I'm looking for some books (hopefully paranormal) where the bad guy ends up with the girl. Any suggestions? I haven't found any.

Gosh.  The only one I can even remember wasn't paranormal but a historical that was a take off on Robin Hood.   The Sherriff got Maid Marian in the end.  I'm pretty sure it was erotica as well.

There's one that Evangeline Anderson wrote - "Found" that he is a bad guy, it's the fourth book in the Brides of Kindred series though and you'd have to read the other three to understand what's going on. Also, it just comes in e-book format.

http://www.amazon.com/Found-Brides-Kindred-ebook/dp/B005VXOJ08/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1320682150&sr=1-1

The other three (in order) are...

Claimed

Hunted

Sought

Michelle Pillow has 2 erotic series. In the first series Dragon Lords are the people from one country on a fictional planet.  They are dragonish shifters.  They are kind of at war with the people in a neighboring country-the heroes of her Lords of the Var series.  They're big cat shifters. They're also the bad guys in the first series.

Bound by Honor by Collete Gale. It is erotica and I really liked it.

The only book that I can think of is Dangerous Passions by Lisa Marie Rice but that is not a paranormal.  Doesn't Sherrilyn Kenyon have a Dark Hunter book that features a bad guy?  I want to say the one with Stryker or something similar.

Best I can recommend is the whole Black Dagger Brotherhood series.  These guys are "the good guys" but they are all really, really bad boys.

Not paranormal, but the best "Bad Boy gets girl book" ever is The Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas. It is book 3 in the wallflowers series, so you should read the first 2 so you can hate Sebastian before you learn to love him in "devil"
