I have read Charlain Harris, MaryJanice Davidson and Erin McCarthy...I would love to find more
of this style, vampire (or paranormal) humorous.

Any recommendations?

thanks

Dawn

I asked a very similar question in the paranormal forum a while back and got tons of recommendations..the post may be on the 2nd page or so by now.

Kerrelyn Sparks was a recommendation I got from Ellen..they're nice romances with some funny moments.

Kathy Love's young brothers (fangs for the memories, fangs but no fangs, i only have fangs for you, my sister is a werewolf) were good but thought the first 2 were the best.

erotic romance or borderline this genre(fairly  hot and funny) shelly laurenston's the mane event. I have the next 2 in my tbr but I've read the mane event and it has 2 related stories and is funny. not vampire but shapeshifters(lion, wolf)

I have more recs in my tbr but those are the ones I've actually read...I also read 2 others that were ok-good but just not my cuppa entirely because the vamps weren't necessarily in a deathsleep during the day - bitten & smitten(funny/silly but not much of a romance imo) and happy hour at casa dracula.

oh, a funny werewolf story is the accidental werewolf by dakota cassidy - hysterical. there's a sequel that I think is 'accidentally dead' and another lined up 'accidentally  human' haven't read any but the first but it was funny as all get-out.

http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=138595  maybe this link will work to that thread in the paranormal forum.. I also have amanda ashley's vampire romances and lynsay sands' argneau series(part of it anyways) in my tbr...

The series by Kresley Cole has recurring characters that are Vampires - all funny but great romances.

You could try the the Broken Heart Oklahoma books by Michele Bardsley.  They are funny :)   The first one is I'm the Vampire, That's Why and there's 4 in the series so far, with #5 to come out in May of 2009.

Thanks :)

If you like Shifters, you might try Shelley Laurenston:  Pack Challenge, The Main Event, and The Main Attraction.   They are all great.    And, she writes about dragons, under the name G.A. Aiken:   About a Dragon, and Dragon, Actually

I'm not a big vampire fan. But there's a series about a plus size vampire.  I read one of them-Real Vampires Live Large.  It had a strong comedic aspect.

Katie MacAlister's vamp series.  The first is A Girl's Guide to Vampires.
