Hopefully I have this in the right section. I'm looking for recommendations for good vampire series that are not vampire-romance novels. So many I have run across lately are not really my kind of thing, ie- Twilight, Kiss of Midnight, the Black Dagger Brotherhood, etc. They are well written (my wife loves Twilight), so I am not trying to bag on them, but they are not my cup of tea. I am really tired of the: "My entire race is being wiped out and we are the only ones who can save them. But I'm going to spend the entire book looking for that one special girl, cause really I am just a misunderstood vampire". Not saying that there should be no romance, but I'm a guy, and when i read these all I can think about is Fabio with fangs on the cover. Anyone got some good recommendations that aren't too over the top with the romance?
