Latest reads in the Paranormal Romance genre

I recently started the "Brotherhood of Blood" series by Kathryn Smith. It's not bad. I like the overall story, it's not too smutty and the characters have some depth. Once again it's a series that each book is told from a different character's POV but what can you do? If you like Paranormal Romance in a classical vampire set you'll enjoy these. The first book really reminded me of a "Gone with the Wind" type time period. I certainly prefer modern settings more but this is a fun read.

Also, recently started the "Immortals After Dark" series by Kresley Cole. So far I've only read the first book but I liked it so much I couldn't put it down. It's the first time I've zoomed through a 350-400 page book in 24 hours in a long time. It kept me entertained through my glucose test at the OBs office :) I really liked the depth of the characters I think she could have gone a little deeper but the story was so different from others I've read that it kept me hanging on every word. I think the only other series I might be able to compare it to is Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series (also another I recommend).

Latest Patricia Briggs

So, I recently finished the latest Mercy Thompson novel by Patricia Briggs "Silver Borne" I have to say though I liked it I thought it was a little slow. I also thought I missed something between books. It definitely wasn't my favorite. There weren't any intense moments like the others in the series. I really just thought it was a "go between book"
