I had to create a thread dedicated to the bad boys of paranormal romance. Feel free to give a shout-out to your faves.

The heroes from The Demonica series by Larissa Ione definitely deserve a mention:

Pleasure Unbound (Demonica, #1) by Larissa Ione Desire Unchained (Demonica, #2) by Larissa Ione Passion Unleashed (Demonica, #3) by Larissa Ione Ecstasy Unveiled (Demonica, #4) by Larissa Ione

Debbie (halfpint66) | 272 comments Great! Another subject where there are too many choices to pick from, LOL!!!.........Well, right now the first choice that comes to mind is the heroes from the Argeneau Family Vampire/Rogue Hunter series by Lynsay Sands. I'm reading the Rogue Hunter by LS right now.

Shannon (Savhage Temptrest) (savhagetemptress) | 32 comments I agree Danielle! The Psy/Changeling heroes are more bad-ass than bad boy, and I'm glad you mentioned them! Love those books-Hawke is the man!

message 15: by DarkHeart "Vehngeance" (last edited Mar 19, 2010 12:21AM) (new)

DarkHeart "Vehngeance" (darkheart) Okay, I'm in full agreement with all of the BDB boys, the IAD boys and Bones. Here are a few (ha! there's no limit to submissions is there?) more for your consideration:

* Sherrilyn Kenyon has some seriously alpha males in her Dark Hunter series (I'm especially partial to Ash and the were-hunters).
* Christine Feehan's Ghostwalker are all super alpha (some times too alpha for my liking), but damn yummy.
* Ilona Andrews' Curran - Oh yeah...
* Kelley Armstrong's Clay Danvers - you'd be hard pressed to find a hotter werewolf (and let's not forget Jeremy).
* Lara Adrian's Midnight Breeds are very sexy
* Patricia Briggs' Adam, Samuel, Ben, Charles, Bran...
* Adrian Phoenix's Dante Baptiste is my all time favorite vamp - sexy, dangerous and tortured
* Amy Lane's Adrian, Green and Bracken one hot vamp and a couple of wicked fae...
* Melissa Marr's Seth and Niall - sigh...
* Richelle Mead's Dimitri and Adrian
* Rachel Caine's Shane & Michael - best not to elaborate on their origins...
* And last, but not least, Rachel Vincent's wicked sexy werecats Marc, Jace, Ethan and Owen

I'm sure there are loads more, but these are the ones that immediately sprang to mind.

Same here, Whitney, although I love me some Dorian and Judd. :)


DarkHeart "Vehngeance" (darkheart) =) I know you didn't mean to forget them.

BTW... I'm having trouble with the latest GW again. Apparently for me, there is such a thing as too alpha. Sigh...

DH, Mack is way into macho territory. I can see why you'd have trouble with him. He was raising my hackles.


message 20: by Zeek (new)

Zeek | 34 comments You guys picked the best already! I REALLY looking forward to Jonas's story from LL's Breeds- just hoping LL does him justice.


message 21: by Zeek (new)

Zeek | 34 comments oh and JZB?! Man I lust him.


message 22: by Shannon (new)

Shannon (Savhage Temptrest) (savhagetemptress) | 32 comments Oh yes Zeek, I hope LL does Jonas justice in Lion's Heat too! I just can't wait.

Hawke is just too scrumptious, and I can't wait to read his story either.

Lovin the Dark Hunter men, Curran OH YEAH...MMMMMMMM!, Jace is sooooo the man, love-love-love Bran, Samuel, Adam, and Charles!

Did anyone mention the Darkyn series? This is fantastic dark paranormal romance/urban fantasy.

Zeek | 34 comments I love the Darkyn series! Evermore and- oo looks like you forgot Twilight Fall- are my favorites!

The first in the spin off series was just as good!

Shadowlight


message 30: by Zeek (new)

Zeek | 34 comments OH! well this season is a little frustrating for reasons I don't want to say so as not to spoil it for you- not sure what I think of it yet, but I think I like it better than season 4 ...

My mom has not been pleased with this season.

I'm sure I will love it as a whole. There are a few Supernatural episodes I didn't care for. But I love the series.

i haven't really liked the fourth season either, it has gotten in a nasty habit of staying on the subject of religion, and viewing it disrespectfully. now ,jensen and jared are beautiful, but i will turn it if they begin to be disrespectful about God.


message 36: by Zeek (last edited Mar 29, 2010 11:15AM) (new)

Zeek | 34 comments oh I'm actually pleased they are actually bringing God into it- usually you just see the demons! (And I'm reserving judgement on the disrespectful part until I see how they end it...ya never know!)

What I'm not liking is the "emotional wall" between Dean and Sammy, I miss the old chemistry. :( But then, that started last season, didn't it.

 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 9732 comments Mod
Zeek, I don't like the emotional wall either. Christine, I'm not fond of scenarios where the only time you see God is when he's made into the bad guy. I hope this doesn't turn out to be the case with Supernatural. But I think this is a concern of my mother's. I think it's a good idea to reserve judgment, Zeek. Things aren't always the way it seems. I must say I absolutely adore Castiel. As much as I love badboys, I have a profound weakness for truly honorable heroes, just as much.


message 38: by Zeek (last edited Mar 29, 2010 12:00PM) (new)

Zeek | 34 comments oh yes the archetypal noble hero is a major weakness for me too- in fact I *usually* go for them more. (I've been a Jack girl from the beginning of Lost) and to be honest that's really why I love Dean- he's the good boy masquerading as a bad boy.

Now that I think about it- I honestly am not a badboy lover. I'll always pick the noble hero over an ambiguous anti-hero, if I get the chance.

The reason why I'm a pnr badboy fan? because, tho they look like badboys- at heart, they're the good guys.


message 39: by Danielle The Book Huntress , Loves 'Em Lethal (new)

 Danielle The Book Huntress  (gatadelafuente) | 9732 comments Mod
Well said. I like the badboy because he just needs a little love to find the inner knight in shining armor.


message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

that is my only thing about it. God is no the bad guy, he is the best guy EVER!


message 41: by Kathy Anne (new)

Kathy Anne (kathyanne) Dr E in Larissa Iones first Demonica book ,and of course Bones-love these two guys

Suzanne (Under the Covers Book blog) | 474 comments Bones and Ian from the Night Huntress series are especially yummy. Gregori and Lucian from Chrsitine Feehans Carpathian series. Anyone of the boys from the BDB oh and Lachlain from IAD and Curran from Ilona Andrews books.

Damn I am going to need a schedule of some sort...

Kathy Anne (kathyanne) Bones is just the best,I haven`t read Showalter yet so I`ll try to remember to try her,some folks say yea to her and some no,so I`ll have to see.
For me it`s Bones and Dr. E from the Demonica series.


Suzanne (Under the Covers Book blog) | 474 comments Yeah, Bones is totally hot, I just love his kick 'em well there down attitude, lol he fights dirty :)

You should try out the Showalter ones, they are good, they have plenty of man candy to chose from, my personal faourite it Gideon Keeper of Lies.

Yes! Barrons is definitely one of my favorite bad boys along with his nemesis V'Lane (even though V'Lane tries to behave for Mac)! ;-)
