Humorous Paranormal Books

Anita (AnitaW) | 141 comments I nominate this one:

The Mane Event (Pride, #1)
by Shelly Laurenston

Here's what I wrote as my review a couple days ago:
How did I not realize that this author is FANTASTIC?! I'm on the PNR discussion group all the time - why doesn't anyone rave about Shelly Laurenston? If you love paranormal romance, this one should be moved to the top of your to-read pile. The writing is funny and sexy, the stories interesting, and the characters so well written, you will fall in love with them and want to be their friends. I can't believe how many times I laughed out loud reading this book - and yet the sex scenes were still scorching hot. Really - you've got to read this one.

This a a paranormal romance set in contemporary NYC. The book is actually two interlinking novellas packaged together. Both novella feature shifter lions as the lead hero. The first features Mace pursuing his high school sweetheart Dez after a 15 year separation. The second features Brendon pursuing a wolf shifter named Ronnie. My summary is pretty dull, but trust me, the book is not. Really, PNR fans - try this one.

That sounds interesting. I will have to look into that. :)




Shannon C. | 69 comments Really? I even searched first to make sure I wasn't duplicating. For some reason it didn't come up.

That sounds interesting. I will have to look into that. :) Do you know if her other series are connected at all? It seems she has a couple of others. They are pretty reasonably priced on Kindle. I sent some samples to myself. :)




Erika (erikao) | 1 comments I loved both of Laurenston's series. Definitely recommended. She has two series that each have three books. The two series are loosely connected.

I originally created the other list and didn't specify the books had to be "romance", just paranormal. That might have been why you didn't see it. It can't hurt to have more than one list. :)


new_user | 1383 comments LOL, that's true. :)

Hi! I love Shelly Laurenston's Pride Stories. They are laugh out loud funny with quirky, engaging characters. Her Pride Stories include:
The Mane Event
The Beast in Him
The Mane Attraction
The Mane Squeeze
Beast Behaving Badly

She also has a related Magnus Pack series that was pretty good but not as great as Pride Stories. I didn't connect with the female lead characters as well, mainly because they were so bit*hy.

Her Dragonkin series written under the pen name GA Aiken are good reads:
Dragon Actually
About a Dragon
What a Dragon Should Know - My fav of the bunch. It was hilarious and I loved the characters.

Both the Pride Stories and Dragonkin have books coming out this year.

Thanks FlibBityFLooB! :)


Davina D. | 103 comments The Mane Event is very close to the top of my TBR. I'm really looking forward to trying this author. I've run into very few people who don't rave about her.


Rochelle (toastqueen) | 27 comments My favorite for humor is Katie MacAlister, many of her books were on the list.
She just makes me giggle...a lot!

Lynsay Sands Argeneau series is hilarous. There is not one book in that series I didn't crack up at. It is mostly pretty light also which is a great if you just finished a dark book. Plus the men are SOOO hot. Some of the parts I had to read twice because I was laughing so hard and I missed something


Nancy (NancyJCohen) | 74 comments I just finished a cute story DRAGONS PREFER BLONDES by Candace Havens. It has a kick-ass heroine and is written in a witty, breezy voice. I believe it's the second book in her Caruthers Sisters series.

I can recommend Jeri Smith-Ready's Wicked Game (sorry if you've already read this on the other thread). The heroine has a really dry sense of humour, and the hero is dim but hunky. My kind of series.

I'm always on the lookout for quirky main characters, so thanks for this thread!

I almost forgot about Wicked Game. You are right about the dry sense of humor. I think the 3rd book is comning out soon.

Do you remember in "Tall, Dark, and Hungry" where that poor guy, Chris, has a toilet fall thru the celling on him, then he gets stung by a bee, and last but not least, he ends up with food poisoning.
That was pretty funny stuff.




Heather | 239 comments Thanks Ladies for making me spend money at Borders! I just ordered the last two in the Grave series (Cat and Bones), plus Molly Harper's first Fang book and The Mane Event. Good reading coming up..

