    Romance Recommendations for Your Zodiac Sign 

    Playing matchmaker with readers and romance novels is so much fun! I’m also a huge zodiac junkie. I read my horoscope routinely and go absolutely nuts for compatibility charts. Inspired by traits of the twelve signs, here are some reading recommendations, though don’t take them too seriously. I won’t tell if you want to dip into the recs for other signs!

    Aquarius: Heels Over Head, by Elyse Springer
    First off, Aquarius is a water sign and a romance featuring professional divers and swimmers is pretty on the nose. Brandon Evans is aloof and carefree. He also knows how good of a diver he is. Meanwhile, Jeremy Reeve is struggling with his family’s feelings on his sexuality. He thinks his only hope of being accepted is by winning an Olympic medal. While Brandon and Jeremy seem like opposites on the surface, they’re rather complementary as teammates and it’s beautiful to see the divers find a sense a community within their sport.

    Pisces: The Duchess Deal, by Tessa Dare
    Pisces are known to be compassionate and selfless, but that can often bite them in the butt later on. The Duchess Deal has a battle-scarred hero who has a nightly hobby of fighting London’s riffraff, but what he wants deep down is an heir. Emma Gladstone is the daughter of a vicar and a seamstress, and she sees beneath the Duke of Ashbury’s physical insecurities. She agrees to help him with his heir problem, but she has a few conditions. Ash forbids kissing. Emma wants to share a meal every night. Though they both agree to help one another, they’ll definitely get more than they bargained for with this arrangement.

    Aries: Hate to Want You, by Alisha Rai
    Speaking as an Aries myself, I know we’re a bit turbulent and moody, but we’re also confident and incredibly passionate. Hate to Want You is pretty emotional and is bursting with dramatic family secrets and scandals. In a Romeo and Juliet-esque romance, Livvy Kane and Nicholas Chandler feel as though they can’t be together because of their families and accompanying baggage. But one night a year, they agree to meet in the bedroom. However, their forbidden romance can no longer remain a secret as their arrangement becomes complicated: Livvy doesn’t show for their scheduled yearly meeting and instead returns to their hometown.

    Taurus: The Pages of the Mind, by Jeffe Kennedy
    Tauruses are known to be practical and responsible, but a bit uncompromising, which is why Dafne, the scholarly librarian heroine of The Pages of the Mind, is a great fit. Dedicated to her job, she travels on behalf of her queen to help successfully incorporate the northern kingdoms into her queen’s realm. There, she meets a barbarian king with a significant language barrier between them. Dafne’s resolve never falters even as King Nakoa has her submit to marriage in order to broker a new alliance. Dafne handles things in stride, surprisingly, and the way she adapts to a new kingdom is rather sweet.

    Gemini: The Deep End, by Kristen Ashley
    Gemini are often defined as having two different personalities and the submissive Alpha hero of The Deep End is sure to appeal to both. Outside the bedroom, Olivier is strong, masculine, and all Alpha. Then he joins the Honey Club and meets Amelie, a cold, calculating Domme who likes her men submissive. Having an “Alpha-sub” is an interesting twist in characterization, especially since the heroine is often in a position of power in the bedroom. This romance is also heavy on erotic content, but that doesn’t mean it lacks in a beautiful, developing romance between Olly and Amelie.

    Cancer: Beauty Like the Night, by Joanna Bourne
    While Cancers can be incredibly empathetic, they can also be a bit manipulative. Sorry, Cancers! But a historical romance with espionage and spy shenanigans is a perfect romance read for you. Sèverine de Cabrillac and Raoul Deverney are brought together by a similar goal: justice. When Sèverine seeks out Raoul’s help in rescuing her missing daughter, Raoul knows that this mission could very well lead him to the killer of his estranged wife. Brought together by grief and worry, the pair quickly become a formidable and rather cutthroat team. It’s a romance with some bite!

