With Halloween approaching, it’s time to take a closer look at paranormal books with lesbian or women-loving women main characters.
Paranormal books are set in a world that looks like our current, ordinary world at first glance—but paranormal creatures and supernatural beings such as werewolves, shapeshifters, vampires, demons, or ghosts exist along with humans.
If paranormal fiction is a square that you struggle with, take a look at these tips on how to complete your book bingo card even when you don’t like speculative fiction.

Ex-Wives of Dracula by Georgette Kaplan
Mindy’s best friend, Lucia, is a vampire. Every second Mindy spends with her she’s in danger of becoming dinner. But Lucia needs help. To keep her alive they need fresh blood, and to cure her they have to kill her sire. So why is it that Nosferatu, the cops, and the chance of becoming an unwilling blood donor don’t scare Mindy half as much as the way she feels when Lucia looks at her?
Five Moons Rising by Lise MacTague
Code-named Malice, Hunter Mary Alice Nolan was genetically modified and rigorously trained to use her great strength, heightened senses, and killer instincts to eliminate supras who prey on the innocent. Werewolf Ruri Samson is comfortably situated as the Beta of her peaceful pack. Until she is betrayed by the woman she loves and an evil outsider massacres her pack. Although these two women should despise each other, fate compels them to join forces on a dangerous quest to avenge their loved ones—and will ignite a forbidden passion that neither of them ever imagined.
Little Dip (Garoul Series, book 5) by Gill McKnight
It’s 1977, and Connie Fortune has an easy, freewheeling life as a wildlife photographer and illustrator. A new contract brings her to the Little Dip valley in Oregon to track down a rare bird, but a clash with Sylvie Garoul, the valley’s owner and matriarch of the mysterious Garoul family, and her daughter, the haughty, frustrating, but somehow bewitching Marie Garoul, ruins the deal.
The following year Connie tries again, but this time, things have changed. The residents of nearby Lost Creek are up in arms about strange goings-on in the valley, with blame swirling around the Garouls. Connie is unsure whose side she is on, even as she’s drawn deeper into Little Dip.

The Midnight Hunt (Midnight Hunters, book 1) by L.L. Raand
Medic Drake McKennan has never been good at following protocol, so she doesn’t think twice about rendering emergency care when a young girl’s life is at stake—even if the girl is in the throes of Were fever and any sane human should know better.
