Okay.  Sharon Lee & Steve Miller (team, married) write space opera, wizards & space ships with romance, ditto another married team, Debra Doyle & J. MacDonald (who also write a childrens series about an apprentice wizard & his friends.  Oh, and they've got 1 pb out about the Civil War era & magic on a U.S. ship)  And Patricia C. Wrede's regency romances with wizards, starting with Sourcery & Cecelia.

The Boston Globe today had an article about writers who started out writing out fan fiction and eventually became published authors of their own books. The authors they talked about? Debra Doyle and J MacDonald.

Waaaaay back in college I read Sorcery & Cecelia. I could never remember who wrote it. Now I know.

She actually co-wrote it with Carol (oh, dear, I'm going to get the spelling wrong!  Oh, wait, I've got one of her other books here.) Make that Caroline Stevermer.  They started it in their writers group as something called 'the persona game' where they each pretended to be a character writing to the other.  The first one to write creates the world it's set in & explains why they are writing instead of picking up the phone.

No, actually, I accidentally put my reply in the middle of your quote.  I've fixed it now (No baby quotes!), does it make more sense to you?  And good evening, twin.

Do, both of you, then go to the other things they wrote. 
Originally it was the one.  Later Wrede did 2 other books in the same world, but with different characters, slightly less funny.  "Marielon the Magician" (I've probably mis-spelled his name, but oh, well.) and the sequel to it, 'The Magician's Ward'.  Later they did the other 2.
Come to think of it, the co-author's other work that I looked up her name on, has 2 that fit this category too.  'A College of Magics', & 'A Scholar of Magics'.

Hmmm, this is my favorite genre, so let's see if I can make up a list of urban fantasy:

Lilith Saintcrow (all hail the queen!)
Patty, of course,
Charlaine Harris
Rob Thurman
Carrie Vaughn
Kim Harrison
Jim Butcher
Keri Arthur
Naomi Novik
Karen Chance
Wen Spencer
Laurell K. Hamilton
Mark del Franco
Jeanne C. Stein
Robin McKinley (Sunshine)
Eileen Wilks
Kelley Armstrong
Rachel Vincent
Tanya Huff

Vicki Pettersson is okay, as is Rachel Caine.

And Linnea Sinclair is another of my all-time favorites, but she's more scifi/romance - equally both.

I'll think more on the paranormal romance, but I'll get started some:
Marjorie Liu (***)
JR Ward (***)
CT Adams & Cathy Clamp
Christine Warren
Karen Marie Moning
Lori Handeland
Jacquelyn Frank
Gena Showalter
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Lynsay Sands
Shana Abe
There are many people – happy people, it usually appears – whose thoughts at Christmas always turn to books. The notion of a Christmas tree with no books under it is repugnant and unnatural to them. – Robertson Davies (1997)

I'd be delighted rather than sad, more goodies to look forward to!
