Kelley Armstrong's No Humans Involved is part of her Women of the Otherworld series and features reality TV. Jaime Vegas is one of three mediums brought to a house in Los Angeles for a TV special on raising a ghost. But when Jaime finds some secret cameras and discovers that the producers have been giving out false information, she realizes the mediums are being set up as the unwitting cast of a different kind of TV show. Jaime has another reason for not wanting too much scrutiny: She's a necromancer who can see ghosts, raise the dead and knows all about the existence of vampires, werewolves, witches and so on. She is on an interspecies council that watches over (and keeps apart) humans and supernaturals. Jaime feels peculiar and unfamiliar presences in the garden that turn out to be partial ghosts. She has to find out how these wounded spirits were created as well as keep an eye on her partner, a werewolf she may be falling for. With its fast-paced action and steamy scenes, Armstrong's novel is a must for fans of Laurell K. Hamilton and other paranormal romance authors.
