I have read (own) J.R. Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Christine Feehan (got tired of it), Katie Maccalister (just dragons), Keri Arther, Karen Chance, Gena Showalter, Patricia Briggs, Kresley Cole, some Jaquclyn Frank, some Charlaine Harris, Meredith Genry fairie princess, Larissa Ione, Nalini Singh, Kim Harrison.

 

Currently  I have started Kitty Norville series, Rachel Vincent, Christine Warren, and Immortal series by popp, ashley and nash.

However, I read so fast and so much that they won't last long (depends if I get into them as well)

I am looking for more good authors iin this genre.  Pm me or message me on here to give me more insight.

You might also like:  Jeanne C Stein (Anna Strong Series), Michele Bardsley (Broken Heart vampire series), Laurell K Hamilton (Anita Blake series), & Lori Handeland (Night Creatures).

If you also like YA, the Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine is really good.

Dianne Sylvan The first book is Queen of Shadows. One of my new favorite vampire series. If you are in for a laugh and some heat try the Dragon Kin series by G A Aiken. The first book is Dragon Actually.

I find Sharrie Kohler's series really good, Barbara Bretton's Sugar Maple series, and Darynda Jones Urban Fantasy series, also. I gave up on Feehan's Drake sisters once the sisters were gone, and gave up on Christine Warren. All Warren's books were retitled, the 6th book turned out to be the first, and on and on. Terri Garey has two series I read, the first is Nicki Styx, and then a spin-off which is about Sammy Divine, the devil. Love...Ward, Harris, Kenyon, Bardsley, Davidson, Handeland, Shayne, and Sparks.

Darynda Jones is my absolute new favorite. Not really romance because the happy ending may be a long way off.

I really loved L.A. Banks' Vampire Huntress series, although the dialogue did take some getting used to. Rachel Vincent's Shifter series was excellent, too. Those two series have both been keepers for me.

I  enjoy most of the authors you listed  and suggest you look into

Ilona Andrews   Darynda Jones    Cat Adams   Josselyn Drake     Jeanniene Frost  and simply must read Jim Butcher.

If I could only read three authors for the rest of my life it would be Butcher, Andrews, Chance. In that order

L.A. Banks were series is good too.  Gini Koch, Adrian Phoenix, Kathy Love, Rob Thurman, Seanan McGuire are some other authors I enjoy.   New authors are starting so many series now too that where I thought I was a fast reader--I now have a pile up of TBR books:lol:   Not a bad problem to have just a bit space restrictive.

I have really liked Lynn Viehl's Darkyn series, very unique take on vampirism (medical-virus) and has some romance.  She has a followup series of the Kyndred and has now just started another take on Darkyn (will be a trilogy).  Should be read in order.

I agree on the L.A. Banks, fast moving story but dialog can make me laugh at times.

Didn't care for Carrie Vaughn Kitty series, her personality just didn't make me like the main character.  I enjoy Patricia Briggs and guess that colored my view of female werewolves and pack behavior.  I am almost finished with Kelley Armstrong's Bitten and like it a bit better, still like Briggs the best though.

Kat Richardson's Greywalker series is nice take on the private investigator in a paranormal world, she sees ghosts literally.
