The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy is hilarious..not really fantasy genre but a cutesy funny silly sorta chicklit/romance type.

Rhyannon Byrd has a trilogy with Silhouette Nocturne called the Bloodrunners trilogy. they were pretty good and the storyline continued throughout all 3 books. I think she and silhouette to make it into a series instead of stopping with the three.

I think Derek's Bane by Davidson is a werewolf book..haven't read it yet but believe it's the same author who did the  undead series about the female vampire so I expect it's funny/silly/sorta romance-y perhaps.

oops forgot kathy love has one 'my sister is a werewolf' but the 3 that go before it are about vampire brothers..just the sister is the werewolf and she's the last book - fangs for the memories, fangs but no fangs, i only have fangs for you, my sister is a werewolf - these are  mostly light f unny romances and light on the paranormal..the werewolf one is probably the 'darkest' and it's really not all that dark; just in comparison.

the paranormal forum has lots of threads and I've seen werewolf books recommended I was just asking about some by an author I just happend to notice on someone's shelf and I noticed 'wolf' in the title.

oops forgot about Briggs! I've read the intro story to 'cry wolf' in 'on the prowl'-it's a short story in an anthology but Cry wolf picks up right where that story ends.

Keri Author has a series about werewolves. Most of them are available thru PBS.

And while they aren't werewolves but werecats Stray and Rogue by Rachel Vincent are similar.

I thought the Accidental Werewolf was a hoot!

Oh, how could I forget The Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton? Those have it all! Vampires, Werewolves, Zombies not to mention some very interesting humans!

The Accidental Werewolf is hilarious! I can't believe I forgot that one!  I laughed a lot reading that one; enough that I ordered the sequel but that one's a vampire I think. hmm I wonder if you can have a werewolf vampire??

Also, Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series starts off with werewolves.  Bitten, Stolen and Broken focus on Elena (and she's a character in most of the rest of the series).

the werewolf one was my favorite of Tanya Huff's Blood series.  recently i read a Christmas Carol-like short story in her collection Blood Bank that gave us a brief glimpse at the family years later.

Carrie Vaughn's Kitty series is werewolves.  yes, a werewolf named Kitty.  ;)

i really enjoyed the Thrall trilogy (the "Touch of" books) by C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp.  they're all listed as romance, but the first two seem more like urban fantasy to me with a little bit of romance as they concentrate on staying alive, but the third definitely leans more towards romance.

it seems like it should be easy to think of more, but that's what i'm coming up with looking at my keeper shelves.

Sarah A Hoyt has written two were books.  But not wolves.  Draw One in the Dark and Gentleman Takes a Chance.

Eileen Wilks has a series starting with Temping Danger

Wen Spencer's Ukiah Oregan series is sort of werewolf. 

Wolfbane and Mistletoe is a great collection of stories.

Carole Nelson Douglas has a series, Dancing with Werewolves and Brimstone Kiss. She's a well-regarded mystery writer (the Irene Adler series and the Midnight Louie series) so her writing is a cut above a lot of the other paranormal romance writers.

C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp also write the Tales of the Sazi series- which I am hooked on!  Lots of action, lots of romance, and hot werewolves!

I was disappointed by Dancing With Werewolves.  I expected better from C N Douglas after reading some of her previous books.  Felt like she was told these types of books sell rather than loving the genre.

I loved Accidental Werewolf! I am about to start Accidentally Dead.  A 3rd comes out in that series soon too!

 am listening to Bitten by Kelley Armstrong. I am really getting into it and now can't find #2 on audio! The rest are recorded just not #2.. Oh well, I will read it and like it as much but once I hear a voice to a character on audio I like to continue.

Never Ceese by Sue Dent. Sequel is Forever Richard but it's not out yet. A vampire and a werewolf join forces against a scientist who wants to use their blood to achieve immortality. Christian themes.

Let me second a few books and suggest new ones:

All of Patricia Briggs' werewolf books; she is fantastic!

Kelley Armstrong (Bitten, Stolen, Broken, and to come out this year Frostbitten)

Blood and Chocolate (but never see the movie!)

Naked Brunch (I read it a long time ago but I remember it being funny and very good; for adult readers, not graphic but theres some stuff in there ^_^)

The Wolving Hour (a YA book, very cute)

The Prowlers Quartet by Christopher Golden (a great read for teens)

Personally, I didnt like the Kitty books, I thought it was dull. But if everyone is suggesting Accidental Werewolf, Ill pick that one up when next I get the chance.
