In the first post of this blog series, I mentioned the reason behind writing it. I know what it’s like heading over to Amazon or B&N and scrolling through page after page of books looking for something new to read. The smaller retailers are disappearing, making it harder and harder to browse. I offer up my own book recommendations based on a certain genre and tone.

As those who are familiar with my Elementals series and my werewolf romance Wild Side know, I’m a big fan of paranormal romance. The very first paranormal novels to hook my attention, though, were those about vampires. Some authors have taken vampires into lighter and more humorous directions, but for this post, I’m going to stick with more serious fanged favorites.


Books I Recommend:


Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles — in my opinion, you can’t truly say you’re a vampire fan if you haven’t read at least a few books in this series


J.R. Ward’s Blackdagger Brotherhood series — the word “badass” comes to mind, since this series is full of aggressive vampires, action, and hot love scenes


Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series — I love the Wroth brothers, along with just about every other supernatural character in this series


Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series — plenty of edgy and an interesting take on vampire origins


Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter series — I enjoy the mythology mixed in


Angela Knight’s Mageverse series — King Arthur and vampires? Sign me up!


Christine Feehan’s Dark/Carpathian series — has both good Carpathians and the nasty vampires they can turn into


Allie Ritch’s Vampire Territory series — contemporary (but with an alternate history), and the books have plenty of action and spicy love scenes


Jennifer Turner’s Darkness Within series — edgy and original


Jessica Sorenson’s Darkness Falls


Melissa R. Smith’s Six hours to Sunrise


Jacquelyn Frank’s Drink of Me
