An Ode to the Romance Novel

In Depth

Some people are attracted to brooding loners hiding dark secrets, and in stories where paranormal entities are involved, these characters often reveal themselves to be wildly alluring creatures, such as werewolves and vampires. If you're looking for books that feature high-octane action and steamy, intimate scenes, then here, in no particular order, are ten dangerous and enticing paranormal romances.

First up, at #1, we have "Lancaster House" by Taylor Dean. Looking for a fresh start, interior designer Zoe Grayson purchases an old, rundown Victorian mansion, which she's determined to renovate and sell for a profit. Over time, strange things happen around her, and she learns that the house's builder, Mr. Lancaster, is still somehow alive and secretly living with her. She soon ends up in a psychiatric hospital, where she must convince people that the events she's witnessed in the mansion actually happened.

Next, at #2, is "Wolf at the Door" by Sofia Grey. After breaking up with her boyfriend, pop star Lillian decides to retreat to a remote cabin. Upon arriving there, an injured wolf shows up at her doorstep. She lets the creature in and nurses it back to health, but she soon realizes that it's actually a shapeshifter named Jake, the alpha of the Snowdonia pack. They quickly fall for each other, but they must tread carefully, as Lillian's popularity could expose the existence of wolf shifters.
