Catherine’s Recommendations

I’ve been off Paranormal Romance for a while now, but lately my love of it has kicked in with a vengeance and my rec’s this month reflect this. I would love to hear other readers’ rec’s about good PNR series I might have missed during my hiatus from it!

Kiss of Fury by Deborah Cooke ** [AMZBNSK]
I’ve always loved dragons so I couldn’t resist trying the Dragonfire series. I had a lot of fun with the heroine and hero in this book. The hero was so reluctant to find a mate that I couldn’t help but laugh while watching him get paired up with someone just like him–a runner.

Samurai Game by Christine Feehan ** [AMZBNSK]
I read this author in my early PNR days but gave her up because I kept getting frustrated by weak heroines and overbearing heroes. I decided to give her another try recently–this time trying a new series–and got hooked again.

I loved how strong yet subtle the heroine of this book was. She was perfectly matched with the hero and both of them balanced each other out while remaining tough as nails. I also loved that the heroine had such reverence for her culture and brought aspects of that into her romance. It was a great read.

Turbulent Sea by Christine Feehan ** [AMZBNSK]
The Drake Sisters series was another series I tried by this author recently. I didn’t love them all–and even DNF’ed one–but I really enjoyed this one. The hero and heroine were a strong pairing and I am a sucker for a dark, mysterious Russian with issues. 😉

Gideon by Jacquelyn Frank ** [AMZBNSK]
This is a new to me author that has me hooked. I’m really enjoying the Nightwalkers series and absolutely loved this pairing. I was a little skeptical about the hero initially since he was so remote but I warmed up to him easily.

    Turbulent Sea from Feehan is my favorite book of hers, ever! That Illia is something 😀

    Kiss of Fury sounds really fun, thanks for suggesting it :)

    Catherine have you caught up with Nalini’s Psy? This last one is… wow, just wow. The same with Kresley Cole’s Macrieve.

      Yes, I read Heart of Obsidian and thought it was fabulous but I haven’t read Macrieve yet. I’m glad to hear it’s a good one!

    I loved the Jacqueline Frank series! Christine Feehan can be hit or miss for me. I loved the first books in her “Dark” series, but the last couple not so much and I didn’t like her other series.

      The Dark series is the that I used to read by Feehan and got tired of. I contemplated attempting it again just to see if I’d like them again but there are so many in the series now that the thought exhausts me.
