You're So Vein by Christine Warren
Finding a new author to try in the paranormal subgenre can be difficult. New releases are often part of a larger series--which can be confusing for those who haven't read the previous novels. Fortunately, this wasn't the case for Warren's newest, You're So Vein. Although obviously the newest in a series about the "Others," Warren manages to strike a good balance between important backstory/explanations and skimping on the main story line.
I really liked ALL of the characters--even the extremely witchy heroine that no one else seemed to be able to stand.
Although not as unique in voice as J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood, the characters and feistiness found in Warren's Other series makes it well worth the effort of tracking down the previous installments.
