I decided to take a break from regency and historical. I Found dakota cassidy's the accidental werewolf....which was quirky. But wanted something more. so,I started reading Kerrelyn Sparks' how to marry a millionaire vampire, loved it.  I've read all the books from the love at stake series out. while I wait for the upcoming books, can anyone recommend some great paranormal? thanks!

Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series is really good. You should check out the Paranormal threads. There are so many good series out there. I've been on a paranormal kick for a while now.

I love the Love at Stakes series! I just finished the newest one Friday morning! :-)

I also liked Kathy Love's Young Brothers - Fangs for the Memories, Fangs but No Fangs, I only  have fangs for you, and my sister is a werewolf. The first 2 were my favorites. Her newest vamp series isn't as light/funny IMO but still pretty good.

I've only read the first in Kresley Cole's and have the next 5 in tbr...if you want humor and erotica/borderline erotica you might like Shelly Laurenston and her dragon books under G.A. Aiken.

also check out the paranormal forum..somewhere on page 2 or 3 or so by now probably! I had a post asking for light/funny and got a LOT of recommendations. Ellen got me into the kerrelyn sparks books and so far they've been my favorites!

J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood books are AMAZING.  Anything by Sherrilyn Kenyon is worth reading.  I'm going to agree with everyone else about the Kresley Cole books.  They rock.  And finally, the Susan Sizemore Prime & Clan series is great too.

I've been reading the Demonica series by Larissa Ione--Pleasure Unbound, Desire Unchained, Passion Unleashed. I read the 1st and I'm almost done with the 2nd one. If you don't mind young adult books, then I recommend the House of Night series by P C Cast and Kristin Cast--Marked, Chosen, Betrayed, Untamed, and Hunted--or the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead--Vampire Academy, Frostbite, and Shadow Kiss.

Christine Feehan's Game series.  Deborah Cooke's Kiss series.

I was not impressed by Deborah Cooke's series.  Way down on my recommendation list. 

Now Eileen Wilks, I'll recommend her to any romance reader.  Strong women.  Oh yes.  Oh my.

You could try Lynsay Sands I really like her books but  I have to agree The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series is AMAZING!!

Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Norville books are amazing. I've been a fan since Book 1. In order they are: Kitty and the Midnight Hour, Kitty Goes to Washington, Kitty Takes a Holiday, Kitty and the Silver Bullet, Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand, and Kitty Raises Hell. 7 will be out next January and she's starting work on 8.

Not "exactly" paranormal, but kinda... Karen Marie Moning's Highland Series (6 book I think) and then 3 "Fae" books.  If you read those, you can start with the Highland books first.

But Carrie and Kitty have much more urban fantasy and much less romance.  I love the Kitty books.  But there is no HEA.  As we are under Love and Romance, I feel I need to say that.  Over in paranormal forum, I'll gush about Carrie, Rob Thurman, and Jim Butcher.  Here I feel like I should mention Tate Hallaway and Wen Spencer's Tinker.  More romance, less urban.

You might think about giving Nalini Singh a try.  She is my new favorite author.  I can't wait for her next book.  She has 5 Psy Changeling books (and at least one novella) and one Guild Hunter book, which is also excellent.  Also, as this is the Romance forum, all of them have a HEA.
