Not that I know much about parenthood, because I’m not a parent yet, but I saw my mom and my dad work so hard for me all through the years of my childhood, my teen years and now my adulthood, and really, they do so much for me, I cannot even thank them enough. I will never stop thanking them for everything they have done for me. And parenthood translates so well in these single parent romances I’m about to share with you.

We’re specifically talking about single parent romance books, and you won’t be able to stop adding them all to your TBR because they all sound (and are) epic and beautiful. You’ll fall for their kids and you’ll fall for their story.

Being a single parent doesn't mean that you also can't find some excellent love. Enjoy these 13 single-parent romances. book lists | romance books | single parent romances | books with single parents

This sweet seduction will surely be delicious…

Fumbled Alexa MartinFumbled by Alexa Martin

Everyone is talking about the newly-released Fumbled. It’s not only a single parent romance, but also features a second chance romance trope that I know people will also adore.

Poppy moved across the country when she was sixteen and pregnant. T.K., starting wide receiver for the Denver Mustangs, has his life figured out. He loves the NFL, parties, and women.

A Taste of PleasureA Taste of Pleasure by Chloe Blake

This delicious novel will transport you all the way to Italy. Chef Danica hopes that changing places is the way to go for new career beginnings. But then she meets sexy single dad and millionaire restaurateur Dante and the heat in the kitchen can’t be hidden.

While he wants stability and this new passion between them definitely looks way more out of control than he wanted, is she the one he has been waiting for?

Tempest by Beverly Jenkins

Big fan of Ms. Bev and Tempest is one of my ultimate favorite titles. It literally has every single trope you love: single dad, mail-order bride, heroine is richer than the hero, fun first meeting, historical romance with black leads, and so much more. You won’t regret picking it up.
