Looking for a good read? I like paranormal, dark romance..?

    You could try Stacia Kane. She's got a couple series out, and the most recent one (I guess it's call the Downside series, and it starts with UNHOLY GHOSTS) is probably where I'd start. It's not exclusively romance, but it's dark and paranormal with definite elements of romance. The first two are out, and a third is due in a few (i.e., three) days.

    Sounds like you and I share similar tastes

    Linnea Sinclair - more of a sci-fi romance (Star Wars/Star Trek) but her heroine's are always kick a@@

    Chloe Neill - Chicagoloand Vampires - Very good series - and ALL the sexual tension in this book is keyed from the heroine's strength and refusal to play the damsel in distress

    I enjoyed Karen Chance, more action than romance, but they are still pretty good- with a touch of humor

    Hope this helps

    Laurie Notaro just wrote a great book called, "Spooky Little Girl." She usually writes independent, HILARIOUS autobiographies. This is her second fiction book, and it's really good. She's one of my favorite authors.

    Also, "20's Girl," by Sophie Kinsella is another great dark, paranormal fiction book. This book has a romance in it as well, and I think it covers all the aspects you're looking for. Good luck!
