The actual story is about the dealings of the sinister DOATEC corporation, who hold the Dead or Alive tournament as a front to finance the genetic research in creating the ultimate fighter. Even though the male fighters (initially) outnumber the female fighters by a slim margin, it's the women who are the real stars of the show.7.) Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed – this series helped me when I needed a Black Dagger Brotherhood fix.Another group of male vampire warriors protecting their species, and the human population from evil (and there is plenty of it).
multi-tier environments, the 16 characters with the... Ayane, who is also looking for Hayate, is required to kill her half-sister Kasumi (as desertion from a ninja clan is punishable by death); Ryu Hayabusa (remember him? Despite the vast quantities of Jiggle Physics, the game actually has a great deal of independent merit of its own, being much more fast-paced and kinetic than the 3D fighters that it competes with while remaining technical and reasonably well-balanced.6.) Jill Myles’s Succubus Diaries Jackie, a normal human female, suddenly turned into a gorgeous succubus is struggling. Does she want Noah – a gorgeous fallen angel with a heart of gold or his bad-boy counterpart, Zane, another fallen angel now turned vampire who made a deal with devil just to get his wings back.Well, that’s not all of it, but it sure is what kept me reading. evil, where “good” isn’t always “good”, and “bad” isn’t always evil. I tried to number them in order of favorites, but really, that was too hard since I liked so many of them equally. From sweet and innocent to bad-ass and hungry, my vampire tastes have changed significantly because of Eric.Oh and, yeah ok, I also cheated cause there are more than 10 (this is also a , so comment here, or join me there, and maybe we can change this list even more! This is one series that I can easily read again and again. 2.) Charlaine Harris’s Southern Vampire Mysteries (Sookie Stackhouse Series) This was the second series I read in the genre, and I hesitated because I didn’t think it was possible to ever love any vampire more then Edward. While only a few of the heroes have a “vampire-y bite” in this series, they are all fighting a war against a certain kind of evil vampire.Later on, the story shifts towards Helena Douglas, who is the daughter of the original leader of DOATEC, Fame Douglas, and the current heiress to the DOATEC chair. Additional things that this should not be confused with can be found on Main. So, I “tied” many at the same number, and even still, I second guess my placement of them. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood Series One of the first series I obsessed over, and each and EVERY brother made me swoon. 3.) Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunters I *crushed* over and over again.8.) Kathy Love’s Bourbon Street Trilogy (a little danger, but mostly just romance).It’s the whole “love at first site in a bar” thing, but that’s actually what hooked me. It’s about a trio of girlfriends on vacation in New Orleans. Other characters enter the tournament for their own personal reasons, but all get sucked into DOATEC's larger scheme. A runaway ninja named Kasumi gets tangled in the struggle, using the tournament as a means of escape and to look for her lost brother Hayate, and take revenge on her traitorous uncle, Raidou.
