Hi,
For a change of pace, I like to read funny paranormal romance between some of the darker urban fantasy and paranormal novels. I created this list of some of my favorite humorous paranormal romances. I'm wondering if anyone can suggest others that they liked? I'd love to find some more great laugh-out-loud books!

Ooh.. Katie McCalister, Lyndsay Sands and Kathy Cook (?) all write funny pnr books, and I thought Christine Warren's first book (the one with the vampire) was amusing as well.

I have to agree with Amy. Lyndsay Sands' Argeneau vampire series is full of comedy. Try Accidental Vampire first.

I just finished the Queen Betsy Series. I chose that series for the same reasons you are. I kinda needed a break from the darker side of the paranormal. It did the trick! ;) Now im back to a classic..Feehans Dark series. I read one about every few months. Happy Reading!

Anything by Shelly Laurenston/G.A. Aiken, Kerrilyn Sparks, Lynsay Sands, and Kathy Love! I'm thinking that's who you meant Amy :).

Add Minda Webber to that list if you don't mind parodies and the absurd.

Absolutely, M.Vander-- THAT'S who I was thinking of! (And I second the Queen Betsy series. Very funny.) Nina Bangs is also fairly humorous.

I just finished the first book of Molly Harper's Nice Girls series, Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs, and I know I'll be getting more! Silly, snarky and just plain funny!
Also, the Brokenheart, OK series by Michele Bardsley are a lot of fun.

Sometimes, I also need a break from some of the more "darker", and the more "sexier" paranormals.
I agree with all of the previous suggestions, and I would like to add a couple more.
Dakota Cassidy and Karen Kelley round out my list.

Wow, thanks! I'm so excited to come across some new names in these suggestions. I'll check them out.

L Magee, the reviews on Cassidy's and Kelley's books look interesting. I'm going to order a couple to try them out. Did you see that Kelley has a shapeshifter book coming out in a few months -- The Jaguar Prince? That looks like it will be good.

Something weird happened in that one shortcut I pasted for you...let me try again.

Molly Harper's new paranormal series is hilarious! I'd also recommend Chloe Neill's Chicagoland vamp series. Both series are very funny!!!

Andrea, I love Neill's Chicagoland Vamps series. I didn't think about those. They are a bit funny at times. Great books! I haven't read Harper's series. Will check those out.

Gena, I will check out your suggestions too. I haven't read those yet either. Thanks!

I, too, am a fan of the combo paranormal/romance/humor genre with hot alpha males. For me J.R. Ward is the queen of this market and I've been searching for another author who can compares to her writing style. Still looking... However, try the Atlantis series by Gena Showalter. And thanks for your recommendations.

Gerry Bartlett's Real Vampire Series with Gloriana St. Claire and Tate Hallaway's Dead Series featuring Garnet Lacey.

Chichimo, Thanks for the recommendations. I haven't read either of those series yet. I'm just ordering the first Tate Hallaway book now.

I also enjoy the Casa Dracula series by Marta Acosta. The first book is called Happy Hour at Casa Dracula.

the Night huntress series by Jeaniene frost has many laugh out loud scenes in it. (some might think it's too serious tho')

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 26, 2010, 7:00:21 PM PST
Julie Kenner has a series of hilarious soccer mom turned demon hunter novels. I had to read all them and they are quite funny.
Love the Queen Betsy and the Argenou vamp series too!

Shelly Laurenston (Aiken not so much)
Jennifer Rardin
Jeaniene Frost
Chloe Neill (if it belongs in this genre, good series)
I'm not the only one that considers J.R. Ward amusing?

The rest just read as silly for me, broken funny bone apparently...

I agree that the BDB have some very amusing moments. They are just overshadowed by everything else.
Erin McCarthy's Vegas Vampires had some good scenes. Angela Knight's Mageverse has a wry sense of humor to it. JL Langley's With Love short had 2 of the most LOL scenes I have read in years. I was crying at a scene where someone attacked a smoke alarm.

S. Cook,
Have you read the 'Love at Stake' series by Kerrilyn Sparks? The first book, 'How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire', is hilarious. The subsequent books are funny, too, but the author seemed to exercise her funny bone the best in the odd numbered books of the series: first, third and fifth.

The Immortals After Dark Series by Kresley Cole. "Nucking Futs" Nix is laugh out loud funny. Especially the Mike Rowe stuff.
