I don't read that many Historical Paranormal. My favorite Paranormal Romances always have know worlds. No one is has to be introduced to the Others and come out of shock. I think many members of the Historical Paranormal world would need to be revived so I tend to stay away from this sub genre. However, there are many wonderful books to be found here and I have managed to find them!
My list are never in any particular order. Enjoy Regency Romance: Paranormal Style!