    Leo: Dating You/Hating You, by Christina Lauren
    Leos are charismatic, funny, and often the life of the party. They’re also stubborn and demand a lot of attention. And trust me, Dating You/Hating You is going to demand nearly all of your free time. It’s also really hilarious. Evelyn Abbey thought she met a really great guy at a friend’s Halloween Party, but when she realizes that same guy, Carter Aaron, is now her competition at work after a company merger, their romance quickly skids to a halt. There’s an office prank war, an oblivious boss who things dog treats are granola bars, and some serious girl power in this battle-of-the-sexes workplace romance.

    Virgo: The Winter King, by C.L. Wilson
    When it comes to Virgos, they’re incredibly detailed, but are also frequently drawn to nature. A fantasy romance seems like a sure bet! Wilson’s fantasy romances have some amazing world-building from the differing kingdoms to how magic operates from person to person. The heroine can also summon storms. How cool is that! Wynter Atrialan hopes to get revenge on the king of Summerlea by taking one of his daughters, Khamsin Coruscate, as his bride. What Wynter doesn’t count on is Khamsin enjoying her newfound sense of freedom. The settings are descriptive and the courtship is lovely in this utterly bewitching fantasy romance.

    Libra: A New Leash on Love, by Debbie Burns
    Gentle and with a love of keeping company, Libras always strike me as being on the sweeter side of the astrological spectrum. A New Leash on Love is an adorable contemporary romance, as if it weren’t obvious by the chocolate lab puppy on the cover. Megan Anderson runs the local no-kill shelter, dedicating her life to helping animals in need. Craig Williams hates that he has to take his daughter’s new dog to the shelter, but since his divorce seems to suffer one misstep after another. When he drops the dog off, he isn’t counting on a tense confrontation with the shelter’s owner. Their first meeting doesn’t go particularly well, to say the least, but things definitely improve on their second meeting. And the third. Pick this one up, if you like romances with plenty of cute, furry secondary characters.

    Scorpio: The Chase, by Vanessa Fewings
    Scorpios are the ones you call when you need some resourceful and courageous. They can meet a challenge head-on, but they’re steadfast in their beliefs and can hold things close to the vest. The Chase is a contemporary romance with elements of suspense as the heroine, Zara Leighton, is enlisted to track down an international art thief. It’s a case she could only dream of. There’s just one problem and that’s her investigation firm’s billionaire client: Tobias Wilder. Enigmatic and mysterious, Tobias seems like the perfect suspect—or Zara’s greatest distraction.

    Sagittarius: Roman Crazy, by Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci
    If there’s one weakness to being a Sagittarius, it’s the call of wanderlust and the need for travel! With her divorce nearing finalization, Avery Bardot restarts her life for the summer in beautiful Rome, Italy. She spends her days exploring the city and her nights eating amazing food. It’s in Rome, surprisingly, that she meets the one man she never forgot: Marcello Bianchi, and the feeling seems to be mutual. Though with the summer quickly approaching its end, Avery isn’t sure if she can give up her adventurous life in Italy and return to the States.

    Capricorn: Silver Silence, by Nalini Singh
    Capricorns are masters of self-control, but when it comes to their family, all bets are off. Silver Mercant helps run an international emergency response network. It’s practically her job to remain calm under pressure. Then she meets Valentin Nikolaev, a bear shifter and leader of his powerful clan. There’s something about Silver that sparks an undeniable interested in Val and when an unknown force begins to threaten Silver’s life, Val will protect her at any cost. And we all know what happens when you poke a bear.

    50 Must-Read Regency Romances 

    There’s one genre of historical romance that has it all: Regency Romance. Taking place during approximately 1795-1837 (also known as the Regency era of England, where King George was ousted from the throne and his son took his place…who would later be followed by Queen Victoria!) there are hundreds of novels following the lives and loves of Lords, Earls, Dukes, Marquesses, Rogues, Spinsters, and more. For those just starting out in the genre (or those who can’t get enough!) I’ve narrowed it down to 50 must-read Regency romances, but if you have any other recommendations, leave them in the comments below!

