Now that the entire world is on lockdown due to COVID-19, you need books to read. My favorite romance genre is paranormal, and I thought I’d suggest some very good books to help you avoid cabin fever. What are your favorite paranormal creatures? I like shifters, especially werewolves. I also like hauntings and ghosts. There are many different types of paranormals to choose from – vampires, werewolves, ghosts, zombies, psychics, mermaids and mermen, aliens, faeries, demons, angels, and witches. Then there are the many different types of shifters ranging from animal to mythological creatures. So much to choose from!
A good paranormal always gets lots of positive attention. Now where to begin to look for one? Get out some candles, draw yourself a soothing bubble bath, and dive into the water with a good romance like the very popular ones listed below. Blurbs are courtesy of GoodReads.
Pleasure Unbound (Demonica #1) by Larissa Ione.
In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life . . .
She’s a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.
Two lovers will dare to risk all.
Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his quest to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable-and let Tayla possess him, body and soul . . .
Fury (New Species #1) by Laurann Dohner
Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments. Company scientists have spliced human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such “experiment” captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him—even if he hates her for it.
Fury has never known compassion or love. He’s spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. Now he’s free and set on vengeance. He vows to end her life but when she’s finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.
Fury can’t resist Ellie—the touch of her hands, her mouth on his skin, her body wrapped around his. He’s obsessed with the scent of his woman. And Ellie wants Fury—always has. She craves his big, powerful body and wants to heal his desolate heart.
But loving Fury is one thing…taming him is another.
Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood #1) by J. R. Ward
The only purebred vampire left on the planet and the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who killed his parents centuries ago. But when his most trusted fighter is killed—orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fate—Wrath must put down his dagger and usher the beautiful female into another world.
Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasn’t there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes. His tales of the Brotherhood and blood frighten her. Yet his touch ignites a dawning new hunger—one that threatens to consume them both…
Tempting The Beast (Breeds #1; Feline Breeds #1) by Lora Leigh
Callan Lyons is a genetic experiment. One of six fighting for freedom and the survival of their Pride. Merinus Tyler is the reporter who will tempt him, draw him, until the fury of the “mating frenzy” locks them into a battle of sexual heat there is no escape from.
Deception, blood, and the evil Genetics Council are hot on their trail. Callan will use his strength to try and save them both…and do all in his power to keep his woman in the process.
Night Pleasures (Dark-Hunter #1)_ by Sherrilyn Kenyon
See how it all began…
Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to be immortal? To journey through the night stalking the evil that preys on humans? To have unlimited wealth, unlimited power?
That is my existence, and it is dark and dangerous. I play hero to thousands, but am known to none. And I love every minute of it.
Or so I thought until one night when I woke up handcuffed to my worst nightmare: an accountant. She’s smart, sexy, witty, and wants nothing to do with the paranormal.
My attraction to Amanda Devereaux goes against everything I stand for. Not to mention the last time I fell in love it cost me not only my human life, but also my very soul. Now I find myself wanting to believe that love and loyalty do exist.
Even more disturbing, I find myself wondering if there’s any way a woman can love a man whose battle scars run deep, and whose heart was damaged by a betrayal so savage that he’s not sure it will ever beat again.

Whether you prefer a serial or a stand-alone novel, there are plenty of paranormal erotic romances to choose from. I’ve named a few of the best. I’m excited about paranormals since my own paranormal erotic romance is going to be released very soon. “Full Moon Fever” features sexy werewolves who travel with a theater troupe.
Full Moon Fever by Elizabeth Black
William Shakespeare said, “All the world’s a stage,” but he hadn’t counted on shifters under a theater’s hot lights. Lovers, Sam Hightower and Grant Newsome, lived for the stage. Although they have enjoyed the wanderlust of traveling theater for many years, each had grown tired of the road and wanted to settle down. They also have a secret. As shifters and no part of any pack, they are lone wolves in every sense of the word. The full moon brings out the beast in them.
Even though their work as gaffers – lighting techs – put them in contact with a large variety of willing, sexy men and women to share their love, they preferred men. They found a dancer, Luke Pearce, who made their blood run hot, but Luke had a secret of his own to test them. Add scenic artists and lovers, Charlotte and Lina, to the mix, and you have a wild and sexy fivesome.
To spoil their fun and to their surprise, Sam and Grant discover another shifter in their midst, but this young person is so inexperienced and terrified she could expose them to the human hunters and get them killed. How can Sam and Grant protect themselves as well as the people they love?
Try to make the most of a bad situation. Make it a little easier with romantic novels to while away your hours.
