laugh out loud while reading paranormal romance

A guide by Shannon C. "Reviewer" (USA)

Products sampled from this guide:
Hi, I like paranormal romance and urban fantasy--both the dark stuff and the lighter reads. It's nice to have some laugh-out-loud funny novels to read between the darker novels. If you are looking for humorous paranormal romance, look no farther! Check out the list below, which contains some of my favorites. Happy reading!


SHELLY LAURENSTON'S Pride Stories series are my top favorites in the humorous paranormal romance genre. They are hysterical and I love the characters and stories. All about shapeshifters, the series includes (in order, first to last):
The Mane Event
The Beast in Him
The Mane Attraction
The Mane Squeeze
Beast Behaving Badly
Her Magnus Pack series is also very funny, but I didn't like it quite as well as the Pride Stories series. I didn't connect with the female lead characters as well in the Magnus series.


ERIN MCCARTHY's Vegas vampire series are funny, light hearted novels with appealing characters and interesting storylines. The series is one of my favorites in the humorous PNR genre. The books in order:
High Stakes (Vegas Vampires, Book 1)
Bit the Jackpot
Bled Dry
Sucker Bet
First Blood (anthology)
Out of the Light, Into the Shadow (anthology)
I also tried some of her contemporary romances, like "The Pregnancy Test" and "You Don't Know Jack" and also found them to be funny, entertaining reads.


LYNSAY SANDS' early Argeneau vampire series books are also some of my favorites. I love the matchmaking mom--she's hilarious. The series includes (in order):
A Quick Bite (Argeneau Vampires, Book 1)
Love Bites
Single White Vampire
Tall, Dark & Hungry
A Bite To Remember
Bite Me If You Can
The Accidental Vampire
Vampires Are Forever
Vampire, Interrupted
She also has a spin off Rogue Hunter series, which is humorous but not quite as good as the original series.


CHLOE NEILL'S Chicagoland Vampires series are some of my favorite books by a new author. Couldn't put them down -- they are keepers! An excellent new urban fantasy series, it had many snarky, fun moments with sarcastic humor. I like the leading character Merit as well as the supporting cast. And the romantic tension with master vamp Ethan is just yummy. Can't wait for the next book!
Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires)
Friday Night Bites
Twice Bitten
Hard Bitten


NICOLE PEELER'S Jane True series reminds me in style to Sookie Sackhouse. Quirky, fun, interesting characters and a fast moving plotine. Good mix of adventure, suspense, mystery, humor and romance. Great world builing--I loved the range of the types of characters, e.g. gnomes, vampires, kelpies, shapechangers, selkies, goblins, succubus, alfar and more.
Tempest Rising (Jane True)
Tracking the Tempest
Tempest’s Legacy


KERRELYN SPARKS' Love at Stake books are a good mix of action, suspense, humor and romance. With many appealing characters, the series focuses on good vampires fighting the bad vamps (malcontents). Series order:
How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire (Love at Stake, Book 1)
Vamps and the City
Love at Stake Book Two
Sugarplums and Scandal (Novella “A Very Vampy Christmas”)
Be Still My Vampire Heart
The Undead Next Door
All I Want for Christmas is a Vampire
Secret Life of a Vampire
Forbidden Nights with a Vampire
The Vampire and the Virgin


CHRISTINE WARREN'S Others series are humourous, light books about shapeshifters, vampires, witches and more. These lean to the erotic side. Series order:
Wolf at the Door (The Others, Book 1)
She's No Faerie Princess
Demon You Know
Walk on the Wild Side
One Bite with a Stranger
You're So Vein
Big Bad Wolf


KATIE MACALISTER'S Dark Ones series are light, humorous vampire romance books:
A Girl's Guide to Vampires
Sex and the Single Vampire
Sex, Lies, and Vampires
Even Vampires Get the Blues
The Last of the Red Hot Vampires
Zen and the Art of Vampires
Crouching Vampire, Hidden Fang: A Dark Ones Novel


KATIE MACALISTER'S Aisley Gray series are about a Guardian learning how to guard a magic portal and protect the world from evil, and her dragon shapeshifter mate. Full of zany humor, the books are light, enjoyable reads. The series (in order):
You Slay Me (Aisling Grey, Guardian, Book 1)
Fire Me Up
Light My Fire
Holy Smokes
There is also a spin off Silver Dragons series, which I did not like quite as well as the Aisley Gray books.


