My TOP 5 Dramione Fanfics The Disappearances of Draco Malfoy by Speechwriter ⭐ Blurb The night that Harry and Dumbledore return from the cave, the Death Eaters are delayed from reaching the top of the Astronomy Tower for one more minute. Draco Malfoy lowers his wand. A Deathly Hallows rewrite in which Draco accepts Dumbledore’s offer to fake his death and go into hiding with the Order of the Phoenix Remain Nameless by HeyJude19 ⭐ Blurb How did it feel? It felt like he was barely holding it together. She, of all people, should shun him. Or yell at him. Curse him. Spit at him. Take out her wand and blast him off the face of the earth. It was crushing guilt and relief and confusion all at once when he looked at Hermione Granger.The monotony of Draco’s daily routine had become both a lifeline and a noose. But this new habit of grabbing coffee with Hermione Granger is quickly becoming a reason to get out of bed and is unfortunately forcing him to re-evaluate his inconsequential existence.Hermione is living her life in fragments, separate pieces scattered about, and she can’t find a way to step back and let the full picture form. Why are morning meetings with Draco Malfoy the only thing that make sense anymore? Hunted by Bex-chan ⭐ Blurb Forced to work together when their old schoolmates start dying, Hermione & Draco must overcome their differences to solve the mysterious deaths. The tension in the office is getting rather…heated.  The Right Thing to Do by LovesBitca8 ⭐ Blurb Hermione felt the pounding in her ears again. She would see him for the first time since the Great Hall, gaunt and stricken at the Slytherin table with his mother clutching his arm. She hadn’t meant to look for him. Not in the corridors, not beneath the white sheets of the fallen, not on the way to the Chamber of Secrets with Ron, but she was a stupid girl. The Auction by LovesBitca8 ⭐ Blurb In the wake of the Dark Lord’s triumph over Harry Potter, the defeated must learn their new place. Hermione Granger, former Golden Girl, has been captured and reduced to human chattel. Sold to the highest bidder as the top prize at an auction of Order members and sympathizers, she is thrust into the rabid, waiting hands of the Death Eaters. But despite the horrors of Voldemort’s new world, help—and hope—seem to arise from the most unlikely of places.

