Throughout the country we all experience spring differently. Your clocks may have changed, flowers and trees may be in bloom, but one thing is for sure, it’s time to spring into a romance novel!

Below you will find three of our spring picks, along with the complete list of Harlequin category romance novels releasing in April.

D’Vaughn & Kris Plan A Wedding by Chencia C. Higgins (Carina Adores, trade paperback, ebook, audiobook, on-sale January 25, 2022, 9781335534941): This laugh-out-loud WLW (woman-loving-woman) romantic comedy takes readers behind the scenes of reality TV to deliver zany hijinks along with a charming opposites-attract romance. D’Vaughn and Kris, who have never met before, are paired together for an episode of Instant I do and now have just six weeks to convince their families that they’re getting married to win the $100,000 prize. Selling their chemistry on camera is surprisingly easy, and it’s still there when no one else is watching. But a reality show isn’t the best place to create a solid foundation, and their fake wedding might just derail their real relationship before it even starts.
