Vampires, Werewolves, and Shapeshifters, oh my! Easily one of the most popular genres of M/M, paranormal romances deliver romance with a bite–often from sexy, dominant men whose animalistic sensuality comes alive when they shapeshift into deadly predators. Teeth, fangs, paws, claws–even warlocks, incubi, and superpowers–all find their way into the bedroom in these spooky, sultry books, for when the moon is full or the spell is cast, anything is possible. Do you believe in love at first sight (or bite)? We do! Feeling the pull of destiny, paranormal heroes find their fated mates in the most unlikely of places, and often must fight to protect them from an equally powerful villain or battle for their trust when revealing their superhuman abilities to the man destiny has bound them to. For anyone who’s ever wanted an extra “bump” in the night, paranormal romance is for you!
