It can be hard to find books that have both fantasy and romance in them, no matter which is the main focus. So, I thought it might be nice to share some sites that have either lists of books on them, reviews of fantasy romance/romantic fantasy books on them, or some combination of the two.
(Note: Please be aware that, because there aren’t a whole lot of blogs dedicated to these subgenres [at least, based on my searches] most, if not all, of these blogs are run by those who write in this genre. Inclusion does not imply endorsement of their books. Also, I get nothing from mentioning them.)
Hope you enjoy.
Here Be Magic – This is the first one I found when I started searching for fantasy books with romance in them. Created by a group of authors, the blog covers fantasy, sf, and paranormal romance, as well as more general posts related to the aforementioned subgenres and posts about writing. They also have a page with links to free reads, written by said authors and meant as a way of sampling their work, for those who might be interested.
Epic Fantasy | Epic Romance – A blog by author Jayne Castel. Covers reviews of other books in the genre as well as updates on her own. And for writers, she has posts dedicated to combining fantasy and romance.
Epic Fantasy Romance – Like Here Be Magic, this blog is maintained by a group of authors. Also has lists dedicated to epic fantasy romance books and epic fantasy books with romance in them.
ensworldofwords – a book reviewer whose preference leans toward fantasy romance.
Heroes and Heartbreakers – Combines fantasy romance with paranormal. They don’t have a lot of the former, but it’s well organized and also contains urban fantasy, for those who are looking for that as well.
Do you know of any others? I’d be glad to add them. Just let me know in the comments below. Thanks!
