Top 20 Werewolf romance books
Rockstar Werewolf Romance Books with Urban Fantasy Kick
Rockstars, dark princes, werewolves, vampires, and fated mates… what is a girl to do?
We're kicking things off with Mandy M. Roth's Tempting Fate series. Originally published Jan 2006, Loup Group (the first book in the series) helped launch a small publishing house and was nominated for Best Paranormal Erotic Romance by Romantic Times Magazine.
Loup Garou (Tempting Fate #1)
Loup Garou introduces us to Lindsay Willows. After spending years touring with various music artists and choreographing their shows, she's ready for a quieter life. One where she can make a difference without drawing too much attention to herself.
As the daughter of both a vampire and a Fae, the cards were already stacked against her. Finding out she’s the supposed mate of a dark fae prince doesn’t help matters. Especially when there are those who will stop at nothing to prevent her from mating with a prince, she’s never even met.
When Exavier Kedmen, the incredibly sexy frontman for a world-famous band, shows up wanting her to go back to working in a field she left three years ago, she can’t explain the strong feelings that surface for a man she barely knows.
Lindsay finds herself confronting demons from her past, coming to terms with the ones in the present, and finally looking forward to a future with the man she was created for. And she discovers evil doesn’t care who it hurts to obtain its goals, but even the evilest of things fear something, or in the case of Exavier, someone.
Bad Moon Rising (Tempting Fate #2)
The second book in the Tempting Fate series is Lindsay's best friend Gina's book. She was a fan favorite from book one and finds herself drawn to the incredibly handsome werewolf who just so happens to be the local wolf pack leader and a homicide detective.
Gina, a natural-born slayer with a little something special, has been looking for love in all the wrong places. She’s not holding out for Prince Charming, and for some strange reason, she can’t stop having feelings she shouldn’t for a man she considers just a friend. Sure, he’s hot, but he’s an alpha male shifter. Shifters and slayers don’t mix. It’s just the way of it. Plus, he’s been friend-zoned.
Detective Jay Gonzales is so in love with the spit-fire redheaded slayer he can’t see straight. She keeps him at arm’s length, and he can’t blame her. He’s got a history as a ladies' man, and he’s not what her slayer buddies would consider a catch. He doesn’t care.
She means something to him, and this alpha wolf shifter isn’t about to take no for an answer, especially since he’s sure she’s his mate. Breaking the news to his pack and keeping her safe from a rising dark threat are just two more obstacles he has to overcome to make Gina his forever.
Can they overcome the odds that are stacked against them?
Urban Fantasy Werewolf Romance Books
First published in 2007, book one of The Guardians series (titled The Guardians) drops us into a world of shifters, vampires, Fae, magic, gods and goddesses, pleasure nymphs, and a supernatural group of guardians, duty-bond to protect mankind.
The Guardians (The Guardians #1)
Butt-kicking Guardian, Madelyn Mason, is the only female in a sea of supernatural males. College student by day, she spends her nights fighting for mankind–the innocents, the ones who have no clue that the things of nightmares walk among the living.
Larger-than-life Hollywood hunk, Brady Devens, has won the hearts of millions of adoring fans. But, the only heart he wants to win is that of his mate, Madelyn. As pack alpha, his fated mate isn't showing an interest in him as anything more than a friend, and he’s beginning to think the Powers That Be goofed.
In this world of magic, mishap, demons, gods, and pleasure nymphs, anything is possible. Can they find a love that transcends time and space, or will the Powers That Be decide that maybe they weren’t destined for one another after all?
Crossing Hudson (The Guardians #2)
Book two in The Guardians series, Crossing Hudson, gives us Hudson's (from book one) story and introduces us to his mate. Beware, she's small but mighty.
Maryann “Ryan” Mackenzie was raised to be the perfect mate to a powerful alpha male, with the sole purpose of helping him resist his dark side. What better way to fight darkness than to make her emulate all that is goodness and light? That was before everything she loved was taken away from her.
