If you prefer your romance with a bit of an edge and aren’t opposed to a graphic violence, sex and language with dark (sometimes disturbing) themes, then we recommend the following.

Series

The Dark Light of Day by T.M. Frazier

So this isn’t officially a series, it’s a standalone with a sequel novella, but these books lead into the King series as somewhat of a prequel (with the characters crossing over) so we thought they were definitely worth a mention.
