Paranormal Romance = Take a walk with the unknown and experience irresistible supernatural stories.

I absolutely love the variety you can get from the paranormal romance genre! Before I became a fan of romance, I was all about fantasy/sci fi. Now I know there can be so much more to a paranormal tale. I love them all but especially love the witch stories. OH! and unusual shifter stories are awesome. What do I mean by unusual? Anything other than wolf or vampire. Yes, I still love them but when the shifter is, let's say a tiger, it frees the author up to use all sorts of different terms and descriptions to maximize the readers reading pleasure. Gotta love that. ~ Kim

Miranda (loveshistorical) | 3 comments I love this category, Kim. :-) Especially if it's Time Travel with the heroine going back in time to, let's say, Scotland (I know, I'm loving the Outlander series on Starz!!). I wish more authors would write paranormal romance. It's so much fun to read. ;-)

Off the top of my head, some of my favorite time travel books are The Masters of Time series by Brenda Joyce, Dark Lover (Rose Trilogy #3; Masters of Time #5) by Brenda Joyce , Dark Victory (Rose Trilogy, #2; Masters of Time, #4) by Brenda Joyce , Dark Embrace (Rose Trilogy, #1; Masters of Time Series, #3) by Brenda Joyce , Dark Rival (Masters of Time, #2) by Brenda Joyce , and Dark Seduction (Masters of Time, #1) by Brenda Joyce . Then there is The Juliet Spell by Douglas Rees which is a YA but my daughter said it was some quick, light reading and a fun storyline. And, this one, There and Now / Marriage at Circle M (includes Beyond the Threshold, #1) by Linda Lael Miller is couple years old but I still remember I enjoyed it. Oh, and one more that comes to mind is Home in Time for Christmas and An Angel for Christmas by Heather Graham . I love Christmas books. I know there are more but those are the titles I remember off hand.

Debbie (dhaupt) | 61 comments Yes I love The Brenda Joyce Masters of Time series and I read all of Heather Graham's novels way back when she wrote both historical and Paranormal under the name of Shannon Drake

Shannon (planetshannon) | 24 comments Paranormal Romances are usually the first ones I go for. I love werewolf stories (I devoured the Blood Runners series by Rhyannon Byrd), especially as they often have a sense of community.

Carrie Cox Just joined the group, I feel kinda silly, I didn't even know they had these. Paranormal romance...Oh man I have a never ending list of great books. If you have a kindle all of Nicky Charlie's books are free, and are great AND more then 100 pages ( I hate reading books with less then 150 pages, I need more!) I'm about to go check out Brenda Joyce's books....what else do you all love? I've got more suggestions if your interested.

Miranda (loveshistorical) | 3 comments I'll have to check out Brenda Joyce's books as well. I'm ashamed to say I've never read anything by her yet.

Miranda, never be ashamed! There are so many wonderful authors out there that it would be impossible to know which authors have resonated with a wide audience. And then, The Masters of Time is an older series so it wouldn't be featured much in book groups unless you went back into their archives.

As for more time travel recommendations, I KNOW there was one I read within the past few months but I can't think of the title for the life of me and I think my daughter or one of her friends have raided my bookshelves recently because most of my time travels are missing. I think I need to go hunt them down.

For more recent paranormal series recommendations, I've been following The Pack series, http://www.harlequin.com/store.html?c..., and the Lords of the Underworld series, http://www.harlequin.com/store.html?c...

I just finished reading a Carina Press paranormal, Monster in My Closet. It was more light-hearted than a Nocturne so if you've finished your Nocturnes for the month and are looking for something else to read, I suggest checking out Carina Press and seeing if any of them catch your eye.

Is anyone else reading Sharon Ashwood's newest series, Camelot Reborn? I adored the first book and the second is top of the list for books I plan to read this month.

The first:
Enchanted Warrior (Camelot Reborn #1) by Sharon Ashwood

and the second:
Enchanted Guardian (Camelot Reborn #2) by Sharon Ashwood

I've always loved King Arthur stories. Probably because of my love of historicals or maybe I get my love of historicals from King Arthur. My reading taste as a pre-teen was definitely fantasy based and I loved Merlin. LOL
