Let's Fall in Love: Anticipated February Releases

It's the month of LOVE! Yes, I'm single, but I've always loved Valentine's Day. I never need an excuse to read a romance novel, but for those of you who do ... February is the perfect time!

Here are some February romance releases that I'm excited about. I haven't read any of these books yet, so I can't speak to the "spice" level ... so be sure to do your own do diligence before reading! I do plan to read several this month, and I'll be sure to let you know my thoughts after I've read them.

Until Leaves Fall in Paris by Sarah Sundin

Release date: Feb. 1, 2022
Publisher: Revell
Buy on Amazon (ad)

Sarah Sundin's books never fail to make my yearly best-of list (well, when I actually make one!), and I'm so ready for this book! It should be on its way to me at this very moment.

As the Nazis march toward Paris in 1940, American ballerina Lucie Girard buys her favorite English-language bookstore to allow the Jewish owners to escape. Lucie struggles to run Green Leaf Books due to oppressive German laws and harsh conditions, but she finds a way to aid the resistance by passing secret messages between the pages of her books.

Widower Paul Aubrey wants nothing more than to return to the States with his little girl, but the US Army convinces him to keep his factory running and obtain military information from his German customers. As the war rages on, Paul offers his own resistance by sabotaging his product and hiding British airmen in his factory. After they meet in the bookstore, Paul and Lucie are drawn to each other, but she rejects him when she discovers he sells to the Germans. And for Paul to win her trust would mean betraying his mission.

Master of WWII-era fiction Sarah Sundin invites you onto the streets of occupied Paris to discover whether love or duty will prevail.

In Search of a Prince by Toni Shiloh

Release date: Feb. 1, 2022
Publisher: Bethany House
Buy on Amazon (ad)

I have been eagerly anticipating this book ever since I heard about it last year. I've loved several of Shiloh's other books, and this one sounds wonderful!

Brielle Adebayo is fully content teaching at a New York City public school and taking annual summer vacations with her mother to Martha's Vineyard. But everything changes when her mom drops the mother of all bombshells--Brielle is a princess in the kingdom of Ọlọrọ Ilé, Africa, and she must immediately assume her royal position, since the health of her grandfather, King Tiwa Jimoh Adebayo, is failing.

Distraught by her mother's betrayal, Brielle is further left spinning when the Ọlọrọ Ilé Royal Council brings up an old edict that states she must marry before assuming the throne or the crown will be passed to another. Uncertain who to choose from the council's list of bachelors, she struggles with the decision along with the weight of her new role in a new country. With her world totally shaken, she must take a chance on love and brave the perils a wrong decision may bring.

A Perfect Equation by Elizabeth Everett

Release Date: Feb. 15, 2022
Publisher: Berkley
Pre-order from Amazon (ad)

I mean, seriously ... that cover is perfection, and the description sounds like just my kind of romance. I can't wait to read this one!

How do you solve the Perfect Equation? Add one sharp-tongued mathematician to an aloof, handsome nobleman. Divide by conflicting loyalties and multiply by a daring group of women hell-bent on conducting their scientific experiments. The solution is a romance that will break every rule.

Six years ago, Miss Letitia Fenley made a mistake, and she’s lived with the consequences ever since. Readying herself to compete for the prestigious Rosewood Prize for Mathematics, she is suddenly asked to take on another responsibility—managing Athena’s Retreat, a secret haven for England’s women scientists. Having spent the last six years on her own, Letty doesn’t want the offers of friendship from other club members and certainly doesn’t need any help from the insufferably attractive Lord Greycliff.

Lord William Hughes, the Viscount Greycliff cannot afford to make any mistakes. His lifelong dream of becoming the director of a powerful clandestine agency is within his grasp. Tasked with helping Letty safeguard Athena’s Retreat, Grey is positive that he can control the antics of the various scientists as well as manage the tiny mathematician—despite their historic animosity and simmering tension.

As Grey and Letty are forced to work together, their mutual dislike turns to admiration and eventually to something... magnetic. When faced with the possibility that Athena’s Retreat will close forever, they must make a choice. Will Grey turn down a chance to change history, or can Letty get to the root of the problem and prove that love is the ultimate answer?

Strength in the Storm by Laurel Blount

Release Date: Feb. 22, 2022
Publisher: Berkley
Pre-order from Amazon (ad)

I have a ... complicated relationship with Amish fiction, but something about this book piqued my interest. 

In this touching Amish romance, a brokenhearted woman and a steadfast man discover that the safest place to weather tragedy is in each other's arms.

After the murder of both her parents, Emma Hochstedler returns to the small community of Johns Mill, hoping to resume her quiet existence. Reclaiming her place proves harder than expected--especially now that a movie is being made about her family's loss. But then, an old friend offers her a lifeline that gives her new purpose.

Amish builder Samuel Christner is the biggest--and the strongest--man in town. In fact, the gentle giant has only one weakness--Emma. Even though she broke his heart, he won't let his childhood sweetheart face her troubles alone. He hires Emma as a nurse for his elderly aunt...and finds himself falling for her all over again.

But while romance blooms, storm clouds gather. And when darkness falls, it will take all Sam's strength--and all their love--to see them through.

What books are you looking forward to in February? Let me know in the comments - I'm always eager to add to my TBR!
