Will The Witcher change Romancelandia?

By a Bookseller

Have you seen The Witcher on Netflix yet? If you haven’t watched this show then get on it. It has a broody damaged hero that battles monsters, has magic and….believe it or not…..humor. Every time Geralt of Rivia says “fuck” I swoon…..hard.

The Witcher has reignited my love of all things Paranormal Romance. I remember the early days of Sherrilyn Kenyon, Gena Showalter, Kresley Cole, Karen Marie Moning, Nalini Singh, Laura Adrian, JR Ward and so many others. It seemed that there was a new PNR release every Tuesday I just HAD TO HAVE.

Now, I wait for my book from the Warden, Nalini Singh or Gena Showslter once a year. Twice if I’m lucky. PNR just isn’t as popular anymore.

The last 8 years or so has seen a shift in Romance to contemporary romance. Trilogy’s and duets with cliffhangers, BDSM and so much angst.

Indie authors have stormed the castle and given readers so many amazing choices we never had before. Sure, there are some PNR and Fantasy indie authors out there. But the selection isn’t what it was back in the early to mid 2000s.

BUT…..I recently read War of Hearts by S. Young and was absolutely blown away with it. The world building, the strong heroine, the uber alpha werewolf hunting her. This book is what I’ve been waiting for. It reminded me of the first time I read A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole. I was caught up in the pages and transported all over the world. Reading about fantastical characters that could do extraordinary things.

I also read Cowboy in Wolfs Clothing by Kait Ballenger this last year. I’ll be honest with you. I’m not a fan of the title. The cover is hot but in my opinion the publisher went with the “campy romance” feel. But when you read this book it’s ANYTHING but campy. It’s dark and twisted and the hero is NOT you’re typical textbook “good guy”. He’s done some not so good things and is looking to change that. The entire world that Ms Ballenger built for this series is complex, full of intrigue and I couldn’t put it down.

Could these new series be a sign of great things to come???

I’m holding onto hope that The Witcher will usher back an explosion of Paranormal Romance. I know I’ve missed it. How about you?

❤️COVER REVEAL❤️

STONE PRINCESS
Tin Gypsy #3

Release Date: May 5th, 2020
Cover Design: Hang Le
Purchase Details: www.devneyperry.com/books/stoneprincess

Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride. Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.

Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.

At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.

The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.

But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down.

🔥COVER REVEAL🔥


My whole life, I did everything right.


Went to church. Chased the bad guys. 


Followed the rules.


Until I met her.




With looks as classic as a red rose and a mind as sharp as its thorns, 




Nina Gardner went from dalliance to obsession in a single night.




I’d stop at nothing to find her again, to make her mine.



Then I find out:


She’s the daughter of the wealthiest family in New York. 

Property of the scum of the earth.

And the subject of my next investigation…is her husband.

Which makes me…the other man.

Well, I don’t think I can live with that.

Because now, I don’t think I can live without her.

Blurb:
Jackson Thorn was my best friend and worst enemy, but that didn’t stop me from wanting him.

From first words to high school halls, our childhood years braided a bond that wove in a direction neither of us could predict or outgrow.

Forbidden became a word we ignored.
It wasn’t that we didn’t care.
It was that we cared too much.

We had it all planned out.
We thought we could make it.
We thought we’d been careful.
But all we managed to do was prolong the inevitable.
Our destruction.

Hearts and Thorns is a standalone full length new adult novel from bestselling author, Ella Fields.
