As always with any recommendations, YMMV, but I found all of these had strong writing and engaging characters. Not bothering with links because I know you people have Google.
Eileen Wilks, Lupi series - Heavy on the magically binding instant romance, but fun nonetheless. Lots of werewolf clan politics. There's also some fun moments of family politics with the main character's Chinese family.
Non-human peoples: Werewolf, were-other, dragon, demon, gnome, etc etc.
Ilona Andrews, Kate Daniels series - Post-magical apocalypse Atlanta. Main character kicks ass. Love interest is a little too much of an arrogant ass for my taste, but urban fantasy writers love taking the the "werepeople have pack structure" thing and making their male lead "alpha." Kate doesn't put up with too much of his shit. Lots of mythology from varied sources. Does something with vampires I had not seen before and like very much.
Non-human peoples: were-everything, vampire, gods, various and sundry from every possible myth
Patricia Briggs, the Mercy Thompson series - One of my favorite series. Mercy is a half-Crow shapeshifter who grew up in a werewolf pack. She's smart and mischievous. The first couple of books make it look like she's going to acquire a harem, but fortunately the author rethinks. There's some missteps in the books, but by and large the author successfully creates some fascinating nonhuman cultures. Her Faerie folk, in particular, seem to be pulled from every European myth and fairy tale ever. There are no Tolkien elves.
Non-human peoples: werewolf, werecoyote, vampire, all possible iterations of Fae
Michelle Sagara, Chronicles of Elantra series - This is the only one of these that does not take place on modern-day Earth. It's set on an alternate world that is roughly medieval/Renaissance, but in a large city populated by six different races. The high elf analogues act (refreshingly) like arrogant assholes. The main character is essentially a beat cop who moonlights as a midwife; she's very vividly and roundly written.
Non-human peoples: bipedal lions, winged people, psychic people, dragons, high elf analogues
