Linda Robertson's Vicious Circle and Hallowed Circle.  So far books 1 and 2 of at least 4.  Mostly about witches, but has some weres, vampires and fairies too.

Laura Resnick's Esther Diamond series.  I'm halfway through book 2.

Both really good series.

Kristin ,

What do you like about them?  I am hoping to learn more about them, Young Adult or Adult, is there sex/love scenes, steamy, mild, erotica  that is over the top.  Are the vamps, were good guys or bad guys?  Different couple in each book or the same couple in the series?

Jannette, Both series are adult.  They're more urban fantasy than paranormal romance.  Not a lot of sex.  In the Esther Diamond series there hasn't been any more than kissing in the first 2 books.  In the Circle series, there wasn't any sex until halfway through the second.  They both feature the same characters throughout.  The 1st series in about magic with a non magical main character.  The second is about a witch with a were boyfriend.

I read the first Circle book.  I liked it and am looking forward to the second one.  Haven't read the second one yet.

Folks, Laura Resnick series is a reprint / reissue.  The first of the series came out from Luna in 2005.  Good to see it out more widely.

Doppelgangsters (#2)

(#3) coming out in August