Sweet Maryann is dead, and Ryan has emerged from her ashes, a slayer with one final task to complete. The last thing she needs is a hunky new Guardian getting in her way.
Alpha male shifter Hudson Carver is many things, but a glorified babysitter isn’t one of them. When he’s summoned to take on a new charge, he’s less than pleased. She may be a slayer, but there’s a reason he’s been assigned as her Guardian. She’s got a whole heap of evil on her trail, and he isn’t about to let one hair on her head be harmed—especially when he realizes who she is to him. His mate.
Paranormal Women's Fiction Romance Books
For women 40 and over who are all out of ducks to give!
Next up in the rather extensive collection of werewolf romance books that Mandy has released is her USA TODAY bestselling series, Grimm Cove. Set in the fictional South Carolina town of Grimm Cove, these books are full of passion, fated mates, werewolves, vampires, magic, witches, danger, action, friendship, nods to gothic literature, and romance.
Cloudy with a Chance of Witchcraft (Grimm Cove #1)
When it rains, it pours…and sometimes love finds you even when you can’t find yourself.
Fate has given me a second chance at the happiness I once knew in the odd Southern town of Grimm Cove. But only if I can come to terms with some rather eye-opening revelations. Supernaturals are a real thing. I’m a witch. My high school sweetheart, who happens to be the Chief of Police in Grimm Cove, is my fated mate and a wolf-shifter. Ghosts exist and can be very nosy and meddlesome.
Someone is murdering witches left and right. And last but not least, my ex-husband’s barely legal arm candy is taking fatal attraction to new levels of Hell.
I’m no shrinking violet, and with the help of my best friends, I’m going to live life on my terms–come Hell, high water, or magikal mishaps.
Hexing with a Chance of Tornadoes (Grimm Cove #2)
A storm is brewing, and so is a budding romance.
Grimm Cove is teeming with supernaturals. And since I’ve known they exist for a hot minute, I’m still in a state of total shock. When I learn that I come from a long line of witches and demon slayers, the stakes (pun intended) get even higher and sharper.
These monsters aren’t make-believe. They’re out for blood.
I’m trying to decide if having the alpha of the local wolf-shifter pack nipping at my heels is an asset in this fight or if he’s one more person I need to watch my back around. I just wish he wasn’t so sexy and didn’t smell so good. He’d be a lot easier to resist.
I have enough going on in my life as it is. I really do not have time for all this fated mate crap everyone keeps telling me about. My head and heart are at war, and now isn’t the time for distractions, especially since it’s painfully clear that something evil wants me dead.
Military Paranormal Romances Full of Action, Alpha Males, and True Love
The Immortal Operatives Series World
This includes (to date) the Immortal Ops® series, PSI-Ops®, Immortal Outcasts®, Shadow Agents: Paranormal Security and Intelligence Ops Shadow Agents®, and the Crimson Ops. You can find the suggested reading order here. With nearly 30 books and counting in the overall series world, you might be wondering what book has a werewolf? Remember, this selection centers on the books within the world that have a wolf-shifter as the main character.
Immortal Ops Team Captain Lukian Vlakhusha is having issues with his newest target, Peren Matthews. His higher-ups want her eliminated. He simply wants her. The alpha side of him demands he claim her–that is, if she’ll have him. After all, he’s what she fears most–a wolf shifter. But there is more to Peren than even she’s aware of and the enemy is closer than anyone imagined.
Roi Majors, wolf-shifter and second in command of the I-Ops, is having a hard time believing that Intel can only get half the information needed to bring down an underground ring of vampires with big-spending backers who are hell-bent on creating a race of supernaturals with multiple strands of DNA in them.
When he finds himself paired with the one woman in the world who seems immune to his self-proclaimed charms, he can’t wait to see her to safety and then bid her good riddance. He never counted on falling in love with her. And he sure in the hell never counted on her claiming to be an agent with a branch of the government no human should know about.
