6 Paranormal Romance books for adults that I recommend

6 Paranormal Romance books for adults that I recommendIn October I did a post about 25 Urban Fantasy Books that I recommend and it was one of the most popular posts on the blog, so I want to do one about paranormal romance.

And I didn’t read before 1990, so unless someone recommend something older to me, I have not read it.
