What ingredients are needed for a successful paranormal romance? Mix a secret society with Celtic mythology; add in a heated second chance romance and strong, sexy characters. BAM…you have the recipe for Braving Fate the first novel in the Mythean Arcana series by Lindsey Hall.
Grave Vengeance is the third book in the Grave series by author Lori Sjoberg. Each of these paranormal romances deals with a new reaper who works for Fate collecting souls and stopping evil. Grave Vengeance features the haters to lover’s trope. Action packed with swoon-worthy moments, suspense and delicious banter I had a blast on these dates.
Blood Magick is the final book in the Cousins of O’Dwyer trilogy and I was anxious for Branna and Finn’s story almost as much as seeing if the witches would finally end the evil that haunts them. While each book deals with one couple, the overall ARC makes it necessary to read this trilogy from the beginning to appreciate the quest. Blood Magick was beautifully written and had moments that made me swoon.
The Cemetery Tours series is turning out to be great fun. Between Worlds by Jacqueline E. Smith is the second paranormal adventure in the series and I quickly consumed it. These ghostly mysteries are light, with a slow burning side of romance, humor and Ghost Hunter TV.
Earlier this year I read and enjoyed the first novel in the Mind’s Eye series about psychic detectives Levi Wolf and Trudy Tucker. In Through His Touch, their relationship continues to grow as someone is killing off women in Levi’s life. Heavy on romance and Levi and Trudy’s romance this romantic paranormal suspense was engaging with fleshed out characters.
I have always wanted to try one of Molly Harper’s books and when the chance to review Better Homes and Hauntings audio arose, I jumped. I love paranormal woo-woo with haunted houses, family lore and island settings. Harper offered up a simple, entertaining tale that will have you rooting for the characters and wanting to defuse a ghost.
Allegiance is the fourth novel in Susannah Sandlin’s Penton Legacy series, and I was eager to get back to this small-town and its characters. Sandlin’s paranormal romantic suspense series has been intense from the first book, with fleshed out characters, and an action-backed plot. While Sandlin does a great job of filling in the details, I highly recommend reading the Penton series in order. Each tale continues the overall arc and tells the story of one couple. Allegiance grabbed me from page one, and had me holding my breath, swooning and laughing.
