NEW YORK (AP) — Romance readers can get a free peek at some of the year's hottest love stories.

"Buzz Books 2016: Romance" is an e-book featuring excerpts from 20 upcoming romance titles, including works by Mary Jo Putney and Kristan Higgins. It was released Thursday by Publishers Lunch, an online industry newsletter that also has assembled compilations of leading general fiction and nonfiction titles.

The new compilation comes out the week before the annual Romance Writers of America conference, to be held July 13-16 in San Diego.

Romance author/blogger Sarah Wendell wrote an introduction for the book, which features a wide range of subgenres, from historical romance to thrillers and Westerns.
