Steamy Romance Releases of April 2020

It’s April already? Man, time flies!

I have a question for you all: “What kind of books do you want to see more in my steamy romance releases posts?”

Are you looking for dark romances, LGBTQIA+, African-American, or what? So far, I’ve been finding whatever seems like a good read and trending categories. You may have noticed I’ve listed tons of shifter, sci-fi, and billionaire books in the past. There must be more, right (haha)?

With that said, feel free to comment below any suggestions. I’ll be the lookout for more new romance genres in the future. 🙂

May I present to you the steamy romance releases of April 2020:
