Looking for Halloween romance novels? So am I! For all that paranormals have been solid romance performers for decades now, and we get deluged with maple leaves and pumpkins if we so much as glance in the direction of a hobby store, Halloween as a holiday doesn’t get much genre love. While tagging books with Halloween content (visit our Halloween tag here!), I have been able to find some specifically Halloween stories. Generally speaking, though, us Halloween lovers are lucky to find characters going to a party, much less a full book dedicated to the spirits of our season.

Here are some Halloween romances that our reviewers enjoyed:

Her Halloween Treat by Tiffany Reiz: A funny, sexy relationship between a heroine staying at her brother’s cabins and the contractor working on fixing them up. I miss Harlequin Blaze!

The Cottage on Pumpkin and Vine: Our reviewer’s favorite story in this anthology was Jennifer Dawson’s Mesmerized By You, where friends become lovers at a magical bed and breakfast. (There’s only one bed!).

Jaded, Bearded, Wolfish by G.G. Andrews: A grumpy hero and sunshine heroine meet while playing werewolves at the local haunted house. Perfect for fans of a funny opposites-attract story.

You may also want to check out some additional tags. Even though these stories aren’t specifically Halloween-themed, they have a supernatural or spooky vibe certain to put you in a Halloween mood:

Tags: shifter romance, vampires, zombies, ghost, Angels, demon, witch, medium, psychic romance, gothic

Do you have any spooky or fall-themed books to recommend here? Is a Halloween romance a treat for you? Why do you think we don’t see many of them?
