What about Patricia Wrede's Mairleon the Magician and Magician's Ward,
as well as Sorcery & Cecilia and The Grand Tour.
Also, what about Angela Thirkell? (http://www.angelathirkell.org/) Both
romantic, humorous, and basically fluffy.

Tanya Huff's _Summon the Keeper_, _The Second Summoning_, and _Long Hot
Summoning_ spring to mind.
