If you’re a fan of paranormal romance like I am – and haven’t been too “naughty” this year – you’re in for a potentially unforgettable holiday season. With so many noteworthy paperback paranormal romances that have been released in the last few months – and that are about to be released – your stocking should be stuffed with one or more of these titles:
“They’re hot. Really hot… in a scary I’m gonna eat you for dinner kind of way.” – King of the Damned by Juliana Stone
• A Love Untamed by Pamela Palmer
Palmer’s latest Feral Warriors novel, the seventh in the series, is scheduled to be released the day after Christmas! What kind of torture is this?
The first book in Frank’s World of Nightwalkers series was wildly entertaining – and I loved how Frank fused together urban fantasy with Egyptian mythology. Fans of her previous Nightwalkers novels should love this new spin-off sequence.
If you’re a fan of grand scale storylines, you will love Day’s The Warriors of Poseidon series, in which a group of supernatural sentinels are tasked with protecting humankind. Heart of Atlantis is essentially Alaric’s (and Quinn’s) story – one that fans of the series have been waiting years for! And while it’s sadly the concluding book in this story arc, Day promises to return to the realm in the near future.
The second Paladin Warriors novel (after Deliver Me from Darkness) features the endearing character of Logan Calhoun, the last full-blooded Paladin, who is burdened with numerous responsibilities, not the least of which are protecting humankind and continuing the Paladin bloodline. But when a no-nonsense detective with a dark past enters his life, revelations abound for both of them… This series is surprisingly deep thematically and should appeal to anyone who enjoys supernatural-nuanced romantic suspense.
The second book in Arthur’s Ripple Creek Werewolf saga (after Beneath a Rising Moon), this series has been out for years in Australia and the UK… If you’re a fan of Jennifer Ashley’s Shifters Unbound, you will love these underappreciated novels!
This book was released in hardcover earlier this year – the very first Midnight Breed novel to be released in hardcover! – and the paperback edition of Darker After Midnight just hit the shelves. Fans of J. R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood looking for another super steamy vampire saga should definitely check out this excellent series!
With this many exceptional paperbacks on the shelves, I may need to purchase another stocking – or just hang up a pair of nylons instead!