Act of Mercy
Paranormal Security and Intelligence Operative Duke Marlow has a new mission: find, interrogate and possibly eliminate the target—Mercy Deluca. He knows looks can be deceiving, but it’s hard to believe the beautifully quirky woman running around in a superhero t-shirt is a viable threat. The sexy little biomedical engineer quickly proves she is more than he bargained for and Intel has it all wrong—she’s not the enemy. Far from it. Intel also forgot to mention one vital piece of information—she’s Duke’s mate. This immortal alpha werewolf doesn’t take kindly to her being in danger.
When Mercy accepted a position within The Corporation she thought it was to help cure disease and to make a difference for mankind. She had no idea what her new career path truly entailed—monsters masquerading under the guise of scientific research. Unable to stomach the atrocities she’s uncovered, she reaches out through what she hopes is the proper channels, asking for help. Mercy gets more than she bargains for when a team of paranormal hotties shows up on her doorstep ready to take down The Corporation. One, in particular, seems to be able to get under skin, both aggravating her and exciting her in ways she can’t explain.
Act of Surrender
Dr. James Hagen thought he’d bid Paranormal Security and Intelligence Agency good riddance nearly ten years back. He’d been an operative with them for so long that carving out a new path in life had taken time, but he’d achieved it. He’d made it his mission in life to help the wayward find a path again, to help those who couldn’t help themselves. All that changed when he fell into enemy hands.
Now, unable to fully heal and plagued by nightmares and choppy visions of what is to come, James isn’t sure if he can keep going. That is, until he meets PSI’s newest person of interest—a quirky, sexy cyberpunk who totally turns his world upside down.
Laney Steele knows she’s onto something. It doesn’t matter that most have written her off as a conspiracy theorist and a hacktivist. She knows the government is hiding the existence of super soldiers who can shapeshift into animals. She’s so sure that she puts herself on the line to find out more, only what she uncovers isn’t exactly what she was hoping for, and it has a heck of a lot more to do with her than she ever thought possible.
When her newfound online gamer buddy turns out to be a super soldier, she throws caution to the wind just for a chance to be with him. Neither one of them realize the enemy has been lurking, waiting for the perfect moment to strike—again.
Act of Brotherhood
Captain Garth Ingersson is in charge of Paranormal Security and Intelligence Agency Special Ops Team Eight. It’s a position he didn’t originally want, but one he has grown to accept. The men who look to him to lead are like brothers to him. Especially since he and his twin brother had a falling out years ago.
Much has changed for this ancient Viking over the centuries, but one thing remains the same–never thinking he has a true mate. This six-and-half-foot-tall Scandinavian is about to have his world turned upside down.
Act of Freedom
Paranormal Security and Intelligence operative and wolf-shifter Dougal “Striker” McCracken is known for his wild ways, and devil-may-care attitude. He’s worked long and hard to build the persona. It disarms others and protects his emotions. The ones he keeps buried within. But try as he might, one woman sees through his antics. She’s not afraid to call him on his bull or set him in his place when the need arises (which it often does). He’s not sure how to act around the lass.
On the one hand, she makes his body burn with a desire, the likes of which he’s never experienced before. On the other, she’s irritable, stubborn, not a huge fan of his, and most of all, vulnerable.
He might have already missed his window to claim the feisty woman. Even if he hasn’t, it would be wrong to give in to the pull he has to her when all she needs is time to heal and process everything she’d gone through. But it’s impossible for him to stay away. Simply being in her orbit soothes his inner wolf.
Striker knows deep down she’s his mate and that patience has never been one of his virtues. When the enemy makes a move against her, this Scotsman lets his wolf and his emotions free.
Genetically altered into a super-soldier who can shift into a wolf, Casey Black should have been the perfect asset—but that wasn’t to be. The scientists who conducted DNA splicing experiments on him put a little too much wolf in his cocktail. Considered a danger to society and a risk to the survival of the secret project, the government tried to eliminate him.
The former Immortal Operative has spent the majority of his life on the run and off the grid from the very government who’d helped him be ‘all he could be’. When the sassy, headstrong woman who makes his body burn with need vanishes, he realizes it’s not his head, but rather his heart that is broken. And he’ll do whatever is called for to mend it.
