5 Favorite Paranormal Romance Tropes

5 Favorite Paranormal Romance Tropes We couldn’t let Valentine’s Day go by without talking about romance. For me, romance is comfort food all year long.

But a new year is a time for new beginnings, so we want to share some of our favorite series that have gotten a second life through self-publishing.

It’s set in a small town as it prepares for its annual Halloween festival. I loved how the sweater weather and changing leaves mirrored real life—I felt like I was a part of the story. Then I realized that the book came out in July. Reading it then might have been a completely different experience. That got me...
