Iron druid chronicles by kevin hearne. Nevermind, its not roamnce.

One of my very favorites is the guardian series by meljean brook, its exactly what you are looking for, plus the final book #8, was released earlier this year.

You could also try the guardians of ascension series, by caris roane. The main characters are pretty much angels, but the mythology in the books is not biblical. I thought those were pretty good too.

I tried 2 books by meljean brook, i found her too 'wordy' for my tastes. I also read part of caris roane and didn't like it but maybe I'll try a different one. Thanks!

What about PC Cast Goddess Summoning Series, or Kristina Douglas' The Fallen series?

Daughter of Smoke and Bone has "angels" and "demons" with their own mythology. Wonderful YA series.

Sharon Shinn's archangel series.  SF angels. 

Faith Hunter has an angel series, the Rogue Mage series.  But I don't think of them as romance.

I read the first, and did not get the rest.  I really like her Jane Yellowrock series.  This series was just a bit too tangled with good and bad.   Well, to be honest, Yellowrock is pretty tangled as well.  Rogue Mage was clearly not going to be a HEA.
