Did you ever try Robin D Owens' Celta Tales series? They're a cross between a historical romance (in the culture) and fantasy (the world has magic/psy powers)...although the basic premise is that the people on Celta arrived on a spaceship 400 (Celtan) years earlier. It was originally listed as science-fiction romance, but the only science fiction in it is either in the past or the fact that one of the space ships remains in a park in the Celtan city of Druida.

These books are definitely romances first, and magic/fantasy/sci-fi second. I don't think they have the same richness as the Patricia Briggs or Nalini Singh books, but for whatever reason, they hooked me. I look forward to new releases every year.

The Look of Love is the first in the Sullivans series by Bella Andre. It is free right now at Kindle and Kobo US.

Kindle US: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0055UZO9M

Quote:
Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her in the middle of the rain storm must be too good to be true. Or is he?

As a successful photographer who frequently travels around the world, Chase Sullivan has his pick of beautiful women, and whenever he's home in San Francisco, one of his seven siblings is usually up for causing a little fun trouble. Chase thinks his life is great just as it is--until the night he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of the road in Napa Valley. Not only has he never met anyone so lovely, both inside and out, but he quickly realizes she has much bigger problems than her damaged car. Soon, he is willing to move mountains to love--and protect--her, but will she let him?

Chloe vows never to make the mistake of trusting a man again. Only, with every loving look Chase gives her--and every sinfully sweet caress--as the attraction between them sparks and sizzles, she can't help but wonder if she's met the only exception. And although Chase didn't realize his life was going to change forever in an instant, amazingly, he isn't the least bit interested in fighting that change. Instead, he's gearing up for a different fight altogether...for Chloe's heart.

THE LOOK OF LOVE is part of Bella Andre's New York Times and USA Today #1 bestselling series about The Sullivans. While it can easily be read as a stand-alone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the other books too.

SciFi is so not my thing or Fantasy really. I love Urban Fantasy though as long as it's not too dark. I prefer my paranormal to be set in the real world which is why I think I have a problem grasping Psy-Changlings series. I like Vampires, Shifters, Humans with Super powers set in normal earth with a few extra changes are okay as long as it's still feels like the world we live in. The Guild Hunter series is about as far I can go into Fantasy and still not feel like it's a whole different universe. The same with Harry Potter although it was set in it's own magical area it was still mingled with the real world.

Maybe one day I'll be able to come to love other worlds and science fiction beyond superheroes and J.D Robb but I am not there yet. Oh and SteamPunk I am not a fan of either. I've tried but it's just not for me.

I've read:
Guild Hunters series by Nalini Singh (Love it so much)
Loved At Stakes series by Kerrelyn Sparks (love it)
Chicagoland Vampires & spin Off (Love it)
Devil's Isle series by Chloe Neill (Love It)
Fever series by Karen Marie Morning (Love it)
NightWalkers series by Jacqueline Frank (Love it)
Midnight Breed Series by Lara Adrain (Love it)


DNFs
Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward (Didn't like it)
Immortals After Dark (Not for me)
Dark Ones by Katie MacAllister (Not For Me)
Elemental Assassins by Jennifer Estep (Got really boring)

Oh and J.D. Robb I had to stop reading because it's just tooo gory and too much of a police procedural. I really don't do serial killers or thrillers even in romantic suspense anymore.

Maybe this is why I read alot of historicals these days. I don't want to deal anything dark or has alot of death in it.

Blossom have you tried D.B. Reynolds Vampires in America series? One of my favorites, it's on my catch up list.

The earlier books in Lynsay Sands Argeneau series were kinda funny if you like the Kerrelyn Sparks books.

Not yet but it's on my TBR list. Lynsay's vampires were my first and I really need to go back to it. I'm on Thomas' book. The accidental vampire was too ridiculous for me which is why I stopped reading it but it's been a very long break.

Kerrelyn Sparks are my happy vamps. I just love the family aspect of the series. Everyone is one big happy family. Her new series is fantasy which doesn't appeal to me.

Blossom, I looked through my list and I have a couple of suggestions for you. I figured you probably would prefer series in which the paranormals are not "out" in the real world. That way the setting doesn't feel too far off of normal.

1) Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians series. I've read 5 or 6 of these and really enjoy them. I keep meaning to catch up. Each book has a good, strong romance and the world building has some similarities to Lara Adrian's series.

2) Jennifer Ashley's Shifters Unbound series. I don't know if you've ever read her Mackenzies historical series (ie, The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie). If you have and you liked it, you'd probably like these. The first book or two seem pretty uncomplicated, but she's now around 10-12 books in and keeps building up this world.

3) Molly Harper's Naked Werewolf series starting with How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf. These have cutesy covers and look humorous, but actually they are more serious. I liked this series more than her Jane Jameson one.

4) Paige Tyler's SWAT series. This one features a Dallas SWAT team that is composed of werewolves. They are getting to be a bit similar, but still fun to read and I really like the blend of action and romance. I'm not at all into romantic suspense and these definitely feel more like romance than suspense. She has another series featuring shifters called the X-Op series, but I tried one of those and it felt more like romantic suspense, so I didn't continue with it.

5) Sara Humphreys' Dead in the City series which features mainly vamps. She also has a shifters series, The Amoveo Legend, which I haven't tried yet.

I might have recommended one or all of these in the past - if so, sorry for repeating myself. Also, all of these series are through bigger publishers so there's at least a chance that you can find some of them at your library.

I don't know if anyone is interested but Harlequin Nocturne author Linda Thomas-Sundstrom is starting a traveling book club.
