I cannot get enough of fantasy romance novels lately. I don’t know what it is about mythological wars and magical powers that make me fall in love with the characters, but lately fantasy romance has been hitting the spot. Here are three must-read fantasy romance authors.
1) Maggie Shayne
Author of the By Magic series, Maggie Shayne knows how to let you escape into fantasy. The love stories in both By Magic Enchanted and By Magic Beguiled were wonderfully addictive and deliciously sweet. By Magic Enchanted took me by surprise and became even better than I thought it would be.
Both stories feature two sisters, descendants of royal fairy blood. One grows up homeless on city streets The other imprisoned by an enemy prince. Their magic and their wits keep them alive as they try to reclaim their destiny and their place in their kingdom.
Read my review for By Magic Beguiled.
2) Elise Marion
Elise Marion is an exceptional world builder and an amazing storyteller. She has the ability to sweep you into the world in Chained, where two very different regions are on the brink of war. Little do they know the war is orchestrated by a third party, one that is very dangerous.
I’ve read three books in the Chained series, and I loved all three. The characters are really well developed and the cultures well crafted. Marion is an amazing writer and I highly recommend them.

3) Chani Lynn Feener
Author of Bad Things Play Here, which tells the tale of Piper, a descendant of Pandora. Her family has been guarding Pandora’s box for millennia, but Piper wants to just have a normal life and more importantly a connection with someone, something she was denied her entire childhood. But when Pandora’s box is stolen by a malicious spirit, she needs to team up with Reece, the god of Lust, to stop more Sins from escaping. Reece wants nothing to do with Piper’s family, but Piper makes him feel things he had long forgotten. What starts out as one night of pleasant distractions from Pandora’s Box becomes something more. But as much as Reece wants to, could he really be with Piper, a mortal?
