Top Paranormal Romance Picks from Parajunkee

Here are some very hawt and entertaining Paranormal Romance Series for your Valentine’s Day Enjoyment.

Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward
Dark-Hunter by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Alien Huntress by Gena Showalter

Immortals After Dark by Kresley Cole

Nothing says love, like a sexy Alpha Male. The good thing about these series are that they are all character based – introducing a new romance in each book, unlike some series that follow a romantic couple, or one character through the entirety. I believe, like in life, romance can get played out a bit — so I like mine fresh in each book. These book, whether you pick up book 10 or the first in the series are enjoyable for their basic creation — the romance.

J.R. Ward’s The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series

Paranormal Romance Series, Black Dagger BrotherhoodExperience the hottest Vampire boys in fiction, the Black Dagger Brotherhood is top of the list for fang-tab-lous vampire romance. These boys are big, alpha and well, they get all sappy when they find their soul-mates. Pair it with original plots, back-story and larger-than-life characters, you have yourself a great set of books. I actually only made it up to Phury’s story — which it has been recommended to me to SKIP — because it was probably the worst in the set (book 6), but other than that — hawt hawt hawt. I’ve been itching to forget Phury and move on to Rehvenge.

 Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter/Were-Hunter Series

Dark-Hunter by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Paranormal romance
If ever there is an intimidating series to start reading it is Sherrilyn Kenyon’s books. I took one look at her list of books on Goodreads.com and nearly had a palpitation.  There are just so many of them! And then some series mix together, you have Dark-Hunter, #18 which is also Were-Hunter, #5. But the great thing about this set of books is you can pick up any one and read it and appreciate it as a great paranormal romance. My first SK book was found on a bargain shelf for $2 at Border’s, it was Devil May Cry (Dark-Hunter, #12) and I read it and loved it – 12 books into the series. Her characters are fun, sexy and kick-ass. I’ve since gone back and read them here and there, but I still haven’t read the first four. My suggestion if you want to stay in order is to go to SK’s site and she has a recommended reading order list. Good luck and hope you enjoy!

Gena Showalter’s Alien Huntress Series

Gena Showalter, Alien Huntress Series, Paranormal RomanceThese are the hottest aliens you’ll ever meet and taking that from me is quite something. I am afraid of aliens, just not these! I actually discovered this series from the ‘Deep Kiss of Winter’ anthology with Kresley Cole. And personally, I think that was the worst ‘Alien Huntress Story’ (but it was good!) all the other ones are just so good. These are more futuristic, as compared to the usual, Carpathian Mountains and ancient immortals, like you see in so many paranormal romances. I guess because the Alien Huntress series blends paranormal with science fiction seamlessly it just stands out in my mind, since I like both genres. You have hot aliens and super hot vampires all in one! Yea! Gena Showalter has some other fang-tab-ulous series, but I have to say I enjoy her Aliens the most.

Kresley Cole’s Immortal’s After Dark

Immortal's After Dark, Paranormal RomanceThis is another series that I picked up late in the game. It was around book four that I plunged in and haven’t looked back since. I’ve actually skipped some, come back and read some again and again – but the main thing is this series is packed with great characters (who doesn’t love some crazy Valkyries!) and great writing. Cole keeps her story-lines PRISTINE! I haven’t found any inconsistencies, or dropped plots. You can read them all crazy like – which is what I have a tendency to do – and still know what is going on in the world of the immortals. You don’t want to pass up this series.
