Author Sherrill Quinn
If you like paranormal, sci-fi and a good witch and demom stories check out author Sherrill Quinn. She has a great style and quite a few print and e-books to choose from that offer a wide variety within these genres. I particularly like the short story she included in the Belong to the Night Anthology called City of the Dead.
About Sherrill From Her Website:
I started writing fiction at the age of 12 when my sixth-grade teacher gave the class the opening line "It was a dark and stormy night" and told us to write a story. I'm pretty sure my story had ghosts and goblins in it, because even at that age I was fascinated with the paranormal world. I got sidetracked with college and a career in Human Resources, but in 2005 I rediscovered my love of fiction writing. My first ebook was published in February 2006, and in February 2009 I signed on with Kensington Publishing with my first novel, Daring the Moon.

She finally gets her chance and ends up defending herself against charges that she’s a dragon hunter. Once she’s done that, she’s faced with two sexy dragon men who want to protect her. And make love to her.

Angel and the Duke of Sex
Angelique Chadbourne had been trapped for 10 years in a loveless marriage while her wastrel husband chased after prostitutes in the East End of London. Now, in 1888--two years after his murder--she has ended her period of mourning and is ready to live life on her own terms. And a big part of that is learning what passion is all about. For that, she needs Harry Atherton, the Duke of Sexton or, as he is notoriously known in upper society, the Duke of Sex.
Harry has always had his eye on Angel, thinking her to be the perfect woman to be his wife. She's beautiful, gracious and intelligent--just the sort who would fit in his household and provide him with an impeccable hostess. To find out she also has hidden passions she wishes to pursue is the sugar in his tea. He's never been one to let an opportunity pass him by, and he's not about to start now. But there's evil threatening her. Jack the Ripper is in their midst and it's only a matter of time before he strikes again.

But when feisty Hannah Trueblood helps steal his cattle, Jax finds he's as much of a barbarian as the natives on this backwoods world--and stakes his claim on her.

It only takes a little moonlight to bring out the primal desire between two lovers...
Declan O’Connell has a history with Pelicia Cobb, but not the kind that’s going to help him win her back. It was bad enough that he broke her heart as a gruff ex-commando. Now he’s got another side to his personality, a furry, fierce side that goes a little wild under the light of the moon…
Pel wants nothing more than the chance to clean up the mess Declan made of her life—without his interference.

Animal attraction is only half of the problem...
Taming The Moon
Olivia Felan has a wild side, all right. Even ignoring the fact that she turns furry and feral once a month, her natural style is take-no-prisoners, full-speed-ahead, come-what-may. But when it comes to her little girl, she doesn't take chances. So when a big bad werewolf alpha steals her daughter, Olivia will do whatever it takes to get her baby back. And in this case, that means killing Rory Sullivan.
The trouble is, killing him would mean wasting one sexy beast. Sully is all man, all cop, and as of late, half wolf. When he meets Olivia, Sully’s a little glad he stuck his nose into his friends’ business and came out with animal senses--until he gets a whiff of the chaos following her around. Now he has to decide whether he can’t take his eyes off Olivia because she’s too beautiful--or because she’s too dangerous…
