    Rosemary Laurey writes adult vampire romances that are so good. Some of the titles include: Love me forever, Kiss me forever, Keep me forever...and there's more I just can't remember them all.

    Nora Roberts also writes awesome novels and a lot of hers also have paranormal elements like witches, vamps etc.
