What is your favorite romance series ever? I'm looking for a couple to read in 2008. I especially love historicals and have not read many paranormals. Please list series in order, OK?
This should be fun to hear all of your great responses!

Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series ranks as one of my faves, along with Katie MacAlister's Aisling Grey, Guardian series, Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series, and Kimberly Raye's Lil Marchette series (all paranormal romances).
In the historical line, I really like Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series, Julia London's Desperate Debutantes, Kinley MacGregor's MacAllisters series.
gosh I have to narrow them down? what if I forget some??!! :-) lemme think on it but off-hand
Nora Roberts' 'Born In' trilogy - born in fire, born in ice, born in shame
suzanne brockmann's tall dark and dangerous series(silhouette and reprints)
Merline Lovelace's 'cleo north' trilogy - not as much romance but very good
Linda Howard's Mackenzie series - originally silhouette type stories and one in a christmas anthology(mara's story)
suzanne brockmann's troubleshooters series
susan andersen's 'head over heels', 'getting lucky', and 'hot and bothered'
I know there are more but drew a blank! not related in aseries but the Nerd books by thompson are really funny sexy reads!
For historical series I really enjoyed:
Elizabeth Hoyt's The Raven Prince, The Leopard Prince & The Serpent Prince
Lucy Monroe's Touch Me, Tempt Me & Take Me
Julia Quinn's Splendid, Dancing At Midnight & Minx and also her Bridgerton series
Karen Marie Moning's Highlander books. Most involve time travel, Scotland, Druids and the Fey.
For contemporary I second Nora Roberts' Born In trilogy and her Gallaghers of Ardmore trilogy ( Jewels of the Sun, Tears of the Moon, & Heart of the Sea) is also a favorite.
I loved Kasey Michaels Beckett's of Romney March series. And the Boscastle series by Jillian Hunter. Those are historicals.
The Kresley Cole McKerrick brothers books were great (If you Dare, If You Deceive and If You Desire). Also Historicals
I also really liked the Monica McCarty Highlander historical series that came out earlier this year.
Right now I'm enthralled with a paranormal contemporary series by Deidre Knight. It's the Parallel series about one group of aliens trying to save earth from being taken over by another group of aliens that already took over the former's planet. There's romance, sci-fi, action, time travel and alternate timelines. The books in order are: Parallel Attraction, Parallel Heat, Parallel Seduction and Parallel Desire. I'm almost through Parallel Seduction. They have to be read in order to really follow the story.
For some lightweight fun contemporaries: Carly Phillips Simply series was a fun read. They can be read out of order. They are just connected by cross-over characters.
I also will add Julia London's Lockhart series in the historical genre, and Alyssa Day's Warriors of Poseidon books (two thus far) in the paranormal genre.

Stephanie Laurens Cynster Series is a massive favorite of mine. It is historical. All of the others already mentioned are good as well.
Julie Garwood - The Lion's Lady, Guardian Angel, The Gift and Castles (all interconnected characters) Also historical.
Jane Feather's V Series is another good one - Virtue, Vixen, Velvet, Valentine, Violet, Vanity and Vice.(Not really connected except the fact that they all start with V but all very good) Again, it's historical!

Oh wow - make it hard! LOl
My all time favorite is Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series (time travel). Christine Feehan's Ghostwalker series (paranormal), Suzanne Brockmanns Troubleshooters series (contemporary military), Robyn Carr's Virgin River series (contemporary), Lucy Monroe's Ready, Willing & Able series(contemporary military), Karen Marie Monings Highlander and Fever series and Lori Foster's Ultimate Fighter series.
Most of the ones I can think of are mentioned...but as to the Susan Andersen books, there's 1 more "Coming Undone" just came out this year and it's connected to them as well:)
Julie Garwood's "The Bride" and "The Wedding" are the only 2 connected there, but soooo good:) Also the Clayborne series is pretty good as well.
Jo Beverley's Company of Rogues and Malloreen series's are great historicals.
Catherine Anderson's Kendrick/Coulter/Harriagan series is contemproary but VERY good.
Another good contemporary series is Maureen Child...
