I love to read the paranormal romances that have characters who are destined mates.  Some I've read, so you have an idea what I mean, are Lara Adrian's vampire series, Kresley Coles Immortal series, Gena Showalter's Atlantis series, etc etc.  I'm NOT a fan of JR Ward or some of the more "out there" paranormal writers.  

I've got two of Lora Leigh's Breed series in my TBR pile and I'd like to read some more if I only knew what they are!

Any suggestions are welcome!

Christine Feehan's Carpathian series (also called "Dark" series as well I believe) is good.

Lyndsy Sands, though her theory allows more than one destined mate in a lifetime.

Michelle Pillow's Dragon Lord series.  The males have a crystal that only glows for their destined mate-who of course are not necessarily cooperative. 

If you don't mind 3somes-Angelia Whiting's Trigon series is pretty good.  There's only 2 so far-that I know of anyway.  The males of the planet tertia can only reproduce if they share a woman. The males are drawn together by fate and then they are led to their female.  But their planet is low on women so fate starts leading them to Earth.  These may only be in e-book form, I'm not sure.

Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series has tham.  So far #3 is the best for the whole Soul Mate thing.  Have you read her suff Sherri?

Katie MacAlister's vamp series-the heros are destined to have a "Beloved" that will save them.  Starts with A Girls Guide to Vampires and then my favorite Sex and the Single Vampire.  Very funny, good reads.
