I blame Hollywood for my love of romance novels. I came of age during the early 2000s—the golden age of romcoms—and every weekend I’d watch Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon or another A-lister earn their HEA (that’s happily ever after). My interest in romance on the big screen quickly transferred to the page—my most recent romance novel, A Holly Jolly Diwali, was published in Oct. 2021.

But reading and writing romance has taught me the genre is more about the journey than the destination. It can be about learning to live life authentically, accepting past hurts and mistakes or growing into better versions of ourselves. It can be just as much about the pursuit of self-love as romantic love. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, here are 10 new releases about finding love in all its forms, whether you’re celebrating with your bestie, that special someone or the most special person of all—you.
