Blue Moon Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter by Laurell K. Hamilton

Laurell K. Hamilton has quite the following for her series of urban fantasy stories, narrated by the title character, Anita Blake. Anita is a mystery-solving vampire hunter who lives in a parallel universe quite similar to our own, except for the public existance of vampires and shapeshifters.
