    It is my absolute delight to present eight of the best romance novels out in January 2023. The new year is all full of bubbles and sparkles and hope. And, you know what they always say: “new year, new you, new books.” Well, maybe I added that last bit, but I for one typically ring in the new year by taking stock of the books I am looking forward to reading in the year to come.

    So, when I looked at romance novels out in January, I found quite an exciting batch of books in store. As the holidays wind down, we are all given a bit of extra time to recommit to hobbies and routines that can sometimes be difficult to maintain with the business of all those special events we tend to have in the fall. I adore settling into January with cold weather, piles of snow, and plenty of books to keep me occupied.

    A cold January is the best time to get reading done (apologies to all my warm-weather friends for the following that likely does not apply to your experience of the month). There is nothing better than having large jackets with pockets big enough for a mass market or trade paperback that you can easily read when you are out and about. Then you also have the divine experience of sitting by a fireplace or a radiator with a nice romance, looking out onto the cold expanse just outside your window. Of course, you can read any genre in January, but why not pick up one of these new romance releases?
