I prefer David Wellington's Laura Caxton series to any of the vampire romances. Tough female cop kicks vampire arse (and gets her physical and emotional butt kicked quite a bit, too). The vampires are some of the nastiest I've ever seen in vampire literature (for instance, they change you by driving you to commit suicide). For the most part, I like my vampires as antagonists or maybe anti-heroes (a la Lestat in the first couple Anne Rice Vampire Chronicles), not sparkly lover boys.