These books were a sanctuary of secrets charged with anticipation. I have only listed books by two authors, but I had to mention these as I absolutely loved them. Also, Part Two will have other books by authors I adore. By now, you must know that my favorite genre…is Dark romance! 😉💖😉 What is the essence of dark romance? It isn’t just about love; it’s a voyage into uncharted territories of desire, where passion and danger entwine to create narratives as unpredictable as they are irresistible. It transcends the boundaries of conventional love stories, pushing us into a captivating realm of uncertainty. So picture this in a dimly lit room: a solitary figure becomes one with the shadows, fingers dancing feverishly across pages as immersive tales unfurl, words casting a spell that transports you into a world where every emotion is heightened, and every twist is a revelation. Now, brace yourself as the world of dark romance beckons, and it’s time to surrender to its seductive allure. Are you ready to lose yourself in the pages of passion and suspense? Join me as I reveal my top dark romance read in 2023. Let the adventure commence!!!🎉🎉🎉 Caution: These books are dark romance genres with themes that are not meant for everyone, so if you are not into dark romance books, I suggest you avoid reading these books. Legacy of Gods by Rina Kent Buy here Buy here (UK) Buy here Buy here (UK) Buy here Buy here (UK) Buy here Buy here (UK) As I have mentioned countless times, Rina Kent is one of my favorite dark romance authors. Legacy of Gods is the series about the children of our beloved characters Aiden and Elsa, Cole and Silver, Astrid and Levi, Kim and Xander, Adrian and Lia, Rai and Kyle, and Reina and Asher. The second generation sure inherited their parents’ traits, is all I can say! I absolutely loved these books. Till now, my favorite character is London King! Ah, the sass he has 😉😁 God of Malice is about Killian Carson and Glyndon King. God of Pain is about Annika Volkov and Creighton King. God of Wrath is about Cecily Knight and Jeremy Volkov, and God of Ruin is about Mia Sokolov and Landon King.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ The Dark Verse by RuNyx (reread) In the world of dark romance, some stories demand not just a read but a reread, and The Dark Verse Series by RuNyx is one such masterpiece. It felt like I was rereading this with new eyes, and it revealed layers of complexity and nuance that solidified its place among my top picks. RuNyx unfolds a narrative where characters grow, change, and grapple with their demons, creating a dynamic and engaging reading experience. In the first two installments, “The Predator” and “The Reaper,” RuNyx introduces us to the mesmerizing characters of Tristan and Morana; they’re my literary babies, and their dynamic is nothing short of perfection, as I have previously said. The third installment, “The Emperor,” introduces Dante and Amara, and their love story is truly heartbreaking. The fourth installment, “The Finisher,” introduces Alpha and Zephyr and the amnesia trope. I’m not a fan of it, but this was good. However, this book was my least favorite book from this series. The fifth installment is “The Annihilator,” introducing Shadow Man and Luna Caine. This book is a masterpiece that demands your attention. This book holds one of the most mind-bending plotlines I’ve ever encountered. Everything from the previous books converges into a narrative that feels like the calm before the storm.💖💖💖 Monster Trilogy by Rina Kent Buy here Buy here (UK) Buy here Buy here (UK) Buy here Buy here (UK) I have previously recommended this trilogy to you, my fellow book revelers. Rina Kent’s Monster Trilogy pulls you into a vortex of love, power, and unpredictable alliances. Power dynamics are central to the dark romance genre, and Monster Trilogy plays this card masterfully. Kirill and Sasha were the main characters of this smash hit trilogy. Sasha assumes the guise of a man; she infiltrates the military, seeking answers about her family’s haunting tragedy. Kirill Morozov is the formidable heir to the mighty Morozov Empire and Sasha’s military captain. The chemistry between Sasha and Kirill is nothing short of electrifying, adding a layer of intensity to the already intricate plot.⭐⭐⭐⭐ This post contains affiliate links.

Disclaimer: This blog contains an insane amount of magical puns! Aurelian by BittyBlueEyes Blurb Two years after the war, a young stranger pays a visit to the burrow. His arrival alone is baffling, but the news he brings of an upcoming war turns the world upside down. Hermione’s quiet, post-war life will never be the same. Let me spill the tea on this absolute gem, “Aurelian” by Bittyblueeyes. Hold onto your broomsticks because I’m about to take you on a magical journey as wild as a Hippogriff ride! 🎢✨ Imagine your fave wizarding world characters living their best lives in a whole new story – it’s like a Confundus Charm for your emotions.

Hermione, the brilliant witch, sends her kiddo back in time to escape some dark stuff. And this kiddo?