Total surrender doesn’t come easy to a natural-born alpha. Wolf-shifter Special Operative Brad Durant has been held against his will by the enemy for nearly a year. He’s given up hope and is fast giving up his will to survive, that is until a hot-tempered, redhead succubus is placed in the cell next to his. She calls to his wolf on a primitive level, and he won’t let anyone or anything harm her. Giving his body to the little minx is easy, but guarding his heart is much harder.
Healing the Wolf
Paranormal Security and Intelligence Operative and Shadow Agent Gram Campbell is not having a great year. So far this alpha-male wolf-shifter has had his heart and his body broken. Now his friends have staged their version of an intervention, sending him off to spend time in a luxury retreat and spa that caters to the supernatural.
But this tranquil oasis is more than it appears to be. In it lurks a dark secret. One that threatens to destroy Gram and his destined mate. Is he beyond repair, or will his fated mate bring much-needed healing to the man and the wolf within? And can they survive a madman and his vision for the future?

A Druid of Her Own (Druid Series #4)
Immortal, seductive, able to shift into a wolf, and a downright sinful highland warrior, Kennard O’Caha has had only one mission for the past several centuries—find and destroy the dark sorcerer Athol. Now that the job is done, it’s time to park his motorcycle, kick up his boots, enjoy a few drinks, and possibly find a honey to warm his bed for a night. After all, nothing quite refuels the magik like pleasure.
That was the plan, anyways.
Too bad life had something else in store for this magikal biker bad boy. When a stubborn redhead is set in his path, it’s all he can to do to keep from instantly claiming her—his mate. Evil has its sights set on his woman, and he’s not about to let her go without one hell of a fight.
Seduced by the Highland Werewolf (Druid #5)

When the nightmares of old surface once more, he wastes no time returning to the scene of the crime. Deep down, he knows the demon is back with a vengeance. This time he plans to kill it—that is, if he can keep his head in the game and off the captivating young woman he finds in the small town that is full of dark secrets.
Catrina calls to him on a base level, leaving him at war with the beast he carries within. He’ll have to keep his focus if he has a chance in hell of ending the demon’s reign of terror once and for all.

When she arrives in the sleepy little fishing town of Everlasting, for a surprise visit with her grandfather, she soon learns that outrunning one problem can lead to a whole mess of others. She finds herself the prime suspect in a double homicide. She doesn’t even kill spiders, let alone people, but local law enforcement has their eyes on her.
The secrets of Everlasting come to light, and Penelope has to not only accept that things that go bump in the night are real, but apparently, she’s destined for a man who sprouts fur and has a bizarre obsession with fish sticks.

Interested in fierce werewolf romance books full of alpha male wolf shifters, fated mates, all with a dystopian, futuristic backdrop? Mandy's Prospect Springs Shifter series fits the bill.
Blaze of Glory (Prospect Springs Shifters #1)
Sheriff Jonathan MacSweeny is in charge of keeping the peace in Prospect Springs. Frontier living isn’t what it used to be. It’s hard to survive in the New Old West, and it’s even harder when your area doesn’t exactly embrace supernaturals–and you howl at the moon. That being said, he’s good at his job and has a reputation with the ladies.
When he learns his childhood sweetheart is to be married off to the town sleazebag, he goes in guns blazing to see to it she’s his. Problem is, Molly isn’t the same girl he remembers from ten years prior. Now she’s a gun-toting, foul-mouthed, vixen with a badge of her own.
Special Marshal Molly Cogan never planned to set foot back in Prospect Springs.

Parker's Honor (Prospect Springs Shifters #2)
Sometimes honor comes with a price. Sometimes it comes with love…

He’s lived an adventurous life, bedding lots of ladies, never thinking of settling down with just one. He’s been content with his practice and going several towns over to take advantage of the brothels there. He doesn’t like mixing business and pleasure.
When a woman comes to town masquerading as someone from Parker’s past, everything changes. She’s not who she first claims to be—hell, she’s not even who she says she is next.
