Love Potion #9: 14 Paranormal Romances is an e-book anthology. Like Mischief Under the Mistletoe, it offers a pile of stories at an incredible price – currently just $2.99. However, it has an even greater variety of storylines and heat levels. Lengths vary, from short stories to novellas to complete novels – another source of variety.
The only common thread is some paranormal aspect to the story. Paranormal means different things to different people, and these stories show some of the many possibilities. There are werewolves and witches, and people chosen to save humanity from otherworldly monsters, but there are also ordinary people just trying to get by, with the help of an occasional magic potion. As might be expected, many of these stories have grim elements, but there are also lighter moments and humour. I enjoyed some of these more than others, but I truly appreciated having these on my phone, and not just because of poor bus service. If you like paranormals, you’ll like at least some of these, and if you are not sure, this is a great way to test the waters.
