Our werewolf themed ‘Lycanthrope Love-In’ gave us an excuse to read some more books featuring a host of yummy wolf shapeshifters. We’ve put together a list of some paranormal romance books featuring werewolves, which we recommend. The list includes those we have read and enjoyed during the ‘Love-In’ and others we have read in the past. Click on the links to take you to the relevant Goodreads page or the link to a review on ARR Blog if you want to find out more.
A Hunger Like No Other, Kresley Cole – This novel was the first that Tina read in Kresley Cole’s iconic Immortals After Dark series and after reading it she was so hooked that she swiftly devoured as many books in the series that she could get her hands on. This story pairs a dominant werewolf Lachlain MacReive with timid half vampire/half valkyrie Emmaline Troy, who find out that they are predestined life mates. This sounds fine perhaps until we find out that Laichlain hates vampires with every fibre of his being and for good reasons. Cue a great sexy story, full of passion and humour!
Books in the Psy/Changeling series, Nalini Singh – Some of these books feature wolf shifters as the hero/heroine. Kiss of Snow, which pairs the young, but dangerously powerful, Psy Sienna Lauren with Hawke, the alpha of the Snowdancer pack is one of my favourite (Tina). Hawke lost the woman destined to be his mate a long time ago, but is drawn to Sienna, whose volatile powers threaten to destroy her and those around her.
From Out of the Shadows, Linda Mooney – Tina loves this book! In it the heroine Tora is thrown into a dungeon by the henchmen of an evil baron. Not long after the henchmen return and badly beat up what appears to be a man. Tora is a sensitive (empath) and uses her powers to heal what she discovers is a half man half wolf, a Lupan named Croat. She is shocked to learn that he has been put in the dungeon to break him so that he will acquiesce to the baron’s evil requests. Tora has been put there to tempt him, for if Croat is not fed, his Lupan side will come to the fore and he will be compelled to kill and devour her to survive. It is a dark and erotic fairytale and for adults only. Click her for Tina’s review.
The Mating (Law of the Lycans #1), Nicky Charles – This pairs wolf shifter Elise with a complete stranger, an alpha, to forge an alliance between packs. Marriage of convenience wolf- shifter style and the start of a great series.
Blood Moon Rising Trilogy (erotic), Karin Tabke – Blood Law #1 and Bloodright #2 – A sexy and erotic love triangle between a girl on the run, who has abilities she does not understand and two alpha wolf shifters, Raphael and Lucien. Falon’s life is initially on the line as she is a pawn in a blood feud between the brothers. She finds herself attracted to both of them and a key player in the survival of the wolves against their arch enemy the Slayers. Tina has yet to read Blood Vow #3, but her reviews of Blood Law and Bloodright can be found by clicking on the links.
The Heat (The Big Bad Wolf Series #1), Heather Killough-Walden – Wow a great book and there is still the rest of the series to read! Lily St Claire moves back to her hometown in Louisiana and finds herself being fought over by two very different alpha werewolves who both want her as their mate. Lily did not even know such a race existed. Oh, and there is also the small matter of a serial killer who has his sights on her too! Click here for our review.
And last but not least, we have a short story by Caroline Hanson, Bewitching the Werewolf, if you are looking for a short and fun werewolf paranormal romance! We hope you enjoy!
Tina and Caroline 🙂
