3 Excellent Paranormal Romance Novels

Don't miss these three excellent paranormal romance novels. These recent releases all earned 4.5♥ ratings.


Chained by Night

(Moonbound Clan Vampires, #2)

Larissa Ione


A page-turner. I loved the strong heroine and the sexy alpha hero. There was suspense, betrayal, and truly awful villains. I loved it from the first page to the last.
Leader of the vampire clan MoonBound, Hunter will do what he must to save his people from extinction—or worse, a torturous eternity as vampire slaves and subjects of human experimentation. To keep his enemies at bay, he has agreed to mate a rival clan leader’s daughter in return for peace between the clans and an ally in the looming war with the humans.


But survival comes at a price. First, Hunter must break an ancient curse by successfully negotiating three deadly tests. Then he must resist the searing passions of the gorgeous vampire warrior he despises but is bound to mate. Will Hunter stay true to his word? Or will he risk everything for the woman he really loves: the vampire seductress’s identical twin sister?


(Eternal Guardians, #7)

Elisabeth Naughton


Finally! Nick's story! And what a story it is! It's filled with tension, mystery, jealousy, heartbreak … and love.


NICK – Leader of the half-breeds and the last true hero. He’s spent his life fighting a dark pull toward the gods. A pull he now knows is linked to his father Krónos and the Titan’s plan to escape from the Underworld. 

But Nick’s hidden powers are coveted by more than just his father. Imprisoned by Hades, Nick battles every form of torture imaginable as the sadistic god schemes to break him. Only one thing is keeping him sane. One woman who gives him the strength to fight the relentless darkness. She has a dangerous plan of her own, though, and as Nick’s powers grow stronger, even she might not be enough to alter his destiny. 

As the fate of the world hangs in the balance, Nick’s allegiances are tested. And no one knows whether he will choose to fight for good or succumb to the sinister lure of evil. Not even him. 

Night Unbound

(Immortal Guardians, #5)

Dianne Duvall

There is lots of humor in this book, which is good. Because there's tragedy. But there's also joy and romance. Don't miss it. It's a game-changer for the series.

For centuries, Lisette d'Alençon has been a warrior against the dark. She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams start coming, she can't bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians' command. Dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a man her heart aches for--and a man she knows has been declared a traitor.

Zach is an exile, a loner. He won't defend himself against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in him. But he'll damn sure defend the woman who kept him sane against a plague of super-vamps that seems to have appeared from nowhere. The Guardians will blame him, and that will make Lisette suspect, too. With life, death and eternity on the line, who can they really trust?

Joy, Tragedy & Love: NIGHT UNBOUND by Dianne Duvall


(Immortal Guardians, #5)

by Dianne Duvall

Night Unbound by Dianne Duvall
 Rating: 4.5♥s Excellent
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel
Audience: Adult
Sensuality: Hot
Release Date: September 2, 2014

An Immortal Guardian…

Lisette is one of the few female Immortal Guardians. Her special gift is that she's a telepath. She has been drawn to Zach ever since she met him. Even when, previously, she was part of a group that captured and interrogated him.

And a mysterious, powerful being

Zach is...well, we don't know what Zach is. He's big, he's very powerful, he's ancient, and he has wings. He's an Other, but what's an Other? Seth, leader of the Immortal Guardians, used to be an Other but chose a different path and came to live among humans. Zach helped Seth in a previous book, and put himself in the cross hairs of the Others.

A deadly vampire army

Another vampire army has arisen, intent on taking down the Immortal Guardians. This new army is eerily similar to the one they wiped out before, which shouldn't be possible.  Seth believes Zach betrayed the Immortal Guardians, and Zach suffers the consequences. Lisette is warned to stay away from Zach.

When Zach returns—gravely injured—months later, Lisette can't stand by. She disobeys Seth and helps Zach. She believes in Zach, and believes they are meant to be together.

Humor, Joy, Tragedy, and Love

Throughout the book, Duvall weaves clever, fun humor. We need it, because the war continues and the stakes are raised.  The Immortal Guardians are in mortal danger. Mystery surrounds those behind the new vampire army.  Zach has a change of status, which takes the series in a new direction.  We learn some of Seth's background and see some things about him we've never seen before. There is joy. There is terrible tragedy. And there is great love.

We get an intriguing teaser as to what the Others might be, but is it a red herring? We can only wait and see!

If you haven't read this series, don't miss it! Start with Darkness Dawns. If you're already a fan, don't miss this game-changing book.

CRAVE THE NIGHT Earns 4.5♥s!


(Midnight Breed, #12)

by Lara Adrian


Crave the Night cover,  by Lara Adrian
 Rating: 4.5♥s Excellent
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Vampire
Length: Novel
Audience: Adult
Sensuality: Scorcher
Release Date: August 15, 2014

This review assumes some familiarity with the Midnight Breed series. If you haven't read the series, read it now!

 A forbidden love …

Nathan is a Gen One Hunter, a Breed bred and trained to be an emotionless killer. Twenty years ago he was rescued by Hunter and Corinne. Now he's captain of his own squad for The Order under Sterling Chase in Boston.

Jordana Gates is a Breedmate and a darling of Boston high society. Jordana's adoptive father is adamant that she be blood-bonded to a suitable Breed male by the time she's 25—just a few weeks away. But her father's choice of a mate doesn't make her blood run hot like the controlled Nathan does.

And Jordana makes Nathan lose control.

The love story between Nathan and Jordana is scorching, and gut-wrenching. Did I mention scorching? It bears repeating. You'll fall in love with Nathan right beside Jordana. The resolution of Nathan and Jordana's love story is both fun and satisfying.

The plot is full of mystery, murder, lethal danger, dangerous secrets, and secret identities. Once it grabs you, it doesn't let you go.

My guess is that the events in CRAVE THE NIGHT will ultimately be crucial to the overall story arc of the series. It's going to be an interesting adventure. Don't miss the book or the series!
