A couple of my favorite paranormal/urban fantasy authors right now are Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and Carrie Vaughn. For books, I would recommend:
Magic Bites - Ilona Andrews
Moon Called - Patricia Briggs
Kitty & The Midnight Hour - Carrie Vaughn
Thank you for recommend I decided to go with Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews. I had never heard of her before. The book looks like fun. Dawn look out for an email sometime today.
