Usually, I'm not a big neck-biter fan. But Diane Whiteside's entire Texas Vampires series (incl. Hunter's Prey) is very good. The others are 1) Bond of Blood; 2) Bond of Fire; 3) Bond of Darkness.
I recently read Sarah McCarty's "Caleb" (Shadow Wranglers series, book 1) but didn't care for it. She takes a few too many liberties with her vamp's abilities and they stretch way beyond the usual. Also, when they are in the middle of a crisis and they need to be able to do something supernatural, voila! they have that gift! *UGH*
I do recommend Sara Reinke's Dark trilogy: 1) Dark Thirst; 2) Dark Hunger; 3) Dark Passion.
Also featuring vamps but including other supernatural/paranormal creatures (valkyries, lykae/werewolves, etc.), you might like Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series. And if you like that, you might like Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series (warriors inhabited by the demons they unleashed from Pandora's box).
Like Meyer's Twilight series, all these stories are set in the real world but with supernatural/paranormal beings interacting with humans and others...
For something on the lighter side, and a shorter read, Margaret St. George's HQ American LOVE BITES is so good - on my keeper shelf.

Thank you guys!!! I appreciate your awesome feedback!! I have a couple of vamp books now: The Rogue Hunter by Lynsay Sands and The Undead Next Door by Kerrelyn Sparks. I havent begun to read them yet, but from what you all have said I'm anxious to! Gotta get my paper written first! lol! Thank you again! And keep your ideas coming,please! I'm all for romance, and this is a new part of the genre for me! lol! :) P.S. I think I'll be more likely to like the funny ones, just because with that kind of thing I like humor, but if it's a good love story with an excellent ending, I'm all for that too!
