Ten Favorite Urban Fantasy/Dark Fantasy Romances

Laurie Gold "Book Savant"
The list author says: "Urban Fantasy/Dark Fantasy Romances quickly followed Urban Fantasy onto the reading landscape...and I'm a big fan. Here are my favorites to date."
Shadow Touch (Dirk & Steele, Book 2)
Shadow Touch (Dirk & Steele, Book 2)
"The second entry in Marjorie Liu's fascinating Dirk and Steele series shares honors with Tiger Eye as my favorite titles in the series, all of which I've enjoyed."
Tiger Eye (Dirk & Steele, Book 1)
Tiger Eye (Dirk & Steele, Book 1)
"The first entry in Marjorie Liu's fascinating Dirk and Steele series shares honors with Shadow Touch as my favorite titles in the series, all of which I've enjoyed."
Edge Of Hunger (Primal Instinct)
Edge Of Hunger (Primal Instinct)
"This book kicked off Byrd's Primal Instinct series and remains my favorite of the three published to date. I'm also a fan of some of the author's erotic romances."
The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld)
The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld)
"This is my favorite title to date in Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series, which has a terrific Greek mythology premise. I've enjoyed the entire series to date."
Ecstasy: The Shadowdwellers
Ecstasy: The Shadowdwellers
"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
Night Magic: A Wing Slayer Novel
"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."
The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld)
The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld)
"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."
Derik's Bane (Berkley Sensation)
Derik's Bane (Berkley Sensation)
"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 (Mageverse series Book 6)
Master of Fire (Mageverse series Book 6)
"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 (Alpha and Omega)
Alpha & Omega: A Companion Novella to Cry Wolf (Alpha and Omega)
"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."
