If you are looking for a paranormal romance series to read during the Halloween season but you want to read something that is more sexy than scary, check out this series by Yvette Hines! She has taken fairy tale themes and given them an erotic paranormal twist featuring African American women. This series has been on my list for a while now and I am looking forward to diving into these!
Bear's Gold (Erotic Shifter Fairy Tales #1)
Riley Gold is on the run. Her ex-boyfriend has been stalking her for the last year and she can’t get out of Dodge, Oregon fast enough. However, she should have planned her escape better, and maybe she wouldn’t have ended up caught in a rainstorm, in the dead of night with a flat tire. Trapped in the woods and miles away from the next town, Riley sets off on foot to a large cabin home for help and refuge for the night. Is it just her imagination or is someone…or something following her?

As the father of two boys, it doesn’t leave him a lot of time to find a companion to help raise them. Low and behold, fate shines down on him and presents a sensuous woman at his door. Riley is cold, scared and in danger, but she just maybe exactly what he needs in his life. The erotic attraction between them can’t be evaded and soon they are swept under a tidal wave of euphoria.

Now, she’s trapped in the woods and drawn to a rugged mid-night blonde, onyx eyed handyman contracted to do work around the house. This man is no stranger to her, even if she’s suppressed those memories in her mind, her body knows. Years later, there’s still something about him that makes the hair stand-up on the back of her neck and her inner thighs sweat.
Cord Bjorn’s mate has finally come home again and this time the timing is perfect. With his father ruffling his fur about claiming his place in the county with a mate, Cord felt tied to a leash.
