Book 4 - Summer Knight - Harry’s girlfriend’s a vampire, and not only that, Queen Mab of the Faerie Winter Court has him in her debt.

See book review of Blood Rites.

Book 7 - Dead Beat - Harry’s roommate’s a vampire, and he has someone out to get him. When Harry’s police officer friend Karin Murphy is threatened, he’s forced to find an ancient artifact with the power to control ancient spirits far beyond anything he’s dealt with before.
