What do you think about, when someone mentions the term Halloween? We usually conjure thoughts of haunted houses, scary costumes, and lots of candy. Now what if you were to intermingle scary with romance, what comes to mind? We think about paranormals, exactly!
I find paranormal romances have an appeal, to which I’m powerless to resist. Here is what I consider my top 10 best paranormal romances. These are books, which I refuse to part with. If you’ve read any from my list, feel free to post a “boo.” Any readers who’d like to add your own paranormals to my list; please do. It would be wonderful to hear suggestions to add to my TBR/TBB list. Here’s my list, grab some candy corn, and enjoy!
