Kimberly / Love Notes Book Blog (picklechic) | 25 comments I just read With Everything I Am (The Three, #2) by Kristen Ashley because I'm a huge Kristen Ashley fan, even though I've never really read PNR. But I loved it! So now I'm looking for something similar. I am trying to decide between one of Nalini Singh's series (either Psy-changling or Guildhunters), Black Daggar Brotherhood, or something else? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Salome | 35 comments I haven't read the book you mentioned but here are some of my favorites. Not sure if you prefer YA or Adult, so I'm listing both:

Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy, #1) by Wendy Higgins
Obsidian (Lux, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Half-Blood (Covenant, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Darkfever (Fever, #1) by Karen Marie Moning

Kimberly / Love Notes Book Blog (picklechic) | 25 comments Thank you! I do prefer adult and I have already read (and loved) KMM's Fever series.

Tammy | 33 comments Between the books mentions I'd go with Singh's Guildhunter series

message 6: by Monie_11 (new)

Monie_11 | 10 comments you should try Moon Called (Mercy Thompson, #1) by Patricia Briggs

message 7: by PepperP0t (new)

PepperP0t  | 534 comments Sherrilyn Kenyon's Darkhunter & the League series. (I can't do Chronicles of Nick - Zombies!) I'd also recommend Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld, Laurann Dohner's New Species, Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels. Rebecca Zanetti is also good.

Graylark | 2 comments Nalini Singh's books are so visually and emotionally rich that reading them is like going on a Belgian chocolate binge. I prefer her Guild Hunter series to the Psy-Changeling one purely because her descriptions of the angels' wings are gorgeous and it's such a lovely and terrifying world she's created. (Which is not to say the Psy-Changeling series isn't lovely either; it is.)

The Kate Daniels series is also excellent--she's satisfyingly kickass and the romance there is a slow burn.

Oh, and try Thea Harrison's Elder Races series: Dragon Bound (Elder Races, #1) by Thea Harrison .

Nalini Singh is pretty awesome, especially if you're a fan of detailed world building.

JR Ward knows how to write a damn good PNR, and if you're looking for something along the lines of Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #1) by J.R. Ward after you read BDB, I love Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed. That series starts with Kiss of Midnight (Midnight Breed, #1) by Lara Adrian .

(Isn't it great when you find a new genre??)

Kimberly / Love Notes Book Blog (picklechic) | 25 comments Thank you guys so much! I started the Guild Hunter series and I do really like it a lot. I just wish it had a little more romance to it. I've added all your suggestions to by TBR list too. Is there any book/series mentioned or not mentioned that has a really good romance?

Have you looked at Christine Feehan's Ghostwalker Series. Lots of sex but also romance. I always feel great after I've read one.

Chocolatesoup | 16 comments Lots of great suggestions here! I heartily second a few recommendations. I really love Thea Harrison's Elder Races series! Two other that I enjoy are Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series and Christine Feehan's Ghostwalker series.

These are a bit more steampunk and so very good. Meljean Brook's Iron Seas series, Bec McMaster's London Steampunk series and Kristen Callihan's Darkest London series.
