πŸ“š Favorite Books πŸ“š

Different world building! Just a nice mix of paranormal books with a bit of romantic suspense thrown in.

  • The Wolf Within Book One of Purgatory Series
  • Bite the Dust Book One of Blood and Moonlight Series
  • The Devil in Disguise Book One of Bad Things Series
  • Protecting Piper Book One of Wilde Ways Series

Nalini Singh:

This is one of those authors that you find and are so happy that you did! The stories continue into each other so reading in order is recommended.

  • Slave to Sensation Book One of Psy-Changeling Series
  • Silver Silence Book One of the continuation series Psy-Changeling Trinity

Ilona Andrews:

Seana Kelly:

  • Demon Ember Book One of Resurrection Chronicles

Sandy Williams:

Another rare find, took me into a world of space travel and strength.

  • Shades of Treason Book One of Anomaly Series

Shannon Mayer:

I have seen a lot of these going around now; but getting older myself for some reason had me all in for trying it out and I am very glad that I did! Were Bigfoots, Witches, Fae, Incubus - I mean really with so much thrown in how could things not go wrong?
