A friend of mine introduced me to Nalini Singh with a book. Said book was called Angel's Blood. This is a paranormal genre book. If you are into paranormal and have a open mind and imagination you will probably like this book. Below is a little Excerpt:
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she's the best—but she doesn't know if she's good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, only one thing is clear—failure is not an option...even if the task is impossible.
Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.
The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other…and pull her to the razor's edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn't destroy her, succumbing to Raphael's seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break…
This is some serious paranormal writing and although there is a romance factor there is more of a intrigue and action factor. Not for someone with a weak stomach i guess either.
It was a different kind of read for me although I've read quite a few paranormal books this one has a little bit of a different twist that i was used to. I'd give it 5 Modokker book pick stars.

Angel's Blood came out last year in March of 2009. If you read that and like it her next release in the series is going to be Archangel's Kiss which is due out February 2010. Below is a excerpt of that book.
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux wakes from a year-long coma to find herself changed—an angel with wings the colors of midnight and dawn—but her fragile body needs time to heal before she can take flight. Her lover, the stunningly dangerous archangel Raphael, is used to being in control—even when it comes to the woman he considers his own. But Elena has never done well with authority…
They’ve barely begun to understand each other when Raphael receives an invitation to a ball from the archangel Lijuan. To refuse would be a sign of fatal weakness, so Raphael must ready Elena for the flight to Beijing—and to the nightmare that awaits them there. Ancient and without conscience, Lijuan holds a power that lies with the dead. And she has organized the most perfect and most vicious of welcomes for Elena…
