Lana Standley (lana241189) I have just finished reading Charlaine Harris - sookie stackhouse series and loved it. I read stephenie meyer series before that and again loved it but it was more for YOUNG adults.


i need a good adult paranormal romance book like the Charlaine Harris series. I heard the J R Ward - Black Dagger Brotherhooh series was a good one?
Any suggestions!!!

Jessica Bair-Epps | 725 comments Have you read Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead? I highly recommend it.


message 3: by Lauren (new)

Lauren | 208 comments Love Love Love black dagger brotherhood!
definitely a good one to read next. another one is Immortals after dark by Kresley Cole
or Dark hunters by Sherrilyn Kenyon


Jessica  `~Blahyze~` I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY reccomend the Black Dagger brotherhood, after I fin the sookie stackhouse series I was also looking for adult books it filled the void... I also liked Succubus Blues..very good and Storm Born by the same author was really good too.

Hope this helps.

Pickles (angstypickles) | 219 comments The Black Dagger Brotherhood is a good series, especially the first 3 books, but I'm preferring Kresley Cole's "Immortals After Dark" series right now. It's a hot, fun series. It starts with A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark, #2) by Kresley Cole . (Well, that is the first novel in the series, but technically the first story set in the IAD universe was a novella in Playing Easy to Get (Includes Immortals After Dark, #1; Vikings Underground, #3; and B.A.D. #5) by Sherrilyn Kenyon . I read the novella after I had already read all of the full-length novels in the series, though, so you don't really have to start there.)

Keri Arthur's Riley Jensen series is also excellent, and definately worth a look!
Full Moon Rising (Riley Jenson Guardian, #1) by Keri Arthur (First Book in the series)

message 14: by Charity (new)

Charity (charity4130) | 1 comments I would recommend Christine Feehans Ghostwalker Series and the Drake sisters series! I SERIOUSLY keep rereading them both!!!


message 15: by Cassie (new)

Cassie (cassielo) | 37 comments I filled my Sookie void with the Queen Betsy series (I thought they were just absolutely hilarious) and the Mercedes Thompson series.


message 16: by Katie (new)

Katie (lekaza) | 11 comments Just about any book by Katie MacAlister A Girl's Guide to Vampires (Dark Ones, #1) by Katie MacAlister is the first in the dark one series You Slay Me (Aisling Grey Guardian, #1) by Katie MacAlister is the first in her Dragon series


message 17: by Carolyn F. (new)

Carolyn F. | 565 comments I loved the Dragon series. It was so funny. I was hoping there would be another book (not the Silver Dragon ones), but I haven't seen anything.


message 18: by Shanon (last edited Feb 25, 2010 07:55PM) (new)

Shanon (shazamy) I just read Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler. I think if you like Sookie, you'll really like this one too.

Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler

Angela (angbens) | 343 comments I read the BDB series, by J.R. Ward after I read Sookie....

and, to thrown a downer on our BDB fan(atics) a word of warning. If you aren't into weird spelling habits, totally bogus slang, villians that are totally pathetic, and bad writing in general--then you won't like BDB. (Ducking for cover) Sorry gals, but after trying 3 times to get through the FIRST BDB book (and never making it past page 50 or so before throwing the book at the wall) and then taking THREE DAYS to read book 2 (normally takes me 4 or 5 HOURS) well. . .

Ok, I DID read Covet by Ward--and it was ok. I did get it from the library. And while I am willing to give book 2 in the series a chance, I'm again, waiting for my name to make it to the top of the list at the library (I believe I'm #35 when it finally gets released.)

The weird thing is--I'm normally NOT a picky reader. Just not sure what it is with Ward that sits so badly, but I can barely get through her works. Ah well, if we were all alike, it would be a truly boring world, right?


message 25: by Regina (last edited Mar 25, 2010 11:25AM) (new)

Regina (reginar) I agree with many of the ones recommended above, so I won't repeat, but one I highly recommend, I think it is more Urban Fantasy with romance thrown in but it is excellent, and that is the Fever series by Moning:

Darkfever (Fever, #1) by Karen Marie Moning
Bloodfever (Fever, #2) by Karen Marie Moning
Faefever (Fever, #3) by Karen Marie Moning Dreamfever (Fever, #4) by Karen Marie Moning Shadowfever (Fever, #5) by Karen Marie Moning by Karen Marie Moning

My other faves (mentioned already):

Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1) by Jeaniene Frost
Kiss of Midnight (Midnight Breed, #1) by Lara Adrian (heavy on romance, romance is central to plot)
Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #1) by J.R. Ward

I also loved the Dragon series. Actually I love all the books she writes. I think she is hillarious.


Jen  ~The dreamer~ | 649 comments Black Dagger Brotherhood JR Ward
Succubus series Richelle Meade
Vampire Academy Richelle Meade (YA)

I've got the following series waiting for me in my Library:


Halfway to the Grave
A Hunger Like No Other
Kiss of Midnight
The Warlord Wants Forever
Pleasure Unbound
Guilty Pleasures


message 30: by Laura (new)

Laura Definitely the Night Huntress series!


message 31: by Scarlet (new)

Scarlet (extraordinarygirl86) | 81 comments I highly suggest Succubus Blues and Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. The Succubus Blues series is very similar to the Sookie Stackhouse Series in regards to her interaction with men. Like Sookie, the main character in this series has trouble with romantic relationships because she is not an average human. Vampire Academy is quite similar to Buffy The Vampire Slayer, so if you like that show you will like Vampire Academy. VA is a young adult series, but it is very well written.

The Succubus series is as well written as the Vampire Academy series and I love it just as much. I highly recommend it.


message 36: by Audrey (new)

Audrey | 35 comments I like the Georgina Kincaid series (aka Succubus series) just as much as Vampire Academy.


message 37: by Elaine (new)

Elaine (elainereads) | 21 comments I think I may have the first one in my library. I'll have to check and see.

Lisa Harris | 77 comments I enjoyed the Wicked series by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié. Good mix of romance and action, some past life stuff. I guess it is more YA than adult. But still a very good story.


message 39: by new_user (new)

new_user | 1389 comments Try Chicagoland Vampires. I think you'd like it!

Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires, #1) by Chloe Neill Friday Night Bites (Chicagoland Vampires, #2) by Chloe Neill Twice Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires, #3) by Chloe Neill