I agree. I love her books. Instant buy for me.




Chris | 2 comments Also, Gerri Bartlett, Michelle Rowan, Casey Daniels, Mary Janice Davidson (her Betsy Queen series or her mermaid series), Marta Acost, Michelle Bardsley, Molly Harper, Kimberly Raye, Dakota Cassidy, Karen Kelley, and Kathy Love.


Mlpmom (Book Reviewer) (MLPMomBookReviewer) | 755 comments H.P Mallory's series are pretty fun and very well written as well.


Darkand (DarkandStormynight) | 1 comments I agree with every single author Chris has listed and would like to humbly add Jill Myles, Linda Wisdom, Angie Fox, Kimberly Frost, Tate Hallaway, and Terri Garey.

Her series are connected. They'll all make you LOL. You should start with the Magnus Pack series, then the Pride series, then the Long Island Coven series. That's the order they go in. Each series can be read as a stand alone, so while you don't have to read them in order, I highly recommend it. The characters in each series carry over into the next series & it helps to keep who married into what pack/pride & who's related to who in order. Laurenston is my all time favorite PNR author. (KMM's good to, although Laurenston has more humor in hers, which I love). Her Dragon Kin series doesn't tie into any of the others series and neither does her Gathering series (of which she still has yet to write another book in...am impatiently waiting on it wink wink). Below is the link to her website listing her series. They're great!!!!

I didn't place the name write away but I really enjoyed Laurenston's Magnus Pack...the characters are spectacular. Witty, strong, enticing...a real joy to read.

Keri, what a coincedence, I'm waiting for PRIDE...only bc my library doesn't have PACK available, weird. Anywho, can't wait to read a new author.


Andre and Sophie (SophieM) | 165 comments i think it's kinda important to have humor in PR. Sometimes it can get kinda intense. I absolutely love the Night Huntress series! They're are so many moments that you could crack and then somebody says something like "Round 2 hours later, Don opened the lid. When I saw him I said 'Took your bloody time, old chap.' and he finally believed it was me though he informed me that a dehydrated piece of beef such as myself should be more respectful." BONES HAD JUST DIED SO I CRACKED UP ABOUT THAT!


Amber Hatfield (strwbrywn20) | 22 comments The Aisling Grey Guardian series by Katie MacAlister is hilarious! Steamy adult scenes, some mystery and a lot of laughs!


Missyb | 445 comments Sophie wrote: "i think it's kinda important to have humor in PR. Sometimes it can get kinda intense. I absolutely love the Night Huntress series! They're are so many moments that you could crack and then somebody..."

I love a lot of humor in my books. Bones & Cat and their witty banter was good.


Missyb | 445 comments Absolutely have to have humor in the books I read. the first series I read was the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands, and actually it was the Accidental Vampire (even though it's the 7th in the series) & it was hysterical. My Mom kept telling me little parts and eventually myself and three other ladies at work were all reading the series and laughing out loud.
I had not read a book other then one on JFK since I graduated HS 15 years earlier. The humor hooked me, that and the vampires.


Missyb | 445 comments Argeneau series by Sands
Night Huntress by Frost
Love at Stakes by Sparks
Mercedes Thompson by Briggs
Rachel Morgan by Harrison

All have that sarcastic humor in them.


Mlpmom (Book Reviewer) (MLPMomBookReviewer) | 755 comments H.P Mallory's series are really good too and full of humor. The first one if Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble.


Lisa M (lamessegee) | 248 comments I added:
Kiss at Your Own Risk by Stephanie Rowe Touch If You Dare by Stephanie Rowe
They're LOL funny!


Renee All of the Shelly Laurenston pack and/or pride series are hysterical. I laughed so hard at some of the antics and the conversations between characters.
They get my vote! LOL


Duchess Nicole | 138 comments Oh, what about the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews? She cracks me up, and the relationship between her and Curran is intense, hot, and hilarious. Fabulous series, if you've never read it. One of my top ten faves.
