We are excited to share some of SMP Romance’s Most Anticipated 2023 Releases:

The Rom Com Agenda by Jayne Denker (1/10/23)
Eli Masterson thought he and Victoria were meant to be together until she jetted off to Rome for a year. He’s determined to win her back, but how? To turn Eli into the sophisticated-yet-vulnerable ideal man, his girl pals force him to watch classic rom-coms. And take notes. Inadvertently drawn into the makeover scheme, Leah Keegan ends up being Eli’s guide through the world of meet-cutes and grand gestures. Even though she believes Eli doesn’t need to change a thing about himself. Even though she just might be falling for Eli…and Eli falling for her.
The Second You’re Single by Cara Tanamachi (1/31/23)
When her pledge to stay single in February inspires readers to #gosolo, freelance writer Sora Reid has a responsibility to empower her readers. But relationships aren’t built to last, so it shouldn’t be that hard. Enter Jack Mann, a muscle-bound baker who Sora hasn’t thought of Jack since they were in elementary school together. When they see each other at the local grocery store and the attraction hits hard, Sora knows she has to shut it down, quick. She can’t #gosolo AND get the guy. She can’t let down her readers. And relationships always end, so why should Jack be any different–even though he’s confounding all her long-held expectations of love?
Not That Kind of Ever After by Luci Adams (3/14/23)
Bella Marble’s career and love life aren’t what she imagined. And now her best friend, Ellie Mathews, is moving out and marrying the heinously boring Mark. Bella feels rudderless, only slightly soothed by time spent with Ellie’s brother, Marty. When Marty recommends Bella stop looking for “the one” and just have fun, Bella finds a new, empowered side of herself. She posts a fairy-tale retelling of a disastrous one night stand on a storytelling app as @B.enchanted, and all of a sudden she’s gone viral. Now, Bella’s in a fight with Ellie, her new roommates are so, deeply, weird, and the pressure is mounting to find new fairy tales to write about—but she’s got to live them first.
Hotel of Secrets by Diana Biller (3/28/23)
Maria Wallner only wants one thing: to restore her family’s hotel to its former glory. She’s not going to let anything get in her way, especially not the broad-shouldered American foreign agent who’s saved her life two times already. Eli Whittaker also only wants one thing: to find out who is selling American secret codes, arrest them, and go home to Washington, DC. But when his one lead brings him to Vienna, he is swept up into a chaotic whirlwind of balls, spies, waltzes, and beautiful hotelkeepers who seem to constantly find themselves in danger. His disapproval is tested as he slowly falls deeper into the chaos – and as his attraction to said hotelkeeper grows.
The Plus One by Mazey Eddings (4/4/23)
Indira doesn’t like Jude. Jude doesn’t like Indira. But what happens when these childhood enemies find the only thing they can rely on is each other? Thrust into an elaborate (and ridiculously drawn out) wedding event that’s stressing Jude beyond belief and has Indira seeing her ex and his new girlfriend far more frequently than any human should endure, the duo strike a bargain to be each other’s fake dates to this wedding from hell. The only problem is, their forced proximity and fake displays of affection are starting to feel a bit…real, and both are left grappling with the idea that a situation that couldn’t be worse, is made a little better with the other around.
