Contemporary Romance Books Stories

Contemporary romance books are set in the author’s present day. But aside from that one common denominator, most contemporary books don’t share many resemblances. They span countless subgenres and tropes, which is part of what makes modern romances so fun.

From new releases to classic works that were contemporary to their time, these novels can be westerns, thrillers, rockstar romances, and many other subgenres. Often, they feature dynamics like enemies-to-lovers, fake relationships, second chances, and more. Readers of authors like Jasmine Guillory, Talia Hibbert, Christina Lauren, Alyssa Cole, and Lucy Parker will be very familiar with the joys of contemporary romance, and how the subgenre showcases modern love in all its diverse forms.
