Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Characters In Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy

I wasn’t sure which genre I’d pick for this week’s topic, but I do plenty of YA ones, so I decided to make this one a list of adult ones in Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy romance. Here we go!

1. Shane McAllister – WVMP Radio series by Jeri Smith-Ready – This 1990s music loving vampire stole my heart in Wicked Game, and now that the series is complete I plan to read all of it.

2. Georgina Kincaid – Succubus Blues series by Richelle Mead – She is such a fun, likeable character. Our reluctant succubus will worm her way into your heart. Also, I should technically add SETH to this one, since I love him more than Georgina, but you’ve heard about him enough already. :)

3. Carter & Jerome – Succubus Blues series by Richelle Mead – This angel & demon duo bring such a great dynamic to this series. Jerome is over the top and Carter is subtle and sardonic. I LOVE THEM!

4. Dorian – Dark Swan series by Richelle Mead – Yet another Mead character. I love her so. :) Dorian is an anti-hero for a long time in this series until…well, until you read it and find out what I’m talking about. He’s sexy and likes to play with ribbons. :D

5. Bones – Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost – Best. Vampire. EVER!

6. Elena & Raphael – Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh – This couple of angels are beautiful together. And are both BAD. ASS!

7. Elena, Clay, Jeremy, and Lucas – Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong – This series has A LOT of characters, but my favorites are these. And they are from the first and second book…out of 13! That says a lot about them. :)

8. Dark-HuntersSherrilyn Kenyon – This series is so immense and has so many characters that it would be impossible to name all of them.

9. Lords of the UnderworldGena Showalter – These guys live with demons inside of them and yet are so easy to fall for. Love them!

10. Black Dagger BrotherhoodJ.R. Ward – OH MY GAAAAAH! This series, y’all!!! ALL THE FEELS!

    I read Wicked Game and Bad to the Bone way before my blogging days.. I should probably finish this series, too. Love Jeri!

    Just reading this reminds me that I do not read nearly enough paranormal romance, which is odd because I actually do like them. AND AND I love the authors you’ve listed here — at least their YA series (Kelley Armstrong and Richelle Mead) SO your post has convinced me I need to give their grown up books a shot. YAY. JUST YAYYYYY.

    I read Bitten last year, and really enjoyed it. I loved Elena as a character, and werewolves are so much fun to write and read about. :)

    Oh wow, I haven’t read any of these! They sound really good though, will definitely have to give some of them a try. :-) Great list – lots to look out for!

    So, I am epically failing at paranormal romance, I think. I’ve heard of lots of these books, but read none. EEP! I have heard LOTS of great things about The Black Dagger Brotherhood, so maybe I’ll start there. YAY!!

    I’m going to take your last statement (about BDB) to mean that I should read this series. My sister was telling me I should while I was on vacation, but I was pretty unsure.
