Paranormal Romance Recommendations

Take a shot every time I say ‘steamy’.

I LOVE PARANORMAL ROMANCE! I love the action, the romance and the characters. Has paranormal romance ruined me? Yep. No doubt about it. And while there are some ‘normal’ romance books I like, I tend to gravitate toward the paranormal stuff. (Maybe it’s because it’s more ‘acceptable’ for a man to be almost 7 ft tall with fangs?)

And to anyone that wants to say shit about the fact that I like to read romance – you can go sit in the corner and think about ways to broaden that little narrow mind. 

Paranormal romance is a book just like any other and it has become a thing to belittle people for not reading ‘worthy’ or ‘smart’ books. If you are one of those people, go f*ck yourself. 

ANYWAY, these series are in no particular order so ja. Enjoy!

Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward

BDB is one of my favourite and is very well known. J.R. Ward brings a crazy world of vampires to life filled with politics and gods. It’s crazy good and as the years have gone by I’ve just loved it more and more. The characters are great and the romance is STEAMY (#1). I love a good romance but I also need an interesting plot. J.R. Ward does this by creating her own awesome mythology and power structure.

Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood #1)


In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing more than Wrath, the leader of The Black Dagger Brotherhood.

The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed-leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate-Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.

Immortals After Dark by Kresley Cole

Remember how I mentioned that I love a great plot? Well, OMG. Immortals After Dark has an EPIC plot and then some more. Never mind the crazy (and I mean batsh*t crazy) and steamy (#2) romance. This series was my first *blush* and it definitely changed the way I saw romance, especially paranormal romance. The series has been running for years and yet, I’M STILL HOOKED.

The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark #1)


The Warlord Wants Forever… the sensually charged novella that started it all!

In this scorching series opener, #1 New York Times bestseller Kresley Cole introduces the captivating Immortals After Dark Series. 

The Warlord
Nikolai Wroth, a ruthless vampire general, will stop at nothing to find his Bride, the one woman who can “blood” him, making his heart beat and filling him with strength. Coldly interested only in the power his Bride will bring, he can hardly believe when Myst the Coveted awakens him body—and soul.

The Seductress
Famed throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, Myst has devoted her life to protecting a magical jewel and to fighting the vampires.Wroth provides her with the perfect opportunity to torment her sworn enemy—for with his new heartbeat comes a consuming sexual desire that can only be slaked by her. Denying him, she flees, struggling to forget his searing, possessive kiss.

The Hunt is on…
She eludes him for five years, but he has finally chased her to ground and stolen her enchanted jewel, giving him absolute power over her. Now that she’s his for the taking, he intends to make her experience first-hand the agonizing, unending lust she subjected him to for half a decade. Yet when Nikolai realizes he wants far more than vengeance from Myst and frees her, will she come back to him?

Fever by Karen Marie Moning

Let me just take a deep breath before I start here. SO, this series took me places I never expected to go. The action and plot is brilliant and I will always love me some fae stories. Besides that, Fever is, well… it kinda jumps out of the vanilla box. Our heroine is badass and deals with some heavy stuff and our hero is more of an anti-hero. The first five books focus on Mackayla and Jericho (their chemistry is explosive) but the rest of the series tells the stories of the other characters. 

oh, sorry. It’s steamy. (#3)

I’ll stop now.

Darkfever (Fever #1)

Paranormal Romance Recommendations
Paranormal Romance Recommendations

“My name is MacKayla, Mac for short. I’m a sidhe-seer, one who sees the Fae, a fact I accepted only recently and very reluctantly.

My philosophy is pretty simple – any day nobody’s trying to kill me is a good day in my book. I haven’t had many good days lately. Not since the walls between Man and Fae came down. But then, there’s not a sidhe-seer alive who’s had a good day since then.”

When MacKayla’s sister was murdered, she left a single clue to her death, a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone. Journeying to Ireland in search of answers, Mac is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to master a power she had no idea she possessed – a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae.

As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho…while at the same time, the ruthless V’lane – an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women – closes in on her. As the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: to find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book – because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control both worlds in their hands.

