Black Romance Novels Published in 2021

Sistah Girls, it’s that time of year, and I am back to give you the scoop on what you may have missed in 2021. This recap holds a vast selection of books and novellas, it also features a selection of new authors to try.

I average reading a book or three a day, so my list is always extensive at the end of the year. The selections are books I enjoyed and wanted to share with my Sistah Girls. 

* Housekeeping Note* The books are not in any order as to my preference. If the book is on the list, I enjoyed it. First or last, the books were worth including on this listicle. Enjoy!


Tried-and-True Go-To-Authors. The books are guaranteed to be uniquely impressive.

Readers can depend on the first list of authors when a remarkable story is a goal. The list is about Black Love, the tales are magnificent with excellent writing, and the best storytelling you will ever experience.
