From a sexy, dance-inspired debut to a fresh take on the green card romance to the launch of several crackling new series, the romance world had lots of steamy gifts to unwrap this year. It was also the year that romance joined the resistance. Authors such as Tessa Dare and Sarah MacLean used their writing to define modern happy endings, even in historical stories, with tales of protagonists who nevertheless persisted to find fulfillment with their best selves and those deserving of their love. Daria made a sparkling debut with the first novel in her Dance Off series, which uses a fictionalized version of Dancing With the Stars as the backdrop for romance. The book crackles with their chemistry, and Daria nails the behind-the-scenes drama of the dance and reality TV worlds. Come for the spot-on descriptions of the paso doble and the outrageous dance competition costumes, stay for the heartfelt romance about two people breaking down their barriers to forge a genuine connection in a world where reality is the furthest thing from it.