    Lord of Scoundrels, by Loretta Chase
    A classic within the genre follows the infamous Marquess of Dain, whose reputation has not one iota of respectability. But when Jessica Trent walks into his life, Sebastian must convince a good woman to fall from grace—and fall in love with him.

    Slightly Dangerous, by Mary Balogh
    Mary Balogh is a Regency icon. Christine Derrick is intrigued when the mysterious Duke of Bewcastle invites her to become his mistress—but she isn’t an easy mark, and Wulfric soon realizes he’ll need more than lust to win her over.

    It Happened One Autumn, by Lisa Kleypas 
    An American heiress travels to England in search of a husband with a title—and the last man that will ever be is Marcus, the Earl of Westcliff. He’s cold, reserved, and stubborn beyond reproach. Then one night changes all of that, but once Lillian and Marcus fall in love, a conspiracy emerges to rip them apart.

    Flowers From the Storm, by Laura Kinsale
    Another veritable icon of Regency Romance where a wounded man with a dark past is healed by true love. Maddy Timms is a pious, religious woman—which is why she’s suspicious of the notorious rake Sebastian—Earl, Duke, and Viscount—working with her mathematician father. When he has a stroke, Maddy compassionately cares for him and learns that the past is nothing but a memory when confronted by a future with someone you deeply care for.

    Devil in Winter, by Lisa Kleypas 
    Read It Happened One Autumn and you will meet the villainous Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent, one of Regency’s most beloved (and hated) rakes. There might be no one more dangerous, except Evangeline Jenner’s terrible, greedy relatives. That’s why a marriage of convenience with Sebastian is her only way to escape them. He agrees, but what starts as convenience becomes a relationship he would as soon die—or kill—for.

    Romancing the Duke, by Tessa Dare 
    After being raised on the fairytales of her writer father, Isolde has given up on true love. How can such happiness find her when she has no money and no home? But luck shines on Izzy when she finds out she’s inherited a beautiful castle from her godfather. There’s just one problem: Ransom Vane, the Duke of Rothbury, lives there. Blinded from an injury in his past, Ransom is harsh and bitter, but when Izzy arrives, one ray of sunshine turns into true love.

    When He was Wicked, by Julia Quinn 
    When Michael Stirling—a rogue known for his penchant for chasing women—meets Francesca Bridgerton, it is love at first sight. The problem? She’s marrying his cousin in two days.

    Thunder and Roses, by Mary Jo Putney
    Claire Morgan is desperate to save her small village—that’s the only reason she would approach the man known as the Demon Rake for help. He agrees, with one catch: move in with him, and tarnish her reputation, letting society think the worst of them both. But with them against the world, it’s no wonder an arrangement of mutual benefit eventually turns to love.

    Ruthless, by Anne Stuart
    Remember the ousted King George I mentioned earlier? Well, he had friends, and in this Regency romance they all secretly gather at a brothel to explore their carnal desires. No one is more accomplished at this than Viscount Rohan, except when it comes to Elinor Harriman, who seems immune to his seduction.

    Duke of Sin, by Elizabeth Hoyt
    Sinfully attractive but dangerously unscrupulous, Valentine Napier, the Duke of Montgomery, has returned from exile to seek vengeance. But he meets Bridget Crumb, his new housekeeper, and finds he has a goal in mind. But Bridget has another reason for being in the Duke’s bedroom, and when her secret comes to light, their bourgeoning romance is threatened by the truth.

    A Rogue by any Other Name, by Sara McLean
    Another British elite exiled from society because of their dark past, the Marquess of Bourne is back, and back to his old ways. Lady Penelope Marbury doesn’t belong in his world. But she’s the key to helping him right the wrongs done to him, which means he must keep her close, but not let her into his heart.

    The Most Dangerous Duke in Londonby Madeline Hunter
    Clara Cheswick is a heroine with no interest in marriage. She has ambition and drive, publishing a women’s journal. So when the brooding and handsome rake Adam Penrose proposes marriage, she’s skeptical. After all, she’s the daughter of the man his family hates most.

