Undertaking of Hart and Mercy. This fascinating and interesting fantasy romance introduces demigods, undertakers, talking animals, and some pen pals.
It’s hilarious in a way that not many books are. Hart and Mercy, our main protagonists, will quickly steal your heart while you get to know them, see them grow before your eyes, and reach their happily ever after. Even though they are *whispers* enemies, you’ll see their chemistry easily and won’t be able to stop rooting for them.
But what if you crave a little bit of danger and steam? Not to worry becauseKing of Battle and Blood will satisfy your needs. St. Clair is well-known for her Hades and Persphone fantasy romance series, but she kicked down the door to let us know she also has a new series that features sexy vampires and risky fights.
In this novel, you’ll get to meet Isolde and Adrian, one a human princess and the other a vampire king. Different beings from enemy kingdoms, but for peace, they agree to marry. It’s the start of a marriage of convenience, but that soon turns into something more when feelings and memories start to come up in their relationship.
Another book you can look forward to isThe Dark King. Think Las Vegas glamour with some deceit, fae, and danger when it comes to this book. But also you’ll be needing a fan while reading this because oh man is this hot.
Maxwell crafts an intriguing story of fae kings in Las Vegas when Bryn Meara, the heroine, decides to take a trip to an exclusive, ultra-luxe hotel and finds herself married to the reclusive billionaire owner of said hotel. And that’s not the only thing! Because she also realizes that he’s not only a billionaire, he’s royalty; the fae king of the Night Cout.
One thing I’m fully enjoying this year is the light fantasy romance books publishers have been releasing. Sometimes I get a headache when it comes to intricate fantasy worlds and difficult magic systems. I love them, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes you are in the mood for something light and easy to follow along.
Just Like Magic has the perfect amount of magic and a ton of romance. It follows Bettie Hughes who has to return to her family’s house for the holidays but doesn’t want to tell them she’s broke and living in a dead person’s house. So, when she accidentally summons the Holiday Spirit in person, she thinks all her problems have been solved. Put a little bit of fake engagement trope and lots of chaotic situations and you’ll get Hogle’sJust Like Magic.
Finally, this is another light fantasy romance novel everyone should be reading. The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches is a warm and uplifting novel where witches exist.
Mika, a witch, knows she has to hide her magic in order not to draw attention. She follows the rules to a T except when it comes to uploading videos of her doing magic to her secret online account. But then, someone actually contacts her! They want her to travel to the mysterious Nowhere House so she can teach three young witches how to control their magic.

February is Black History Month, a month when Black Americans’ achievements and contributions are honored. I believe you should always support Black authors' work throughout the year though! So, please always try to share light to their work and read their books during the year, not JUST during February.
For this list, I wanted to highlight a favorite romantic trope of mine, fake dating!

Small town romances are comfort reads for me, hands down. I could read them forever and I would never get tired of them. They give you found family, warmth, and lots of love and for me, those are the perfect ingredients for a romance novel.
One of my all-time favorite tropes is the “city girl goes to a small town” because I just love heroines who are a little bit lost, a little bit lonely, and find a family in a small town where they never thought it could happen.
