Romance 101: Paranormal Romance + Giveaway

Valentine’s Day is almost here and we thought, what better way to celebrate than to talk about Romance!  We are starting a new series where we will be covering all topics related to the romance genre.  Kicking things off this week we will talk about subgenres, tropes and character types and give you some recommendations along the way.  This will be perfect for the newbie romance reader feeling a bit overwhelmed about where to start.  But maybe it may have some information that you may not have been clear on if you’re a seasoned romance reader.  After this week, this will become a monthly feature so please be sure to let us know what other topics you’d like us to cover!



Under the Covers is graciously giving away

Every day you get a chance to enter to win a different book!

“Leave a comment and tell us your favorite paranormal romance series.” How about the Twilight series? Yep, can’t get enough of pale, clammy vampires! That’s me!

Dawn M. Roberto

I adore paranormal romance/Urban fantasy romance and my favorite series in this genre is Kate Daniels series. One of the few I can reread over and over again.

Christine Feehan has some great PRN series that I adore. Pay-Changeling and some other PRN series are also wonderful reads. One of my fave sub-genre of all.

Dawn Dalrymple

This used to be one of my fave genres but haven’t read much of it lately. Fever series by Karen Marie Moning, JR Wards Brother Daggerhood series are 2 fave series!

Sophia Rose

Great explanation, Francesca. I love all your top five. I also enjoy Rebecca Zanetti’s Dark Protectors, Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity, SWAT and X-Ops by Paige Tyler, Grim series by Dani Harper, Children of the Sea by Virginia Kantra, a couple of Eve Langlais’ series like Bitten Point and Kodiak Point, and yeah, so many. 🙂

Love paranormal romance! Some of my favorites are the Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, the Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward, the Dark/Carpathian series by Christine Feehan, and the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness.

Kim Perry

I would say the Black Dagger Brotherhood is my favorite series.

Janie McGaugh

I have so many favorite PNR series. Sticking with your definition, some of my favorites are Kresley Cole’s Immortals after Dark series, Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series (though one could argue for SF romance with this one!), Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardians series, Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changling series (and her one-off books in her Guild Hunter series), and Karen Moning’s Highlander series.


The Phoenix Pack series & The Mercury Pack series from Suzanne Wright! <3

Elaine G

Keri Arthur’s Riley Jensen series is a favorite.

Mineliz Medina

This is one of my favorite genres too but like you mention sometimes is difficult to categorize a book in this category just because it has so many genres mixed into it.

Kristiana S

So far i only follow these series : Guild Hunter by Nalini Singh, Night Huntrees series and all it’s spin-off by Jeaniene Frost, Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward and Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I have read other series by various author, but all of above are my favorites 🙂

Nancy Jones