    Nothing Like a Duke, by Jane Ashford
    Lord Robert Gresham loves Flora Jennings, but after years of pursuing her, he finally gives up. Of course, it’s at that exact moment when Flora shows up at his doorstep, finally ready for love.

    Blame it on the Duke, by Lenora Bell
    Nicolas, Lord Hatherly, does not want to marry—especially because madness runs in his family, and will inevitably come for him. But he has to marry to pay back his father’s debts. Alice Tombs feels the same way, having pushed away three suitors previously in her attempts to delay marriage. So they strike a deal: a summer to prove their marriage is “real”, and then they can go their separate ways. Except that the summer nights prove sensual, and what is fake and what is real become difficult to distinguish.

    Six Impossible Things, by Elizabeth Hoyt
    Lord Rimsell is the opposite of a rake: strong, dependable, and honorable, he can be taken for his word. Which is why when he is caught after a moment of temptation with Rosalie Stratton, his course is clear: he must marry her, to protect their reputations. But Rosalie is not all she appears, and her secrets could taint Brody’s honor…

    Once Upon a Marquess, by Courtney Milan
    Judith Worth hates Christian Trent, the man she fell for who then destroyed her father. So when a difficult situation arises and she has to go to him for help, she is angry and ashamed. But Christian has always loved Judith, and will take this opportunity to do everything he can to convince her he’s not the man she thinks he is.

    One Good Earl Deserves a Lover, by Sara MacLean
    Philippa Marbury is a learned woman, who cares more for books than brooding men. Engaged to a lovely—albeit boring—man, she has the rest of her life planned out. But until the wedding takes place, she decides to pursue the parts of life she has ignored—for research purposes, of course. Enter scoundrel Cross, gaming hall owner and sexual conquest. But can Philippa keep her attraction to Cross purely scientific?

    What the Duke Desires, by Sabrina Jeffries
    Maximillian’s brother has been dead for a long time—which is why when a letter from an investigator hints that he may be alive, the Duke of Lyons is game to take on the case. But the investigator goes missing, and Maximillian is left with the man’s sister, Lissette, to seek out the truth. Now they are searching for two people, but conspiracy, and attraction, threaten to undo everything they are working for.

    If You Deceive, by Kresley Cole
    Ethan MacCarrick was brutally beaten and disfigured after being accused of a crime he didn’t commit. He got his vengeance against the man who gave the order, but it only made him hungry for more. Which is why he decides to pursue Madeleine Van Rowen, his enemy’s daughter. But revenge is a dish no longer served cold when passion ignites between them.

    The Pleasures of Passion, by Sabrina Jeffries
    Niall Lindsay has killed a man, which means he has to flee for his life. He expects the woman he loves, Brilliana, to come with him, but she does not. She doesn’t wait for him, either.

    A Duke of Her Own, by Eloisa James
    A rake must marry to take responsibility for his illegitimate children, fathered over his years of being irresponsible with women. No one is better suited to be the Duke of Villiers’ wife than Eleanor, the daughter of the Duke of Montague. Except that Lisette, the daughter of a different duke, engaged to another man…is the one who tempts him most.

    Ravished, by Amanda Quick 
    Harriet Pomeroy needs a husband to protect her against the looters and thieves using the caves along her seaside home. Who more fearsome to scare them away than the Beast of Blackthorne Hall, Gideon Westbrook? With his scarred face and dangerous reputation, he is the perfect protector…but it will take a lot to get him to find the heart needed to truly care for her.

    A Rose in Winter, Kathleen Woodiwiss
    Erienne Fleming is beautiful, with suitors lining up to court her—but she only has eyes for Christopher Seton, an American…and can’t marry him anyway, because of her father’s devastating debts. She is won (or, rather, purchased) by Lord Saxton, a man who wears a mask and cloak to hide the results of a terrible fire. And yet, just as she starts to fall for him, Christopher Seton appears once more. Which will she choose: to remain the wife of a man who may not be able to reveal himself to her, or to betray him?

