Paranormal Romances That Will Make You Shiver
Halloween is in the air. The scent of bonfires, apple cider, fallen leaves…and pumpkin spice fill autumn’s cool, crisp air with spicy aromas.
Spooky, cooky, creepy and frightfully fantastic décor is everywhere and there are so many Halloween events to attend.
The days are shorter and the nights are longer.
What better way to fill those long nights than with books?
At this time of year many love to read spooky stories. Including me, though you know I love my paranormals all year round.
I grew up reading horror novels Dean Koontz, John Saul and the king of horror himself, Stephen King but the scary scenes that have stuck with me are from two series that are not really labeled as horror.
The Sign of Seven Trilogy by Nora Roberts had scenes so creepy I got freaked out one night and had to put the book down. After that I would only read that series during the day…with other people around. The same thing happened with Amanda Stevens The Graveyard Queen series, especially The Kingdom. Scenes in that book still give me chills.
