I've been having trouble getting into anything that holds my attention lately. So I thought about switching romance genre all together. Yesterday , I did a search for vampire books and added some to my RL. So I'm wondering does anyone have suggestions ?

I do like them steamy...

EVERYONE will tell you the same thing - Black Dagger Brotherhood by J R Ward. Dark Lover is the first and they are amazing.

The others I love are Kresley Cole - Immortals after Dark series

Erin McCarthy - Las Vegas vampires (these are pretty funny)

Lyndsay Sands -

Christine Feehan - Carpatian series

I love love love Emma Holly. There are a bunch that have midnight in the title and should be read in order.

ETA: I looked at your rl and I also liked the Kathy Love books, Kerrelyn Sparks and Amanda Ashley. I just finished 2 by her something like Bound by Blood and the other in that series and I enjoyed them.

You will be totally in love with vampires from now on just like I am.

Along with JR Ward, Kresley Cole, I am also putting out there, Nalini Singh's Angel series. There are vampires in the books, but it is primarily about angels. Very good series though.

You might also want to take a look at the Paranormal thread and this topic in particular:   http://www.paperbackswap.com/Paranormal-Series-Updated-4-26/topic/59801/   While it hasn't been updated in a while it does show many of the great vampire series by author. This is also where a lot of the vampire romances wind up being posted. 

And of course New Paranormal Books to Wishlist Thread which is kept up to date.

Black Dagger Brotherhood and also Lara Adrian's series.  Both are beyond excellent.

Yes yes yes!!! Definitely the Black Dagger Brotherhood! LOL   And Adrian's Midnight Breeds.  Another really good PNR, there are vamps....among others...is the Demonica series by Larissa Ione.

My two favorite vampire series are Molly Harper's Jane Jamison series, and Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress World.

The Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh is not about vampires but the series is beyond awesome and if you don't read PNR, it would definitely be a genre change for you.

Lisa - Try this link for your reminder list so other people can see it.

http://www.paperbackswap.com/LisasRL/tag/267408/

The one you posted had the ?mbr_only=1 at the end and that makes it so only you can see the link.
