Book rec, anyone?

Does anyone have a book or series rec for me? I'm looking for something in the paranormal romance, urban fantasy, or fantasy romance genres. And adult, please. I have nothing against YA books -- I've read Hunger Games -- but that's just not what I want to read at the moment. I spend so much time reading to my kids that I just don't want to read anything close to kids' fiction in my "free" time. If it helps, I like Karen Marie Moning's Fever series and Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series.

I don't have much time to read anymore, but I can eke out a few minutes a day. It's something I miss, desperately. Many moons ago, I was a classic bookworm. Anyway, today I just want to be swept away for a little while, and it's ok if it takes me months to finish. Extra points if there's a good 'ship I can sink my teeth into. And I can handle a few typos, but if the writing is riddled with them, I can't stomach it; the editor takes over and I can't enjoy the story anymore.

Still with me? ;) Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

P.S.
If you want to give me recs for books outside the aforementioned genres, that's great, too. I'm not in the mood for lit fic right now, but I can hold the recs for later. :)
