I picked some of those up a couple of weeks ago. I started making a spreadsheet and marking them off as I get them.

Another I have read was Kerrilyn Spark - her series was good. Also just started reading Gena Showalter's books.

Kerrilyn - yes
Gena Showalter - no - she has several different series, but they are pretty hot characters.

Jill,

Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series is a mixture of Vampire/Greek Mythology, which is an interesting combination. Like the BDB books, they slowly build on each, but not where you must read them in order. It's good if you can, just because you pick up on small details...but they aren't quite as interwoven as J.R. Ward's BDB series.

Sherrilyn Kenyon also writes as Kinley MacGregor...that is her pen name for historicals. I haven't read all of those, but the books I have read were good. One series is called The Lords of Avalon and it is supposed to be good. I haven't tried it yet.
