Romance 101: Paranormal Romance + Giveaway

Posted February 15, 2019 by Francesca in Front Page, Random Thoughts, Under the Covers / 30 Comments

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!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

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.

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. 🙂

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.

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.

I do love PNR, urban fantasy and sci-fi romances. This is the type of book I prefer to read/listen to and I’m always on the look out for more of these.
