Here at Romance Rehab, we love indie authors. Why, you ask? Because indie authors aren't at the mercy of a publishing house and a schedule that limits the number of books released in a year. As a result, indie authors release books A LOT faster than traditionally published authors. Let's face it: if we had to wait on all the traditionally published authors out there to release a book, we'd run out of new stuff to read in a week. Or worse yet, we could DIE before the next book in a favorite series is released. (I'm looking at you, Justin Cronin) To celebrate our love of indie authors and all things vampire-y and shifter-y, here are our favorite paranormal romance indie authors, listed in no particular order:
(Note: The books listed below are all book 1 in a series. You’re welcome.)

But when a chance encounter leads to her escape, Ryot vows revenge against Hades, and she’s the perfect assassin for the job.
When Soren learns of Ryot’s escape, he knows the bodies will soon pile up, with Hades like a cherry on top. Time is running out, but this isn’t the first time Soren has tracked Ryot. He knows her well, knows how she thinks, and he knows that she won’t stop until Hades is dead.

Stalking her wasn’t supposed to make him feel anything. She was supposed be like all the others. He begins to unravel and, in the end, makes the choice to pick a fight he knows he cannot win in order to save her life.

It's time that she learned the truth about her brother, but there is a shocking twist that Austin never saw coming. Now he must protect her family when her mother and sister wind up in mortal danger. Will Lexi learn to accept the truth about who he is, and can Austin salvage a relationship from the ruins of their past?
But, as with most things involving the afterlife, beware the fine print. Most notably, Lily will become a soul retriever, venturing into the bowels of the Underground City to retrieve souls that were mistakenly sent there by Afterlife Enterprises during a Y2K computer glitch.
Second, there’s angel Bill. As if risking her second life in the Underground City wasn’t enough, Lily’s guide to the Underground is none other than her incompetent, alcoholic, womanizing guardian angel, Bill, the antithesis of anything wholesome. With only Dante’s Inferno and Bill to help her in her quest, Lily’s future isn’t looking bright.
Finally, there’s the legendary bladesmith, Tallis Black. As Scottish as his kilts and heavy brogue, Tallis Black is a centuries-old Celt who, for reasons only known to him, offers to train Lily and act as her escort into the depths of the Underground City. Dark, brooding and definitely dangerous, Lily knows she shouldn’t trust Tallis, but she also can’t deny her attraction to him.
Between soul retrieving in hell, dealing with Bill and trying to figure out what’s in it for Tallis, Lily wonders if maybe she would’ve just been better off dead.