Psy – Changeling by  Nalini Singh

I would have to put Psy-Changeling on my shelf of ‘Best Worlds’. Nalini Singh is an amazingly imaginative person and it is clear in every book. Her depiction of the shifters and the psy is like ice and fire and the contrast and fills every book with blistering chemistry. The plot is intricate and full of amazing and interesting characters and steamy romance. (#4)(I’m sorry. I had to do it again.)

Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changeling #1)

Paranormal Romance Recommendations
Paranormal Romance Recommendations

Nalini Singh dives into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind-and none of the heart.

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of “rehabilitation” – the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was…

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion – and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities – or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation.

Fantasyland by Kristen Ashley

As the name states, this series is about a fantasy land. And some fantasy men. Swoon. This series has a more medieval feel and a slower build up. Is it worth the wait? YES! In fact, the build-up makes it all the better. I haven’t read all the books – I’m currently reading it in my spare time – but what I have read is fantastic.

Wildest Dreams (Fantasyland #1)

Call of Crows by Shelly Laurenston

Call of Crows completely took me by surprise. I haven’t read much about Norse mythology and it was so fun learning about that while following all the crazy characters. The first book was good but doesn’t do the rest of the series justice. I can’t wait for more books from this series.

And STEAMY!

The Unleashing (Call of Crows #1)

Paranormal Romance Recommendations
Paranormal Romance Recommendations

Kera Watson never expected to face death behind a Los Angeles coffee shop. Not after surviving two tours lugging an M16 around the Middle East. If it wasn’t for her hot Viking customer showing up too late to help, nobody would even see her die.

In uncountable years of service to the Allfather Odin, Ludvig “Vig” Rundstöm has never seen anyone kick ass with quite as much style as Kera. He knows one way to save her life—but she might not like it. Signing up with the Crows will get Kera a new set of battle buddies: cackling, gossiping, squabbling, party-hearty women. With wings. So not the Marines.

But Vig can’t give up on someone as special as Kera. With a storm of oh-crap magic speeding straight for L.A., survival will depend on combining their strengths: Kera’s discipline, Vig’s loyalty… and the Crows’ sheer love of battle. Boy, are they in trouble.

Phoenix Pack by Suzanne Wright

STEAMY!! STEAMY! SO STEAMY IT FEELS LIKE I AM IN A SAUNA IN THE SAHARA DESERT!

Enough said.

Feral Sins (Phoenix Pack #1)

Paranormal Romance Recommendations
Paranormal Romance Recommendations


If your inner wolf and your body react rather enthusiastically to a psychotic Alpha male who’s own wolf has a tendency to turn feral, it can’t be a good thing, can it? Entering into a bargain with him wouldn’t be good either. Unfortunately, Taryn Warner, a latent wolf shifter, doesn’t have many options open to her right now. Okay, she has no options. Basically it comes down to whether she’ll do what it takes to escape the arranged mating with the sick SOB that her father set up. As the answer in this case is yes, it looks as though she’ll have to agree to Trey Coleman’s deal… she’ll have to mate with him instead. 

Having always disliked shifter politics, Trey Coleman hadn’t bothered trying to form alliances with other packs. Now that his uncle – a wolf with many alliances – means to take Trey’s territory and his pack, he has no option but to form some alliances of his own very quickly or he’ll be easily outnumbered in the upcoming battle. He figures that the easiest way to do that would be to mate with a female whose Alpha is powerful and influential. There’s only one problem with that – he would then be stuck with her, and the last thing Trey wants is a mate. When he hears of Taryn’s situation, he offers her a deal – if she falsely claims he’s her true mate and allows him to claim her, he’ll save her from her arranged mating and then let her leave after the battle with his uncle is over. 

Sounds like a pretty straightforward deal…but soon Taryn and Trey realize they got more than they bargained for. Their mating instincts to protect and possess are weighing on them, they crave each other’s touch and company, and their inner wolves don’t like it whenever they’re apart. Add in that they’ll have to deal with this for an entire three months until the day of the battle finally arrives, and they’ve got themselves a recipe for disaster – or maybe for something quite the opposite. 

Warning: This novel contains an extremely sarcastic Alpha female, a broody possessive Alpha male, bitter in-laws, voyeuristic enforcers, a whole lot of dirty talk, and steamy bedroom battles for dominance. Reader Advisory: This book also contains a graphic ménage scene – not for the faint-hearted.
