Night World series by L.J. Smith
(taken from the books) The Night World isn't a place. It's all aorund us. It's a secret society of vampires, werewolves, witches, and other creatures of darkness that live among us. They're beautiful and deadly and irresistible to humans. Your high school teacher could be one, and so could your boyfriend.
The Night World laws say it's okay to hunt humans. It's okay to toy with their hearts, it's even okay to kill them. There are only two things you can't do with them.
  1. Never let them find out that the Night World exists.
  2. Never fall in love with one of them.
These are the stories about what happens when the rules get broken.

Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton
Vampires, guns, blood, gore and some sexual tension make up the better half of the Anita Blake series. I personally recommend the books up until Obsidian Butterfly, a book centered on my favourite character Edward (aka "Death") the cold assassin.

Angels & Demons by Dan Brown
I read this book during the time of the late Pope John Paul's death, so learning about the process of selecting a new pontiff was very interesting, but freaky since it was actually happening for real. The book has many twists and turns as it's two main characters, Robert Langdon and Vitorria Vetra try to discover the secret Illuminati and prove that the organization is still around and has taken to murder to keep active recently.
