Edge Of Hunger (Primal Instinct)
3.  Edge Of Hunger (Primal Instinct) by Rhyannon Byrd

The Darkest Night (Hqn)
4.  The Darkest Night (Hqn) by Gena Showalter

Ecstasy: The Shadowdwellers
5.  Ecstasy: The Shadowdwellers by Jacquelyn Frank
The list author says:
  "This, the first in Frank's Shadowdwellers series, is my favorite to date. So far I prefer her Shadowdwellers to her Nightwalkers."

Night Magic: A Wing Slayer Novel
6.  Night Magic: A Wing Slayer Novel by Jennifer Lyon
The list author says:
  "What I really liked about this book is that once they come together, the hero and heroine are inextricably tied together in an ancient cycle. His tattoo, her vision and song, and the imagery created by the author are lovely."
$7.19   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld)
7.  The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld) by Gena Showalter
The list author says:
  "This and The Darkest Night are my favorites in Showalter's series. The demon of doubt manifests itself in truly frustrating ways, both for the hero and the heroine, that I'm sincerely impressed the author came up with it. Also in its favor is that this is where I came into the series, and was able to keep up even though it's nowhere near the first installment."
$6.47   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (204 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Derik's Bane (Berkley Sensation)
8.  Derik's Bane (Berkley Sensation) by MaryJanice Davidson
The list author says:
  "While I'm also a fan of Undead and Unwed, to me Derik's Bane is the best of MaryJanice Davidson's paranormals. She totally "gets" the "dogginess" of the werewolf hero, and the hero and heroine together are adorable. For those interested in her non-paranormal stuff, I recommend her Royal series, particularly The Royal Mess."

Master of Fire (Berkley Sensation)
9.  Master of Fire (Berkley Sensation) by Angela Knight
The list author says:
  "None of the stories in the Mageverse series earned as high a grade as the other titles above it on this list, but it's overall consistent quality and unique premise make it worth inclusion. My favorites are Master of Fire, Master of Smoke, and Master of Wolves."

Alpha & Omega: A Companion Novella to Cry Wolf
10.  Alpha & Omega: A Companion Novella to Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs
The list author says:
  "This short story, an introduction to the author's Alpha and Omega series, is actually my favorite entry of the series. It's the strongest romantically, and sets up the series in a great way. Originally published in the On the Prowl anthology, the story is worth the anthology's list price."
