Urban Fantasy: Straight, No Romance

This list is for some straight up, no holds barred, NO ROMANCE included Urban Fantasy.

We don't want no stinkin' Romance here! If there is a relationship, it MUST take place off page and NOT be a major factor in the plot.

When adding books, only add the first book in a series or a standalone. If you add a series book that is not a first book in a series, it will be removed.

NO ROMANCE
NO LOVE ANYTHING
NO SELF-PROMOTION (if you wrote it, don't add it!)
NO SELF-PUBLISHED BOOKS
NO SCIENCE FICTION

carol. As much as I like Discount Armageddon, I think that's a fail. There's definitely a romance.

Wow. Love how I'm now seeing your 2015 comment.

*facepalm*

I have Discount Armageddon but I never finished it: does the romance factor into the plot a great deal?


message 3: by carol. (new)

carol. Well, you know. Comments aren't as important as the latest release.

Pretty much paranormal. The heroine has moved to NYC to dance and monitor the local wildlife, which puts her into contact with the representative of the historical arch-enemy. They have an opposites-attract thing going on and end up working together to save the day.

In fact, never got this one. :(

Cheryl Great list of requirements. Truly, a lot of problems could be avoided if more list creators set up such for their lists.

Thank you! There was some trial and error - I wanted to keep the list functional and usable instead of becoming too big to manage.


MrsJoseph *grouchy* Removing "and Falling, Fly (Harrowing #1)" as it is PNR. No Romance!


MrsJoseph *grouchy* Removing "Control Point." No Science Fiction!


MrsJoseph *grouchy* Removing " Blades of Winter (Shadowstorm #1)." No Science Fiction!


MrsJoseph *grouchy* Removing "Monster in My Closet ". Reason: Romance
