It’s always nice to get out of your comfort zone, especially with romance books. Spanish Heritage Month is the ultimate reason to try.
For those who don’t know, October includes part of Spanish Heritage Month. Monitoring actually began on September 15 and ends on October 15. It is a special time to celebrate the culture and the impact that Hispanic and Hispanic people have made in the world.
To me, this obviously translates into romance books and I’m sure most readers are looking for some solid reporting. Fortunately, you have come to the right place as I am here to recommend some romance books that either feature Latin/Latin characters or books written by authors with that identity.
We hope you can find something you enjoy from at least one of these authors even if it’s not the book you suggested. Plus it’s basically the end of Hispanic Heritage month, you can always add them to your TBRs at the end of the year.
These romance books are a must-read in Spanish Heritage Month 2022.
Although this list is a little researched, these romance books should be on your TBR for Hispanic Heritage Month and beyond. The first is the famous Booktok book and this good print by Lauren Asher. The publisher kindly sent this message out and I totally devoured it. This is a love story between Zahra, a worker in a dreamland, and Rowan, the grandson of the owner who is tasked with making something wonderful for the garden for his inheritance.
While Rawan and Zahra are the embodiment of opposites attraction, the two eventually find common ground after more than a few mishaps. However, it makes their romance more satisfying. As for how this relates to Hispanic Heritage Month, Lauren Asher is a Latin writer, and if I remember correctly, Zahra is too. Either way, this book is fast-paced and super fun if you’re a Disney fan.
Moving on to a similar concept, I must recommend One week to claim everything by Adriana Herrera. If you’ve seen any of my other posts, you’ll know I love this author. One week to claim everything It is a Harlequin publication and it follows a second romance between Esmeralda and Rodrigo who reconnect as they both work for her father’s company Sambrano Studios.
despite of One week to claim everything In short, this book is steamy and full of emotional moments, especially for Esmerelda dealing with the death of her father who was not present in her life. The author is of Afro-Caribbean descent while both characters are Latino.
The following is another author and book I talked about before but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention it again here. The proposal they cannot refuse Written by Natalie Kanna is the marriage of an affair between two childhood friends turned enemies turned lovers. Although you’ll want to rock Liam and Kamilah to talk to each other, you’ll get sucked into the story pretty quickly and don’t want to let go. In this book, Kamilah is Puerto Rican while Liam is Irish.
Another book I mentioned earlier but I will not stop recommending it stripped before Zoe Castile. This is a masculine romance between Fallon and Robin, a teacher and a hot mess. These two complement each other in the best way. This book is obviously steamy but also incredibly fun and cute. In the end, you won’t be able to keep the smile off your face.
The following is a book that I haven’t discussed yet and this is it Island affairs by Priscilla Oliveiras. This is a love story between Sarah, a white influencer, and Luis, a Cuban firefighter who gets involved in fake dating her to save face. These two have the most amazing slow-burning romance that you will die for to finally kiss. Eventually, things start to fall apart as Sarah and her family are vacationing in Louis’s hometown but the trip is unquestionable. Plus it’s a holiday read so what more do you want?
Last but not least is definitely a recent read of mine and that is delicious temptation by Sabrina Sol. This is the first time I’ve read this author and it won’t be the last. Originally published in 2015, this romance has it all: a good girl and a bad guy, a brother’s best friend, and forced closeness. Of course, this all happens after Eric is hired to help at the Amara family bakery where she works and all the snowballs are from there.
Being a book that was published nearly a decade ago, delicious temptation It is very short and steamy while showing some great personality development and plenty of sweet treats. Plus the audiobook has just been released at the end of June 2022 and it’s a lot of fun.
In general, there are a lot of romance books written by or featuring Latin or Latin characters. Regardless of whether you read it in October or not, these romance books should be on your TBR for 2022 and beyond.
