This paranormal romance series hooked me to the Romance genre once and for all. The Darkest London series follows three sisters and their various supernatural acquaintances in Victorian England. There's adventure, there's horrible deeds, there's heroes lurking in the dark - all framed by a magical investigative organization that's as old as it is secret. It's like Gail Carriger's Soulless series but with more fabled creatures and very steamy couplings.
Small town Southern waitress Sookie Stackhouse has come to terms with being a mind reader. She's even getting comfortable with dating a vampire. But there are far more otherworldly things in rural Louisiana (and big city Dallas) than she ever imagined!
