My absolute favorite is Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

Other good ones: Rachel Gibson, Carly Phillips *only the Hot series*, I'm sure other people have some authors I'm not thinking of at the moment.

Marianne Stillings, Beth Ciotta, Erin McCarthy. 

Also Jayne Ann Krentz has a series that's sort of futuristic that's quite entertaining: Afterglow, Dark Light, Silver Master and Obsidian Prey are a few of the titles in that series.   It's kind of related to the older Harmony series and the Arcase Society books but distantly so you can read it as an independant series.  Some of them are really funny with the "dust bunnies".

Great! I'm going to be looking at some of these. Harlequin used to have a humorous line years ago, but stopped publishing them.

oops forgot about Bet Me! Getting Rid of Bradley was cute too.

if you like paranormal G.A. Aiken's dragon books are funny(laughing through one now) and she writes as Shelly Laurenston also and those are funny -just a lot of sex and some have pretty strong language(hey I swear like a sailor at tmes yet  notced it LOL!) shapeshifters with humor.
