The Guild Hunter series - These ain't your granny's angels. Let's just get that squared away right now. Arrogant, sensual, dominant, and they create vampires. Lots of naughty bad fun here.
From my Goodreads review of Angels' Blood:
Elena is a vampire hunter - although here it doesn't mean staking them, it means catching them to return the vamps to their angel masters so they can fulfill their 100 years of service (the price of immortality). In this world, for all intents and purposes, angels rule (there aren't any religious overtones, although if you can only deal with angels in the strict Christian sense, then this book isn't for you).
Raphael, New York's Archangel, needs Elena to find a vampire. The only problem is, it's not a human turned vampire, its an archangel turned vampire. Dealing with angels is risky business, and getting to know their secrets is riskier. Raphael is also very seductive and he's decided he wants Elena. Lots of action, some very hot scenes, good characters - its a winner. It's also probably the darkest, most UF-like PNR I've read in awhile.
I have book 2, Angel's Kiss, on my shelf right now. This romance is different in that the first 3 books follow the same pair (most romance series change the lead couple), although book 4, Archangel's Blade, will be focused on Dmitri, Raphael's right-hand vamp. It will be out this September.