G.A. AIKEN'S popular Dragon Kin series are engrossing, hard to put down books with humor, action, violence, suspense and romance. Set in a fantasy world, these books are focused on dragon shifters. The series includes (in order):
Dragon Actually (Dragon Kin, Book 1)
About A Dragon
What a Dragon Should Know
Last Dragon Standing
G.A. Aiken also writes under the name Shelly Laurenston.


DANA MARIE BELL'S Halle Pumas series are pretty good, light beach reads--appealing characters and humorous dialogue. They tend to be more on the erotic side. She also has a new series about the Fae and a spin off Halle Shifters series.
The Wallflower (Halle Puma Book 1)
Sweet Dreams
Cat of a Different Color
Steel Beauty
Only in My Dreams


KATHY LOVE'S Young Brothers series are light hearted, sometimes funny reads featuring vampires and werewolves.
Fangs for the Memories (The Young Brothers, Book 1)
Fangs But No Fangs
I Only Have Fangs for You
My Sister is a Werewolf
Any Way You Want It
I Want You to Want Me
Demon Can't Help It
What A Demon Wants


GENA SHOWALTER'S Tales of an Extraordinary Girl books are about Belle, an ordinary girl who picks up special powers after accidentially ingesting a scientist's formula. Her love interest is a sexy shapeshifter. Full of humor, the books are fast paced and hard to put down:
Playing with Fire (Tales of an Extraordinary Girl, Book 1)
Twice as Hot
Showalter also authored the well known Lords of the Underdark series and Atlantis series.


MARYJANICE DAVIDSON'S Queen Betsy books are quirky, humorous and sometimes silly vampire books. Series (in order):
Undead and Unwed (Queen Betsy, Book 1)
Undead and Unemployed
Undead and Unappreciated
Undead and Unreturnable
Undead and Unpopular
Undead and Uneasy
Undead and Unworthy
Undead and Unwelcome


MARYJANICE DAVIDSON'S Wyndham Werewolves series are funny, light stories around werewolves. Reading order:
Love's Prisoner (Secrets 6 anthology)
Jared's Wolf (Secrets 8 anthology)
Derik's Bane (Berkley Sensation)
Santa Claws (Nicely Naughty anthology)


MARY HUGHES' Biting Love series are humorous, sometimes silly erotic paranormal romances. Good beach reads. I especially enjoyed Biting Nixie, which can be read as a standalone if you want to give my favorite a try. Series order:
Bite My Fire
Biting Dracula a free short story (on the author's website for download)
Biting Nixie (Biting Love)
A Biting Christmas Special a free short story (on the author's website for download)
The Bite of Silence a novella
Biting Me Softly: Biting Love Book 3


TATE HALLAWAY'S Garnet Lacey series is simliar in style to the Queen Betsy series. They are quirky, fun vampire and witch tales.
Tall, Dark & Dead (Garnet Lacey, Book 1)
Dead Sexy
Romancing the Dead
Dead if I Do
Honeymoon of the Dead


ROSEMARY LAUREY'S Vampire series are fun, light reads with appealing characters. Great summer reading!
Kiss Me Forever/Love Me Forever (The Vampire Series, Books 1 & 2)
Be Mine Forever
Keep Me Forever
Midnight Lover


VICTORIA LAURIE'S Abby Cooper series are light, humorous mysteries focused on a psychic who assists the police and FBI with investigations. These don't have as much romance as the other books listed above.
Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye (Psychic Eye Mysteries, Book 1)
Better Read Than Dead
A Vision Of Murder
Killer Insight
Crime Seen
Death Perception
Doom With A View
A Glimpse of Evil
She also has a Ghost Hunter Mysteries series, which I haven't read yet.