Together, they have to find a way to end the war in a world governed by draconian laws. “Draconian” by the amazing Noelle N is another fanfic gem I love. This fanfic has more unexpected pairings, plot twists, and emotions than a box of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans! So, check it: Slytherins take center stage—four of them diving headfirst into a drama whirlwind. After the Hogwarts battle craziness, Hermione goes MIA, and guess who’s on a solo mission to rescue her memory-less self? The one and only Draco Malfoy! But hold up, this Draco isn’t your typical dude. He’s got all the cunning, witty banter and dangerous vibes neatly wrapped in a protective package. Hermione’s been through the wringer, lemme tell ya. Her memory’s chilling on a beach somewhere, except for one tiny deet: Draco. She sees him in a totally unique light. For her, he’s the shining star in her super-traumatized life. Oh, the feels, peeps, because “Draconian” ain’t just about battles and war. It’s a rollercoaster of friendship (major squad goals with Blaise, Pansy, Theo, Draco, and the newest member, Hermione), redemption, hardships, and those emotional journeys that’ll make your heart do the cha-cha. Listen up! “Draconian” is a five-star wonder that’s basically in a league of its own. Jump into Draco’s mind, savor those quirky friendships, and brace yourself for a journey that’s gonna yank at your heartstrings. Accio tissues! 📚✨ The Fallout by Everythursday Blurb When does redemption begin? She likes to believe it is at the top of a tower, when a boy lowers his wand, his power, his control, his future in the ranks he had been promised and walks away to never be the same again. The question for Draco Malfoy, of course, was when it ended. OMG, guys, hold onto your broomsticks because “The Fallout” by everythursday is legit a rollercoaster ride through the wizarding world, and I am shaking! 🧙‍♂️✨ Holy hippogriffs, this slow-burn romance is so slow it’s like waiting for a Snail Mail curse to arrive, but guess what? I’m here for it, and I ain’t even mad. At first, I asked, “What in Merlin’s beard is happening?” But then it takes you on this wild frustration spree. Let me tell you, the payoff is as satisfying as snagging the last Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Bean – if you’re still breathing by the end, that is. Let’s talk character growth, my friends. It’s off the charts. The slow burn? Slower than a Thestral ride in slow motion. I’ve practically got this story on repeat, and it still twists my heart like a kneazle in a knot. It’s not just a romance; it’s like a freaking philosophical masterpiece. These characters are all grown up, dealing with angst, war-imposed PTSD (well, it’s still

But now, this chief of police is recovering from being shot and his Southern charm has been overshadowed by panic attacks and nightmares. He feels like a broody shell of the man he once was. Nash isn’t about to let anyone in his life know he’s struggling. But his new next-door neighbor, smart and sexy Lina, sees his shadows. As a rule, she’s not a fan of physical contact unless she initiates it, but for some reason Nash’s touch is different. He feels it too. The physical connection between them is incendiary, grounding him and making her wonder if exploring it is worth the risk. Too bad Lina’s got secrets of her own, and if Nash finds out the real reason she’s in town, he’ll never forgive her. Besides, she doesn’t do relationships. Ever. A hot, short-term fling with a local cop? Absolutely. Sign her up. A relationship with a man who expects her to plant roots? No freaking way. Once she gets what she’s after, she has no intention of sticking around. But Knockemout has a way of getting under people’s skin.

She’s messy, emotional, and way too tempting.But when the team’s General Manager vocalizes his blatant disapproval of my promotion to Captain, referring to me as an unapproachable lone wolf with no work-life balance, I can’t think of a better way to convince him otherwise than pretending to date my outgoing roommate.The only problem? Faking it feels far too natural.Having a fake girlfriend wasn’t supposed to be messy but having Indy under my roof and in my bed is complicated, especially when she wants all the romantic parts of life that I could never give her.INDYI never imagined I’d be living with my best friend’s brother, NBA superstar Ryan Shay. Even more unbelievable? He needs me to act as his loving girlfriend who’s suddenly changed him into a friendly and approachable guy. Because, well…he’s not. He’s controlling of his space and untrusting of others.Our arrangement isn’t one-sided, though. I’m in a wedding coming up, one where every one of my childhood friends, including my ex-boyfriend, will be in attendance, and there’s no better date than my ex’s celebrity hero. Blurred lines make it almost impossible to separate real from fake. Falling for my roommate was never part of the deal, especially when Ryan is quick to remind me that he doesn’t believe in love.I’m a romantic and can’t help fantasizing that he’ll change, but soon enough, I find myself questioning if sharing a roof with my best friend’s brother was the right move after all. This is Book 2 of Windy City Series, which was published on February 7, 2023. The Devine Doughnut Shop by Carolyn Brown Buy here Buy here (UK) Blurb Three women are torn between traditions of the past and unexpected new beginnings in a warmhearted novel by Carolyn Brown about family, romance, and the best pastries in Texas.
