Kim Harrison’s Hollows series
Kim Harrison dives a little more directly into the world of the supernatural. Pixies, leprechauns and elves are almost immediately accepted as commonplace, which sets it apart from Sookie Stackhose’s world. But Rachel Mariana Morgan, a witch trying to get out of a sticky business, makes for, we think, a much stronger character than Sookie ever was. Plus when vampires bite you in this series, their saliva has a kind of drug in it that makes the experience pleasurable. So if steamy vampire scenes are what you’re looking for, then you’ll get it in spades.
