What are some good books (preferably series) to read?

I need some good books to read that have romance, but also have something exciting action going on, not just the sappy love story plot. Stories about fallen angels would be best

p.s.

i've already read (and loved) the mortal instruments, the hunger games, hush hush & crescendo, fallen & torment, harry potter, twilight, splendor falls, fire & graceling, as well as beautiful creatures & beautiful darkness, as well as shiver. Anything similar to those books would be great.

THANKS!

    You have a good and eclectic taste in reading. while I'm an older reader and avoid on the teen stuff like Vampire romance and Harry Potter type stuff, you Have read many of the books I have and like. The suggestion about Preston and Child novels is a good one. I like their books. A writer I have recently started reading is James Rollins, interesting and exiting adventure novels. If you don't mind old style discovery/adventure of lost worlds and civilizations or semi-historical fiction with sometimes almost supernatural overtones, check out H. Rider Haggard (King Solomon's Mines, SHE, The People of the Mist and many others) I love his stories. Dan Browns's novels are good. Try Alexandre Dumas, too, for the Musketeers series. Tess Gerritsen is good too (The TV show Rizzoli and Isles is based upon her novels. If you like Bones and Scarpetta, then Tess Gerritsen is right up your alley.

    The Puerta Tempus.

    It has a very intricate plot line. A lot of Twilight fans love it for the vampire/romance aspect. I know I do.

    I recommend the e-book though if that's an option for you since hard copy is a little expensive.

    Maximum Ride by James Patterson is a favorite of mine. It's about kids who were experimented on and now they have wings. I've read about 1/2 the books on your list.

    I would have to suggest James Patterson's Maximum Rider series. I purchased these for my teenage niece and she loved them. Hope I have helped you.
