Suggestions anyone? Looking for good romance books where H/h are mates and/or fated (doesn't necessarily have to be a werewolf type story). I especially loved A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole and I like Rebecca York's Moon series as well. I have enjoyed reading most of Lora Leigh's Breeds series too. Thanks and I apologize a head of time if there has already been a previous discussion on these same topic.
In a way, Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld meets this requirement. The demons in the men are usuaully soothed or inexplicably drawn to something in the women, like they were meant only for each other. Besides that aspect, the books are very steamy, the men very alpha, and I wait impatiently for new ones to come out. If you like IAD, you will probably like LOTU; the writing styles are similar.

Wow, I can't believe no one has mentioned The Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward! Talk about hot, hot, hot with unbelievable characters and most definitely fated heroes and heroines! If you've loved Cole and Showalter then you're in for a huge treat if you've not read Ward's books! Happy reading!!
You should check out cl wilsons tairen soul series, the first one is Lord of the Fading Lands It is a 5 book series with the 5th one due out in Oct/Nov time frame about a fae king who meets his true mate. This is one of my all time favorite series.
I've been noticing this a LOT lately in PNR! It seems to be a popular trend: the hero recognizes his destined mate as soon as he gets a whiff of her. It seems to be most prevalent among shifter books, but it's not uncommon among heroes who are demons or fae.... Just a few series/authors that meet this criterion, off the top of my head:
Most (all?) of the Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole (A HUNGER LIKE NO OTHER, which you mention, is the first; but the others are even better, IMO) The Riley Jensen series by Keri Arthur (although the concept of soul mates isn't as romantic here as it is in other PNR. After all, what happens if you loathe your soul mate?) Pretty much everything by Shelly Laurenston Pretty much everything by Dana Marie Bell
