Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I'd Recommend To Someone Who Doesn't Read Paranormal Romance

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each Tuesday features a different topic and you post your top ten list related to the topic.
This weeks topic is Top Ten Books I'd Recommend To Someone Who Doesn't Read X (our choice of genre) So here are my recs for people who don't read Paranormal Romance.

1. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
  • This was the book that introduced me to "paranormal romance", I had never heard the term before. But after this book I was hooked on the genre and the series.
2. Dark Lover by J.R. Ward
  • I actually ended picking up both Dark Lover and Lover Eternal, they sat on my shelf for several months. If I would have know how addicting the world was gonna be I would have read them a lot sooner. 
3. A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole
  • AHLNO is the first full book in The Immortals After Dark series. I love the series, Cole writes awesome heroes. What is really great about the series is all the different supernatural creatures that are featured. Vampires, Werewolves, Valkyries, Witches, Demons and more. 
4. Night Pleasures by Sherrilyn Kenyon
  • Night Pleasures is the second book in the Dark-Hunters series and one of my favorites in the series. I don't think I'll ever get sick of these stories. This is another addicting series. If you like tortured souls, you'll enjoy this series.
5. Single White Vampire by Lynsay Sands
  • I picked up SWV thinking it was the first in the series, but its actually the third book. It's my favorite book in the series. Has a great hero and heroine, plus part of the story takes place at the Romantic Times Book Con. Which was just too fun. 
6. Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione
  • Pleasure Unbound wasn't a book I planned to pick up, but I kept hearing time and again how great it was. Turns out all those people were spot on. Ms. Ione writes fantastically bad ass males that are hard to resist. 
7. Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh
  • First book in the Psy/Changeling series, which is paranormal romance, but has a futuristic setting. My friend Amy C got me to read this one. I ended up being blown away by it and went out and bought the rest of the series, it was/is that good. 
8. A Girl's Guide to Vampires by Katie MacAlister
  • Katie MacAlister was another first PNR author I read. A Girl's Guide to Vampires is simply a fun read that introduces the read to the Dark Ones world. I loved it, and it's still one of my favorite books in the series. 
9. Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian
  • This was another book that I didn't originally plan to buy. But between the cover and reviews I read, I couldn't resist picking it. Another great series that has yummy vampire heroes.
10. Desire After Dark- Amanda Ashley
  • Desire After Dark is a pleasure read. A great vampire novel. This probably can be said about many authors, but Amanda Ashley writes vampires amazingly well.
