The best books about enemies who can’t stand the heat (between them)

The Books I Picked & Why

Heart on Fire (The Kingmaker Chronicles, 3)

By Amanda Bouchet

Book cover of Heart on Fire (The Kingmaker Chronicles, 3)

Why this book?

This book was one of the first romantic fantasy books I picked up and it completely captivated me from the very first page. You are immediately thrown into an incredible world, right at the same time the two main characters meet. It’s fast-paced, steamy, and perfect for anyone who loves that enemies-to-lovers vibe (me, I’m anyone). Kat and Griffin are amazing together and it’s so much fun to watch them figure that out.

Blade & Rose

By Miranda Honfleur

Book cover of Blade & Rose

Why this book?

I binge-read the first three books in this series in a matter of days. It is seriously incredibly to watch these two characters be thrown together. Both with dark pasts of their own, seeing them fight together toward a common goal is absolutely heartwarming even as it gets frustrating at times.

Why this book?

I cannot even begin to recommend this book enough! This entire series is the whole package. Epic heroes who live on mountain tops, a civilization that protects the rest of the world, and a man willing to do anything for the woman to whom he has given his heart. *Swoon*

Blood Oath

By Kelly St Clare, Raye Wagner

Book cover of Blood Oath

Why this book?

This was the first book I read from these authors and it completely captivated me. Drae, a seemingly normal woman plunged into an utterly abnormal–and dangerous situation–it was a completely binge-worthy series and one I re-read. The tension between the two main characters as they fight to deny what is between them is delicious

Little Fire: A Fantasy Romance (Warriors of the Five Realms)

By Hollee Mands

Book cover of Little Fire: A Fantasy Romance (Warriors of the Five Realms)

Why this book?

Steamy slow-burn with tension you can feel rolling off the page? This one is for you! This new-to-me author was an epic find and I cannot get enough. The world-building is beyond exceptional, the characters and their struggles–both physical and mental–are realistic even as it’s a fantasy! I one-clicked the rest of the series even before I finished the first book!
