Erin McCarthy: Vegas Vampires

If you're looking for a light read, with a little humor and a little romance, try Erin McCarthy's Vegas Vampires series. From the jacket cover of High Stakes:
He's a bloodsucking freak of nature. But, unlike other politicians, Ethan Carrick is actually a nice guy. Not to mention a very hot, wealthy, casino-owning vampire. It's an election year for vampires, which means he'll first have to escape his opponent's hit men. Then he'll have to find a suitable First Lady, preferably here in Vegas.
Jane Austen, it is not, but McCarthy writes with wit and lighthearted humor, writing strong female characters that you'd want to go shoe-shopping with. The city of Las Vegas shines bright as a character in it's own right in the series, and her vampires are hunky, yet fallible and charming.
