Paranormal Romance is one of our favorite genres!
Paranormal romance books often blend fantasy, romance, and suspense.
Although there is a lot of variety in the genre, common elements are: supernatural or preternatural creatures, magical or heightened abilities, and an irresistible attraction between the main characters.
Sometimes urban fantasy has romance, but the difference is that the paranormal romances put more emphasis on the relationship. The plot of a paranormal romance novel is resolved if the couple gets together. In an urban fantasy novel, the plot is resolved if the main character achieves her goal of stopping a supernatural villain. However, there can be crossover.
