7 Paranormal Romance Authors Share Their Recent Faves

So often, you hear what your favorite authors are writing and publishing. Well, here I’ve collected the books that author friends and I have recently read and recommend to you. Go forth, and find some great new books to check out!

PNR Authors Recommend covers

1. I recommend Meow by Skye MacKinnon. This is the first urban fantasy in her Catnip Assassins series, and it features TONS of cats! Oh, and the heroine is a cat shifter. Which, as we all know, is awesome. You can find Meow on all retailers. My most recently published book is Ruthless Knight.

2. Keira Blackwood, author of Dragon Guardian of Water, recommends Blow Me Away by Christina Hovland. Keira says, “Take a sexy florist hero who likes to dance while working shirtless, add a heroine who bakes cock-shaped cookies, and I’m interested. Throw in a fake relationship and an over-the-top meddlesome grandmother, and I’m hooked. Blow Me Away manages the perfect balance between sweet, sexy, and ridiculous.” You can find Blow Me Away on Amazon

3. C.D. Gorri, author of The Enforcer, recommends Goldilocks and Her Harem of Bears. C.D. says, “I thought this book was told amazingly well. It is a unique and quirky retelling of a classic fairy tale and it rocked. I love pretty much everything P. Mattern writes and this was no different. I highly recommend.” You can find Goldilocks and Her Harem of Bears on Amazon, Google Play, and Kobo.

4. TJ Finn, author of Dangerous Love, recommends Rebel by Helen Hardt. TJ says, “Helen Hardt is a master at bringing her characters alive and has me falling for even the who I think is the worse/antihero. She gives me all the feels when I read her stuff.” You can find Rebel on all retailers.

5. Natalie Aejaz, author of Lion’s Heart, recommends Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward. She says, “Love him or loathe him, Zsadist is the reason I would recommend this book. An angst-ridden character, he is given a chance at happiness with Bella, but can he move on from a horrific past?” You can find Lover Awakened on Amazon.

6. Michelle Fox, author of Motherducking Magic, recommends Carrie Pulkinen’s License to Bite. She says, “It’s light, it’s fun, it’s all my favorite things that go ‘bump’ in the night. Just the kind of distraction I need right now with everything going on!” You can find License to Bite on Amazon.

7. Carrie Pulkinen, author of Shift Happens, recommends The Vampire Wants a Wife, by Andie M. Long. She says, “It’s a quick, light-hearted read about vampires and other supernatural beings. It had me giggling quite a few times, and I just really enjoyed it! Such a fun read!.” You can find The Vampire Wants a Wife on Amazon.

I know I added a few books to my list–how about you? Find anything new you want to try? Let me know in the comments! ❤

Shifter PNR Authors’ Fave Summer Reads

Fave Summer Reads

At the start of the season, summer reading lists were posted all over the place. Maybe it’s time for some follow-up now that we’re reaching summer’s end! I reached out to a few of my fellow authors of shapeshifter romance to ask them each for one favorite book.

Kara Lockharte

Kara read Billionaire’s Wake Up Call Girl by Annika Martin. She says, “This was super fun, sexy and and hot. I am a sucker for good banter, enemies-to-lovers, AND secret identities. This had ALL my trope buttons in a well-written package.” (Liza’s note: I went to check the book out on Amazon. Just to peek. I read the description, then I started the “look inside.” And I triple-dog-dare you to do the same and NOT one-click this book. I’m absolutely hooked.)

Kara’s most recent shifter book is Betrothed to the Dragon.

Ophelia Bell

Ophelia’s favorite shifter book this summer is Their Royal Compromise by Godiva Glenn. She beta read it and loved it. She says, “Godiva matches up a curvaceous Fianni (the fae aspect of harmony) with three super hot dragon shifters. The story has a wonderful balance of heat, emotion, tension, and well-crafted characterization that made me fall in love with every single character. Also dragons.”

Ophelia’s most recent shifter book is The Way to a Bear’s Heart.

C.E. Black

C.E.’s favorite summer read was Night Shift Witch by Cate Lawley. C.E. adds, “Cate is a new to me author and I found her story, Night Shift Witch, to be delightful and hilarious. It really was the best combination of paranormal and mystery.”
C.E.’s most recent title is Makeshift Mate.

McKenna Dean

McKenna read Rosanna Leo’s Predator’s Kiss. She writes, “I loved the idea of a shifter resort run by tough-guy Ryland Snow. The interaction between him and his bad-boy brother was fantastic, but when a reclusive erotic romance author stumbles upon the shifter hideaway, all hell breaks loose! A really fun read!”
Her most recent shifter book is Ghost of a Chance.

Keira Blackwood

Keira’s fave summer read was You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day. Keira says, “A memoir of an anxious and ambitious nerd girl, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is entertaining, raw, and relatable, while also inspiring.”
Keira’s most recent shifter title is Can’t Prove Shift.

Liza Street

Well, it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t answer my own question! My favorite read this summer was Lili Valente’s contemporary sports romance, Hot as Puck. I love me a good hockey romance, and this one did not disappoint. It had banter and feels–the best combination in a romance, and in some places it was laugh-out-loud funny!
