Re: What's your favorite vampire romance?

I think I just gave someone a laurel...on accident.  I don't know if that's a bad or good thing...but whatever. Heh :smileyvery-happy:

 

In response to the thread, J.R. Ward's The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series has to be my favorite vamp romance series.  I'm quite sure a bunch of other people have mentioned that, but I just had to put my two cents. (;

Re: What's your favorite vampire romance?

I'm completely addicted to the Dark Hunter series, as well as Anita Blake.  There's just something about the bad-boy vamp that does it for me!

Thanks Melanie!

I have a feeling I'm going to be spending TOO much time on these boards....:smileytongue:  My "to read" list is super long.  Good thing I have 2 weeks at the cottage this summer to catch up on all those books on my shelf and the eBooks on my laptop!

 

Bring on the bad-boy vampires. :smileyhappy:

Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series is hands down my favorite.  The first 2 or 3 books are a little slow, but once ya get some action (romance... whatever), its hard to put down.

 

I also didn't get any sleep while reading the Sookie Sackhouse series (I would highly recomend reading the books before watching TruBlood on HBO), the House of Night series, Twilight (of course), the Night World series, and the Midnight Breed (Lara Adrian) series.

 

I just read the first 2 Argeneau Vampire Series books by Lynsay Sands- then ordered the rest of the series.  This might come in as second place.  Theres some hot luvin' scenes and a couple of scenes that I was bursting out laughing.

 

I'm gonna read the J.R. Ward books next I think.... :smileyhappy:

I'm on the last BDB book right now and I totally have to agree with you!  The Black Dagger Brotherhood series (I love Rhage!) and the Dark-Hunter (Acheron is one of my favorite characters of all time!) series are some of the best series I have read so far.  I love the flaws of the characters in both series.  They're a little more hard-edged and all the more interesting for it.  I'd highly recommend either series to anyone who enjoys a good paranormal romance where the guy gets his girl, but isn't into all that happily ever after, the world is peaches and cream stuff :smileywink:

Yeah, this is my first post :-)

 

I just read the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series. I loved the first 5 books, especially Eternal Lover.. Rhage cracks me up. I skimmed the 6th book but Ward is changing her writing technique and I didn't really like the book. But I'm going to try and change my mind set so I can sit and actually read the 6th book. I loved the Twilight Saga and I'm just about to start reading the 2nd book in the Breed series by Lara Adrian. I loved books 1-5 of BDB. Does anyone have suggestions on good Vampire romance reads? I'm looking for an enthralling series like the first few books of BDB...?

I'm currently reading Kathryn Smith's Brotherhood of the Blood series and it's pretty good.  I'll be honest, the first book was okay, but it just didn't grab me, but after that they got pretty good.  Becke just posted the links and covers to all her books in the What are you reading now thread.

 

Also, if you haven't read it, Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series is excellent.  It was vampires, demons, werewolves, fae, etc.  It is a must read series.

Re: What's your favorite vampire romance?

I haven't read many paranormals, but I did just finish Dead Sexy by Amanda Ashley.  The vamp in this book is hot, hot, hot!!!  I loved it!!!  I plan to check out her other books too.  I've read the Dark Series by Brenda Joyce.  Yum!!!  I'm new to the boards, so I've been reading a lot of recommendations by everyone.  It's very helpful.  I've gotten some great titles to check out.   Jalana your list sounds outstanding!  I've now got a TBR list longer than my arm!!!

 

Thanks y'all !!!
