Paranormal Romance

Paranormal romance is a genre of romantic fiction. These books feature a supernatural theme or slant, with one of the main characters taking on the role of the supernatural character. This is often attributed to the male in the novel, with him being a vampire, alien, ghost or another type of otherworldly being. The novels typically have elements of fantasy and horror or science fiction along with the romantic elements. A large number of newer books in this genre are published in an online format.

The genre’s existed in a number of forms for years. For example, some claim that Dracula by Bram Stoker has elements of paranormal romance, though it wasn’t known by that name. The genre was officially defined in 1986 when Jayne Ann Krentz published Sweet Starfire. She’s known as the mother or founder of the genre, based on her book involving characters from another galaxy. There’s also Ann Rice and her books surrounding vampire romances such as The Vampire Lestat.

The popularity of the genre has only grown since then and now includes books published for teens and young adults. The Roswell High series of books focused on the romance between a young human and an alien boy. Stephanie Meyer has achieved more success with her short series of vampire romance books starting with Twilight. The series, which revolves around a teenager dating a vampire has sold millions of copies in just a few short years.

A large number of these books end on an unhappy note, with the two main characters never coming together. It’s considered a hallmark of this genre.
