I agree on Sunshine and Nancy A Collins Sonja Blue series. Wonderful books, and I hope Robin writes a sequel to Sunshine.
Of late I’ve been dragged into the ‘Undead and…’ series by Mary Janice Davidson. It starts with Undead and Unwed. Betsy Taylor is having a really bad week, she gets fired and gets hit by a car only to wake up in the morgue wearing her step-mother’s cast offs and not a Prada shoe in sight. It’s a fun series, and I thought I would hate it but I’ve already got the 28th circled as the day to buy the third book in the series.
Susan Sizemore is another good one, she is a romance author but her Laws of the Blood series aren’t.
If you can get your hands on it I would also reccomend As One Dead by Don Bassingthwaite and Nancy Kilpatrick. It’s one of the novels put out by White Wolf from their Vampire game but you don’t have to know anything about the game to read it.
Anne Bishop? I never realized she did vampires. Unless that’s the Black Jewels series? I couldn’t get into that one.
I’ve also read a few of Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s St Germain series which follows the main character (St. Germain) through the centuries. I plan to pick up more and read them.
I have others I liked, but this is enough for now grins