    Forbidden, by Jo Beverly

Arabella pretends to be an aristocratic heiress, and so when Beaumaris introduces her to London society as one of them, she is scared of the consequences if he finds out she is a phony.

    Cold-Hearted Rake, by Lisa Kleypas 
    Devon Ravenel is a devilish rake whose plans are interrupted by the inheritance of an earldom, and the responsibilities that come with it: namely, freeing the estate of debt, and caring for the former Earl’s sisters and the man’s widow. Kathleen doesn’t trust Devon, but can’t deny her attraction to him—resulting in a war for both of them between honor and passion.

    Trial by Desire, by Courtney Milan
    Lady Kate Carhart has finally healed from the damage done when her husband left her. So when Ned returns without notice, determined to win her back, she is equally determined to resist his charms. But when a secret from her past comes back to haunt her, he is the only one she can depend on.

    My American Duchess, by Eloisa James
    The Duke of Trent must marry a woman respected in society—aka, not Merry Pelford, a wealthy American infamous for leaving two betrothals.

But when an attraction grows between them, more than just politics is at stake.

    My Dangerous Duke, by Gaelen Foley

Duke Warrington has sworn off love, having no time between the Inferno Club’s missions and out of fear of the tragedy that always befalls the men in his family. But complications arise when a kidnapped woman is brought to him and he decides to avenge her—because its more than just king and country he winds up fighting for, but her heart.

    The Magpie Lord, by KJ Charles
    An M/M Regency romance with a paranormal twist! Lucien Vaudrey has been exiled to China for twenty years.

    My One True Highlander, by Suzanne Enoch

    The Corinthian, by Georgette Heyer 
    To avoid marrying her cousin, Penelope Creed runs away from London dressed as a boy. She is discovered by Sir Richard Wyndham, who vows to protect her.

    A Night to Surrender (Spindle Cove #1), by Tessa Dare
    At times laugh-out-loud funny, this story shows another side of Regency, a side without all the balls and high-society woman. It takes place in a delightful little seaside resort town, where Susanna Finch invites ladies of “good breeding and delicate constitution” to come experience the healing properties of the seaside air, good food, and exercise. But when Lt. Col. Bram and a few fellow soldiers show up under orders to gather a militia in the sleepy town, Susanna fears a full-scale invasion of her safe space.

    Someone to Hold, by Mary Balogh
    Camille Wescott is a bastard without a title—her parents’ marriage was declared bigamous. Fleeing London society for a setting where she is less notorious, Camille teaches at an orphanage and lives with her grandmother. She meets Joel Cunningham, who is charged with painting her portrait. What begins as a fiery, abrasive relationship—as he once had feelings for her half-sister— soon turns to passion.

    When Beauty Tamed the Beast, by Eloisa James

    Silk is for Seduction, by Eloisa James 
    A family of dressmakers find love in this Regency series. Marcelline Noirot is the definition of fashionable, and to make her mark on society she sets out to make over the least-fashionable: the betrothed of the Duke of Clevedon! But that means getting Clevedon on her side, and she finds the task made more difficult by the temptation of seduction between them.

    A Lady’s Lesson in Scandal, by Meredith Duran
    Simon St. Maur is a rake like no other—but when he inherits an Earldom, he decides to start over, with a fresh reputation. However, he was cut from the will, and a title with no money is useless; so he sets out for an heiress with the money to finance his new lifestyle. He meets Nell Whitby when she breaks into the former earl’s house with a gun in her hand—and proposes marriage. There’s one hitch: she’s not the heiress he thinks she is…

    The Secret Mistress, by Mary Balogh
    A beauty with a title and pedigree only wants a simple life with a marriage of love. Luckily for her, she thinks she finds it in Edward, the Earl of Heyward, when he defends her honor…unfortunately for him, Angeline is the last woman on earth he should marry.

    Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen
    If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Jane Austen should be incredibly satisfied that all of these regency romances evolved from the tradition her novels inspired. This classic tale of misconceptions, miscommunication, and misguided interference between a cold, stoic man and a woman who thinks she has him all figured out has endured the test of time.
