ONE WOMAN'S JUNK has me and I don't even like Urban Fantasy. Okay, maybe I better go see what else Tanya Huff's got.
As a blogging book reviewer, I'd just like to say weekly columns like this are *excellent* marketing!

Kimber An, you should check out Tanya Huff's Blood Books. The first is called Blood Price, and a TV series based on those books was also created (it's called Blood Ties, and it's awesome--one of my favorite canceled-too-early shows).
